Beef burgers stuffed with melting mozzarella in pita breads with beetroot relish & roasted field mushrooms

Ingredients

1 packet Harvey Beef burgers

4 pita pockets

4 large field mushrooms

4 large bocconcini

Lettuce to serve

 

For the beetroot relish

400g pre-cooked beetroot

100g brown sugar

50ml red wine vinegar

ΒΌ tsp salt

Pinch of black pepper

Instructions

  1. Using a small knife, make a cut in the side of the burgers to the middle, large enough to fit the cheese. Stuff 1 ball of mozzarella into each burger, then use your hands to re-shape the burger closed around the cheese.
  2. For the relish, use a food processor to coarsely chop the beetroot. Add to a saucepan with sugar, vinegar & seasoning and simmer over a low temperature until the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Heat oven to 160c. Place mushrooms on a lined baking tray, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake for 8 minutes, then cool.
  4. Heat a grill or frypan to a medium hot heat. Grill the pita pockets quickly for 30 seconds each side. Rub the burger patties with a little oil, grill burgers for approximately for 8 minutes each side (full sized) until fully cooked through.
  5. Cut open the pita half way across the top. Fill with the cooked burger, mushroom and a generous amount of beetroot relish, finish with lettuce & serve immediately.
