Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Did you know gravy is a beverage? IT Guy thinks it is. He loves it. So I knew if I made some seasoned hamburger patties, called them "steaks" and served them with some gravy, he would be happy. I was right. Do I know my man, or what? This was deeeee-lish!

Hamburger "Steaks" 
with Brown Gravy and Onions

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 medium onion ~ sliced thin
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon  pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup beef broth
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, pepper, salt, seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Form into 8 balls, and flatten into patties

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions to the skillet and place the patties on top. Cook until browned on each side and onions are tender, about 4 minutes per side. Remove the beef patties to a plate, leaving the onions in the skillet.

Sprinkle flour over the onions and drippings in the skillet. Whisk and scrap the bits off of the bottom of the skillet. Slowly stir in the beef broth. Add the seasoned salt. Simmer and stir over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, until thick.

Place a pattie on a plate and spoon gravy on top.

Okay...let's go.

Combine the meat, breadcrumbs, egg, 
Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings.

Roll into large balls.

Add the oil to the pan, then the sliced onion 
and the meat that's been shaped into patties.

Cook about 4 minutes per side.

Remove the meat from the skillet then add the flour. 
Stir to let the flour cook a little bit.

Then add the beef broth, salt and pepper.

Serve gravy over the patties! Enjoy!!
