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?!

Have been making this burgers for several times! One of my family's favorites. Especially love the caramelized onions that's definitely a hero part; sometimes we add some sliced tomatoes, dijon or whole grain mustard and we always enjoy these burgers!
