Described on the menu as: Marinated and Grilled Portobello Mushroom, Roasted Tomato Jam, Lemon Aioli, Arugula, Crispy Onion Strings I decided to make the knock off version.
- portobello mushrooms
- fresh basil
- salt/ pepper
- olive oil
- lemon/ lemon zest
- red wine vinegar
- chili flakes
- minced garlic
- dill (fresh or dry)
- fried onions
- burger buns of choice
Portobello mushroom marinate: butter+ olive oil (what ever ratio you prefer- I do more olive oil less butter)- total 8 tbs in whatever ratio, 2 cap full of red wine vinegar+ lemon zest + chili flakes
Tomato Jam: Tomatoes + fresh basil + honey to taste+ salt/pepper to taste + minced garlic
Lemon aioli: Mayonnaise + salt + fresh lemon juice + minced garlic + dill + lemon zest (I never really measure the ingredient for my aioli sauce I just add stuff until I get it to taste perfect)
Marinate burgers in the above marinate, generally speaking you want it to marinate for at least 5-6 hours, if you don’t marinate it long enough then you won’t get the right flavors in the burger it self.
You then want to grill the marinated burgers on a low heat about 3-5 minutes on both side without letting the mushroom to burn. The mushrooms will significantly shrink- so you want to use the biggest ones you find when picking a size so they shrink down to the size of a burger bun.
Lastly assemble the burger, grill the bun put down the aioli sauce add the grilled burger top it with the tomato jam, arugula and fried onions and enjoy!
