Yield: 4 servings
|2 teaspoons||Olive oil|
|4 cups||Onion(s), sliced (4 med)|
|2 teaspoons||Balsamic vinegar|
|Salt to taste|
|¾ pounds||Lean ground beef|
|2 tablespoons||Tomato paste|
|¼ cup||Parsley, chopped|
|¼ teaspoon||Black pepper|
|Split and toasted|
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; saute 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 tsp 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.
