Beef Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Beef Burgers with Caramelized Onions Beef Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Nothing is more classic than a beef burger. Bulgur gives the nutty flavor, and tomato paste adds extra zing. The burger is topped with caramelized onions, which brings tons of yummy goodness. A juicy burger with a bottle of beer, isn't it the best pair in a hot summer day?!

4 cups onions
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
to taste
¾ pound ground beef
2 tablespoons tomato paste
¼ cup parsley leaves
¼ teaspoon black pepper
4 hamburger buns

In a small bowl, combine the bulgur with ½ cup warm water; let stand for 30 min, or until the bulgur is tender and the water is absorbed.

In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over low heat.

Add onions and sugar; sauté until the onions are tender and dark golden, about 15 min.

Stir in ¼ cup water and vinegar.

Season with salt and keep warm.

Prepare the grill or preheat the broiler.

In a medium bowl, combine the bulgur, beef, tomato paste, parsley, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper; mix thoroughly but lightly.

Shape into four ¾ inch-thick patties.

Grill over high heat or broil on a lightly oiled rack until browned and cooked through, about 5 min per side.

Blot the patties with paper towels. Place each patty on a bun, top with the caramelized onions and garnish with lettuce.
