Reviews for Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
Easy and good. I didn't change a thing. I would make this again, but I might change a few things, like add mushrooms and maybe a little onion in the patties...It's definatly a start to a great recipe.
I have to admit that I increase my sauce proportions with more beef bouillon and sherry, but otherwise I keep it the same. My daughter never tires of this dish!
I absolutely loved this recipe. I added sautéed mushrooms to my portion.
Good concept but I will definitely not make again without major adjustments. I made it exactly as written and it was TOTALLY tasteless. Neither my husband nor son liked it. Neither did I.
I made this last night. My hubby went back for seconds. I made it with the review suggestions of others who fried the patty first, removed and then fried the onions. I added mushrooms at this point too. Dust with flour and scrape pan, add the onion soup broth, add the 1 1/2 cup of milk, bring to boil and add another 1/2 cup of milk with 2 T flour. It made a lot of very good gravy. I also used the suggestion of making the patty, dip in flour and refrigerate for an hour. I think that did help them to stick together. It was a good meal. I will make it again. Thanks for the helpful suggestions.
I made this just as the recipe states with one minor change I left out the sherry... it was awesome and my children actually ate it all :)
Easy homestyle food - husband said it was a keeper.
Very tasty. The only thing that I left out was the Sherry...because I didn't have any on hand. The gravy was great, especially served over homemade creamed potatoes.
I followed the recipe exactly and it game out great, I loved it and will be using it again. Thanks!
Really simple and tasty recipe. I followed the ingredient list exactly with the exception of using fresh onions and garlic rather than dried. I really think the grated onion made the steaks nice and moist while providing loads of flavor. I think the sherry was a nice touch. YUM!
This was perfect on a cold, dreary, rainy day! Real comfort food! I used dried minced onion instead of onion powder. I also added a few shakes of A1 to the sauce because my husband is an A1 fan. I made the gravy as directed with the addition of some sliced baby portobellos. I will definitely be making this again.
Delicious!! I added fresh mushrooms to the gravy...thanks for the recipe.
The whole family loved it. I omitted the sherry since I didn't have any and it still turned out delicious.
This looks like a very good old fashioned stick to you r ribs recipe that I will be making EXACTLY as printed. It also drives me CRAZY when people review a recipe after they have changed half the ingredients!!!
So easy and very tasty... Though it was a little too salty for my taste. I doubled the gravy recipe and served over egg noodles. Will definitly add this to my menu again.
My family loved this for a quick, easy meal. I doubled the sauce, but kept everything else the same. Thanks!
Delicious! We had this for a Saturday lunch and I served it with some fries. My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy and this was perfect. Didn't add the sherry because we didn't have it on hand, but it was still delicious!
Quick and easy. Needs more spices...whatever works for you.Awesome over mashed potatoes.
This is a great recipie. I served them on a slice of bread with mashed potatoes and peas to make a hot hamburger sandwich. It's a Canadian Thing.
This is a quite good "homey" recipe. The only reason I am not giving five stars is because I reserve that for something that knocks my socks off.
Great recipe. Used 96% lean ground beef and that left too little drippings in the bottom of the pan. Will use something with a little higher fat content next time. No leftovers with a family of 4!
My family loved this,thank-you for sharing Anne.koko
As a really good "comfort meal" you can't beat this. We had a cold dreary, rainy, early fall day and I made this for dinner with some mashed potatoes, green beans, and Eggplant Bruschetta from this site. Everyone practically licked their plates. Even my three year old grandson, who is very skeptical of everything said "I like this meat!" A keeper recipe for sure. I did double the gravy because who doesn't want extra gravy on mashed potatoes!
SO HAPPY I FOUND THIS RECIPE! I'm surprised to learn this is a southern dish as it's a common dish served in local Hawaiian restaurants (served over white short grain rice). This is my favorite dish to order so it makes me even more excited that it came out SO GOOD ("SO ONO" in Hawaii)! It's on par with some of the best I've tasted! I made it for family dinner and everyone loved it. They were surprised I made everything from scratch, even the gravy, and said that it tasted better than the ones they've had in restaurants. I'm giving it 4 stars because I did take the advice of the other reviewers and don't think it would have been as good had I not. I almost doubled the gravy recipe (I ran out of beef broth - 1 can makes approx 1.5 cups) and I think it was just perfect! I also added a touch of milk to thicken, cooked the onions in the drippings separately AFTER the hamburger was moved to a plate and added mushrooms to the onions. Even though I used 3/4 of a medium onion, and 1/2 of a basket of sliced fresh mushrooms - I feel I could have added even more. I added about 1/4 tsp salt since others described it as a little bland. It came out PERFECT and I will definitely add this to my regular rotation. This was easy to make even though the ingredients list looked long and possibly complicated. It really isn't! Don't get intimidated by that - try it! Thank you Mrs. Trader!
