  • 453 gram Ground Beef 96% lean 4% fat
  • 200 gram Mushrooms
  • 0.5 teaspoon Salt 2 gram
  • 0.5 teaspoon Black pepper


  • Chop mushrooms very finely by hand or in a food processor.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Saute the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes, and set aside to let cool.
  • Once cooled, mix mushrooms into the ground beef with the spices.
  • Shape into four patties.

Fry in a pan over medium-high heat flipping halfway through the cook time:

  • Medium (pink in the middle): 7-8 minutes total
  • Medium Well (smidge of pink in the middle): 9 minutes total
  • Well Done (no pink): 10 minutes total


I find it easier to use a Hamburger Press to make the patties. Here are the best sellers from Amazon:
