The Hamburger Steak is basically hamburger cooked and served
with gravy for a meal that feels more special than regular cooked burger patties.
Most often the dish is served with
mashed potatoes or rice, green beans, and garlic bread.
1 ½ lbs. ground beef (leaner beef shrinks less)
2 tbsp. onion chopped fine
¼ c. bread crumbs
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
½ tsp. sage seasoning
Place ground beef in a large bowl and add eggs, onions,
bread crumbs, salt, pepper and sage.
Using your hands works best to get the ingredients well mixed.
Divide meat into four portions and shape into steaks.
Typically Hamburger Steak patties are made oval instead of round; however, round is fine.
Just don’t make them too thick, or they’re hard to cook through.
Cook the meat patties on both sides until browned and cooked through.
Then, set the patties aside.
Pour off hamburger grease and wipe inside of pan.
¼ c. butter
1 can mushrooms sliced (4 oz. can)
6 tbsp. plain flour
3 ½ c. water
4 bouillon cubes (beef)
Add butter to the skillet where the patties were cooked and let butter melt.
Pour drained mushroom slices into hot butter and cook for two minutes stirring.
Add flour and mix well.
A fork or a whisk works well for getting the flour mixed in.
Add water and bouillon cubes.
Cook on medium until the sauce thickens up.
If you like a darker colored gravy,
you can add Kitchen Bouquet or other browning ingredient to the gravy.
Place the cooked Hamburger Steaks back in the gravy and turn heat to low.
Let simmer on low for around 10 minutes.
