       Title: BEEF BURGERS WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS
  Categories: Grbeef
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/3 c  Bulgur
       2 ts Olive oil
       4 c  Onion (s), sliced (4 med)
       2 ts Sugar
       2 ts Balsamic vinegar
            Salt to taste
     3/4 lb Lean ground beef
       2 tb Tomato paste
     1/4 c  Parsley, chopped
     1/4 ts Black pepper
       4    Hamburger buns
            Split and toasted
            Lettuce
  
   In a small bowl, combine the bulgur with  1/2 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 1/4 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,
   1/2 tsp salt and pepper; mix thoroughly but lightly.
   Shape into four 3/4-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.
