dp spotlight sf Recipe: Burger with Honey-Caramelized Onions

PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOK TIME: 10 mins

These are not your average burgers. They're the no-fuss, minimal-ingredient burgers that will make you think you're dining out. This recipe allows these simple, flavourful ingredients to shine – no eggs or breadcrumbs in these patties…just 100% grass-fed ground beef, salt, and some fresh ground pepper.

For an easy & delicious sidekick to these burgers, you can never go wrong with roasted sweet potato fries and a simple salad.

We often find great ingredients make prep so much easier - just let them do all the work!



Servings: 4

1 lb of 100% grass-fed ground beef
2 tsp of kosher salt
1 tsp of fresh ground pepper
1 tbsp of butter (preferrably, 100% grass-fed!)
1 medium size white onion, cut into strips
1 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp of cooking oil (avocado oil works well)
4 hamburger buns (toasting optional)
4 thick slices of aged cheddar cheese (optional)
Other suggested condiments include Dijon mustard and sauerkraut 


Take the ground beef out of the fridge and let come to room temperature for 30 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, season the ground beef all over with the salt and pepper.  Mix well using your hands.

Form four patties with the ground beef that are about 3-4 inches wide and about 1 inch thick. Once patties are formed, use your thumb to make a small indent in the middle of the patties. The indentation helps the patty hold an even shape (rather than swell in the middle) as it shrinks during cooking.

Set a small frying pan to medium heat, and add the butter.  Once the butter begins to foam, add the honey and mix.  Add the onions and sauté in the honey-butter mixture for about 10 minutes, or until nicely browned.

While the onions are cooking, set a large heavy skillet (cast iron works well) on the stove on medium-to-high heat, and add the oil.

Once oil is hot, add patties to skillet and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes.  If you are making a cheeseburger, add the cheese once you flip the patties.

Remove patties from skillet and place in sliced burger buns.  Allow cooked patties to rest for a few minutes before eating – this can be done while you’re adding condiments or garnishes.
