For the Steak Patties:

  • Ground beef
  • Olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

For the Gravy:

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet brown gravy mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


Step 1: Prepare the Steak Patties

  1. Mix Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, finely chopped onion, all-purpose flour, garlic powder, breadcrumbs, chopped bacon, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  2. Form Patties: Shape the mixture into patties, about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Cook Patties: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are browned and cooked through. Remove the patties from the skillet and set aside.

Step 2: Prepare the Gravy

  1. Sauté Onions and Mushrooms: In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and sliced mushrooms. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, or until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are tender.
  2. Make the Roux: Sprinkle the all-purpose flour over the onion and mushroom mixture. Stir well to coat the vegetables with the flour, cooking for an additional 2 minutes to remove the raw flour taste.
  3. Add Liquids: Gradually add the water and the packet of brown gravy mix to the skillet, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Season and Thicken: Add the Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper to taste. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the gravy thickens to your desired consistency.

Step 3: Combine and Serve

  1. Add Patties to Gravy: Return the cooked patties to the skillet, nestling them into the mushroom gravy.
  2. Simmer: Reduce the heat to low and simmer for an additional 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  3. Serve: Serve the steak patties with mushroom gravy over mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta, and enjoy!

Cooking Notes

  • Ground Beef: For best results, use ground beef with a good fat content (80/20) to ensure juicy and flavorful patties.
  • Breadcrumbs: You can use panko breadcrumbs for a lighter texture, or regular breadcrumbs for a denser patty.
  • Mushrooms: Use fresh mushrooms for the best flavor, but canned mushrooms can be substituted in a pinch.
