For Meat Patties:
1 1/4 pound ground chuck
1/4 cup fresh minced parsley
2 tablespoons scallion, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups onions, sliced
1 teaspoon sugar (I used Splenda)
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 cups beef broth
1/4 cup dry red wine
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

For Cheese Toasts:
4 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese, shredded
4 slices French bread or baguette, cut diagonally (1/2 inch thick)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
Pinch of paprika
1/4 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated.

For Beef Patties:
Combine chuck, parsley, scallion, salt, and pepper. Divide evenly into 4 portions and shape each into 3/4 - 1 inch thick oval patties. Place 2 tablespoons flour in a shallow dish; dredge each patty in flour. Reserve 1 tablespoon flour.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and saute 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove from pan.

Add onions and sugar to pan; saute 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste; saute 1 minute, or until paste begins to brown. Sprinkle onions with reserved flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and wine, then add the salt and thyme.

Return meat to pan and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.

Serve steaks on Cheese Toasts with onion soup ladled over. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan.

For Cheese Toasts:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place bread on baking sheet.

Combine butter, garlic, and paprika, and spread on one side of each slice of bread. Combine cheeses and sprinkle evenly over butter. Bake until bread is crisp and cheese is bubbly, 10-15 minutes.

04/23/08 - I made without the cheese toast. It was super in flavor. I made the patties ahead and refrigerated them until ready to cook. I floured them at that time. I made the sauce ahead and just heated it up when the patties were cooked.
