Chopped hamburger steaks with mushroom gravy


You guys, chopped steaks are easily my favorite ever comfort food on the entire planet. I love going out for dinner and getting a big, juicy, hamburger steak with a side of mashed potatoes.  The ultimate indulgence for sure!  What I love even more is that these are super easy to make at home when I don’t want to go out!

Besides the fact that I crave these steaks on a regular basis, I love making them at home during a busy week because they are so quick and easy. When I’m busy prepping for holiday baking and meals, I don’t want to have to really think hard about our weeknight supper.

Plus, I am always looking for new things to do with ground beef!

Chopped Hamburger Steaks:

Chopped steak and hamburger steak are virtually the same exact things.  They are “steaks” that are made of ground beef!   Some people say “chopped steak” like I do, and some people call them hamburger steaks.

Whatever you decide to call them, they are a basic hamburger patty loaded up with spices and seared for some amazing flavor! Then, of course, they are always served with a rich and thick brown gravy.

You can purchase pre-made chopped steaks at your grocery store.  I prefer to use a lean (10% fat) ground beef and make my own at home.  I find that they come out much more tender and flavorful this way.

How to make chopped steaks with gravy



  • Ingredient wise, I really consider everything here a “pantry staple.” These steaks can be described as kind of a mini meatloaf. But, they can be made right on your stovetop! No heating up the oven! Now, occasionally I don’t have the mushrooms to go along with this recipe. So if you don’t have them, or if you aren’t a fan, you can just simply leave them out!
  • Make sure your pan and oil are nice and hot before adding the meat!  Your hamburger steaks will only take 2-3 minutes to sear per side.
  • One thing you will notice with this recipe is that the chopped steaks get seared first on each side. However, they won’t be completely cooked through. That’s ok! Set them aside on a plate and cover them with foil to keep warm while you whip up the gravy. This gravy only takes five minutes to make, so your beef will stay nice and hot, no problem!
  • After about 3-5 minutes your gravy will start to thicken up, at that point, you add your patties back to the pan. Then, they simmer up to super tender, juicy, flavorful perfection!

  1. 5 stars
    Some minor adjustments to my liking but excellent instructions and recipe. Very quick and easy meal that is so good, people will think you’ve been cooking all day.

  2. This recipe was a big hit in our house!
    I fried a 2 slices of chopped bacon in the pan first, then fried the patties in the bacon grease.
    I just used the bacon / beef fat mix as the oil for the sauteing and for the gravy (minus some grease I poured out).
    Highly recommended.
