Hamburger Steak Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Gravy Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Other Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked wild rice
  • 2 cups cooked macaroni
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups steamed broccoli florets
  • Sweet potato cornbread (you can find a recipe online or use a mix)


  1. In a bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, chopped onion, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well and shape the mixture into patties.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and cook the hamburger patties until they are browned and cooked through. Remove the patties from the skillet and set them aside.
  3. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Cook for a minute or two until the flour is lightly browned.
  4. Gradually whisk in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking and stirring until the gravy thickens.
  5. Return the cooked hamburger patties to the skillet with the gravy. Spoon some of the gravy over the patties. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  6. Prepare the wild rice according to the package instructions.
  7. In a separate pot, cook the macaroni until al dente. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until it melts and coats the macaroni.
  8. Steam the broccoli florets until tender-crisp.
  9. Prepare the sweet potato cornbread according to your chosen recipe or mix.
  10. To serve, place a scoop of wild rice on a plate, top it with a hamburger patty and some gravy. Serve with a portion of macaroni and cheese, steamed broccoli, and a slice of sweet potato cornbread.
