Hamburger Steak with Onion Gravy- P1, P2, P3, Hormone Rx

This is comfort food. Quick and easy!



Hamburger Steak and Onion Gravy
4 servings

1lb lean ground beef
2 large onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 stem fresh thyme
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1T arrowroot powder
2 cups beef stock
1 tsp tamari
2T olive oil (for p3 only)

Make 4 equal patties from the ground beef. Season well with salt and pepper. Cook in non stick skillet until almost medium rare- about 5-6 minutes on each side. Remove to plate. Cook onions in the same skillet, using a little water to keep from sticking (use olive oil in p3 only). Season well with salt and pepper. When onions start to get soft, add thyme and garlic. Stir, and cook, until soft. Mix arrowroot powder with a little cold water or stock. Pour beef stock over the onions and bring to simmer. Add arrowroot mixture, stir until thickened. Add tamari and taste. Adjust seasoning. Add beef patties back in- simmer for 5-6 minutes, until beef is done.

    1. Yes, we can. Otherwise, I would have said to omit on P2. :)

    1. It is mashed cauliflower, for p3 or Hormone Rx. Boil cauliflower until super soft, drain, add s&p, olive oil. Mash. Super tasty

  7. Would I be able to use a different thickened? I have psyllium husk, but no arrowroot yet. Do you use arrowroot a lot?
