This has to be a first, two posts in a row where Tom actually ate with me. Don't worry, I won't have to change my blog name any time soon, he is still not going to try 90% of what I make, I just happened to get lucky picking two beef dishes. BUT I actually used bison for this meal, and he liked it. If you have not cooked with bison I highly recommend it. It has all the flavor of beef with less fat and calories. The recipe came from a Rachael Ray cookbook.
You will need:
Some mushrooms, ground meat, arugula, blue cheese, garlic, onion, tomato, worcestershire sauce, broth, and some bread.
Chop up your garlic.
Chop up your onion. I am using onion and shallot, because that is what I had!
Slice up your tomato.
Get your meat, onion and worcestershire together in a bowl, or a cute Pyrex dish.
Combine and make into patties. These are huge, but they shrink down when you cook them. Season them with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
Crumble your blue cheese if it is not already in crumble form.
Now we can cook! Get two pans on the stove, one with a little butter and olive oil.
Get your burgers down in one, cook for five minutes on each side.
While those cook get your mushrooms in the pan. Don't touch them for a few minutes then give them a stir.
Add in the onions and garlic and a little salt and pepper. Check those burgers!
Add in the broth or stock, bring it to a boil and let it simmer for about 2 minutes.
Right about now you want to start toasting the bread.
Stir in the blue cheese and you are ready to get this thing on a plate!
Get some arugula and tomato down on the bread and then top with the burger and the mushroom and cheese mixture.
This was so fabulous. I can't even blame the dog for this blurry picture. I think I was just so hungry and wanting to eat this that I couldn't get a good photo. Trust me, it was delicious and you want to try this!
