Step-by-step Instructions:

  1. Preparation: Start by cleaning the Portobello mushrooms. Remove the stems and scrape the gills.
  2. Burger Patties: In a bowl, combine the lean ground beef, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Form two equally sized patties.
  3. Grilling: Heat up your grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, place the beef patties on it, cooking for about 4 minutes on each side or until your preferred doneness is achieved.
  4. Mushroom Caps: After removing the patties, place the Portobello caps on the grill. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Potato Wedges: Preheat the oven to 400°F (204°C). Cut the potatoes into wedges, toss them in olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
  6. Assembly: To assemble the Portobello Beef Burger, place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of the bun. Add the beef patty, followed by the tomato and onion slices. Top it off with the grilled Portobello cap. Repeat for the second burger.

Tips:

  1. For extra flavor, consider marinating the beef patties in some spices or herbs for a few hours before grilling.
  2. If you’re not a fan of raw onions, you can grill them alongside the Portobello mushrooms for a caramelized treat.
  3. Ensure the potatoes are spread out evenly on the baking sheet to ensure even cooking and crispiness.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve the Portobello Beef Burger and Wedges with a side of green salad for a refreshing contrast.
  • Consider adding a light yogurt-based dip or sauce for the wedges.
  • For a spicy kick, drizzle a bit of chili or sriracha sauce over the burger.
