Easy Beef Patties with Mushroom Gravy — AKA, mini Salisbury steaks in a rich, savory, gravy loaded with fresh mushrooms — make a classic, comforting dinner!
School is in full swing, busy fall schedules have commenced, and at the end of the day, everyone (including me) is tired and hungry. So I’m all about quick and easy, wholesome and filling, kid-approved dinner recipes that the whole family will enjoy. Lucky for me, Easy Beef Patties with Mushroom Gravy fit all of those requirements quite nicely!
After all, what’s more effortless than a dinner that begins with a pound of ground beef? While I have lots of recipes in my repertoire that start out by browning said ground beef, this is a recipe that requires seasoning it and forming it instead. Either way, super easy!
Mini hamburger steaks are browned on both sides and then the little bits at the bottom of the pan transform into a silky, delicious brown gravy that’s bursting with fresh sliced mushrooms. Served with a crisp side salad or buttery mashed potatoes and tender green beans, this meal is simple and absolutely delicious!
A few years back, this recipe was the perfect quantity to feed my young family of five. But now, with two rapidly growing boys (my 10-year-old officially eats more than I do), I actually have to double the recipe in order to have enough. But it’s no problem to multiply the ingredients, brown the ground beef patties in two batches in a large, deep skillet, and make twice as much gravy. All the better to saturate those mashed potatoes with, my dear! 😉
So are you hungry yet? This recipe is like Salisbury steak, only better, and it’s on regular menu rotation around here. Our whole family gobbles it down, from the picky Pre-K’er to the parents (even if some of them admittedly pick out the mushrooms — more for me!). Because let’s be real here…if I’m going to spend my precious time and energy cooking dinner, it’s always an added bonus when I know that everyone will actually eat it.
Easy Beef Patties with Mushroom Gravy are hearty, they’re satisfying, and they’re easy to whip up. I hope you get to try this one soon!
