If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you already know that my cooking is simple, affordable and accessible to all. To me cooking is just about that, big flavour in the simplest way possible, nothing complicated, no hard to find ingredients at your regular grocery store, just simple good food.
I also like to take classics, rethink them, borrow flavours from other types of cuisine, and that’s what I’ve done here. Again, nothing complicated, I just took the idea of hamburger steak and added Italian flavour to it.
I love hamburger steak. It was a classic in at our house when I was a kid and I still make it and enjoy it. I thought it would be fun to make it with Italian flavour, a cross between a meatball and a chicken Parmesan.
I serve this with my garlic and mushroom mashed potatoes. You can find the recipe here. For a lighter dinner, serve it with steamed vegetables or a salad. I hope you enjoy this simple revisited hamburger steak.
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 1/4 cup of onions (finely minced)
- 1 tsp of worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 cup of Italian bread crumbs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 cup of marinara sauce (recipe here)
- 1 cup of shredded mozzarella
- In a bowl mix the first 7 ingredients and then form into 4 patties.
- In a large skillet heat up the olive oil.
- On high heat brown the patties on each side (about 4 minutes per side)
- Transfer to an oven safe dish.
- Spoon the marinara sauce on top of the meat patties.
- Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, making sure the internal temperature reaches 160F.
- Remove the foil and add the shredded cheese on the patties and place under broil until melted and bubbly.
