1 pound 93% lean ground beef
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1/4 cup thinly sliced onion, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 (8-ounce) package presliced cremini mushrooms
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup dark lager beer
8 (1.1-ounce) slices rye bread
4 (0.67-ounce) slices reduced-fat provolone cheese
1. Chop enough of the sliced onion to measure 1/4 cup. Combine chopped onion, beef, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions with moist hands, shaping each into a 4-inch oval patty. Press thumb in center of each patty, leaving a nickel-sized indentation.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add patties; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done
3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, remaining onion, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; sauté 3 minutes. Sprinkle flour over mushroom mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in beer; cook 30 seconds or until thick. Remove from heat; keep warm.
4. When patties are done, remove from large pan. Wipe pan clean; heat over medium-high heat. Coat 1 side of each bread slice with cooking spray. Place 4 bread slices, coated sides down, in pan. Top each with 1 patty, 1 cheese slice, and one-fourth of mushroom mixture. Top with remaining bread slices; coat with cooking spray. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned.
