Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. To prepare onion, heat oil in large skillet and add onions, salt and black pepper, cook for 3 minutes on high heat. Watch carefully, so onions do not burn. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and allow sauce to simmer for 8 minutes. Add more broth if necessary. Once onions are soft and translucent, remove pan from heat and use.
  3. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Combine ground beef with seasonings and form into 4-5 equal sized, oblong shaped patties. Place onto grill and cook for 7-8 minutes per side. Once the internal temperature at thickest part of patty reaches 165 degrees F (75 degrees C), remove from heat, top with onions and serve.
