Hamburger Steak with Carmelized Onions

Another healthy meal from the Weight Watchers book. It was good but too vinegary for my taste. Chris enjoyed it. So if you like balsamic vinegar you'll love this recipe. It's really simple and healthy.

**WW Points - 4 pts per serving (serving 1 patty and about 1/3 cup of onion mixture)

1 lb ground sirloin
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup beef consomme
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Combine sirloin, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning in a small bowl. Shape into 4 (1/2 inch thick) patties. Heat a large nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3-4 min on each side or until browned. Transfer patties to a plate.

Add onion to pan and saute for about 4 minutes. Return patties to pan. Combine consomme and balsamic vinegar; pour over onions and patties. Bring mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until meat is done. Serve with vegetables of your choice.
