The other day my husband said, “I wanna some kind of piece of meat with mashed potatoes for dinner.” This hamburger steak with country gravy is what I ended up making for dinner.

The steak itself is similar to what you would expect for a salisbury steak or a meatloaf. You mix the ground beef with bread crumbs, an egg, and seasonings. Then you fry them up in a frying pan. After that, you place them in the oven to stay warm while you make the gravy.

Now comes the time to make the gravy. You want to use the same skillet that you cooked the patties in. You want get that flvor and bits left in the pan to help flavor the gravy. Since this is a country gravy, you make a roux as the base then add in milk. That gives you that creamy gravy. This gravy with have a slight brown color to it. I added a little browming sauce to mine to get a nice tan color. The browning sauce also adds flavor too.

Now you gotta serve this hamburger steak with country gravy with some mashed potatoes on the side. You want to enjoy that savory gravy along with the steak on top of those soft mashed potatoes.
