Hamburger Mix & Gravy
By Chef Korie Nazara
Makes 20 Quarter-Pound Burgers
5 lbs grass-fed ground beef, preferably 80% lean
1 sweet onion diced
1 cup whole oats
¼ cup garlic salt
Kneed all ingredients together and make into patties. Great for cooking on the grill or using for hamburger steak or loco moco.
Gravy: At home to make gravy for burgers, I cook burgers in a skillet and save the drippings. I add a little water to the skillet and make a roux out of equal amounts flour and butter. Slowly add some of the warm drippings to the roux, so it doesn’t clump. When well combined, pour the roux into pan with drippings, stir and heat until thickened.
