1 tablespoon water or broth
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon steak sauce
1 pound ground beef, 95 percent lean
In a small saucepan, heat oil. Cook onions and garlic over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add water and carrots. Cover pan and cook 10 ? 15 minutes or until carrots are tender. Spoon carrot mixture into small food processor. Add salt, pepper, thyme, and steak sauce. Blend until smooth. In a large bowl, combine carrot mixture and ground beef. Mix with a large spoon until blended. Form into 4 patties. Grill or cook in a skillet over medium- low heat until completely done. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
