  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tbs worcestershire sauce -OR- soy sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups soft breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 tbs oil


  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dry rosemary or 4 inches fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup Merlot or semi-dry red wine
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream


  • Mix all meat patty ingredients, except the oil & water, in a large bowl. Form into 6 patties.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Brown meat patties on both sides. Reduce heat, add the 1 tbs water, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until meat is 160 degrees F (med-well) per a meat thermometer.
  • Remove patties to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the skillet with paper towels and heat over medium-high heat. Add butter and when butter begins to brown, add the mushrooms and rosemary sprig. Stir this constantly--you want the mushrooms to almost singe.
  • Add the merlot (or wine) and deglaze pan. Continue cooking over medium-high heat until wine is reduced by 50%. Remove rosemary. Reduce heat and stir in cream. Heat through.
  • Pour sauce over meat patties and serve immediately.
