Cheese Stuffed Hamburger Steak

Shelia Senghas


While growing up there were basic recipes that were staple meals in our house and many of those recipes stayed with me all through my life. This is one of those recipes. My mother use to make Hamburger Steak with brown gravy and mashed potatoes. I mix it up occasionally in my kitchen and using the same basic recipe I add cheese to the center of the meat, and, sometimes I heat it up by adding chopped jalapeno pepper in the center as well. This is an easy, hearty, dish that is bound to please.
