  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 3-¼ cups beef broth divided
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning
  • 3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoon cornstarch
  • teaspoon black pepper


  • In a large skillet, heat the butter on high. Melt butter and add in thinly sliced onions. Reduce heat to medium, stir well and add in ¼ cup of the beef broth. Place the lid on and let cook for 5 minutes. Mixing occasionally--making sure that the onions do not burn. We will sweat the onions out. Once the onions are translucent remove them from the pan.
  • While the onions cook prepare the ground beef mixture. Combine the ground beef, steak seasoning, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, dried onion flakes, parsley, bread crumbs and egg together. Mix well, then divide the mixture into 4-6 patties.
  • Add in the grapeseed oil to the pan. Form each pattie into an oval shape, pressing thin, then place in the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat with the lid on. Then flip the patties with a spatula and press the beef down thinning them out. Cook for an additional 3 minutes, then remove from the skillet.
  • Add the onions back in the skillet, and cook for 1 minute. While onions are cooking mix together the 3 cups of beef broth, 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 3 tablespoons cornstarch, and black pepper. Mix the broth into the skillet and put the heat up to high. Cook for 3-4 minutes stirring constantly until broth turns into gravy. Then add in the beef, make sure gravy is on top of the beef and cook for an additional 5 minutes on low (with lid on). Serve immediately and enjoy.
