  • 1 lb ground beef 80/20 chuck is perfect. I use organic, grass-fed for best taste
  • 1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt see note
  • 1 small sweet onion diced into thin strips
  • 3 Tablespoons butter optional.If you're not using the leftover fat from beef
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups beef broth warm (Use a really savory brand or homemade. I use beef broth paste)
  • parsley garnish


  • Add ground beef, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, & salt into a large bowl.
  • Use your hands to combine the spices with the beef.
  • Shape the mixture into 4-6 large patties. (they will puff a little and shrink so make them large)
  • Heat a large stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Sear the burgers on both sides to create a nice "crust" on the burgers.
  • Remove burgers from skillet and place on a plate. Set aside. (The burgers may be a little undone and that's ok)
  • Leave 3 Tablespoons of fat in the skillet or add 3 tablespoons of butter if you prefer not to use beef fat.
  • Add onions and saute until tender and golden.
  • Sprinkle in flour and cook until flour is golden, stirring constantly.
  • Slowly pour in broth.
  • Stir.
  • Bring to a simmer and then add hamburgers back to the skillet.
  • Simmer until gravy has thickened and hamburgers are cooked through.
  • If needed, season with salt and black pepper. (I never need to)
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
  • Garnish with parsley.



* Be careful when adding salt to the beef since the onion gravy is more than likely on the salty side depending on which brand you use. I only added a little over a 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the beef.
* Feel free to add in grated onions to the beef mixture and well as saute some mushrooms with the onions.
