  3. Stir in garlic, and sauté for 1 to 2 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is fragrant.  Remove mixture from heat, drain off any extra juices or oil, and set aside.

  4. Meanwhile, as the mushroom mixture is cooking, add the black beans to a large mixing bowl and roughly mash them with a potato masher or the back of a spoon.

  5. Add in the cooked mushroom mixture, breadcrumbs, egg white, steak seasoning, and stir well until the mixture is evenly mixed.
