In large mixing bowl combine ground chuck, ground round, 1 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour. With 1 tbs butter, grease silpat and non-stick rolling pin. Roll ground beef out on greased silpat into a rectangular shape approximately 12X6" about 3/4" thickness. Cover with plastic wrap and chill again for 1 hour. Preheat grill to medium high heat.

Cook for 4 minutes. Add mushrooms. Cook for 4 minutes more. Remove from heat. Toss in 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Set aside until vegetables reach room temperature. Remove ground beef from refrigerator. Place the 6" side of the ground beef east to west on a flat surface with the 12" side north, south. Stir vegetables so that the butter and seasoning evenly coats. Reserve 1/2 cup of vegetables for finishing. Spread the remaining vegetable mixture evenly over the ground beef. With help from silpat and spatula roll firmly south to north into jellyroll shape. Using a carving knife, cut roll into 6 1" patties. Gently pat patties to ensure even thickness.
