Easy to make, used the George Foreman for a quick grill. We liked the flavors, though ate them open-face (toasted bottom bun, mushrooms, patty, tomato and lettuce on top). Served with CL's companion Shoestring Fries with Garlicky Mayo. Pretty good.

This dish was very easy to put together and had great flavor. Another plus is that it's basically a one bowl and one pan recipe. It's great for a weeknight meal, I paired it with some fresh green beans. Since I watch my carbs, I did not use the hamburger buns. The sauce thickens just perfectly. I will make this again!

My family really liked this recipe, even my picky 3-yr-old. I didn't put the burgers on buns but served it over rice instead. I also used Heinz 57 in place of the steak sauce they recommended and added a bit more beef broth to the sauce. I will be making this one again!

I agree with previous reviewer that mushrooms didn't add any excitement to the burger. The meat mixture, even for 92% lean, made a juicy burger. The burgers were big - really too much for me, let alone the kids. I might try the recipe again, maybe adding a little sherry to the mushrooms instead of steak sauce.

Typically, I'm of the opinion that ground sirloin makes an inferior hamburger, but this recipe was flavorful enough to overcome that challenge. The burgers were very tasty (though I did add a little extra black pepper and dried thyme and savory to the outside of the patties), but the mushroom sauce left much to be desired in the way of excitement. It smelled great but tasted rather flat, in my opinion. I might try adding worcestershire or something meatier tasting to the ingredients of the sauce, next time.

Good, quick dinner. Since my kids won't eat mushrooms, I used 1/2 of an onion, thinly sliced in place of the mushrooms. I also served without the bun. The gravy was so tasty, next time I'll make more and serve over mashed potatoes.

Yummy. Used Tastefully Simple Merlot Steak Sauce and used Pepperidge Farm Deli Flats to reduce the carbs and calories.

Very tasty. I used A1 sauce in place of the Angostura because I did not find it. Next time I would use regular burger rolls or serve open faced to cut down on the amount of bread. Loved the mushrooms & sauce. A slice of Swiss cheese might be a great addition too.

I added some pepper and green onions to the mushrooms which made a difference in the taste. The burgers were solid. We will make this again.
