  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 to 2 tsp salt
  • olive oil
  • parsley (for garnish, optional)


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp browning seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 small to medium onions (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter (divided)

Mashed Potatoes:

  • 6 small russet potatoes (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 cup warmed whole milk (divided)
  • 1/2 stick of butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1 to 2 tsp of salt (to taste)


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, add the 2 lb of ground beef. Next, add 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs, then 1 large egg (optional). After this, add 1 package of onion soup. Season with 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tbsp garlic powder, 1 to 2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tsp dried oregano. Gently mix to combine the ingredients. With clean hands, scoop out the meat mixture and form the patties. (This will create exactly 8 patties.) In a skillet on medium heat, put some good amount of olive oil. Place the patties on the skillet when you are sure that it is already hot. Sear for about 3-4 minutes. After searing, take the excess oil out of the skillet and return it to the stove. Melt 1 tbsp of butter. Throw 2 sliced small onions into the skillet and saute until slightly translucent. Add another 1 tbsp of butter, and 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour. Cooked the flour for 1-2 minutes. After this, add 2 cups of beef broth and whisk it. Add 1/2 tsp of browning seasoning (optional), and 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce. Mix it. Next, add the mushrooms (optional), 1/2 tsp cajun seasoning, and 1 tsp black pepper. Mix it. Add another 1/2 cup of beef broth to thin out the gravy sauce. After this, place the patties into the gravy sauce. Simmer on low for 5-10 minutes.
