1 pound ground beef (93% lean)
2 teaspoons steak seasoning blend
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 ounces portobello mushrooms
4 hamburger buns, split
4 Swiss cheese slices

For Jalapeno Aioli:
2 jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For Zucchini Fries:
3 medium zucchinis
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend

Garnish options:
4 lettuce leaves
4 tomato slices

Combine ground beef and steak seasoning in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Set aside.

Heat sauté pan over medium until hot. Add olive oil and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place patties on grill grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes), until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160 degrees. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place buns, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese slice.

To make the Jalapeno Aioli:
Place jalapeno on grill grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill). Remove from grill and let cool. Once cool, remove the stem and seeds, and dice into 1/4-inch cubes. In a medium-sized bowl combine grilled jalapeno, mayo, lime juice and salt. Set aside.

To make the Zucchini Fries:
Cut zucchini in half and again lengthwise, then cut in 4-inch strips and place into a medium-sized bowl. Coat zucchini with olive oil and steak seasoning and toss. Place zucchini on the grill and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Once soft remove from grill and set aside.

The Burger Build
Line top bun with 1-2 tablespoons of aioli mixture; add lettuce and tomato, if desired. Top each burger with mushrooms and place them on bottom buns. Close the sandwiches and serve with zucchini fries.
