Directions1. Pulse the mushrooms in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl and add beef, garlic, soy sauce, ¼ tsp. salt and a few grinds of pepper and mix with your hands until combined. Form into four ½-inch thick patties. 1. Heat 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties, season with salt and cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Top each burger with a slice of Swiss cheese, cover and cook until the cheese melts, about 1 more minute. Remove from the heat and uncover. 1. Toast the English muffins, then sandwich with the burgers and toppings.
Top with lettuce, red onion and pickles.
