Dave often cooks what I am craving. It something that I really appreciate since he does most of our cooking. Sometimes I jump in and help, but for the most part he loves to cook and create, so I sit back and let him.
This week he didn’t ask — it was time for him to make a recipe that has been on his list for a while. We tend to bulk up on meat once a month which keeps our costs low. The trick is when we start getting low on meat and we have to build meals around it. I think he was savi1ng this hamburger just for this dinner!
3 Tbsp Cornstarch + 4 Tbsp Water (cornstarch slurry
Lay down a large sheet of parchment paper or wax paper and drain the black beans in a strainer if using black beans
Chop bread and add it to a large mixing bowl with the 1/4 cup of cream
Add the granulated onion, or onion powder, salt, cayenne, paprika, granulated garlic, oregano, and black pepper to the bread and cream, mix ingredients
Add the 2 lbs of hamburger and drained black beans to the bowl of seasoning, cream and bread and mix the ingredients until well mixed
Form 4 hamburger patties with the hamburger mixture on the parchment paper
Press sauté on the instant pot, when the pot is HOT, add 2 Tbsp of olive oil and place the burger patties into the instant pot
Brown the hamburgers for 3 minutes, carefully flip the burgers, I use a cookie spatula and long kitchen tongs, brown for another 3 minutes and carefully move browned patties to a plate and cancel sauté
Drain the fat from the pot
Small chop one onion, I do this while the hamburger steaks are browning on sauté
Add the chopped onion to the Instant Pot stirring after 30 seconds and 1 minute
Add 1/2 cup of the beef broth and scrape the bottom of the pan clean using a flat wooden spatula
Add the rest of the beef broth, 2 cups, and 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
Add burgers to the gravy
Put the lid on, seal the pressure release valve and pressure cook for 20 mins
Nature pressure release for 10 mins and then open the pressure release valve
Plate the burgers
Cancel pressure cook and press sauté
Mix 3 Tbsp cornstarch and 4 Tbsp water in a bowl or cup
When the broth begins to simmer, stir in the cornstarch slurry and whisk the broth until it has a velvety boil, 5 minutes, cancel sauté
Top each hamburger steak with a large ladle of onion gravy
We made some carrot noodles that went perfect with the hamburger steaks and fell madly in love with the onion gravy
Enjoy your hamburger steaks and onion gravy
If Dave could eat this every day he would, I’m pretty sure the kids would too! It was amazing. 🙂
