I came across the yummy looking recipe over at High Heels and Grills (hurry, go check it out) and decided that this was SO going on the menu plan asap!
Hubby and the Boy will both love it, right? It's a manly man meal!
Surprisingly, I had everything on hand to make! Yeah!
Here's how I did it:
2 1/2 lbs of ground beef (umm, 90/10 is what I used because it's what I had)
2 egg, beaten
2 shallot, chopped (yes, I had one in the fridge!)
2 clove garlic, chopped
6 tbs parsley chopped
1 tsp ground mustard
3 tbs panko (japanese bread crumbs, YES I had them!)
1/4 c plus a dash flour (I so wanted to try almond meal but will wait til next time)
2 tbs oil
2 tbs butter
salt & pepper to taste
Then you need this to make the gravy (this made tons of gravy which was good with the noodles):
4 tbs butter
3 8 oz package of shrooms, sliced
3/4 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 c flour
4 c (or 1 carton) beef broth
salt & pepper
Whew. That was a lot of typing!
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine everything EXCEPT the oil and butter for the patties. Pat gently to form 10 patties.
Heat the butter and the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the patties for 2 to 3 minutes on each side and then place in a baking dish.
Drain the skillet of any liquid. NOW it's time to make the gravy...yummm...we love gravy! Add butter and reduce the heat to medium. When butter is melted, add the shrooms, onions and thyme. Cook til shrooms are soft.
Sprinkle the shrooms with flour and stir up. Let the shrooms cook for a couple minutes and then add 1/2 cup broth. Swirl around to make sure everything is loose in the pan and coated. Umm...don't do like me and stir. Just let the flour sit on top of the shrooms for a few minutes. I also added a splash of white wine just because I had some open, and hey its a good thing!
Pour in the remaining broth slowly, while stirring. Make sure you are getting the browned bits off the bottom (hubby calls this magic stuff). Let simmer on medium low for about 10 minutes, stir frequently.
Pour the gravy over the steaks in the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake dish in the oven for 30 minutes (give or take 5 minutes) til cooked through.
I wanted to serve mashed potatoes and green beans but took the easy way out and made buttered egg noodles to serve alongside. I also offered up a nice little garden salad which ALL the men snubbed ... who wants salad when you have this other stuff to eat?? :D
Go ahead and put this on the menu plan ASAP ... you won't be sorry!
*NOTES: next time I make this, I will definitely add more salt and pepper ... and maybe chop up the shallots a little more as mine were a little chunky. Also, when I made the patties, I actually just made them into balls first and stuck them in the fridge to get a slight head start on the dinner. Still took me about 45 minutes in the kitchen. I also ate this for the next 3 days for lunch in addition to dinner that night and leftover dinner Tuesday night. Made a lot for Hubby and I (the Boy didn't like and Princess was sick and eating soup)
