When I don't know what to do with a pound of hamburger and we have a large hungry group this goes over well and feeds everyone. It's good on rice or potatoes, and bread.

Recipe Ingredients for Niv's Hamburger Gravy

1 lb hamburger
1 pepper
1 season salt
37 1/2 grams (about 3 tblsp) cornstarch
4 cups water

Recipe Directions for Niv's Hamburger Gravy

  1. season w/season salt and pepper and brown the hamburger until it is well done (a little burning on one side - brown not black) @ medium high heat in a large skillet

  2. add 1 cup of water while stirring until all the browned meat juices are blended smoothly

  3. then add 2 cups of water leave on medium heat to bring to a simmer

  4. meanwhile in a separate container (I use my glass 2 c measuring c) mix the cornstarch and remaining 1 cup water together until smooth with a fork or wire whisk

  5. once the meat mixture is simmering slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture and stir until the gravy is thickened. If it is too thick add more water. Season with salt and pepper.

  6. optional adds: worcestershire on meat before cooking; beef bullion cubes for a beefier flavor; add sliced mushrooms, chopped onions, and/or chopped garlic before the meat is totally browned.

  7. Using all of the above makes a great gravy, or just one or another to taste.
