1poundlean ground beef,I used an 85/15% blend
¾cupyellow onion,finely chopped
1½cupslow-sodium beef broth
2teaspoonsBetter than Bouillon sauteed onion flavor
1 to 2tablespoonschopped fresh parsley
In a large skillet on medium-high heat, add the lean ground beef, finely chopped yellow onions, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until the ground beef is browned and no pink remains.
Transfer the beef mixture to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain off any excess fat from the skillet.
Turn the heat of the skillet down to medium and melt the unsalted butter. Once melted, add the all-purpose flour and whisk until smooth.
Slowly pour the beef broth into the skillet while whisking to remove any lumps.
Add the Better than Bouillon and Worcestershire sauce to the gravy and whisk to dissolve the bouillon. Allow the gravy to bubble and thicken for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the milk to the thickened gravy and whisk until smooth.
Turn the heat of the skillet down to low, add the reserved ground beef mixture to the gravy and allow the gravy to bubble and thicken for an additional 5 minutes.
Once your hamburger gravy has thickened, you can remove it from the heat and garnish it with a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley.
If you are not using the low-sodium beef broth, I suggest omitting the added salt in this flavorful gravy recipe. You can taste your hamburger gravy at the end of cooking and add the salt if needed.
If the gravy becomes too thick, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of beef broth at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
