Beef Burgers with Cabernet Onion JamPosted: August 12, 2015
Serving Size : 4
1 tablespoon butter
3 cups very thinly sliced red onion (from 2 medium red onions)
2 tablespoons coconut date sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt — divided
2/3 cup Cabernet Sauvignon wine
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is very soft, about 15 minutes. Add the wine and vinegar and cook until the liquid is nearly gone, 12 to 14 minutes longer (25 to 30 minutes total). Cover and set aside
Mix the beef, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper with a fork; form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Press your thumb in the center of each burger to form an indentation. Grill the patties 4 to 5 minutes, turn and grill another 4 minutes, and top with the cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted and the burger is cooked to desired degree of doneness (160° for medium).
Top burger with the onion jam.
