Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy

Lord, have mercy… there are some foods that are the epitome of Southern comfort food like hamburger steak and gravy! I grew up eating this food along with mashed potatoes or rice, sweet peas, rolls and sweet iced tea. Not the most photogenic dish, but ahhh… the old days! We used to eat it several times a month

The recipe I share with you today is a country burger steak without bells and whistles. Although I love adding new things like peppers and celery and changing things from time to time, sometimes you just want a Southern classic. Pure, simple and easy.

If you want to make a quick and delicious meal for lunch, you should try this amazing burger with onion sauce. My husband loves this dish! Check it out.

“An easy to make classic with tasty burger ‘steaks’ covered with onion sauce. Traditionally served with hot white rice or potatoes, it’s a great way to season a pound of ground beef and you probably have all the ingredients on hand!”
These were very good. I made six small hamburgers with this. I didn’t use sherry, but I thought the flavor was still excellent. He dipped each of my burgers in flour on both sides before putting them in the pan. Finally, after adding the flour and meat broth to the onions, I added 1.5 cups of milk and let it boil. Then I mixed 2T of flour with 1/2 cup of milk and slowly poured it into the broth mixture. Once it thickened, I returned the “steaks” to the sauce mixture. They tasted wonderful like this!

You’ll need it:

1 pound of ground beef.
1 egg.
⅓ cup of bread crumbs.
½ teaspoon black pepper.
1 tsp. salt.
½ tsp. onion powder.
1 clove garlic, minced.
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce.
1 tbsp. oil.
1 ½ cups thinly sliced onion.
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup meat broth.
½ tsp. salt.


Mix ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl and then form thick patties.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and fry the burgers with onions until golden brown. Place them on a plate and keep them warm.
