  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a heavy bottomed sauté pan on over medium heat render bacon until crispy. Add onions, celery and mushrooms and sauté until golden brown.
  2. Deglaze with dark beer and reduce until dry. Put ingredients aside to cool. In the meantime ,place brioche slices on a baking sheet and using a pastry brush, brush lightly with soft butter.
  3. When cooked ingredients have cooled, mix thoroughly with ground beef. With the ground beef mixture, form 8 square patties approximately two ounces each.
  4. Heat a large sauté pan to medium high. When pan is hot, add vegetable oil and place patties in one at a time being sure not to overcrowd. Cook each patty until well browned on each side (about two minutes) then flip each one and repeat the cooking process on the other side.
  5. When patties are cooked, place on a baking sheet and top each one with a slice of tomato and one slice of cheese. Place the tray of brioche and the tray of burgers in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the bread is lightly golden brown.
  6. Assemble Iron Chef burgers by placing one patty on top of one slice of brioche and then topping with a pickle and another brioche slice.