Excellent. I tried this recipe and really like it. I forgot to add the Sherry, but it was still great. I served it over hash browns with a side of cooked veggies. Great!
Very delicious and very simple to make as well.
Great recipe. I omitted the onions, but went by the recipe otherwise. The meat was so tender and the gravy was delicious.
This recipe is the BOMB! Tender burgers & this gravy served with some mashed potatoes can't be beat ...
This recipe is the bomb!! Don't change a thing with any of the ingredients...I hate when people rate a recipe after they put their on customized version on it! I served this with mashed potatoes and my husband said, ""This is so delicious"....I replied, "It's the like eating back in the 60's , isn't it?"! He agreed....believe me, this is old time, and we loved it!!! Comfort food at it's best....thanks!!
I was sick with a sinus infection and fever when I attempted to make this.I thought I had everything I needed, but found out too late i didn't. I hate when people review a recipe they didn't follow, but today I am one of them, just bevcause it worked out so well. I didn't try it but dh and my kids loved it! first i used italian bread crumbs all I had on hand. was out of beef broth but had 2 packets of brown gravy which i didn't use the flour called for because gravy thickens. didn't have cooking sherry but used a dry white wine. also since i doubled the recipe after browning the patties in oil I put them in a 9x13 pan finished the gravy in the skillet poured it over the patties and baked 350 for 30 min. made 13 patties after feeding dh , 2 teenage boys, and 2 kids I only have 2 patties and a little gravy left. served over mashed potatoes.
Just made this tonight for an early dinner and it was fantastic. I doubled the gravy because we like a lot of it to go on mashed potatoes, but otherwise I didn't change a thing. It tastes a lot like my homemade baked steak, at a fraction of the price. A new favorite in my recipe box!
This is such an quick, easy and delicious recipe you can make in no time. I substituted gluten free all purpose flour because my husband has celiac's disease. I also added a small can of portobello mushrooms. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and everyone loved it!!
This was to die for! I made a slight alteration that tasted GREAT I used powdered french onion soup and mixed it into the meat! It tasted GREAT a very picky 6yr old ate 3 helpings of it and did not mind the mushrooms and onions.also my wife LOVED IT. The powdered french onion soup in mixed in the meat gave it a great flavor and it wasn't to salty or anything.
Similar to "Salisbury Steak" frozen meal. The sherry & Worcestershire add an important flavor. Doubled the gravy to serve with mashed potatoes.
I made this for dinner when it was the Recipe of the Day - yummy. Easy and did not take long to get it on the table. My husband loved (!!!) it. I doubled the ingredients for the gravy as so many other reviewers have done. I served it with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. Thanks Anne Marie!
Yummy and easy! I used french onion soup instead of broth. Made extra gravy too. Didn't have sherry, but didn't sub anything for it either. My husband and 4 little kids love it too! Thanks
Very very tasty! I didn't have beef broth so I used lipton's beef onion soup mix and water and used crushed ritz crackers rather then bread crumbs. I also omitted the seasoning salt in the gravy and replaced it with worcerstershire sauce. It turned out perfect and tender. Best of all, the kids loved it and they are not fans of onions. ;)
Very good and easy to put together. Will make again.
Very tasty, needed more gravy so followed the advice of another and added milk and flour. Made a very creamy gravy.
This is an excellent recipe as is. It is improved by doubling onions and gravy and using "real" dry sherry. I plan to use this recipe for meatballs in the future and make a quick sauce of chili sauce and cranberry sauce and into the crockpot it goes!!
I've made this recipe several times and it's always a hit. I divide the beef into 4 equal patties and double the gravy to serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes. It's very flavorful and tender, and extremely easy to make.
This was really good. Super easy to put together. I left out the cooking sherry since I never have that. Added a little bit of Worcestshire sauce into the gravy and dredged the patties in flour before I cooked them. Thanks for the recipe.
This was very delicious. I also added cooked mushrooms and and cooked spinach to the meat and served it with green beans instead of corn. It was great and my husband and son loved it.
This was soooo delicious! I made the recipe just as described but doubled the gravy. Served with rice and steamed green beans. My extremely picky teenager licked his plate clean and he NEVER does that! Husband loved it, too! Will definitely add this our list of family favorites. Yum!
My family enjoyed this recipe. I doubled the gravy as previously suggested & I'm so glad that I did. Yummo!!!
