Smothered Hamburger Steak

1 lb – 1 1/2lbs ground beef (can use lean ground round)
1 (8 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup water (1/2 to 1 cup) or 1 cup milk (1/2 to 1 cup)
1 (1 ounce) package brown gravy mix (packet size varies)

1 Dice onion and add to the ground beef. (If using onion soup mix, blend well in ground beef.).
2 Mix and form into patties.
3 Fry the patties in skillet on medium heat until cooked to your liking.
4 I usually fry until they are medium-well to well done.
5 While patties are cooking, mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 to 1 cup water or milk, and brown gravy packet/mix in a bowl, stirring well.
6 After patties are browned and ready, add the soup mixture to the skillet. Reduce heat to simmer; spread the mixture over the patties and turn them once or twice as the mixture warms.
7 Stir mixture occasionally.
8 Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until gravy is good and hot.
9 Serve with mashed potatoes, your choice of veggies, a good salad, hot rolls or bread, and a cold glass of iced tea.
10 Of course, this recipe can be doubled. Serving size depends on how hungry your family or company is! wink emoticon
11 Kind of a “blue-plate” special!
