Gluten-Free Adobo Mushroom Elk Burger

As avid hunters and anglers, a large portion of the harvest is preparing our wild game and fish for the dinner table. We love wild game and fish, as it is a lean and wholesome way to nourish our bodies. It is my goal to help provide you with some new and creative recipes to spruce up your cookbook.

This gluten-free adobo mushroom elk burger is one of my favorites, and I am excited to share the secret ingredients in this simple recipe with you! Recipe based upon 2 pound of burger.

You Will Need:

  • Your Favorite Burger Seasoning
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Cheese of your choice (optional)
  • Elk burger (or any burger of your choice)
  • 1 Egg per pound of buger
  • 1 Minced garlic clove per pound of burger
  • 1/4 Lemon per pound of burger
  • 1/2 White onion
  • 1 package of portabella mushrooms
  • 2 Tomatoes or a box of cherry tomatoes
  • Lettuce Wedges to use as a wrap
  • Avocado
  • 2 tbsp. Plain unsweetened greek yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp. Adobo steak sauce

  • 1/2 cup of water


Step 1: Preparing the Burger

1.Empty the meat into a large mixing bowl.



2. Add two eggs to the burger.



3. Mix in your favorite burger seasoning, salt, and pepper to your liking. We used a local seasoning called “Scanlon’s Famous Ninja Rub“.



4. Mince two cloves of garlic and add to the bowl.



5. Squeeze 1/2 fresh lemon into the meat mixture.



6. Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce.


5. Using your hands, knead the meat and ingredients together until all ingredients are evenly dispersed. Throw the burgers on the grill or on a skillet and cook to your desired “done” level. Add cheese at the end if you wish.



Step 2: Preparing the mushrooms and onions

1. Slice up your onions and mushrooms into bite sized pieces.

2. Add olive oil to a skillet and let it warm up.

3. Add the mushrooms and olives to the skillet and cook until soft.

4. In a saucepan, mix the beef stock, water, greek yogurt, adobo sauce, and a dash of salt and pepper. bring it to a simmer.

5. Pour the sauce over the mushrooms and onions and let simmer for 5-10 minutes.


Step 3: Preparing the garnish

1. Pull lettuce wedges apart and use as a bun.

2. Slice tomatoes if necessary.

3. Slice avocado.


Step 4: Put it all together

Put a lettuce wedge on bottom, throw your burger on top, add your mushrooms and onions on top (be sure to pour a little of the sauce on top), throw on avocado and tomatoes, and finally throw a lettuce wedge on top. YOU’RE DONE!
