Saurkraut & Portobello Burgers: From The Ultimate Beer Lover’s Happy Hour by John Schlimm

 Pair with: Oktoberfest

¼ cup canola or vegetable oil

2 cups of Saurkraut

Caraway seeds, to taste

8 portobello mushrooms, black gills under the caps scraped away

4 potato bread rolls/buns or regular hamburger buns

Rub 4 large Portobello mushroom caps with canola oil. Grill the mushroom caps over medium-high heat, turning once, until tender and browned on both sides, about 8 minutes. Heat 2 or more cups sauerkraut (sprinkled with caraway seeds, if you wish) in a small saucepan or in the microwave oven until fairly hot. Spoon the sauerkraut onto the inside surface of the mushrooms. Tuck one mushroom into each of four toasted buns, and serve at once.
