Hamburger Steaks with Mushroom Gravy -easy comfort food that won’t break the bank! Rich mushroom gravy over tender hamburger steaks is a great weeknight dinner.
School has been going for almost 6 weeks here, hard to believe how fast it has gone. We are just getting into the grove of practice for robotics, basketball starts soon, and science Olympiad started this week. My 11 year old wants to be part of pretty much everything that his school offers.
I think it is great for him to try out new things, meet some new kids, and get involved. But man, this is turning into a busy fall! He is loving it though, and he is growing from it, so it is a good thing.
With some kind of practice almost every night of the week I need quick dinners to get us all fed. I have a ton of one pot meals on here already, because we pretty much live off them.
This dish is also made completely in one pan, but you still need a side dish to go with it, so I am not calling it a one pan meal this time. But everything you see here, is all done in a skillet. Hamburger steaks with mushroom gravy is a super easy, comforting, and a great dinner.
My family loves steaks, but they aren’t always the most affordable dinner. So this time we are using ground beef, and making it into hamburger steaks. Mixing in Worcestershire sauce with the ground beef gives it a heartier, beefier flavor. Plus a tiny bit of olive oil helps give it more of a rich flavor, so you aren’t just eating a hamburger patty.
You make a quick mushroom gravy to really add lots of flavor. I love mushrooms, so I always make extra. If you love them too, I suggest using 2 packages of mushrooms. I served the hamburger steaks with mashed potatoes, and it was delicious. A hearty meal, that is ready in minutes, and the whole family will love.
