Glorified Gravy

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by rodeoblonde

I threw this together using what I had on hand. The "gravy" was delicious eaten by itself, and could be used as a "sloppy joe" type sandwich, or over pasta, rice, or my favorite, mashed potatoes. My toddler practically licked the bowl clean, as did my BF. On a side note, these measurements and directions are not exact. Feel free to substitute and adjust away! I also guessed on the time. It took me a little longer to make, only because I kept thinking of different things to add. So time is approximate!

A good hamburger gravy. I plan on having this some night when I don't feel like cooking. It will go good over mashed potatoes with a veggie side. I will have to pull the mushrooms out for me, but everyone else will enjoy them. Thnx for sharing your recipe, rodeoblonde. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground chuck. Add the onion, mushroom, garlic salt, cumin and thyme. Continue to cook until onions just start to look clear.
  2. Drain SOME of the grease (for a healthier version, drain it all. For the tastier version, leave a little).
  3. Whisk together the 2 cups of cold water with the 2 gravy packets until smooth.
  4. Add the water and gravy to the meat mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer until the gravy thickens to desired consistency, stirring frequently.
  5. Season with the season salt to taste.
  6. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta. Top with cheese, if desired.
  7. TIP: Add mixed veggies for a more complete meal!
