Ingredients
















Cooking Instructions

1

Place cherries in warm water or beer and set aside to soak for half an hour or more. Melt butter in skillet and add thinly sliced onions. Cook on low to medium heat, about 20 minutes. If they brown, they’ll get tough, so be sure to let them cook down slowly. Once onions are translucent, add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and turn off heat. Add a pinch of salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Drain cherries; add to onion mixture.


2

Salt and pepper ground beef patties and grill. If you cook them on a stove, get the pan hot and cook them in a little butter 5-7 minutes per side if you want them to be rare or 9-12 minutes per side for well-done. Top burgers with cherry-onion relish and a hunk of blue cheese. For additional condiments, try some baby spinach, a smear of mayo and a little whole-grain mustard. Serve with a dark, smoky beer and sweet-potato chips.

Note: You can also use dried cranberries in place of cherries in this recipe. If you like a smoother relish, put it in a food processor and mix until it reaches the desired consistency.
