Southern Hamburger Steak with Gravy
8
10 minutes
45 minutes
55 minutes
2 pounds ground beef
1 egg
2 teaspoons dry mustard
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
2 tablespoons ketchup, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups beef broth
Combine the ground beef, egg, dry mustard, 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon ketchup, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper. Mix thoroughly and shape into 8 hamburger patties.
Place olive oil into a large skillet set over medium-high heat. When hot, add the patties and brown for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Put patties on a plate.
Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium and add the sliced onions. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Add the all-purpose flour to the skillet and stir to combine with fat and onions. Let cook for 1 minute.
Add beef broth, 2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and one tablespoon ketchup. Whisk to incorporate all the ingredients and add the hamburger patties back to the skillet.
Spoon some of the gravy over the patties and cook over medium-low heat for 20 more minutes until patties are cooked through and the gravy has thickened.
