Spicy Pepper Jack and Mushroom Sirloin Burger


  • 1 lb. ground sirloin beef
  • 4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 4 buns


  • 1 (8 oz.) package baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional Toppings:
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Caramelized onions

Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. 

Divide the beef into four equal portions. Form into burger patties. Cook on the grill for 5 minutes per side, or until they reach your desired doneness.

For the mushrooms: (This can be done well beforehand) Turn a small skillet or saucepan on medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. The mushrooms will release a lot of water, but by the end of cooking they will absorb all the liquid in the pan. Cook for 7-10 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and liquid is absorbed. 

To serve, place the burgers on a bun and top with some sliced mushrooms. Add avocado and caramelized onions, if desired.
