Recipe: Greek Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef sirloin
  • teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups thickly sliced button or cremini mushrooms
  • small red onions, sliced
  • red sweet pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into strips
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • kaiser rolls, split and toasted

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, half of the oregano, salt and pepper (try not to overmix). Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Set aside.
  2. In a large cast-iron skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onions and sweet peppers. Cook and stir for 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove skillet from heat. Stir in remaining oregano. Transfer vegetable mixture to a medium bowl; cover to keep warm.
  3. Return skillet to stovetop; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is very hot. Add beef patties. Cook patties for 12 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degrees F, turning once. (Reduce heat if burgers brown too quickly.)
  4. Serve burgers topped with vegetables and feta on toasted buns.