What a great excuse for shopping in your pantry! When I stopped eating red meat about 10 years ago, I started looking for ground beef recipes I could substitute with ground turkey and not miss the flavor. This is one of them. Of course I made a few changes to the recipe: substituted 1 lb ground turkey for beef, exchanged 1 can beef broth for chicken broth, added 1 14.5 oz can of tomato sauce, added about a teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning to the sauce, and omitted sherry because I didn't have any. Everything else, I left the same. I loved it! If I were to change anything else, it would be to find a good meatball recipe and use that instead of this one only because I like a stronger seasoned meat. Other than that, this is a keeper!... And I didn't even have to leave my house for the ingredients.
Excellent! Very tasty. I doubled the gravey and onions because well we love onions and my hubby is crazy about gravey!
This came out good. They freeze very nice if you substitute some milk for the egg. I made and froze these 2 monthes ago and we just ate them Thursday. They do have a diner like taste to them.
Very tasty. My family loved it.
This is definitely a keeper! My husband absolutely loved this recipe. The gravy is delicious. I didn't have any cooking Sherry though so I substituted Cream Sherry and it really gave the gravy a nice flavor. I over cooked the hamburger steaks so they were a little dry, but that was MY fault. Next time I make them, which will probably be next week, I will not cook them as long and I think I will not use as lean of a hamburger meat. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
Followed the recipe as it was written except that I left out the sherry. The only thing I would do differently next time is double batch the gravy. Really yummy.
It was very tasty. I did not have any sherry, and it was still good. I served it with buttered brown rice and green beans. I used ground sirloin. It made three large patties or four smaller ones with one pound of sirloin.
I followed exactly but left out the seasoned salt. DO NOT skip the cooking sherry, it only costs a couple dollars and is located by all the vinegars in the grocery store. Oh, and I made 4 patties out of this because I didn't think my pan could fit 8. Will make again and again!
i'm a southern girl living in yankeeland, so i found this recipe in my search for a taste of home and it really hit the nail on the head. just fantastic, the gravy was so scrumptious, i was licking the spoon i used to stir it! I seasoned the patties with grill seasoning before browning them, and omitted the sherry because i didn't have any on hand, and they were still just amazing. I also used a combo of EVOO and butter instead of vegetable oil since the gravy used a roux as the base. this was so wonderful, exactly what we were looking for!
This was easy and delicious. I didn't have any Worcestershire to my dismay, but I deglazed the skillet with a couple splashes of red wine and also added mushrooms. My (former chef) boyfriend, whom I never quite measure up to in the cooking department, said he'd eat it again in a heartbeat.
This is a gret recipe I've made several times. Don't need to change a thing about it. I never have Sherry, so I leave it out or sub something that is recommended in it's place. Serve w/ mashed potaotes and corn (just like picture). Very very good and inexpensive.
The quality of your meat can either make or break this recipe. I've tried it with a high quality ground beef from an Amish meat market and enjoyed it and also tried it with grocery store ground beef and it was just ok. I like to use beef stock as opposed to broth for a deeper flavor and do look for lower sodium. Although I would love to try this with onion, my husband won't eat them so I substitute mushrooms. This makes is a good easy meal and will stay in my recipe box.
That WAS some dang fine gravy! Next time I'll double the recipe and up the size of the meat patties. I might also try using ground sirloin. Thank YOU! My family is very happy!
Comfort food at it's easiest! Everyone in my family enjoyed this... even a picky 7-year old. From start to finish, including peeling & boiling potatoes to mash, this dinner was done in less than 30 minutes. Loved that I didn't have to make a last-minute trip to the store as all the ingredients were already in my pantry. I always wondered how my mom put together a yummy dinner when I couldn't see "anything" to eat in the fridge... this recipe is how. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing!
My husband absolutely loved this. Very much like salisbury steak. Followed recipe except for sherry which I didn't have. Was still delicious. Served with mashed potatoes.
My son is totally in love with this recipe. Asks for it almost every week. That is a huge compliment from a kid who usually complains no matter what I put in front of him. Thanks
Very good. Will make again. Made some changes according to what I had on hand. Didn't use sherry, used crushed cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs. I chopped up the onions instead of slicing and added fresh sliced mushrooms.
My family loved it. I doubled the gravy as suggested. I didn't have onion so I added one packet of lipton onion soup mix to the gravy which gave it more flavor. This was delicious served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.
I did not care for this recipe. Will not be making again.
Very Good!! I used to make something like this but used onion mix package and a package of brown gravy. This is way better and no MSG in any of it which is why I was searching for a different recipe. My family LOVES this and says its the best hamburger steak I have ever made. I didn't change anything only doubled it which I would recommend if you do double on the gravy still only stick to the 1/2 teaspoon of season salt because it will make it a little to salty! Thanks for posting this recipe.
