I have been making this recipe for years. It's such a quick easy meal with tons of flavor. In times like these when prices at the grocery store just keep soaring you have to try and make things that don't require taking a loan from the bank. I can only imagine how difficult it can be for those families out there that have to feed a family of 4 or more. I must confess for this recipe I do use a package gravy mix, which I buy at Aldi's. (it really is good). The reason for that is to be honest I have not tried making my own gravy with this recipe because lean ground beef doesn't give off alot of juices nor flavor. I will try it some day..*maybe*
2-3 lbs of ground beef
1 large onion (1/2 minced 1/2 thinly sliced)
2 tsp. thyme
1 clove garlic, finely minced
salt and pepper
1 - 2 package brown gravy mix
olive oil for sauteing onions
In a skillet heat oil, add onion cook for a minute or so, add garlic and continue cooking until translucent. Remove from pan and mix into your ground beef. Salt and pepper meat, add thyme and continue to mix. Form oblong patties. In same skillet cook meat on medium. When almost done add 1 cup of water to meat and let come to boil, turn down heat and add the gravy mix, stir. Add the sliced onions and cook for about 10 minutes. Taste, add salt and pepper if needed and some more thyme. Serve with mashed potatoes and a veggie. Enjoy
The roll you see if the picture is a recipe for Texas Roadhouse Rolls. The recipe for those will follow soon.
