Hamburger and Mushroom Gravy Recipe



My dad talks about making this from time to time. I just had to try it for myself since it always sounds so good. This recipe just reminds me of a total comfort food! You can serve on top of rice or over mashed potatoes with a veggie and some bread on the side. It is a quick meal, that's super filling and tastes great! We will be making this again!

What you need:
1 pound ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1 can of mushrooms or 2 c. fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 c. red wine or beef broth if not using wine
1 c. beef broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. warm water

Directions:
In a large skillet, brown ground beef, garlic, onions, salt and pepper until beef is cooked through. Add mushrooms, saute for a few minutes then add the red wine and beef broth. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water and add to boiling broth and continue to boil for a couple minutes until the sauce starts to thicken into gravy, stirring often. Add more salt or pepper if needed. Enjoy!!
