Smothered Hamburger Steak

Recipe by mysonshine
READY IN: 25mins


  • ground beef (can use lean ground round)
  • 1
    (8 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1
    cup water (1/2 to 1 cup) or 1 cup milk (1/2 to 1 cup)
  • 1
    (1 ounce) package brown gravy mix (packet size varies)


  • Dice onion and add to the ground beef. (If using onion soup mix, blend well in ground beef.).
  • Mix and form into patties.
  • Fry the patties in skillet on medium heat until cooked to your liking.
  • I usually fry until they are medium-well to well done.
  • While patties are cooking, mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 to 1 cup water or milk, and brown gravy packet/mix in a bowl, stirring well.
  • After patties are browned and ready, add the soup mixture to the skillet. Reduce heat to simmer; spread the mixture over the patties and turn them once or twice as the mixture warms.
  • Stir mixture occasionally.
  • Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until gravy is good and hot.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, your choice of veggies, a good salad, hot rolls or bread, and a cold glass of iced tea.
  • Of course, this recipe can be doubled. Serving size depends on how hungry your family or company is! ;).
  • Kind of a "blue-plate" special!
