Hamburger Steak may feel a little old school but I tell you…this hamburger steak is AMAZING! Don’t believe me… try it.
Oh the Onions…
So fun fact, I have not always been the biggest fan of onions. Yep so I never have onions on my burger or hot dog, or in my salads. I really only love onions when they are browned, like in this gravy, or onion soup, or cut up small for a hint of flavor. I know, weird but it is just how I am.
These onions are made even better as they are cooked in the same skillet as the hamburger steaks just adding even more flavor to the gravy. I mean lets be honest, a good hamburger steak is all about the gravy in the end… and this gravy does not disappoint. The key to the onions though is to let them cook down. To get a good brown on them it will take anywhere from 8-10 minutes, so a little patience is involved, but so worth it.
Thick or Thin Patties?
This is always a hard question to answer. Some like their hamburger steaks super thick (like me) and other like them more thin (like my family) and them some others like it just in between. However you like your hamburger steak, make sure and adjust cooking time accordingly.
A thick hamburger steak can take about 8 minutes to cook, while a thinner one could take 5-6 minutes. Just watch them and test for your desired doneness.
Season, Season and Season Some More
It is important to season the hamburger steak very well and then also season the onions and gravy as well. You want to build the flavor, so when it is all done your dish is bursting with flavor in every bite.
I used course ground steak seasoning, salt & pepper for the steaks. Salt for the onions and then Worcestershire sauce in the gravy…again it is all about building layers of flavor. Don’t be afraid to season…you will be so glad you did.
Last but NOT least… THE GRAVY!
Once the hamburger steaks are cooked and the onions are browned it is time to make the amazing, mouth watering, not to be forgotten gravy. Yes it really is that good.
The base of the gravy is the onions with garlic and then some Worcestershire sauce and then beef stock. To thicken it I used cornstarch but you could use flour if you would like…whatever your preference is. You are going to love this!!
