Simple Hamburger Steaks (Ready in less than 30 minutes)

Oh these are 'comfort food' delicious!  Especially served with smashed taters! 

Mix some spices into the burger, fry up the patties, fry up some sliced onions,

Simply scrumptious and flavorful...and frugal too.  

No doubt, we all grew up on burgers...and I love being able to 'dress them up' a bit...this is a pretty easy recipe. 

Make sure you brown the patties well...it's the dark pieces that stick to the pan that add much flavor.  This makes a fabulous gravy! 

Do try them soon..you may want to add them to your weekly rotation!!


1 & 1/2 lb. ground beef
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper (or more)
1 tsp. dry ground mustard
(or 1 Tb. prepared mustard) 
1 small onion, sliced thin
1 c. beef broth 
(or 1 can french onion condensed soup, undiluted)
1 (.75 ozs.) packet brown gravy mix
1/2 c. water
1 Tb. worcestershire sauce 

In a large bowl, add ground beef; sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and mustard; blend well, but don't overmix (that makes for a tough burger). Divide mixture into 4 patties. 

Heat skillet over medium-high heat. (Cast iron works great here). When the pan is hot, add steaks and allow them to cook without flipping for about 4 minutes.  Flip then cook for 4 more minutes. Remove steaks from pan and rest on paper towels. 

Remove all but 2 Tb. grease from the skillet; place back on burner and add sliced onions.  Cook until translucent, about 4 minutes.  

In small bowl, combine broth, gravy mix and water; whisk well.  Pour over onions; bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer; add worcestershire sauce.  Add patties to the gravy and simmer until done, just a few more minutes. 

Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and a veggie for a perfect meal!
