Tips for Cooking Hamburger Steak
- Don’t overwork the hamburger mixture – This results in moister, tender patties (overworking will cause your patties to be tough). Gently mix just until combined.
- Use 80/20 ground beef chuck – Using 80% lean, 20% fat ground beef is best in this recipe. You’ll have juicy patties, and the fat that is rendered is also needed to flavor the gravy.
Can I Make This Recipe Without Mushrooms and/or Onions?
Yes, you can! Simply omit the mushrooms and/or onions.
