Simmer ground sirloin patties in a rich tomato gravy to create luscious fork-tender burgers. Serve with steamed green beans.

Ingredients

  • 8 red potatoes, cut into 4 wedges each
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 medium-size white onion, sliced
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 6 (1-oz.) Swiss cheese slices
  • Chopped fresh basil (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Toss together potatoes, oil, and 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl. Spread potatoes in a single layer in a jelly-roll pan, and bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden and tender.

  2. Meanwhile, stir together sirloin, egg, pepper, and remaining 1 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Shape into 6 (3 1/2-inch) patties.

  3. Cook patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove patties, reserving drippings. Sauté onion in hot drippings 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, bouillon, and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until bubbly.

  4. Return patties to skillet; spoon tomato mixture over patties. Cover and cook 15 minutes; uncover and cook 5 minutes. Place 1 cheese slice on each patty. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Sprinkle with basil, if desired. Serve with potatoes.
