To.Die.For. That’s all you really need to know about this hamburger steak with onion gravy recipe.
Okay, there’s more you need to know, like it only takes 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish, which means that it’s a perfect weeknight dinner. Even those weeknights when you have t-ball and gymnastics on the same night.
My kids scarfed it down in 2 minutes flat. Well, okay, my daughter takes a bit longer to eat because she’s 5, but my son definitely scarfed it down and asked for more. Speaking of, if you have more than 2 hungry kids, be sure to double the recipe. The steaks are 4 ounces before cooking, so hungry kids might require more, especially if they had a swim meet or something.
The gravy tastes really naughty, like you totally shouldn’t be eating it, naughty. It’s really good, and tastes rich, and it’s ridiculously easy.
My one piece of advice is to NOT overcook the meat. If you overcook a hamburger steak, it gets dry and it’s not very tasty. Because these steak are just meat, salt and pepper, there isn’t a whole lot to keep moisture inside. If you’re looking to jazz the patties up, you could always grate an onion, which will up the juicy factor, or add some chopped or puréed mushrooms to the meat. You could also sauté some mushrooms with the onions in the gravy to make it a tad bit fancier. But trust me, make it today and serve it with oven roasted veggies like potatoes, carrots, broccoli, or green beans! You won’t be sorry!
