What goes into the Burger Steak Recipe?
To make the burger steaks and gravy, you will need:
- Ground beef. You can use lean ground beef, but you may need to add more butter to the pan before adding the flour.
- Breadcrumbs. Plain old breadcrumbs are best here!
- 1 small onion, grated, You want to grate it on a box grater so it's super fine and blends seamlessly into the burger patties.
- 1 large egg, to bind everything together.
- Garlic powder and onion powder.
- Fresh chopped parsley.
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
- 2 tablespoon butter.
- Cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced.
- All-purpose flour
- Beef broth or stock.
- Salt and black pepper, to taste.
How to make Burger Steaks and Mushroom Gravy
Start by making the mixture for the hamburger patties. Add the beef, seasonings, egg and breadcrumbs to a bowl, and combine with your hands until it just comes together. You don't want to over mix, as you run the risk of ending up with tough burger steaks. Just a little gentle massage should do the trick.
Form and season the patties. Divide the burger mixture into 8 equal balls, then gently flatten into uniform patties. These can be round or oblong. Season each side of the patties with salt and pepper.
Brown the patties. Melt the butter in your cast iron skillet or pan, and brown the patties in batches, 3-4 minutes a side. Resist the urge to move them, and be sure to season well for maximum browning.
Make the gravy. Once the burger steaks are browned, set them aside on a plate or platter (it's OK they aren't fully cooked- they will finish in the gravy). Reduce the heat, add the mushrooms to the pan, and cook until they release most of the moisture. Sprinkle in the flour, and stir well. Add the beef broth, and whisk or stir to combine.
Simmer and serve. Once the gravy is mixed, add the burger patties back to the pan, cover, and simmer 15 minutes on low heat until cooked though.

Substitutions and Additions
Here are some swaps and addition you can make to make this recipe your own, and use what you have on hand:
- Try lean ground beef or bison instead. If doing this, you may need to add a bit more butter or some neutral oil when cooking the mushrooms, so there is enough fat in the pan to make the roux when adding the flour.
- Swap the cremini mushrooms for button mushrooms.
- Don't have Worcestershire sauce? Try a bit of soy sauce or coconut aminos!
- No beef broth? Dissolve a beef bouillon cube in water, or use a combo of chicken stock and a teaspoon of browning liquid, such as Kitchen Bouquet.
- No yellow onions on hand? Use a white onion or red onion instead.
What to serve with the hamburger steak recipe
These burger steaks go great served with buttered egg noodles, side of rice (white or whole grain), or mashed potatoes. Serve them right on top with a healthy serving of gravy! A great side is a simple veggie dish, like some green beans, broccoli, or carrots.
Storing leftover and reheating
To store the leftover burger steaks and gravy, allow them to cool to room temperature, then transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat, you may want to add a bit of water or leftover beef broth to thin out the gravy.
