1 ½ Pounds Ground Beef
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Steak Sauce
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
8 Large Shallots, Thinly Sliced
¼ Cup Coca-Cola®
12 Buns or Mini Rolls, lightly toasted
Cheddar Cheese (optional)
MIX ground beef with next 4 ingredients. Form into 12 small, even patties. Set aside.
HEAT butter and oil together in medium skillet over medium heat. When butter is melted, stir in shallots. Cook until just beginning to caramelize, then add Coca-Cola.
INCREASE heat to medium-high and cook liquid about 4 minutes, until liquid has almost evaporated. Return to low heat and continue cooking until fully caramelized. (Do not allow shallots to burn).
WHILE shallots are cooking, cook burgers in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side. Top each patty with a slice of cheese if desired.
FILL each bun with a burger and a heaping spoonful of shallots.
