To prepare this delicious dish, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 lbs 80/20 ground chuck
  • 1/2 cup rusk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tsp dried onion
  • 1 tablespoon “Better Than Beef” broth (or beef broth of your choice)
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch


Now, let’s get started on creating these mouthwatering Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy.

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the 80/20 ground chuck, rusk (breadcrumbs), egg, milk, black pepper, salt, dried onion, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix these ingredients thoroughly until they form evenly-sized patties.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the hamburger patties and brown them for approximately 5 minutes per side. Ensure they are cooked to your desired level of doneness. Once browned, set the patties aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the sliced onions and mushrooms. Sauté them for an additional 3 minutes until they become tender and slightly caramelized.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with a bit of beef broth to create a slurry. This will help thicken your onion gravy.
  5. Pour the remaining 4 cups of beef broth into the skillet with the onions and mushrooms. Then, add the beef broth-cornstarch slurry to the pan. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Return the browned hamburger steaks to the skillet, ensuring they are nestled in the rich onion gravy.
  7. Allow the dish to simmer for 45 to 50 minutes or until the gravy reaches your desired thickness. The slow simmer will infuse all the flavors, making the dish incredibly delicious.
  8. Serve your Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy hot and enjoy this hearty, comforting meal with your favorite side dishes.
