This is a simple but very tasty hamburger gravy that has been passed down from my grandma long time ago. It's especially a great comfort food, served with fresh mashed potatoes. The secret to the flavor of this gravy is the simmering, simmer low heat 1 hour!!

PS. This gravy is NOT greasy at all!!!

Prep:

Cook:

1 Hr 30 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 lb
gr. beef
1 medium
onion, chopped
4 c
water
1 tsp
salt,or to taste
1 1/2 tsp
pepper, i use shallot pepper, or to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Add the ground beef to a 2-quart saucepan, over medium-high heat until beef is thoroughly cooked, breaking the beef into small pieces, stirring frequently. Thoroughly drain the grease from pan. Return to the heat, add the onions and cook 1-2 minutes longer, or until the onions are soften.
2
Add water, enough to cover 2'' over beef mixture. Add the seasonings. Stirring, bring to boil, cover and reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour. 

3
After the hour of cooking, remove lid and thicken the beef gravy; combine in a small jar 1/4-cup flour and 1/4 cup very cold water. Cover and shake the jar to remove lumps. Slowly pour into the hamburger gravy while constantly stirring the gravy. At this time, I taste the gravy and adjust the spices as needed. Cover the gravy, and simmer another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 


* Remember, the amount of flour/water mixture you add, the thicker the gravy will become.

NOTE: This gravy is NOT greasy at all!
