1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter or oil
2 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1. Patty Preparation: In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Shape the mixture into hamburger patties of your desired size.
2. Sauté and Caramelize:
In a skillet, melt the butter or heat the oil over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown and caramelized. This process brings out their natural sweetness and adds depth to the gravy.
3. Cook the Patties: In the same skillet, increase the heat to medium-high. Carefully add the hamburger patties and cook on each side until they’re nicely browned and cooked to your preferred level of doneness. Remove the patties from the skillet and set them aside.
4. Create the Gravy Base: Reduce the heat to medium and sprinkle the flour over the sautéed onions in the skillet. Stir the flour into the onions to create a roux, which will serve as the base for your gravy.
5. Luscious Gravy: Gradually pour in the beef broth while continuously stirring the roux and onions. Allow the mixture to simmer and thicken into a rich and velvety gravy. The caramelized onion flavors will infuse into the gravy, adding layers of depth.
6. Reunite the Patty and Gravy: Return the cooked hamburger patties to the skillet, nestling them into the onion gravy. Let the patties simmer in the gravy for a few minutes, allowing them to absorb the flavors.
7. Serve with Love: Plate the Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy with a ladle of the flavorful gravy generously poured over the patties. This heartwarming dish pairs well with mashed potatoes, rice, or a medley of steamed vegetables.
