Back in the day, this was one of my dad’s favorite dinners; but, his version called for powdered gravy mix and potato flakes from a box.
The gen’ral wouldn’t have cared for my adding freshly chopped onion (or any of the other seasonings I used) to the mix, either, but it made for a tastefully tempting comfort food dinner with ranch smashed potatoes and broccoli with cheese on the side.
Not at all fancy, but really satisfying.
•1 tbsp butter
•1 lb ground beef
•1 cup diced onion
•2 tbsp flour
•2 cups milk
•1 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce
•2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
•1 tbsp Cajun Power Spicy Garlic Pepper Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce, to taste)
•1/2 tsp dried parsley
•1/2 tsp seasoned salt
•1/2 tsp black pepper
•1/2 tsp Aleppo pepper
•1/2 tsp garlic powder
•1/4 tsp paprika
Melt butter in a large, deep pan over medium high heat, then add the hamburger and onion and cook, breaking up the hamburger, until the beef is evenly browned and the onion tender.
Remove from the heat and add the flour, stirring until the flour is evenly spread among the meat and onion, and any fat in the pan has been absorbed.
Place the pot back over medium heat, then add one cup of milk, The Sherry Peppers, Worcestershire, and Spicy Garlic Pepper sauces, seasoned salt, peppers, and garlic powder.
Stir until the gravy begins to thicken.
Add the remaining cup of milk, bring to a boil, and simmer, stirring, until the gravy is as thick as you like.
Serve over smashed potatoes (best!) or noodles (not bad, but, truly, you need the smashed potatoes for hamburger gravy).
