For the Hamburger Steaks:

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, grated onion, salt, black pepper, heavy cream, and egg. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  2. Form Patties: Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each portion into a patty.
  3. Cook Patties: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a bit of oil if necessary to prevent sticking. Cook the patties for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are well browned and cooked through. Remove from skillet and set aside.

For the Creamy Dill Sauce:

  1. Sauté Onion and Garlic: In the same skillet, add the olive oil and butter. Once melted, add the finely chopped onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  2. Add Seasoning and Flour: Stir in the salt, black pepper, and flour, cooking for about 1 minute to create a roux.
  3. Add Broth and Cream: Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and heavy cream, bringing the mixture to a simmer. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add Dill: Stir in the chopped fresh dill, reserving a bit for garnish.

Combine and Serve:

  1. Return Patties to Skillet: Place the cooked hamburger steaks back into the skillet, spooning the sauce over them. Allow them to simmer in the sauce for a few minutes to absorb the flavors.
  2. Garnish and Serve: Serve the hamburger steaks topped with additional fresh dill. Enjoy with your favorite sides!

Cooking Notes:

  • Patties: Ensure your patties are evenly sized to cook uniformly.
  • Sauce Consistency: If your sauce is too thick, add a bit more chicken broth. If it’s too thin, let it simmer a bit longer.
  • Dill Flavor: Fresh dill is preferred for a vibrant flavor, but dried dill can be used in a pinch (use 1/3 the amount).


  1. Mushroom Sauce: Swap out the dill sauce for a creamy mushroom sauce. Sauté sliced mushrooms with the onions and garlic, then proceed with the recipe.
  2. Cheesy: Add a handful of shredded cheddar or Parmesan cheese to the sauce for a cheesy twist.
  3. Spicy: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce for a bit of heat.

Keto and Low Carb Versions:

Keto Version:

  • Breadcrumbs Substitute: Use crushed pork rinds or almond flour instead of breadcrumbs.
  • Dairy: Ensure heavy cream is full-fat and avoid low-fat substitutes.

Low Carb Version:

  • Breadcrumbs Substitute: Use a low-carb breadcrumb substitute or omit them entirely.
  • Sauce: The creamy dill sauce is naturally low in carbs, so no changes are needed there.
