Making The Patties:
Divide the ground chuck or beef into 8 ball-shaped parts. Use your hands or any type of pressing device to press down onto the meat to make the patties.
Make sure the patties are slightly larger in diameter than the buns because they will shrink when cooked. However, you also need to keep an eye out on the thickness, as thin patties won’t have the same juiciness.
Cooking The Patties and The Onion
While the smokehouse burger uses raw onions, it’s always better if you caramelize them a little bit to get a sweet and savory flavor. Either cut your onion into a thick circle or slice them.
Season with salt and cook the patties on your grill or skillet and then caramelize the onions. If you are cooking the onions on a skillet, a trick is adding a little water to ensure they do not burn. When the patties are almost done, put slices of cheese on them for melting.
Sauteeing The Mushrooms
In a pan, heat up butter (up to 2 tbsp.) until they melt, and then put in the mushrooms. You can also cook sliced onions with mushrooms to sautee them together. Add a little bit of salt and finish cooking.
Toasting The Buns
You can use regular buns but toasting them gives extra flavor and texture. Start by slicing the buns in half, adding a little bit of butter, and toasting them on your grill or pan.
Preparing The Burger
Add BBQ sauce on both sides of the buns, then put sliced onion or onion ring, beef patty, and sauteed mushroom in that order. Enjoy your delicious home-cooked Smokehouse burger!
