Directions

Preheat oven to 400˚F.

Place the shiitake mushrooms on a parchment line sheet tray. Brush each cap with oil, season with salt and pepper and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

While the mushrooms cook, prepare the burgers. Combine beef, green onions, ginger, ½ tsp salt, garlic powder and onion powder. Divide into 8 equal portions. Working with one portion at a time, shape each portion thin patties, about 3-4” wide, making 8 thing patties total.

Place 1 shiitake mushroom into the center of each of 4 of the patties. Top each with remaining 4 patties and press down along the edges to seal and encase the mushroom. You should have 4 total burgers.

To make coleslaw: In a large bowl combine, mayonnaise, vinegar, coleslaw mix and sesame seeds.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium high heat. Lightly brush grill grates with vegetable oil.

Grill burgers about 7 minutes on each side or until desired level of doneness. About 2 minutes before removing from the grill, brush each burger with 2 tbsp of teriyaki sauce.

To serve, place 1 burger on bun and top with coleslaw.
