Hamburger Steak with Mushroom and Onion Gravy

Hamburger steak with onion and mushroom gravy makes a classic, simple recipe. This quick recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes.

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night craving something so bad that you could just taste it?

Normally if that happens to me, it’s over something like banana pudding or chocolate sheet cake or something sweet, but the other night it was for Hamburger Steak with Mushroom and Onion Gravy.

Not your normal craving, I’m sure.

Thankfully, my family loves it as much as I do so there were no complaints when I served it the next night for supper.

And I don’t think it has ever tasted so good.

Sometimes, I think the best ideas come to me when I should be sleeping.

Well, except that time when I thought it would be a good idea to reverse the direction of the ceiling fan while standing on the bed trying not to wake my husband in the middle of the night. Good things just don’t come from that – I assure you.

But back to this hamburger steak with mushroom and onion gravy.

You really should make this soon.

It’s absolutely like a big ol’ hug of a meal.

Here’s how I make it.

Start with your ground beef.

 

Add in some bread or cracker crumbs. Either work just fine and I usually just go with what I have on hand.

 

Now add in your egg.

 

 

 

Some pepper.

 

 

And some Worcestershire sauce.

We love that stuff around here.

 

 

A little bit of garlic salt and then mix it all together.

Form it into patties and cook over medium heat in a skillet or non-stick pan.

When done, remove from skillet and set aside on a platter.

 

 

Now, slice your onions and separate each slice into rings. Place into your skillet or non-stick frying pan over low to medium heat.

I like to use sweet onions for my mushroom and onion gravy, but use your favorite.

 

 

Add your sliced mushrooms in with your onions.

 

 

And pour on a little bit of olive oil.

Let them cook for a little while to get all nice and tender.

 

 

While your onions and mushrooms are busy making some deliciousness in your skillet or pan, add some beef bouillon to a measuring cup.

 

 

Add some water and mix together.

 

 

Pour 1/2 of the mixture over your onions and mushrooms and stir well.

 

 

Now stir a little flour into the other 1/2 of your broth.

Mix it all together really well.

 

 

Pour into mushrooms and onions and let simmer for a bit until it thickens and forms a gravy.

 

At this stage, you can either add your hamburger steak back to the pan with your gravy or keep the two separate like I do sometimes.

    I make these too and I crave them a lot! Comfort food for sure! I always make mashed potatoes to go with mine, and cook bacon pieces in the skillet along with the onions until they are both nice and brown…the house smells like onions for a couple of days, but I love it anyway! I am very hungry right now…and it’s all your fault! :)

    I order hamburger steak at a local joint with onions and mushrooms and now will try to make it at home. I had even looked online for a recipe, but found nothing that matched what I got at the restaurant until this…thanks for posting. About how long will it take for the patties to cook and would panko bread crumbs be okay?