I had forgotten how good this traditional diner dish is. I used a beef bouillon and add'l hot water to make more gravy for the mashed potatoes. Thanks for the memory of eating downtown at the counter of the Cheffnette many years ago.
My kids loved it! The gravy is absolutely delicious! Didn't have sherry so put a bit of sake instead.
These were really tasty and easy to make. I wish I had read the reviews first and had doubled the sauce though, because it definitely needs more sauce!
This is delicious. A great way to dress up ground beef.
this was great! i cooked it for the first time and it was delicious! i did not use the sherry in the recipe, and i did like others said and doubled the gravy recipe, and trust me, you should because it's amazing and personally i don't think it would have been enough gravy for the steaks and the rice had i not doubled the gravy recipe. the steaks were tender juicy and flavorful! the only thing i would recommend is adding a little more seasoning to the gravy mix (to your taste; i'm from the south and we really like our foods seasoned well so i added extra) but this definitely is a keeper!! thanks!
This was superb! I re-arranged the recipe to fit what I had on hand: I used de-frosted frozen hamburger patties (4 is one pound,) and like another user suggested, I used onion soup mix instead of beef broth since it was all I had (1/4 cup of mix with 1 cup water in the microwave for 4 minutes.) Next time I make them, I'll add a little more worcestershire sauce for a little more zip. My husband LOVED them, there were no left-overs. He's asking me to make up 2 batches of these so he can heat them up for lunch and dinner when I'm not home! HIGHLY recommended!
Wow! Thanks Anne! This was fabulous!! The meat was so tasty, and the gravy was the best!! Per other reviewers, I doubled the gravy using 1 can of condensed french onion soup along with one cup of beef broth. And this is a forgiving dish because I had measured the flour incorrectly and had more that was called for, so to thin it down a bit I used a little more beef broth, a little milk, and Kitchen Bouquet to re-darken the color. And I was too impatient to let the meat patties simmer in the gravy for 15 minutes, and this was still an outstanding dish!! Served with mashed potatos and buttered peas. Yum!! Thanks again!!
HATE meatloaf and onions but LOVEed this recipe!!! I used 96 lean ... did not change anything with the meat patties... only thing I changed with the gravy, which was DELISH!! is I added the powder from lipton onion soup and extra beef broth. Sooooooo good!! Thanks!! :)
I followed the directions to a T and it was alright. Nothing to write home about. I didn't have sherry so I used some Port. Otherwise, followed exactly. Served over steamed rice.
LOVE LOVE this recipe!! Made extacly how stated other than the sherry because I didnt have any...My 5 kids and husband LOVED these burgers!! EXCELLENT recipe!! Easy way to fancy up the same old burger!!
I made this recipe because I needed something to make with ground beef. I agree with the person who said "A hamburger with gravy...simple as that." Not too much to it. It was fine and I may make it again but it definitely is not a 5 star recipe!
I didn't have beef broth so I used a packet of Lipton "beefy onion" soup mix and mixed it with about a cup of water. I followed some of the other reviewer's suggestions and dipped the burgers in a flour, salt, and pepper mixture before browning them. I also added a can of mushrooms to my gravy, just because I really like the added flavor. Used leftovers on toast the next day and it was fantastic! Love the recipes that can carry over into the next day if you make too much! Thanks!
This was ok, but not spectacular. It was easy, but a little time consuming for what it was - you mix, form, pat, fry, set aside, add, heat, return, simmer - it's just a lot of steps for an average taste. I might make it again if I was in the mood for something salty or had some beef I needed to use, but it won't be in my rotation of things I cook.
Just made this for dinner because I was looking for a simple meal that I had all the ingredients for. YUM! I tweaked it just a little by cooking the patties first, then the onions after with some fresh mushrooms before making the gravy. I used about 1-1/2 cups of beef broth because I didn't have any sherry and it was fine. Served with simple boiled cabbage. Delicious! This is going into the regular rotation.
This turned out very good. I worked at a diner once, that supposedly served this, and all they did was fry a hamburger with onions. This is so much better! I doubled the recipe because I had 2lbs of hamburger and used lean ground beef. Because I doubled the recipe I had to cook in two batches and used probably double the vegetable oil listed by accident, but it was fine. I shaped the patties with a 3 oz mini burger mold and got 12 patties I made into ovals like the restaurants. I realized I was short one egg and used a spoon of Dukes lite mayo to help it bind, because it had eggs, and it worked fine. I never have cooking sherry, so I used a red wine I have in the house. For the broth I used beef paste and made up some broth to taste, so it wasn't too salty. I served it with regular white rice from my rice cooker. I will definitely make this again.
