How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until deep golden, about 40 minutes. Add the water and scrape up any browned bits. Cook until the liquid evaporates, about 5 minutes. Season the caramelized onion with salt and pepper; keep warm.

Step 2    

Gently shape the sirloin into four 1-inch-thick patties. Season generously with salt and pepper. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the oil. Cook the burgers over moderately high heat until deep brown outside and medium-rare within, about 6 minutes per side. During the last 2 minutes, top the burgers with the cheese and cover loosely with foil so the cheese melts. Transfer the burgers to the buns, top with the caramelized onion and serve with a side of lettuce, tomato and pickles.

Review Body: This is an adulteration, and not in a good way. You should name it the heart healthy burger for cardiac patients, NOT a MINETTA burger, which this, in no way, resembles it's namesake. Start with the meat. In your opening description you state it's a Pat La Frieda blend of short rib and brisket (25-30% fat content), yet your recipe calls for ground sirloin (10% fat), which puts it in a position to make a nice hockey puck, not a juicy burger. You can actually order La Frieda burger blends online, BTW. Your recipe also calls for melted cheese. If you ever actually have dined at Minetta Tavern, you'd know they frown on adding cheese to their burgers, and let you know strongly.
