How to make Hamburger Steaks
Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card to get the measurements and full instructions!
- 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 together the ground beef with olive oil. Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Them form into patties.
- Heat oil in a large skillet and cook the patties for about 3 minutes per side. They don’t have to be cooked through, just browned on the outside. Remove them from the skillet and keep warm.
- Add the rest of the olive oil to the pan, add the mushrooms and cook them for a few minutes until they start to cook down.
- In a small bowl mix chicken broth and flour together until smooth.
- Pour in the chicken broth mixture, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to the mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Add hamburger steaks back to the pan. Cook for 4 more minutes until the sauce is thickened.
- Once the sauce is thick and the patties are cooked, serve immediately.
My family loves a perfectly grilled ribeye, but they aren’t always the most affordable dinner. But this time we are using ground beef, which gives you a lot of the same flavor but not all the cost. Plus the mushroom gravy on top just makes it incredible!
What Goes with Hamburger Steaks
And if you love mushrooms as much as I do, don’t be afraid to make extra! And check out my tips on How to Cook Mushrooms perfectly every time.
- I like to use baby bella mushrooms for this because they have more flavor. But you can use white button mushrooms, crimini or any type that you like.
- I always get asked why chicken broth when cooking with beef? It is personal preference. You can definitely swap out the chicken broth for beef broth here. For me, it can sometimes be overpowering, and I like the hamburger patty to stand out, so I use the more mild tasting broth. But use whatever you like.
- If you have leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- These are best with lean ground beef, because of the oil called for in the recipe. You are mixing it into the patty. If you use a fattier cut of meat, you may want to reduce the oil called for so it isn’t too greasy.
