Murphy’s Hot Hamburger

I just found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen posted by Alisha

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


  1. Slice potatoes into fries. Place on a large baking sheet.
  2. Pour about 1 tablespoon of oil over the fries and toss with fingers to coat evenly.
  3. Sprinkle fries with seasoning of choice. I use seasoned salt.
  4. Place in the oven. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  5. In a mixing bowl, mix hamburger, garlic, seasoned salt, onion powder and salt and pepper.
  6. Mix well with hands. Form 4 large patties. I like to make really rustic, greasy diner-style patties with no uniform shape.
  7. Place in a large preheated skillet over medium heat, preferably one with deep sides. Brown burgers on each side until done.
  8. Remove burgers from the skillet and place on a plate covered in paper towels. Do not drain the grease.
  9. 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.
  10. Slowly add the broth a little at a time, whisking constantly.
  11. Bring to a simmer and allow to thicken.
  12. To serve, place an ample amount of fries on the plate.
  13. Place a hamburger on top of the fries and cover it all amply in gravy. Enjoy!
