Big juicy burgers filled with chilies, cheese and mushrooms, then grilled and basted with steak sauce. Use any type of cheese you like. When I have a cook out, and I'm making burgers, this is what my wife asks for all the time!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 (10 fluid ounce) bottle steak sauce, (e.g. A-1), divided
- 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
- 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
- 8 slices American cheese, divided
- 2 (4 ounce) cans chopped green chiles, drained
- 1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, 1/4 cup of the steak sauce, fajita seasoning, and dried onion until well blended. Form the mixture into 8 patties. Set aside 4 of the patties. On the other 4 patties, place one slice of cheese, some of the green chilies, and some mushrooms. Place the other 4 patties over the top, press down, and seal the edges so the goodies do not escape.
Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat. Lightly oil grate.
Place patties on the grill, and let them brown on both sides. Once they begin to brown, brush the tops with remaining steak sauce. Continue to grill for about 30 minutes, basting frequently with steak sauce, until meat is no longer pink, and the juices run clear. When the meat is ready to come off the grill, place the remaining 4 slices of cheese over the tops of the patties. Serve on buns, or just by themselves.
