Total Time:

25 min

4 servings

  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 pound ground beef (80 percent lean)
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar
  • 3 tablespoons shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • Oil, for oiling grill grates
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1 red onion, sliced into thick rings
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sriracha hot sauce
  • Arugula, for topping
  • In a large bowl, fold the onions into the ground beef, then add the Worcestershire, garlic powder, onion powder and some salt and pepper.

  • In a small bowl, mix together the Cheddar and Jack cheeses.

  • Form the meat mixture into 8 thin patties. In 4 patties, use your thumb to make a dent in the middle; fill the dent with some of the cheese. Sandwich with the remaining 4 patties, sealing the edges to close the cheese inside.

  • Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grates.

  • Cook the burgers to the desired doneness, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Grill the mushrooms and onions until tender and charred, about 5 minutes per side. Toast the buns, cut-side down, on the grill until marked, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and sriracha.

  • Place the patties on the buns and top with arugula and grilled onions and mushrooms. Finish with a drizzle of sriracha mayonnaise and the top buns.
