2 tablespoons butter ***MEAT MIXTURE*** 1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey 4 green onions, minced 1 tablespoon flour 1 package beef bouillon granules 1 dash Worcestershire sauce ***GRAVY*** 2 tablespoons pan juices, plus fat 2 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 cup water 2 packages beef bouillon granules 5 mushrooms, sliced * salt and pepper to taste
* sauteed in butter (or a small can of mushrooms, drained)
Meat: Mix ingredients together. Form into oval patties. Melt butter in a frying pan. Fry patties in the butter until done to your liking. Remove from pan and keep warm, while you make gravy.
Gravy: Add the flour to the drippings in the frying pan.
Cook, stirring, until the drippings turn brown (about the color of peanut butter). Be careful to to let them burn. Add dry beef bouillon granules, add cold water to the hot drippings, and stir until smooth. Add mushrooms, and season to taste. (I added a dash of Maggi and some browning as well as a sprinkle of powdered onion hp). Pour over meat. Mother also would sometimes make a cream gravy instead of a brown gravy for this (just substitute milk for the beef broth).
