Ingredients

  • 4

    portobello mushroom caps

  • 2

    teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus

  • extra for drizzling

  • 1 1/2

    pounds ground sirloin

  • 1

    small onion chopped

  • 2

    garlic cloves chopped

  • 1

    jalapeño seeded, chopped

  • 2

    tablespoons tomato paste

  • 2

    tablespoons dark chili powder

  • 1

    tablespoon steak seasoning blend (Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick recommended)

  • 8

    ounces smoked white cheddar sliced (or smoked gouda)

  • 2

    roasted red peppers drained

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves (or flat-leaf parsley)

  • Macho Gazpacho Vegetable Chunk Salad (see recipe)

Directions

Preheat grill pan or large nonstick griddle pan over medium-high to high heat. Brush mushroom caps with damp towel to clean them. Scrape away gills with a spoon. Combine Worcestershire sauce with balsamic vinegar, then whisk in 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. Brush mushrooms with dressing. Grill mushrooms on hot grill pan or griddle for 3 or 4 minutes on each side, until tender. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Combine meat in a bowl with onion, garlic, jalapeno, tomato paste, chili powder and steak seasoning blend. Form meat into 4 large (1 1/2 inch-thick) patties. Grill meat 4 to 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare to well-done burgers. Melt cheese over burgers during the last minute or 2 the meat is on the grill. A loose foil tent will help the cheese melt quicker. While the meat cooks, grind the roasted red peppers in a food processor with cilantro or parsley. To assemble, place a portobello cap-side-down on a plate and spread a spoonful or 2 of the ground roasted red peppers into the cavity. Top with a chili-smoked cheese burger and serve. Macho Gazpacho Chunk Vegetable Salad makes a great side dish. This recipe yields 4 servings.
