Amazing Hamburger Steak With Gravy

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

Can you get a really steak-like flavor in a hamburger steak? Yes! Seasoned well and carefully cooked you can indeed get that special flavor. Even better, this is an easy dish -- no harder than throwing together a fast hamburger. Note: this can be made lactose-free by substituting beef stock for the milk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the hamburger steak ingredients thoroughly. Let rest 5 minutes.
  2. Form meat into 6-8, oval patties.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high.
  4. Cook hamburger steaks over medium-high heat so that they are well-browned and cooked through. There will probably be 2 or 3 batches depending on skillet size.
  5. Pour off excess grease.
  6. Deglaze pan with the wine -- scraping up the good, brown bits.
  7. Shake milk and cornstarch together well and add to pan.
  8. Turn heat down. Bring gravy to a simmer, stirring constantly.
  9. Serve with rice, mashed potatoes, bread, or anything else that tastes good under gravy.
  10. Note: this can be made lactose-free by substituting beef stock for the milk. If you do not have genuine stock a good soup base will give better results than bullion cubes. Or use the dripping from roasts or pot roasts, thinned down with up to 50% water.

This was good, I really enjoyed deglazing the pan with white wine, the brown bits made the gravy!

This was so good. I nearly had to fight with myself to package up the leftovers to freeze for another meal. I made the gravy with broth instead of milk and could have licked the pan clean. :-)
