1 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce, divided

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium sweet onion, sliced into rings

8 medium sized mushrooms, sliced

1 tablespoon coarse salt

1 cup beef broth

2 tablespoons of the candied jalapeños brine (juice)

1 tablespoon flour

candied jalapeños, slices

Directions:

Combine the ground round, salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce in a large mixing bowl and form into 4 burger sized patties or 2 large steak burgers. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate until ready to use. Over medium-low heat, place about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the pan and add the garlic, onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle salt over the onions and mushrooms and cook for about 15 minutes until onions are caramelized.  Remove the onions and mushrooms from the skillet and cover with foil. Using the same skillet turn the heat to medium low and add the burgers.  Cook until done all the way through. Place on a plate and cover with foil. Return to the same skillet and turn the heat to medium and add the beef broth, candied jalapeño brine (juice), Worcestershire and flour. Whisk until bubbly and thickened. Salt and pepper to taste.
