How to make Hamburger Steaks!

For this recipe I went with 85% lean ground Certified Angus Beef®. This gave me a little more fat to help keep the steaks juicy, as well as lean enough for the fat content to not be too high for our diet. I added some worcestershire sauce to deepen the flavor of the beef as well as salt and pepper. That is all this burger needs for a tasty burger on it’s own!

Once the burgers have cooked a few minutes on each side, you remove them and cook the mushrooms and onions. This is where the over the top goodness comes in!

Once the vegetables are sauteed, you will create your sauce by thickening with a little flour and adding some red wine and beef broth. Then you will add the burgers back to the pan and bury them with the mushroom and onion mixture.

I love to use my Lodge Cast Iron Skillet for this recipe! I I highly recommend it and love how it gives a nice crispy brown exterior to the hamburger steaks. It holds heat and disperses it evenly!
