One Medium White Onion
1/8 Cup extra virgin Olive Oil
1/8 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Tsp Mediterranean
1/4 Tsp ground black Pepper
2 - 1/4 lb 85/15 ground Beef patties
Fresh Crumbled Gorgonzola Cheese
At least an hour ahead, slice the onion
and place in sauce pan. Add Olive Oil, Balsamic
Vinegar, salt and pepper to sauce pan and allow to
saute' on low.
You can use any good quality 85/15
ground beef as long as you make your patties uniformly
identical. They need to be approx. 3 1/2 to 4 inches
across and 1/2 inch thick. My choice is the (4
Omaha Steaks Burgers
Place about a "golf ball" sized amount
of gorgonzola cheese in the center of the bottom
patty, place second top patty over cheese, pinch
the edges of the patties together, and grill.
When it comes to
grilling these, I like to heat my grill up to it's
maximum temp, place the pattys in the grill with the
lid closed for approx. 4 mins. Then flip the
burgers and turn the burners all the way down to low
for approx. 6-8 mins. The grill will still
stay hot enough to finish the cook, the burgers will
sear nicely when you flip them, and the longer time
at lower temp will allow the cheese to melt
uniformly between the patties.
Plate with your sautéed onions as a
side, and serve without condiments on a bed of
lettuce, with your choice of gourmet bun.
