These fried Hamburger Steaks are cooked on the stove. You can cook them in the oven as well. Serve them with or without gravy. Add some chopped onions to flavor it up.
They are basically just glorified hamburgers. Do you ever wonder where some dishes get their name from? Here is the definition of Hamburger Steak.
If you like onions, may I suggest that you add them to yours. Only if you have picky eater, might you consider to leave them out.
What is the difference between a Hamburger and a Hamburger Steak?
A hamburger is a patty by itself, most often as a sandwich. Usually, a hamburger steak is typically served with sauce/gravy.
What is the difference between a Salisbury Steak and a Hamburger Steak?
A hamburger steak usually has no fillers like breadcrumbs. In most cases, it is just the meat and spices, then served with a gravy or sauce. A Salisbury Steak will have the filler like breadcrumbs and is cooked in gravy. I guess mine would be considered Fried Salisbury Steaks???
In my opinion, I think they differ based on the texture. For instance, Hamburger Steaks have a tougher “outside”. Whereas, Salisbury steaks are tender, inside and out.
My apologies for not taking enough pictures with this recipe. I managed to get a few of the final product, which I guess means my head was back in the game by then.
