- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup(s) quick oats (oatmeal)
- 1 cup(s) onion, finely chopped, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt, plus more to taste
- 1/8 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper, plus more to taste
- 8 ounce(s) ground sirloin
- Up to 2 tablespoon(s) vegetable oil, divided
- 1 cup(s) button mushrooms, finely chopped
- 3 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
- About 1 cup(s) warm water
- 1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, oats, 2 tablespoons onion, ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper and mix well. Crumble the ground beef over the egg mixture. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 2 patties about 3 inches wide and ¾ inch thick.
- 2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a regular (not nonstick) skillet over medium-high. Add patties and cook about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to a plate.
- 3. In the same skillet, add the remaining onion and mushrooms. Cook until onions are tender and mushrooms have released their water, about 3 minutes. Scrape onto plate with beef patties.
- 4. Reduce heat to medium-low and add 1 to 3 teaspoons oil, enough to cover the bottom of the skillet in a thin pool. Sprinkle the flour over the oil and stir well, forming a thick paste. Continue to cook the paste until it turns a medium brown and all the bits and pieces of the beef are incorporated in the paste. Slowly and carefully add the water, stirring constantly to form the gravy.
- 5. Once the gravy comes to a low boil and begins to thicken, add the beef patties and the vegetables back into the skillet. Turn the heat to low and spoon the gravy over the meat. Simmer 5 to 15 minutes, until ready to serve.
- 6. Add a few more tablespoons water if gravy becomes too thick. Taste and adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve.
