°1 pound lean ground beef
°1/2 cup cooked white rice
°1 egg yolk
°1 teaspoon of salt

°3 tsp parsley
°1/2 tsp dried thyme
°1 tsp olive oil

* Methods :

 To make the sauce: Heat the butter in a large sauté pan. Add the onions and cook over medium-high heat, until the onions begin 
Stirring occasionally. When the onions are slightly softened and turn dark honey brown, add 1/4 cup broth. Reduce the heat, cover and continue cooking, adding more broth as needed to prevent the caramelized bits at the bottom of the pan from burning. It should take at least 25-30 minutes to fully caramelize the onions. Stir in the flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Stir in remaining beef broth and tomato paste. Stir in the cider vinegar. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Adding salt & pepper to taste. Minimzie heat to low & keep warm.
To make patties: Combine ground beef, rice, egg yolk, salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, parsley and thyme in a bowl. Shape into 4 oval patties about 3/4 inch thick. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the patties for about 3 minutes on each side, or until a brown crust forms. Pour the sauce over the patties and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve hot with mashed potatoes or noodles. 

Enjoy !
