  • 2 pounds halal ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 ounces shitake mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 6 drops Sriracha

Step 1

Mix ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil. Form 4 patties. Set aside.

Step 2

Heat a heavy-bottomed pan over a medium flame. Add butter, onions, and garlic to the pan. Cook for 4 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 4 minutes on high. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3

Mix mayo and Sriracha; set aside.
