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 ½ of the mixture over your onions and mushrooms and stir well.

Now stir a little flour into the other ½ 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.

    Robyn, I am a very good cook, but this is one meal I never learned how to make until I came across your wonderful recipe. This is my husband’s favorite meal, and he and I prepare it together in minutes. Thank you for making me an even better cook. I am grateful to you for sharing your recipes this way. You have quite a heart.

  3. Finally found a hit with my dad! I try so many different recipes, but he is so picky lol. Will definately be requested to make this again. Thank you for the share.

    instead of using the beef broth with flour solution, substitute with 1 cup of your favorite bbq sauce. I recommend A1 bbq brand.
