  • 2 lb ground sirloin
  • 1 medium onion small dice
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs (panko or fresh breadcrumbs)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon seasoned salt may adjust to taste
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce or A1 Steak sauce
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • Gravy:
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion thinly sliced into wedges
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 2-3 cups low sodium beef stock additional as needed to thin
  • ½ teaspoon salt adjust to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • cup light cream or half and half
  • chopped Italian parsley for garnishing


  • In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix together ground sirloin, ½ diced onion, breadcrumbs, seasoned salt, pepper, granulated garlic and onion powder, worcestershire sauce and eggs until fully combined. Divide into 4 even oval shaped portions about ¾ inch thick.
  • Heat a few drizzles of oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Brown hamburger steaks for around 3-4 minutes per side. Remove to a platter.
  • To make gravy: To the skillet add butter and sliced onion. Cook the onion over medium high for 2-4 minutes until it's softens and is beginning to brown. Scrape any brown bits from bottom of pan. Add flour, salt and pepper stirring to coat.
  • Cook over medium for 1 minute then gradually whisk in stock. Bring to a gentle boil then whisk in cream.
  • Add hamburger steaks back to the skillet, spooning gravy on top. Immediately lower the heat. Simmer on low uncovered for 5-10 minutes or just until juices run clear.
  • Spoon onion gravy over hamburger steaks and serve garnished with parsley.
