Cooking Notes

If using your hands for mixing, wash hands well after handling raw beef.

Country Style Chopped Sirloin with Old Fashion Onion Mushroom Gravy

1 large egg
1/3 cup quick oats (oatmeal)
1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus more to taste
8 ounces ground sirloin (90% lean)
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped button mushrooms
up to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided use
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
about 1 cup warm tap water

1. In a large bowl, combine the egg, oats, 2 tablespoons of onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and mix well. Crumble the ground beef well over the egg mixture. Using your hands mix well.* Form into two patties about 3 inches wide and 3/4-inch thick.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a regular (not nonstick) skillet over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add patties and cook about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to a plate and hold.
3. In the same skillet, add the remaining onion and mushrooms. Cook until tender and mushrooms have released their water, about 3 minutes. Scrap onto plate with beef patties.
4. Reduce heat to medium low and add another 1 to 3 teaspoons of oil, enough to cover the bottom of the skillet in a thin pool. Sprinkle the flour over the oil and stir well, forming a thick paste. Continue to cook the paste until it turns a medium brown and all the bits and pieces of the beef are incorporated in the paste. Slow and carefully add the water stirring, constantly to form the gravy. Once the gravy has come to a low boil and begins to thicken, add the beef patties and the veggies back to the skillet. Lower the heat to simmer (low) and spoon the gravy over the meat. Simmer for 5 to 15 minutes until ready to serve. Add a few more tablespoons of water if gravy becomes too thick. Taste and adjust seasoning with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve.
