INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 medium-size red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

PREPARATION:
  • Sauté onion in hot oil in the FIREDISC® over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until onions are caramel colored. Add ground beef. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, 5 to 6 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink.
  • Drain. Return beef mixture to FIREDISC®. Stir in tomato paste and Worchester sauce. Cook, stirring, 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture thickens and color darkens.
