To assemble, place bottom halves of rolls on platter, In the following order, top each with one burger and one veggie cup. Fill top half of roll with mushroom sauce and invert onto burger. Serve and Enjoy!
This burger was inspired by our love of Philly Cheesesteaks along with the desire to work in some fresh veggies (gets rid of the guilt!)
It is tangy and delicious and comes complete with the drip of juice running down to the elbow! You may end up with more of the mushroom sauce than required to fill the burger buns, but this is wonderful for serving on the side with a fork!
Although I prefer red wine with almost everything, the veggies in this dish also pair well with a white.
