  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place all beef patty ingredients in a bowl, season and mix well. Heat a large griddle pan or frying pan on medium heat. Take a small amount of mince mixture and cook for a minute or so to check seasoning; adjust if required.
  2. Divide mince into four and mould into patties. Rest in the fridge until ready to cook.
  3. Brush mushrooms with sesame oil and place, flat-side down, in the hot griddle pan. Score for 1 minute then turn and score other side. (You may have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your pan.) Transfer to a baking tray and roast in oven for 6-8 minutes. Remove and cool.
  4. Add water to a steamer and bring to the boil. Add zucchini, snow peas and bok choy. Place lid on top and steam for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Transfer vegetables to a bowl and add grated carrot, cucumber, sesame oil, tamari, orange juice and zest, and toasted sesame seeds. Season and mix well.
  5. Drizzle olive oil in a griddle pan. When pan is hot place in the mince patties and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Take patties out and rest briefly on a chopping board.
  6. Place a mushroom on each plate, layer with tomato, beef patty, lettuce and gherkins then top with another mushroom.
  1. Us a skewer to hold in place, decorate with an olive if desired, and serve with a steamed vegetable salad.
