Hamburgers Diane

I know this may not be the most glamourous of meals, but it is truly comfort food! I've been making it so long, I can't even remember where I got the recipe. I do know that it's written down on a collection of cards that I had to do for a home ec. class my senior year of high school. So that means I've been making this one for over 20 years now! (Am I really that old?!? lol!). Anyway, this is definitely a family favorite! It's economical, too. And let me preface this by saying: I do this one from memory and I am quite *free* with the amounts of butter and Worcestershire sauce that I use. Don't be shy about embelishing the measurements! Enjoy!

Hamburgers Diane
2 Tbls. butter
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 small onion, sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Melt butter in large skillet; add Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, onion and mushrooms. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix ground beef, salt and pepper. Shape in to 4 patties, each about 3/4" thick. Push mushroom/onion mixture to the side of skillet. Cook patties in same skillet over medium-high heat, turning once, until desired doneness (about 10 minutes for medium). Serve with mushroom/onion mixture over patties. Serves 4.

This sounds good! I am on a comfort food kick lately (actually I think that is mostly what I cook...comfort or *country*). I made Mrs. H's salisbury steaks last night and we all liked them, but Rick thought they should be cooked in a skillet (instead of in the oven), so I may try this next time. BTW, I thought the S. steaks were good, if you ever want to try them.

The Mister will LOVE this!

I cook the same way..usually without a recipe card...just taste and add and pinch or a sprinkle. :)

Mmm, they look and sound delicious. As dd is allergic to dairy, I'll attempt subbing olive oil for the butter.

Thanks for stopping by to see me. It's nice to meet you and I hope you'll return :-)

Have a great weekend!

Sounds great! The ingredients remind me of a salisbury steak recipe we make. Is that sort of the flavor profile that it has?
