Burger Steak

Biting into a rich, thick burger patty is arguably one of the most satisfying classic dining experiences. Perhaps it is what leads us to run again and again to our favorite burger joints. But if you decide to make them, yourself, you’ll have the agency to choose your seasonings, and very importantly, sauces to match your palate. And if flavorful, copious amounts of warm gravy is your preference, you might want to try my Beef Burger Steak recipe.

You might have had a taste of this kind of dish not just in Filipino restaurants, but in dining places of all types of cuisine. This happens to be a well-loved variation of having your burger patty because of how much of a difference gravy makes in coating some well-seasoned, fried beef.

Bite into a gorgeously savory and juicy Beef Burger Steak of your own making! Let’s try making this dish, starting with the patties:

Burger Steak

We will begin by molding and making our beef patties. Put 1 lb. of ground beef, 1 teaspoon of onion powder, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper, and 1 beaten egg together in one container. Then grate 1 Knorr beef cube for an enticingly meaty flavor onto the ingredients, then mix them together well.

Now we are ready to shape these patties by scooping about ¼ cup of the meat mixture, and molding these into a ball shape. Then proceed to flatter this down. After doing these for your patties, start preparing to cook them.

Get your pan, and heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in it. Place your patties on the pan, and let one side of these fry, until they have turned brown. Then flip them and do the same for the other side. Once both sides of your patties are perfectly brown and fried, you can remove them from the pan, and set them aside.

Time to work on the gravy drizzled atop our burger patties:

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Once this is melted properly, you may place 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour in the pan. Then cook this together in medium heat, while continuously stirring for 8 minutes. This should make a beautiful brown roux.

Proceed to pour 1 ¾ cups of water into the mix, and stir these together until they have blended well together. As you are doing this, you should be able to observe your gravy forming by thickening over time.
Then for a great deal of flavor, add your ½ teaspoon of onion powder, ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder, ground black pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of Knorr liquid seasoning into the saucepan. Cook these together for 30 seconds, then place 5 ounces of thinly sliced button mushrooms. Go on to cook this for 1 minute, then set your sauce aside.

Assemble your Beef Burger Steak, and get ready to serve:

Now we should whip out the patties we’ve set aside earlier. Place these over a cup of warm, fresh rice. And pour the gravy sauce we cooked earlier over your patties and rice.

Use 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley as a pleasant garnish atop the patties. Then you can serve this– of course, best when fresh out of the pan– and munch on with delight!

FAQ

Why are turkey burgers considered a healthier alternative to beef burgers?

Turkey is generally lower in saturated fat than beef, especially if you opt for lean ground turkey. It also tends to be lower in calories and cholesterol, making it a healthier protein source. Using lean ground turkey reduces overall fat content, making it a great choice for those seeking a leaner option.

How can I ensure that my turkey burgers stay moist and flavorful?

Given that turkey can be leaner and potentially drier than beef, adding ingredients like finely chopped onions, bell peppers, garlic, and even a touch of olive oil or breadcrumbs to the ground turkey mixture helps retain moisture and enhance flavor. Avoid overcooking the patties to prevent them from drying out.

What are suitable substitutes for traditional burger buns to make these burgers healthier?

Opting for whole-grain burger buns or even lettuce wraps as an alternative to regular white bread buns can add more fiber and nutrients to your meal. Lettuce wraps are a low-carb, low-calorie option that offers a refreshing crunch and can be a healthier alternative to buns.

Can I customize the seasonings and spices in turkey burgers?

Absolutely! Turkey burgers are versatile, allowing for various seasonings and spices. You can experiment with different herbs like basil, thyme, or cilantro, along with spices such as smoked paprika, cumin, or chili powder, to suit your taste preferences. Fresh herbs also add brightness and depth to the flavor profile.

What are some healthy toppings and condiments that complement turkey burgers?

Opt for fresh toppings like lettuce leaves, sliced tomatoes, red onions, and avocado to add nutrients and textures to your burger. Condiments like mustard, low-fat mayo, or homemade yogurt-based sauces offer flavor without excess calories. Consider using Greek yogurt mixed with herbs and lemon for a tangy and creamy topping.
