Quick and easy, the Hamburger Steak and Gravy meal is one of my go-to comfort foods.
- 2 lbs Ground Beef (85/15 for juicy burgers)
- 1 small onion finely diced/chopped
- 2 cups beef broth (2 bouillon cubes + 2 cups of water)
- 4 tbsp butter (not margarine, never!)
- 4 tbsp of flour (more or less)
- Prepare the beef broth by adding 2 cups of water and the bouillon cube and heat in the microwave or slowly over medium heat on the stovetop.
- In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp of butter and saute the onions until tender. Remove onions to the side for now.
- Make 6 to 8 patties from the 2 lbs of ground beef. Place in the same large skillet and cook over medium heat until the desired doneness. Remove cooked patties to the side for now.
- In the same large skillet, add the remaining butter, and flour and stir until all of the flour is incorporated. NOTE: You may have to add more flour or more butter until you get the right consistency. It should look slightly brown but smooth.
- Slowly add the beef broth to the roux and stir regularly until the gravy thickens to your desire.
- Plate the hamburger steak with hot mashed potatoes and some green veggies, like Green Beans. Top the potatoes and hamburger steak with gravy.
