DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, mix together beef, Worcestershire sauce, egg, bread crumbs, salt, black pepper, soy sauce and olive oil until combined.
  • Form into 4 equal-size patties, making sure not to compact them too hard, or they will become dense and heavy. Refrigerate until the caramelized onions are finished.
  • For the caramelized onions, heat olive oil over medium-high in a medium saucepan. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt, ¼ cup (60 mL) water, balsamic vinegar and sugar. Lower heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Remove lid, continue cooking to thicken the liquid and glaze the onions, about 3 minutes. Set aside.
  • When onions are halfway finished, preheat grill to medium-high.
  • Grill the burgers on one side until grill marks are attained, about 5 minutes with lid closed. Flip and grill the second side another 5 minutes. If burgers need more time to cook, move them to a cooler area on the grill to avoid burning. Finish cooking to desired doneness.
  • Fill each bun with a piece of romaine lettuce, then a burger, top with onions and a large piece of blue cheese.
