Hamburger steaks and lots of gravy? Sign me up!!!
This recipe is a part of a holiday recipe roundup collaboration hosted by Natasha of @asiliglamcooks. For this week we are focusing on cozy fall recipes. I hope you’ll enjoy this submission.
Did someone say “hamburger steaks and lots of gravy?” Well, it was actually me that said that, but sign me up!
One of my favorite home-cooked meals are hamburger steaks with mushroom and onion gravy. Growing up, my dad would cook this for my mom, little sister, and I, and we would CRUSH IT! It was always soooooo good! I’m talking lick-the-plates-clean good! He knew to make a few servings since we’d go back for seconds (and would also need leftovers.) While he never actually taught me his recipe, I recently perfected it in a way I know he’d fall in love with!
From start to finish, this super easy one-pot meal takes about 30 minutes to make. It’s the perfect go-to recipe for a busy weeknight, and there’s lots of flavors. It’s also a great option for those of you looking to do some meal planning earlier in the week.
Ground beef gets seasoned, formed into patties, and seared on each side so it’s partially cooked. In the same pan, mushrooms and onions are sauteed with a little garlic, which will then be turned into a nice and flavorful gravy with some beef stock. Next, the beef patties are added back into that gravy yummy-ness to slowly simmer for a few minutes.
Serve these bad boys up with a scoop of mashed potatoes to soak up all dat sauce. Steamed rice works really well with these hamburger steaks too! Also serve this with a veggie of your choice, cuz balance. I usually go with either sauteed green beans or spinach. Boom….dinner is served babyyy!!

Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom and Onion Gravy
- 1 1/2 lb ground beef
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tbsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/8 tsp thyme, dried or fresh
- 1 large egg, scrambled
- 2 tbsp plain panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 tbsp tablespoon worcestershire sauce
For the gravy
- 4 tbsp tablespoons canola oil
- 8 oz sliced mushroom
- 1 cup onion, sliced
- 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp tablespoon flour
- 1 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
For the hamburger steaks
- In a large bowl, mix all ingredients for the burgers. Evenly divide the burger mixture into 4 portions. Flatten each portion into patties about a quarter inch thick. Once flattened, put a thumbprint in the center of each patty.
- In a large saucepan or skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the canola oil on medium heat. Sear each hamburger patty for 2 minutes per side. Keep seared patties on a separate plate, and set aside. Reserve the pan to cook the gravy. Wipe the pan clean.
For the Mushroom Gravy
- In the same pan that the hamburger steaks were seared, heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil. Add mushrooms and onions and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly browned. Add the butter and minced garlic, stirring for 1 minute.
- Dust the flour over the mushroom mixture, stirring for 1 minute. Pour in beef broth, and bring to a simmer while stirring. Add remaining gravy ingredients, stirring to combine. Turn heat down to its lowest setting.
- Place the partially cooked burgers into the gravy, along with any juices leftover in the plate. Cover the pan and cook for 10 minutes, flipping the burgers in the sauce halfway through cooking. Remove from heat.
- Serve with your favorite veggie and mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
