Marinated & Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burger

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.

Ingredients:

  • portobello mushrooms
  • tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • honey
  • salt/ pepper
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • lemon/ lemon zest
  • mayonnaise
  • red wine vinegar
  • chili flakes
  • minced garlic
  • dill (fresh or dry)
  • arugula
  • 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!
