Murphy’s Hot Hamburger
It is definitely a splurge, but I had to share it.
This one is for you Lynnie B!
- 1 pound Ground Beef
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
- 1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
- 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
- 5 Tablespoons Flour
- 2 cans (14 Oz. Can) Beef Broth OR 4 Cups Water With Beef Bouillon
- 5 whole Large Potatoes
- 1 Tablespoon Oil, Or As Needed
- Salt And Pepper, to taste
- Slice potatoes into fries. Place on a large baking sheet.
- Pour about 1 tablespoon of oil over the fries and toss with fingers to coat evenly.
- Sprinkle fries with seasoning of choice. I use seasoned salt.
- Place in the oven. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until golden and crispy.
- In a mixing bowl, mix hamburger, garlic, seasoned salt, onion powder and salt and pepper.
- Mix well with hands. Form 4 large patties. I like to make really rustic, greasy diner-style patties with no uniform shape.
- Place in a large preheated skillet over medium heat, preferably one with deep sides. Brown burgers on each side until done.
- Remove burgers from the skillet and place on a plate covered in paper towels. Do not drain the grease.
- Add the flour a tablespoon at a time, stirring with a whisk. You have enough when the grease is all absorbed and the flour mixture gets thick and bubbly.
- Slowly add the broth a little at a time, whisking constantly.
- Bring to a simmer and allow to thicken.
- To serve, place an ample amount of fries on the plate.
- Place a hamburger on top of the fries and cover it all amply in gravy. Enjoy!
