Lord have mercy…there are just some meals that are the epitome of southern comfort food like hamburger steak and gravy! I grew up eating this meal alongside mashed potatoes or rice, sweet peas, dinner rolls, and ice cold sweet tea. It’s not the most photogenic dish but ahhh…the good ol’ days! We had it several times a month
The recipe I’m sharing with you today is for a country hamburger steak with no bells or whistles. Even though I love adding new things like bell peppers and celery and swapping out things occasionally, sometimes you just want a straight up southern classic. Pure, plain and simple.
Hamburger steak and gravy is exactly that way. Just beef, broth, spices onions, and flour. Maybe a little bit of butter and fresh garlic for good measure. And man is it a comforting, hearty meal.
1lb. ground beef
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 clove garlic minced
1tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
2tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
How To Make it:
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce.
Form into thick patties.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Fry the patties and onion in the oil until patties are nicely browned.
Remove the beef patties to a plate, and keep warm.
Sprinkle flour over the onions and drippings in the skillet. Stir in flour with a fork, scraping bits of beef off of the bottom as you stir.
Gradually mix in the beef broth. Season with seasoned salt. Simmer and stir over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until the gravy thickens. Turn heat to low, return patties to the gravy, cover, and simmer for another 15 minutes.
Serve with a big bowl of mashed potatoe
