Lowly ground beef! Remember when it used to be very inexpensive and was a great food item when the budget was tight? With the alpha gal allergy, I can only eat 96/4, and even then, I try to cook as much fat as possible out of it and drain it away. I’m lucky . . there are people with the allergy who can eat no meat at all and I’m pretty good so long as I avoid excess fat. The main drawback for me is that I cannot eat those good, greasy hamburgers from the old fashioned burger establishments (like Cotton’s in Lake Charles and White Grill in Nevada, MO).
Anyway, hamburger steak with gravy is one of my favorite meals, and as Vince says . . I have lots of favorite meals! 🙂
The other day I was in the store, and even though not looking for meat, I always look at their mark down section and there was a package of 96/4 ground meat so I grabbed it and all the way home, I was thinking . . hamburger steak with gravy.
We had it with rice, okra and Red Hot Cinnamon pickles.
For my gravy, I cook down onions, peppers (bell and jalapeno), then add sliced mushrooms. My gravy is cheater’s gravy – I use 2 packs of brown gravy mix and add just a splash of red wine. Oh, it is so good! I could eat rice and gravy with every meal.
Here’s my recipe for the best ever hamburger steaks with gravy. (And if you double the recipe, you can have enough to freeze at least one, maybe two more meals!)
