Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Ah, the magic of seared beef! Sauteing the onions with sugar turns them into a meltingly sweet topping to dress up these hearty beef-and-bulgur patties.

Serves 2

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon bulgur
  • 1/4 cup boiling water, plus 2 tablespoons water, divided
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced onions
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 8 ounces 92%-lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste, (see Tips for Two)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • Lettuce, for garnish

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Combine bulgur and 1/4 cup boiling water in a small bowl; let stand until most of the water is absorbed, 20 to 30 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and sugar; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very tender and golden, about 15 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons water, vinegar and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Keep warm over very low heat, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Preheat the grill or broiler to high. Combine the bulgur, beef, tomato paste, parsley, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a medium bowl; knead thoroughly to combine. Shape into two 3/4-inch-thick patties. Grill or broil on a lightly oiled rack until browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Place the patties on buns, top with the caramelized onions and garnish with lettuce.