This was super simple and very good. It's a keeper. I added fresh mushrooms during the initial onion cooking process.
I make my own bread crumbs by toasting bread or buns a little browner than usual, gives it a better taste, and I use wild grind meat such as venison or elk. Lastly, I use beef bouillon granules to make my own beef broth. It is a huge hit in my home. As to all the whiners saying "only rate the recipe" and "don't change anything".....the "spice of life" is the very changes we make instead of being a Stepford Wife..... Thanks to all who offered changes and other ideas, so as to allow those of us who want ideas from all to be able to share in your ideas!!!!
Very good recipe... I didn't have any sherry, so I used pineapple juice instead... I also did not have any onions, so I sprinkled the steaks with french fried onions after they were done cooking... awesome!!! Even my extremely picky daughter ate it! I will be making these again!
My family loved this, I used fresh garlic and heated with onion. Served with mashed potatoes. Yummy!
Fixed this last night and I really enjoyed the flavor of the sauce. i recommend sifting the flour to avoid clumps in the sauce. I forgot to sift and mine was lumpy.
After it was all said and done, it was okay. While the flavor of the meat was fine and so was the gravy, I didn't like putting the sliced onions pan at the same time as the meat(onions got to done well before the meat did & ended up turning black, even on medium heat), and the batch was very oily. The last step of the directions were simple enough, but I had soo much oil in the pan from the meat and the added oil from the ingredients list...that it was way to much. I should have gone with my gut instinct and removed much of the oil 1st, however the directions didn't state to whether to remove or drain excess or and reserve a few tablespoons(which really should be the case). But as it set up, I 2nd guessed myself and followed through with adding the patties back to the gravy and simmering for 15 minutes, that was a huge mistake because there was soo much oil that separated from the gravy and pooled on top of the whole dish, that really was not appealing at the least. Skimming the oil off was a challenge and it resulted with over 1/4 cup of oil excess. Please take the advice to use either very lean lean meat and/or drain most of your oil out of the pan after cooking the meat, so not to have a very oily gravy in the end.
I added half a jar of mushrooms and it was delicious
Very yummy, next time double the gravy.
This was really good. I didn't have everything it called for. Instead of the Sherry- I had Marsala wine and for bread crumbs I used Panko and crushed Baked Lays potato chips. I served it with egg noodles and mashed potato's to give a choice. My family really liked it.
I made this last night, and I am still thinking about the flavor. I made the recipe exactly as written, and it turned out just awesome! It kind of reminds me of Salisbury Steak, but with class. This one is a keeper!
Was a little nervous at the part where you mix in the flour to start the gravy portion. Still learning how to cook. But it ended up absolutely delicious. I will use more onions next time though. Boyfriend & his 11yr old got seconds!
i just wanted to thank everyone for their reviews. The suggestions are wonderful. I have used people's reviews many times to help adapted to my families taste buds, so THANK YOU!
Wow! This is my new favorite recipe!!! I only left the cooking sherry out (and added 1 tbls extra of beef broth to make up for leaving the sherry out), but otherwise I made it to the T and it was sooooo good!!! I cannot wait to make it again!!! Thank you!
I am defintely keeping this recipe on hand. While it wasn't something I would serve at a 5 star restaraunt we really enjoyed it. Very comforting and home cooked feeling to it. Plus it is very easy with me having most of the ingredients always on hand. I will defintely make this again.
This was way beyond my expectations. I added a little red wine before it was done to loosen up the gravy, but it may have been to thick by my using a bit too much flour. I was just looking for something easy and quick to make and aside from my husband's snickers about it just being "meatballs", he was thrilled and has asked I make it again in the future.
Tasty and extremely simple. I do not have seasoned salt, so I used regular. Also added a little oregano & a can of sliced mushrooms to the onion/gravy mixture. My husband loved this! Served with rosemary roasted potatoes & lima beans mixed with corn. Yum.
Yum-o! We didn't have sherry but followed the rest to a "T!" Ate it over mashed potatoes and it was awesome. Will make again!!!
Good! I pur alot of onion into it
Really good. Flavorful gravy, tender patties. I was reluctant to use a lot of onion but next time I will add more. Didn't have sherry.Not a big fan of Worcestershire sauce, but I was really surprised how much it added to the dish. I added to the gravy too. Will definitely make this again and again. Easy peasy! All recipes are a start to your personal preference. I read the reviews for suggestions, tips and to see how others added or subtracted items. That is the reason there are a million cookbooks out there. If you were restricted to just reviewing the recipe as is, you wouldn't have too many reviews. We are all in this food world together and thankfully help each other.
