Beef burgers with caramelized onions

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Bulgur
2 teaspoons Olive oil
4 cups Onion(s), sliced (4 med)
2 teaspoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Balsamic vinegar
Salt to taste
¾ pounds Lean ground beef
2 tablespoons Tomato paste
¼ cup Parsley, chopped
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
4 Hamburger buns
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.
