I just love a good hamburger steak. I grew up eating them. I’m sure we all did. And sometimes there is just nothing quite like it. Often times, my mother would wrap a piece of bacon around the edges of each one for even more flavor.
Keep in mind that when you’re making your patties, that they are going to shrink a bit, so make them big. You can also make a little indention in the middle of each of them with your thumb to prevent them from puffing up too much and turning into meatballs rather than hamburger steaks. One time, my wife was making hamburgers for the grill and didn’t quite get them big enough. They grilled up to look just like meatballs so we always kid her about that. But she’d be embarrassed if I told you that, so don’t mention it. 🙂
It’s important to get your pan screaming hot when you put the patties in there. The trick is to get the dark brown color on them like the picture above. That’s where all that delicious flavor comes from. Put them in the skillet and don’t touch them until you flip them. Serious, hands off!
Now that’s some deliciousness right there, folks! We usually served these with mashed potatoes and a vegetable, but they are great served along rice or even french fries – if you want! 🙂 Y’all enjoy!
