Let’s get on to the recipe, shall we?
I tested three recipes from Tasteaholic’s new cookbook: the Cheesy Meatballs Parm, Mediterranean Lamb Burger and the Cheesy Portobello Burger. They were all great! My favorite was the portobello mushroom burger.
I tried this particular recipe with 88% lean (recommended Tasteaholics), American Kobe Style beef, and grass-fed beef. All were good but the American Kobe style beef was absolutely amazing in this portobello mushroom burger and well worth the splurge!
I found this recipe very easy to prepare – it’s just 5 ingredients. The recipes did not call for any specialty ingredients or specialty kitchen items.
[NOTE] This cookbook will be especially useful for those folks who are new to low carb/keto eating and don’t know what to fix, those who don’t like to cook and those who don’t have the time to cook. It’s also for anyone who just likes to eat! Mmmm.
These Cheesy Portobello Mushroom Burgers are 4 net carbs per serving.

Cheesy Portobello Mushroom Burgers
- 2 large portobello mushrooms
- 10 ounces 88 % lean beef (I used American Kobe Style)
- 4 ounces grated cheddar cheese
- 1 ounce fresh spinach finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
- additional salt and pepper to taste
- Prep: Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Remove the stems from the portobellos, chop finely and add to the ground beef. With a spoon, scrape out the gills on the underside of the mushrooms and discard. Chop the spinach and grate the cheese.
- Assembly: Season the mushrooms with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Mix the cheddar cheese and spinach into the ground beef. (I used my hands. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.) Form two patties and press them onto the portobello mushrooms.
- Cook: Place the stuffed mushrooms on a small sheetpan or baking dish and cook for 20 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese to the top of each and pop back into the oven to melt the cheese or under the broiler to brown it.

Haven’t tried yet, but only using 8 oz of beef (what I had) its way under cooked :( did anyone have any suggestions? Issues with it being under done?
Hi Kelly. All ovens work differently (for example, the Thermador ovens in my new house are 50 degrees lower than the temperature I set – 350 degrees only heats up to 300 – frownie face). This is a Tasteaholics recipe and I used their recipe as written. I found that the beef was too undercooked for my liking, too, so I cooked it 10 minutes longer. -Kim
I have made this recipe several times. My husband loves it
How much chopped mushrooms are added to the meat? You only have listed 2 large portobello mushrooms.
Hi Abigail. This is a Tasteaholics recipe and there is no mushroom mixed into the meat. Instead, the ground beef and cheese are mixed together and placed on top of the portobello and they are cooked together. -Kim
The portebello stuffed with chopped beef is WONDERFUL. I added 2 Tbs chopped raw onions.
Thank you so much!
I’m so glad Kathleen. I love the addition of the onions. Enjoy your weekend. -Kim
Amazing! I tossed a spring mix salad with evoo, red wine vinegar and raw red onion then placed the portabella burger on top…sauted some cherry tomatoes for the side. Amazing and beautiful!
I made these and had to cook them almost twice as long. I don’t like burgers with any pink. But they were juicy and flavorful! I will definitely make them again. Simple and delicious.
Kim, this burger looks pretty INCREDIBLE!!! I am putting this on my MUST TRY list. Cookbook sounds great. Sounds like it would make a great gift also! I will check it out. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Katie. I was surprised that with just 5 ingredients it tasted great. The cookbook is certainly something that would help those who either don’t like to cook or desire very simple recipes and instructions for whatever reason. A gift would be perfect! Have a great weekend! -Kim
