  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoon butter, divided


  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • copped parsley, for garnish


  • In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, salt, bread crumbs and egg. Mix only until combined, don’t overmix. Shape into four equal patties.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the ground beef patties and cook about 4 minutes on each side until browned (they will cook further in the sauce later). Remove from skillet and place on a plate.
  • Using the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add in the sliced onions and mushrooms and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until softened and browned.
  • Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms, onions and garlic and stir while cooking for one minute.
  • Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes stirring frequently.
  • Add the hamburger steaks back into the skillet (along with any juices on the plate) and cover them with the gravy.
  • Cover with a lid and reduce heat to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid and cook another 10 to 15 minutes letting the sauce thicken.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley.


Note: You can put this recipe together up to eight hours in advance, so it’s a great option when you know you’ll have a busy evening.
Note: I make the patties on the big side as they will shrink down while cooking.
Note: Garnish the finished dish with chopped parsley, if you like.
