Recipe: Peppered Chopped Steak

I am not sure where I got this recipe, but we I have been making it for several years now. It is absolutely delicious and HEALTHY.

1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup cooked brown rice
6 tsp minced fresh parsley (I use dried parsley if I can't find fresh)
1/2 tsp salt (I usually don't add any at all)
4 tsp ground black pepper
Olive oil
1 onion thinly sliced into rings
1 1/3 cup grape juice (10 oz)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Mix the ground beef, cooked rice, parsley, and salt together until well combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal balls. Flatten the balls to make patties about 1" thick. Sprinkle the patties with the pepper on both sides.
Cook the patties on a hot oiled skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the center is done. Remove the patties and set aside. In the same skilled add about 1 tbs olive oil and add the onions. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes stirring often. Add the grape juice and vinegar and cook over high for about 8 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to about 1/2 cup. Keep a careful eye on the liquid and stir often. If you notice it getting too thick and sticky then your about to burn it.
Put a steak on a plate and top with the onions and sauce.
