This sauce is great served the way I offer it,....but it is a delicious all purpose sauce that would also be perfect to layer in casseroles, to bake stuffed cabbage in, or simmer meatballs in.......or anything else you can think to do with it. It is a refreshing change to the all common Marinara Sauce. I don't know how well it freezes, but I am going to make extra next time, to do just that.

How to Make Beef Patties Smothered in Hungarian Onion Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Set the meat patties out on the counter to take the chill off and pepper them. Cover with plastic wrap.
  2. Prepare the sauce. In a large saute pan, heat the butter over medium heat. Saute the onions, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes or until the onions are golden in color.
  3. Add the broth, wine, worchestershire sauce, and bay leaf to the onions and boil gently for 10 minutes.
  4. Make a paste of the cornstarch, by mixing with the water. Add cornstarch paste, along with the tomato paste, paprika, and the garlic. Cook several minutes more.
  5. Now cook the patties. Salt them and fry, broil, or grill to desired doneness.
  6. To serve, ladle ample sauce over each patty. Best served with mashed potatoes, ladled with additional sauce.
