Brett's Mediterranean Burgers

I use my meat grinder attachment to perfectly blend all the cuts down on the preparation time. If a meat grinder is not available, a food processer can be used to mince the vegetables, which can be added to lean ground chuck. This recipe is awesome, because the portobello mushrooms add moistness to the burgers. They can be grilled, broiled, or my favorite, frying in a non-stick skillet. Either way, the burgers are great!


2 lbs. chuck roast (or 2lbs ground chuck if you don't have a grinder).
4 fresh basil leaves
2 slices of red onion (2" diameter)
2 cloves garlic
1 Portobello mushroom (sliced into strips)
4 pickled artichoke hearts (four artichoke quarters)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
6 Kaiser rolls
6 slices pepperjack cheese
Lettuce leaves,
Plum tomatoes.


1. Using a meat grinder, grind all ingredients except the Feta cheese. (If using a food processer, mince the vegetables) 2. Combine the beef and vegetable mixture with the feta cheese. Form into six 1/3 pound patties. 3. Grill the burgers 7 minutes on each side. 4. Toast the Kaiser rolls lightly, dress with condiments. Top each burger with a slice of pepperjack cheese. 5. Serve and enjoy!


Try these burgers, you will be amazed. The taste is not overpowering, and the beef flavor still comes out. I like them with just mayonnaise and no other condiments, because the taste is amazing!
