Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Use a knife and fork to carve into this tasty open-faced burger. Start with an English muffin, then add a seasoned beef patty and top with sautéed onions and mushrooms for a memorable weeknight dinner.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, and cook for 5 minutes or until golden. Add mushrooms and salt; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add vinegar; remove mixture from pan. Set aside.

Step 3

Combine the paprika and the next 4 ingredients (paprika through black pepper). Divide the ground round into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Coat patties with spice mixture. Grill patties 4 minutes on each side or until done. Place burgers on muffin halves, and top each burger with 1/4 cup onion mixture.

Maybe a 3.5. I made this a few years ago and my notes say it was very easy and we thought it was good to pretty good.

We enjoyed this basic, family-style recipe, but I used ALL the seasoning for just two burgers and was glad I did. I also added an extra Tsp. of vinegar and probably should have added one more. We ate this on toasted rye bread with a slice of swiss cheese and for sides, browned potatoes and steamed broccolini. I did find it a bit dry and next time will follow advice to add beef stock.

We loved this. Used the balsamic but also added Worcestershire sauce. I mixed seasoned salt and pepper into the beef, as well as some beef broth (because we used extra lean). A little fresh Mozzarella and it was perfect!

Only so-so. Even with adding a some beef broth to the mix, the burgers were bland and a little dry. The onion/mushroom mixture was good, but not enough to make this again.

I found this bland. I was expecting the mushroom and onions to be more like a sauce or gravy and the burgers to have more taste to them. I won't make again.

Made to recipe with few minor changes. Added some low-sodium beef broth to the lean ground round to bring up the juicy factor. Used fresh thyme for the burger rub & topped the cooked patties with a slice of low-fat swiss cheese. Everything worked really well together -- a good burger. Served with corn on the cob.

very good,I made the dish step by step and it was great. My husband and I were looking for good low cal meals and this will be a mainstay. I made oven fried french fries to go with burgers. A great meal for 450 calories for both dishes.

Very tasty for a quick weeknight meal. I used Worcestershire sauce - but I'm sure balsamic vinegar would be equally tasty. As some of the other posters mentioned, I mixed the seasonings in with the beef before cooking. Used extra lean ground beef -but probably a little juicier with ground round.
