French Onion Hamburger Steaks

Salisbury steaks, hamburger steaks, or po’boy steaks… what do you call them?

In the south, I find that most restaurants call them hamburger steaks, but at home, we would always call them po’boy steaks.

I have actually never seen a Salisbury or hamburger steak on any menu up here in Washington. Is it just a southern thing? I honestly do not know.

Either way, this spin on a classic meal is filling, easy, and scrumptious.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/3 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/4 cups beef broth
  • provolone cheese slices
  • parmesan cheese, shredded

Ingredients

  1. In a large mixing bowl, place ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Using your hands, combine, and form into patties.
  2. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter, and add sliced onions. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes to begin to soften and then remove to a clean plate.
  3. In the same skillet, cook hamburger patties until each side has a good sear, about 3 minutes per side. When the patties have finished cooking, remove them to a plate as well.
  4. Next, add the onions back to the skillet. Once they have reheated, sprinkle on the flour. Stir to combine and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Pour the beef broth over the top of the onions and continue to stir until fully combined.
  5. Once the broth has thickened, add the patties back to the skillet. Lay a slice of provolone on each hamburger patty, then sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top of the provolone.
  6. Place the lid on the skillet and continue to cook for 5-8 minutes.
  7. To serve, scoop some onions and gravy onto the plate, place the hamburger patty on top, then douse the top with some more onions.
