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.
Weeknights are busy all year round. Doesn’t matter if it is the middle of summer or the middle of December, life is crazy. So easy dinner ideas are necessary every night of the year. This hamburger steak recipe is one of my favorite go-tos.
A hamburger steak with gravy is a classic comfort food that I am sure we all grew up with. This hamburger steak recipe is made with a mushroom gravy, and you don’t have to feel guilty eating it. Plus it gets on the table in minutes.
I have a ton of one pot meals on here already, because we pretty much live off them. Hamburger steak with mushroom gravy is another staple, that everyone can make. So easy, even the kids could help or do it on their own.
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. When I was a kid my mom always made salisbury steak or meatloaf, neither of which I was a huge fan of. Now this Meatloaf Recipe is a different store. And the gravy makes these steaks so much better than I remember as a kid!
How to make Hamburger Steaks
- Start with ground beef. This uses a lean ground beef to make it healthier, but if you aren’t counting calories or don’t care, you can use an 85% lean cut.
- Mix in seasoning. Hamburger steaks don’t have much for seasoning. I add a little oil to this to get just a little fat in there, but really just some salt and pepper. You want it to be reminiscent of a steak after all, so you don’t need much.
- Shape into patties. It is very much like making a hamburger, so just shape and then you cook in a skillet. Can’t get much easier.
My family a perfectly grilled ribeye, but they aren’t always the most affordable dinner. This Pan Seared Steak is another delicious idea. But 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 sauteed mushrooms, so I always make extra. If you love them too, I suggest using 2 packages of mushrooms. I served the hamburger steak and gravy with mashed potatoes, and it was delicious. A hearty meal, that is ready in minutes, and the whole family will love.
