Amazingly juicy steakhouse burgers with caramelized onions are so easy to make at home! Top with a homemade burger sauce and you’ll be in heaven.


Caramelized Onions:

1 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, sliced thin
1/2 teas kosher salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fig jam (optional)

Steakhouse Burgers:

2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon granulated garlic

Burger Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon ketchup

Other fixing:

Brioche Buns
Butter Lettuce
Ripe Tomatoes
4 slices Muenster cheese


For the onions: Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are completely soft and start to caramelize/brown. Don’t rush this. It should take around 30 minutes. Near the end add salt, butter, and balsamic to get some additional color and sweetness. If the pan is really dry, add a splash of water.

Optionally, add a spoon of fig jam to the skillet for extra sweetness. Remove caramelized onions from the heat.

For burgers: Add Worcestershire sauce to meat and shape into four 8-oz patties. Put a thumb-sized divot in the center of each patty and season well with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic.

Grill burgers over medium-high heat for 6-7 minutes per side or until they reach an internal temperature of 140˚F for medium burgers.

Serve burgers on toasted buns with burger sauce, lettuce, tomato, and caramelized onions on top.
