Hamburger Steaks


  • Ground Beef (can use lean, ground chuck, etc) 
  • 1 Cup Beef Broth 
  • All Purpose Flour 
  • Vidalia or other sweet onion, sliced

  • Heat one or two tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet.
  •  Press ground beef into doughnut shaped patties (the hole in the center will allow it to cook more evenly and will fill in as they shrink during cooking). 
  • Dip each patty into flour on both sides and place in hot skillet over medium heat. 
  • Cook for a few minutes on each side, until browned. 
  • Scoot patties to one side and add onions to skillet. 
  • Stir and cook for a few minutes until lightly browned.
  • Pour in 1 cup beef broth and cover.
  • Allow to cook until meat is no longer pink in the center, about ten minutes.
