Instructions
Hamburger Steaks
  1. In large bowl, combine ground beef (or ground chuck), egg, Liquid Smoke, black pepper, salt, onion powder, garlic powder (if using) and crushed Ritz crackers.
  2. Use large spoon or hand mix until evenly combined. Set aside.
  3. Prepare burgers in preferred size. I used about 1/3 cup of mixture to make a burger (6 total). Set burgers aside.
  4. Spray large skillet with vegetable oil cooking spray. Or drizzle with 2-1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  5. Warm over low-medium heat until sizzling hot.
  6. Place onion rings in a single layer over bottom of hot skillet. Place patties on top. Sides not touching.
  7. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on each side (well done). Or cook as preferred (pink inside).
  8. Remove hamburgers and onions. Drain on a paper towel.
GRAVY
  1. Turn heat off. Drain grease (save). Leave drippings and brown pieces stuck to bottom of pan.
  2. In bowl or cup, combine 3/4 cup of hot water and 2 tablespoons of flour. Stir until smooth. Pour into skillet with drippings. Add 1-1/2 tablespoons of reserved grease.
  3. Stir constantly over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until gravy is golden brown.
  4. Scoop a sample with spoon. Cool and taste. Season with salt and pepper. If desired, add remaining water to thin gravy.
  5. Gravy should be smooth because flour was dissolved in hot water before pouring into skillet. If desired, whisk gravy to make “smoother.”
  6. Makes about 1 cup of gravy.
