How to Make GRAVY BURGERS

Step-by-Step

  • 1(*NOTE: If wild porcini sea salt is not available, increase plain salt by equal amount.)
  • 2In large bowl, combine Montreal steak seasoning, seasoned salt, wild porcini salt, plain salt, garlic powder and ground black pepper; add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise; mix well; add chopped onions; mix.
  • 3(Food service plastic gloves are advised.) Add ground beef; mix thoroughly by hand; form mixture into 8 fairly equal-sized hamburger patties and place on a large plate or platter; set aside, or cover and refrigerate, until ready to dredge in flour.
  • 4To prepare dredge mixture, in a shallow dish, mix together 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • 5Working with one patty at a time, place patty in flour mixture; turn to coat all sides; place patty back on plate; repeat until all patties are coated. Reserve remaining flour for gravy.
  • 6Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • 7To a large skillet, add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil; place over medium-high heat.
  • 8When oil is hot, add patties to skillet.
  • 9Pan-fry patties until browned on both sides (patties do not need to be fully cooked as they will continue cooking in oven,) about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • 10Remove browned patties and place in single layer in a 9"x13" or smaller baking dish.
  • 11Remove skillet from heat; pour grease out of skillet, retaining about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the grease with the brown bits.
  • 12Add 2 1/2 tablespoons of the reserved flour to the grease; using a large, heat-proof spoon or spatula, blend together as much as possible (some of the flour will not be blended and that's okay).
  • 13Return to heat; slowly stir in 1 can of beef broth, smoothing any clumps of flour; bring to simmer, stirring constantly to avoid lumps as gravy thickens.
  • 14Remove from heat; add 2 teaspoons soy sauce and pinch of freshly ground black pepper; stir well; pour gravy over patties in dish.
  • 15Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  • 16Bake at 350ºF for 30 minutes. Serve hot. (Serve with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice or over toasted bread.)
  • 17Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
