For Hamburger Steak Patties:
1 large egg
cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. of seasoned salt
3 T. olive oil
1 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, diced
1 tsp. garlic powder
tsp. black pepper
1 cup flour
For the Brown Onion Mushroom Gravy;
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup beef broth
1 cup water
cup flour
salt & pepper to taste
T. Worcestershire sauce
1 T. gravy master ( orange top )
2 cups of fresh sliced mushrooms

In a large bowl combine all the patty ingredients EXCEPT for the flour and olive oil & mix well. Shape into 4-6 hamburger patties. All the same size. In your flour you set aside, dip each patty so both sides are well coated. In a large semi-deep cooking skillet, on medium heat the olive oil and place each of the patties in the pan. Cook until browned on both sides, remove and set aside - reserving all the pan drippings for the gravy. In the pan with the drippings, add sliced onions to the skillet, add a T. of water and cook over medium heat until lightly caramelized, stirring frequently. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the beef broth, water,1/4 cup flour, seasoning salt, pepper, worchestershire and gravy master, until well combined. Poor this mixture into the skillet with the onions and stir constantly, until mixer begins to thicken. Return your cooked hamburger steaks to the skillet, flipping a few times to coat each side with the gravy, you want to absorb the gravy on each side. Add mushrooms, then reduce heat to low simmer. Cook, covered for about 20 minutes longer being sure to flip every 5 minutes to keep them coated well. Serve over buttered mashed potatoes. ENJOY ! Instead of making your own gravey you may buy a few of packet gravey mix.
