Beef, Ground | Onions | Butter | Herbs |
This is a nice recipe if you regularly get ground beef and are looking for something different to do with it. I adapted the recipe from Saveur. It's basically French hamburger.
About 8 tbsp butter
1 small white onion, finely diced
1- 1.5 lbs ground beef
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
salt and pepper
1/2 c flour
1/2 c red wine
1 finely chopped shallot (about a tablespoon)
2 tbsp capers
About 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
First, saute the onion in about 2 tbsp of the butter. Mix with the beef, the thyme, salt, pepper, and egg. Form patties. Then, dredge the patties in flour and set aside.
Add more butter to the pan along with the olive oil and cook steaks about 3-4 minutes per side, depending on desired doneness. Set aside to drain. Drain fat from pan.
Melt more butter in the pan, then add shallots. When they are slightly browned, add wine. Use wine to deglaze pan (scrape bits of meat, etc, from surface to form part of the sauce). When it's reduced by about a third, add capers. Remove from heat and melt butter into the sauce to make a velvety texture. Add parsley, pour pan sauce over beef, and serve.
This makes about 6 patties. We served it alongside an herby potato salad. I used the leftovers as brunch with spinach and a fried egg, which was wonderful.
