My favorite way to eat ground beef is in a cheeseburger but this combination of brown gravy and onions is delicious. The fact that it’s an easy recipe is a plus! I like onions. A lot of onions! That’s why you can barely see the hamburger steak beneath those beautifully caramelized onions. It’s not often I have all the ingredients for a new recipe but I had parsley and beef broth on hand from other recipes I’d made recently. This recipe reminds me of my Dad. I think he would have loved it!
I love cooking in my cast iron skillet and I used it to prepare this dish. A few tips about the gravy. In total, the gravy should be reduced by half. I put the patties back into the skillet before it was completely reduced so they had ample time to reheat and I wouldn’t lose all my gravy. Taste before you serve to check your spices. You probably won’t need more salt but it’s good to check. I served this dish with garlic toast and mashed potatoes for a good, hearty comfort meal. A nice garden salad would pair perfectly too. This is a great meal for a cool fall night.
