Red Wine and Thyme Bison Burgers

Instructions


Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.  Add chopped onions and 1 tsp salt.  Cook onions, stirring periodically, for about 10 minutes.   Reduce heat to low and continue to cook until onions are very tender and caramelized, about 15 minutes longer.

Deglaze the onions with the red wine. Using a wooden spoon, scrape off any excess bits.  Cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.  Remove pan from heat and allow to cool.  This mixture can be made up to 3 days earlier and kept in the fridge.

In a large bowl, mix the ground bison with the cooked onions, shallots, thyme, and ½ tsp salt.  Divide meat into 4 equal parts and form into patties.  Sprinkle both sides of the burger with salt and ground pepper prior to cooking.

Burgers are best when cooked on the grill until the internal temperature reaches 160 F – about 4 minutes on each side.  These bison burgers go best with Dijon mustard, a sharp cheddar cheese, and arugula on fresh hamburger buns.

Enjoy!

Ingredients


1 lb ground bison meat

1 tbsp olive oil

3 cups white onions, chopped

¾ cup dry red wine

2 tbsp shallots, finely diced

¼ tsp fresh thyme, chopped

1 ½ tsp kosher salt, divided, plus more for seasoning

Freshly ground black pepper
