Steak Seasoning
Mixing Bowl
Medium Skillet


For the topping:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 large cubanelle pepper seeded and halved lengthwise, then thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound cremini mushrooms thinly sliced
  • sea salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

For the burgers:

  • 1 pound Beyond Meat Hot Italian sausage
  • 1 pound Impossible vegan ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning blend
  • 2/3 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley finely chopped


  • 6 slices vegan provolone cheese
  • 6 curly green leaf lettuce leaves
  • 6 pretzel burger buns


Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.

    Prepare the patties:

    • Into a large mixing bowl, crumble the vegan sausage and ground beef.
    • Add steak seasoning blend, garlic powder, and Italian flat-leaf parsley.
    • Using your very clean hands, mix and mash the ingredients until fully combined.
    • Divide mixture into 6 even portions. Roll each portion into a ball, then use the palm of your hand to flatten each ball into a patty of about 1/2-inch thickness.
    • Set the prepped patties aside, then make the pepper and mushroom topping.

    For the topping:

    • Into a medium skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the red onions, cubanelle peppers, and mushrooms.
    • Saute for 3-5 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
    • Season with sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste.

    Cook the burgers:

    • Over your preheated grill, place the burger patties on direct heat.
    • Grill for about 7 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.

    Assemble the burgers:

    • While burgers are still on the grill, add a spoonful of the pepper and mushroom mixture to each. Top each burger with a slice of provolone cheese then close the grill and allow the cheese to melt.
    • Place your buns face side down on the direct heat of your grill and toast for 1-2 minutes.
    • Place cooked burgers on the toasted buns and add any additional toppings.
    • Serve warm.
