“An easy hamburger steak recipe, smothered in brown gravy. Good comfort food!”
2-4 hamburger steak patties

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 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)


  1. Dice onion and add to the ground beef. (If using onion soup mix, blend well in ground beef.).
  2. Mix and form into patties.
  3. Fry the patties in skillet on medium heat until cooked to your liking.
  4. I usually fry until they are medium-well to well done.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Stir mixture occasionally.
  8. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until gravy is good and hot.
  9. Serve with mashed potatoes, your choice of veggies, a good salad, hot rolls or bread, and a cold glass of iced tea.
  10. Of course, this recipe can be doubled. Serving size depends on how hungry your family or company is! ;).
  11. Kind of a "blue-plate" special!
