I'm linking up to two different Tasty Tuesday. The first is hosted by Mandy's Recipe Box. The second is hosted by 33 Shades of Green. Please see the bottom of this post for their link up buttons.
Since this is my first Tasty Tuesday entry, I'm starting off easy. Because I am all about easy when it comes to cooking. After all, I do cook for 9 people. Each and every day.
This happened to by my husband's birthday dinner back at the end of April. It is one of his favorite meals so I cooked it up for him on his special day. And yes, as much as I cook, I have not mastered making my own gravy. It's on my Kitchen Bucket List though!
Hamburger Steak with Mushroom and Onion Gravy
Ingredients:
  •  1 lb ground beef
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 pkgs gravy mix
Directions:
  1. Add salt and pepper to taste to the ground beef. Divide and shape into patties of preferred size.
  2. Prepare patties as if you were cooking regular hamburgers until the are medium rare. {I grilled mine on an indoor grill, but in the frying pan works too). Set aside.
  3. In large skillet (drain hamburger grease if you prepared the patties in the skillet), melt butter over medium high heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Saute in butter about 10 minutes.
  4. Prepare gravy mixture as according to package. Add to onions and mushrooms. Cook a couple of minutes until gravy is smooth.
  5. Place patties in skillet and continue cooking about 15 minutes over medium high heat, until cooked through. KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR GRAVY!
*This recipe serves about 4-5 people.

Serve with Mashed Potatoes.

Mashed Potatoes
Ingredients:
  • 4 lbs white potatoes, washed and diced
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Directions:
  1. Boil potatoes until soft, usually 20 minutes. Drain.
  2. In pot or large mixing bowl, mix potatoes, sour cream and butter. (Electric mixer or potato masher will work). Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Mix until desired consistency. If too thick, add some milk.
