Thanks for all the replies! To clarify, the peas would not be in or a part of the gravy, rather scattered about the plate and atop the meat, onions, mushrooms, vegies and potatoes with the gravy covering. It should all just swim around the plate. Frozen peas I imagine, could work just as well!

A quick search reveals dozens of recipes for hamburger steak. Hard to imagine someone not ever having heard of it. Call it hamburger steak, Salisbury steak, Shepherds Pie, whatever, it's one of my favorites.

INGREDIENTS:
1 can (14.5 ounce) can
Vegetable Broth
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup finely chopped onions
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-3 tablespoons ground black pepper
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablepoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 small can sliced mushrooms

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a large bowl, mix together 1/2 can of Veggie Broth with ground beef, onions, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper. Mix well. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the meat and refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
2. When ready to cook, Shape meat into 4 oval patties.
3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add some olive oil and brown both sides of patties.
Remove Patties from the pan and pour off excess fat.
4. In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining broth until smooth. Mix in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder. Pour into skillet on medium temperature stirring until the gravy thickens.
5. Add Meat back to the skillet.Cover with some gravy, add Mushrooms, Cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sorry Greymo, it's probably my Canadian English. I was trying to say that few local people from Newfoundland (Canadian postal abbreviation is NL) would stay at a Bed and Breakfast. If you're staying at a B&B on The Rock (or anywhere), you're most likely (though not necessarily) a visitor.

It's just my opinion and you're more than welcome to disagree if you have a mind to.

OK, So let me see if I have this right. Few NL'ers would stay at a B&B in NL (Or is that anywhere?).However, if You ARE staying at a B&B "On the Rock"(I assume that's NL), Then you're probably a Non-NL'er, but not necessarily. You COULD be a NL'er!! So in all actuality, we really don't know for sure if NL'ers stay in NL B&B's or anywhere else in the World!-----------My head hurts, Time for a Molson's.----- I wonder if NL'ers drink Molson's??? HUM!

The Shepards Pie comment probably refers to my post, where I said "Kinda like a free form Shepard Pie".....I was saying that I like to mix my Hamburger steak with my mashers, peas, and gravy. Get it? A free form Shepards Pie.

After reading some of your comments to OliverB, I lost some respect for you. I grew up here in the south and I remember my grandmother making hamburger steak twice a month. It only had gravy and onions, but we called it hamburger steak non the less. We were't poor, but we had to watch our money and it a way to feel like you had more than you might have.

For a person with so many posts and such a good rep up here, I am disappointed in how your gave a few elbow reaction comments to a newbie.

If this gets pulled or I get popped off for a few days, that will tell me alot too. I know some of you are up here all the time but there are better ways to introduce someone who is fairly new to this website to how good it can be.

I just had hamburger steak last night, on the grill with cheese. I serve it up with a side of green beans mixed with a bit of cream, butter, starch, salt, pepper for a white sauce. I was half way through when Michael Hoffman stopped by; he was quite flustered that I hadn’t invited him over for another fine meal. It took about 2 Past Blue Ribbons and a shot of Wild Turkey to calm him.

DAMN, I love PBR's. I should have mentioned those on the unmanly drink posting I made
We usually had white rice, green beans, and homemade biscuits when grandma made hamburger steak. It was also a staple on camping trips as she would cook outside the camper as it was so hot inside afterwards when she cooked. She did cook the biscuits in the oven though


I also like Schlitz in the can. I can usualyy find both for about $3 a six pack at my local Lowe's Foods.

A hamburger steak should be just that... ground from chuck and grilled in a big scrubby frying pan over the burners with the sizzlin' meaty juices blending and soaking into the sloppy pile of onions and cooked mushrooms laid atop!

Toss it onto a plate with some fluffy white mashed potatoes and sweet canned peas ladled over large chunks of thick brown gravy and let it all blend into a dark soupy artery clogging mess!

It's the American way.


That doesn't sound very appealing, but I will say that hamburger steaks are just about my husband's favorite meal. We have them quite often.

Hi Bill, no you're not mistaken. Same ingredients served vertically instead of horizontally, tastes good either way. If there's corn on the side of either it gets mixed in as well.

Since this thread is WAY off line - the best hamburger steak I've had was at Pilgreen's (The Steak King)in Atlanta - just the right amount of gravy with fries and onion rings and a salad. Next best was at Mary Ann's - a roadfood diner in Jasper, GA. You had to call ahead to have them make it or you'd sit for a long while as it was prepared. Both of the above were fresh and juicy and there are not too many steaks I'd trtade for either one of these.

Well, now, that just causes me no end of disappointment. I shall, however, do my very best to overcome this feeling of bereftness brought on by your loss of respect.

That sounds really terrible.


Add mashed potatoes, and you have the meal I practically lived while living at the downtown Los Angeles YMCA. Where, as a young starving actor in 1958, I enjoyed that meal for only .99 cents.
The tiny restaurant in that YMCA served that meal every day. And, I loved it. Every day!

My favorite place for Hamburger Steak is the Bar 7 restaurant and Saloon in Wickenburg, AZ. It is actually hand ground chuck steak cooked to your specification on a charcoal broiler, served with smashed potatoes(fake), grilled onions(real), homemade gravy, and the veg du jour. One of my all time favorite comfort meals!

Whatever it is, It's pretty darn god. And it's cooked in a Skillet, not on a grill! Besides, If you cook it on a grill, the gravy tends to drip through, unless it's real thick gravy!

I hate to admit this, but the best chopped steak / hamburger steak I can remember having came from a chain, albeit a small regional one. It's a family steakhouse chain called Hoss's, and almost all of their several dozen locations are in western Pennsylvania. Several years ago I ate at the Hoss's near Oil City PA, and the chopped steak and baked potato that I had was just perfect. I was amazed! Chain restaurant food that can't be improved upon? In THIS universe?? Bizarre but true; I loved every bite of the meal. I was so impressed that I tracked down the manager and let him know how pleased I was. Has anyone else out there had any experience with Hoss's?

Just looked at Hoss's website and discovered a couple of inaccuracies on my part. Hoss's restaurants are located all over PA, not just the western part. Also, my painfully flawed memory said Oil City, but it turns out that there isn't a Hoss's in OC, so.... hell, I don't have a clue where in PA it was. Gettin' old....

Hamburger steak is a staple at plate lunch places, and food wagons/trucks in Hawaii...  A free formed ground beef patty, pan-fried, smothered in brown gravy and served with the always-present two scoops rice and mac salad...  If you want sauted onions and veggie, you have to ask....

In Hawaii, chop steak is an altogether different thing - - it is actual chopped or thin sliced steak, stirfried with peppers, onions, veggies (usually some bean sprouts are added) and the sauce that it is sauted with usually has a shoyu (soy sauce) base.....  Great with the two scoops rice!!!!!
