Okay-this was one of those "out of necessity" ideas that turned out okay.Problem arose when I ran out of something to top burgers (seasoned turkey burgers in our house)-No ketchup,no mustard...But balsamic vinegar,honey.onions and olive oil on hand-Prob would go great on steak also.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pan fry your burgers or steak.
  2. Keep warm (let steak rest).
  3. Add onions to pan and brown to caramelize.
  4. Remove onions.
  5. To brown bits in pan over medium heat add 1/2 to 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar (inexpensive balsamic is fine-you're gonna cook it down),honey,olive oil,soy sauce,dash of salt,pepper and garlic powder.
  6. Whisk together,bring up to a rolling boil for a few minutes,then bring back down to a simmer (bout 5 minutes total) whisking ingredients to thicken.
  7. Return onions to pan,coat with sauce and bring to temp (bout a minute).
  8. Serve over burgers or steak.
  9. Note-has sweeter taste-you may omit honey if too sweet,since you are cooking down the balsamic and condensing the sweetness).
