This is a dish that my grandmother made pretty often when we all were kids. Later, this was a meal that we would have at family gatherings and it became another one of my favorites.

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
ground chuck
3/4 c
onion, chopped
1
egg
1 tsp
hot pepper sauce
1 tsp
seasoning salt
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 to 1/2 tsp
black pepper
1/3 c
all purpose flour (to dip patties in)
3 Tbsp
vegetable oil or canola oil
1 large
onion
1 c
beef broth
1 c
water
1/4 tsp
seasoning salt
additional black pepper, to taste
1/4 c
all purpose flour, (for the gravy)
1 1/2 to 2 c
sliced mushrooms (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the oil over medium high in a large heavy-bottomed stainless skillet.
2
In a medium sized bowl, combine the ground chuck, chopped onion, egg, hot sauce, seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper. Shape into 4 to 6 equal sized patties.
3
Dip each patty into the flour and cook until browned on both sides; remove and set those aside.
4
Add the sliced onions to the skillet and cook over medium heat until lightly caramelized, stirring regularly.
5
Whisk together the beef broth and water with 1/4 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of seasoned salt and pepper to taste until well combined. Pour into the skillet with the onions and stir constantly, until mixture begins to thicken.
6
Return the hamburger steaks to the skillet, turn to coat, add sliced mushrooms if using, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook, covered, for about 20 minutes longer.
7
Cook's Note: The brown gravy for these patties is pretty good on its own since it's made from the pan drippings. But if you have some Kitchen Bouquet, just a splash of it adds a bit more depth and is delicious. If you find that you need a binder, add in some fresh bread crumbs to the ground beef. If using pre-made hamburger steak patties, omit the onion, egg and hot sauce, and sprinkle both sides of the patties with the seasoned salt, garlic powder and pepper, pressing in the seasoning a bit. Then dip each patty in the flour and proceed with the remaining recipe.
