Beef Burgandy Burger

This a delicious and delectable burger, bold in taste but distinguished in preparation. I created this recipe when informed on short notice that the CEO of the company worked for was coming in town and would be residng with me due to limited availiblity at hotels in the area. I had no money and no time. I did have a couple of pounds of ground beef, some wine, mushrooms, a packet of onion soup, and loads of creativity. Walla !!!The Beef Burgandy Burger was born. Since then the recipe has matured and taken its own name to fame.

1 small pack of onion soup mix
