Have you ever thought about elevating the humble ground beef into something extraordinary and irresistible? Let’s introduce you to our star dish – the Savory Beef Patty with Onion Gravy. It’s not just a meal; it’s a culinary adventure!

This crowd-favorite, the Beef Patty, resonates with the comfort of home-cooked food. The secret charm of this recipe lies in the tender beef patties, beautifully browned, and smothered in a rich onion-infused gravy. It’s the perfect fusion of sophistication and simplicity, taking the ordinary burger meat to a whole new level of deliciousness.

The secret ingredient that makes our patties incredibly tender is grated butter! The minute this luscious ingredient meets heat, it releases steam, keeping the patties juicy, tender, and avoiding any possibility of dryness. The key here is to make sure the frozen butter and ground beef are of the same temperature when combining them.

Eager to embark on this cooking journey? Let’s delve into our straightforward, step-by-step instructions for preparing this tantalizing dish.

Ingredients for the Beef Patties:

  • 1 ½ lbs. of ground beef (preferably 85% lean)
  • 4 Tablespoons of frozen butter
  • ½ cup of finely minced yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons of yellow mustard
  • 3 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

For the Onion Gravy:

  • 2 yellow onions, cut into ¾ inch strips
  • 3 Tablespoons of cold unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup of cold water mixed with 3 tablespoons of corn starch

How to prepare the Beef Patties:

  1. Start by grating the frozen butter. Carefully blend it with the finely chopped onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and ground beef. Be gentle with your mixing to avoid making the patties tough.
  2. Shape this mixture into uniform oval patties and let them chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. After this, season each side with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  3. Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the beef patties and sear each side for about 2-3 minutes. Once they are seared, set them aside.

How to prepare the Onion Gravy:

  1. Reduce the heat to medium-low. In the same pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter, then toss in the onions. Allow them to cook until they soften and start to brown, which usually takes around 15-20 minutes.
  2. Now, pour in the chicken broth, beef broth, onion powder, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir thoroughly, making sure to scrape the tasty bits left from the seared meat at the bottom of the pan.
  3. Dissolve the cornstarch in cold water until completely combined, then gradually whisk this mixture into the simmering gravy. Let it cook while stirring over medium heat until it thickens.

Finishing Steps:

  1. Place the beef patties back into the pan, cover, and let them simmer for about 10 minutes until they are thoroughly cooked (an internal temperature of 160°F is ideal).
  2. To finalize, whisk in the remaining cold butter to lend your gravy a glossy, restaurant-quality finish.
  3. And there you go! You’ve now created the magnificent Savory Beef Patties with Onion Gravy. Serve it over a bed of creamy mashed potatoes. This splendid dish will not just satisfy your stomach but also warm your soul with each forkful. For an extra pop of color and taste, sprinkle some freshly chopped parsley. Pair it with a side of oven-roasted carrots, and you’ve got a dinner that’ll have your family requesting seconds.
