I remember my Mom making this only she used chicken fried steak meat. I had thawed hamburger meat so this recipe is a combination of the both of us.
Baby Cakes loved it. I loved it. You’ll love it. Yum-O.
Smothered Hamburger Steak
1 lb. hamburger, seasoned and formed into 3 or 4 oblong patties
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, sliced thin
1 packet brown gravy
1 cup cold water
Coat the bottom of a large skillet with the tablespoon of olive oil. Place the hamburger patties in the skillet and cook until almost done over medium heat. Transfer the patties to a plate and set aside.
Add the onions and sauté until caramelized.
Whisk together the gravy mix into the water and pour into the skillet with the onions.
Turn up the heat to medium high and thicken the gravy, about 5 minutes.
Turn the heat down to low and add the meat back to the skillet. Warm through.
You can serve this with mashed potatoes or buttered rice.
Seriously you guys how have I not made this before? It is wonderful. Baby Cakes ate two patties in one sitting.
