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.
1 lb of ground beef.
⅓ cup of breadcrumbs.
½ tsp of black pepper.
1 tsp of salt.
½ tsp of onion powder.
1 minced clove of garlic.
1 tsp of worcestershire sauce.
1 tbsp of oil.
1 ½ cups of thinly sliced onion.
2 tbsps of all purpose flour.
1 cup of beef broth.
½ tsp of salt.
Mix the ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic and worcestershire sauce in a large bowl then form into thick patties.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and fry the patties with onion until browned. Place in a plate and keep warm.
Add the flour to the skillet and stir scraping bits of beef off the bottom. Pour in the beef broth gradually and season with salt.
Over medium-low heat, simmer for 5 minutes, constantly stirring until thick.
Reduce the heat to low and return the patties to the skillet.
Simmer covered for 15 more minutes.
I serve this with a big bowl of mashed potatoes!
Simple, easy and delicious! I love how good this plate is, especially with mashed potatoes and a delicious veggies salad aside! Give it a try, you won’t regret it.
