"But once in a while you might see me at In and Out Burger; they make the best fast food hamburgers around."
-Thomas Keller, Chef
This juicy burger is full of savory flavor and so easy to make. It's worth the extra step to brown the mushrooms and blend them into the burger. Delicious.
Worcestershire is a county in England. The sauce was, however, developed in India by Englishmen and originally bottled back in Worcester, England (hence the name). It contains vinegar, molasses, cloves, anchovies, tamarind, chili peppers, shallots, garlic and onion among other things. It has a great flavor and the low-sodium versions are indistinguishable from the traditional Worcestershire sauce.
