Ground Beef with Mushrooms and Onions

This is a very simple recipe with a lot of possibilities. It can be prepared fairly quickly and easily (about 10 – 15 minutes). This dish can given a completely different character by using the various seasoning options.

I like the basic garlic and oregano version, but the other two seasoning options are equally good. One of the unusual ways to season this dish is to use toasted onions. Toasted onions used to be available in most stores in the spice section, but lately I haven’t seen them. You will have to find them either at a store that offers imported foods or you will have to obtain them online. You can add them dry after cooking or you can add them during cooking. I prefer to add them during cooking.

The third seasoning option is to use a little toasted sesame oil during cooking. Toasted sesame oil is available at most health food stores.

Ground Beef with Mushrooms and Onions

  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 10 oz Sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Medium onion
  • Seasoning

Divide the ground beef into 4 parts and make 4 patties. Grill the patties until done. Chop the onion and add to a frying pan. Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes over a medium flame. Add seasoning while cooking. Top each patty with a portion of the cooked mushrooms and onions.

Seasoning Options (choose one from the following):

  1. Salt, pepper, garlic powder (or granulated garlic) and oregano
  2. Salt plus toasted onions (chopped/minced)
  3. Salt, pepper and toasted sesame oil

First, divide the pound of ground beef into 4 patties, then grill them.

While the meat is cooking, chop the onion and add the chopped onions to a frying pan. Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes or until done. Season the vegetables while they are cooking using one of the seasoning options.

Top each beef patty with the cooked and seasoned vegetables. Serve hot.
