Hamburger Steaks

"A DH favorite, served with mashed potatoes. Comfort food! I think I found it in a magazine (Southern Living?) years ago."

    Very good and easy to make. I needed a quick dinner as I was going out and a had ground beef pulled. My pack of ground beef was a pound and a quarter. I got five patties out of that. I followed the rest of the recipe as written other then my tomato sauce was 15 ounces. We all enjoyed these. It was very easy meal to make on a busy weeknight.

    Well you're right ~ this is a definite DH pleaser! Great flavors, and so easy to put together for a busy weeknight. I think the Worcestershire really takes the flavor up a notch! Thanks LaLa Lola ~ another new keeper recipe. Made for PAC FALL 2009!

    These hamburgers were great! Loved the sauce with the onions and green peppers. Reminded me of the meatballs I make for my stuffed green peppers. DH also loved these and will be making them again! Made and reviewed for PAC 2008.


I live in New Orleans where we are completely spoiled by the fabulous food and restaurants and are hard to please when we venture far away from home. We were struck a hard blow by Katrina, but we're coming back slowly but surely. I work fulltime but love to spend weekends cooking for friends and family, especially during the holidays. Favorite cookbooks: anything from Southern Living and Bon Appetit magazines (the recipes don't intimidate me!). I have 3 sons (2 of them steps) and 6 precious step-grandchildren. I say "steps" but I love them like my own. Both DH and I are in education (me clerical, him administration). Before Katrina, we shared our love of food and cooking with 3 other couples in a dinner group called "Whine & Dine." Our quarterly dinner parties all had themes that were reflected in the menu, centerpieces, what we wore, etc. Tremendous fun as we celebrated the cuisines of Canada, Italy, seafood, fine restaurants, Martha Stewart. At a breakfast dinner party, we all wore pj's and slippers! The storm disrupted all of our families and homes and social lives for quite awhile, but I'm hoping we'll re-start our group again soon (now that everyone involved has finished repairing their kitchens!) Update Oct 2009: Whine & Dine reunited after 4 years. The theme was Whine & Dine Goes to Hollywood. Menu: The Magnificant Seven-Layer Dip, Ratatouille, Veal Oscar, When Harry Met Salad, Ol' Yeller Squash, Okrahoma, and Napoleon Dynamite. All of us dressed as movie stars and "Oscars" were awarded. For a night, it was as if Katrina had never happened! Great, great, happy fun! <img src=""> <img src="">
