Ground Beef with Mushroom Gravy Recipe

 

This is one of those meals you can have on the table in no time at all. It’s a great way to stretch out a pound of ground beef and make a deliciously satisfying meal at the same time.

Mama made this a lot during my late teen years and early twenties. Probably because she knew how much I liked it. I’m not sure where she got the recipe from but I suspect it came from a magazine or some such place.

It quickly became a favorite of mine and I was always happy to see it on the table.

Mama made this in her large electric frying pan/skillet and always served it with a large pot of white rice. I’m sure it would be just as delicious over egg noodles, but we never had it that way at home.

Sometimes, just to be a bit different, Mama would make very small, bite sized beef patties with the ground beef. I know it was a bit more work than just breaking up the beef in the skillet, but Mama did love to cook so it was just her way of showing more love.

Sometimes she would add some chopped onions to the beef as it was browning, but I didn’t include that in this version. Make it your own, add them if you like.

You can easily double the recipe if you need to make more.

So, if you’re ready for a really quick and easy meal, then let’s head on out to the kitchen, and… Let’s Get Cooking.

Ground Beef with Mushroom Gravy:  You’ll need these ingredients.

 

Ground Beef with Mushroom Gravy, place beef in skillet.
Place your skillet over Medium heat on your stove top. Add the ground beef.

 

Ground Beef with Mushroom Gravy, break it up as it begins to brown.
As the beef begins to brown, use a spatula or spoon to break the beef up into small bits.

Cook the beef until it’s browned, stirring it often to prevent burning.

Drain any excess grease from the pan once the beef is done. I was using a 93% lean ground beef that hardly had any fat at all. Didn’t have to drain a thing, but you don’t want to leave a lot of grease in the pan if using a higher fat content ground beef. It’ll just end up tasting greasy.

    Hi Steve,
    I can’t comment on the recipe except to say that Cream of Mushroom Soup is known as Canned Magic around here.
    You mentioned trouble with the Caps Lock key. That can be disabled. I don’t recall just how, but Google will find it for you.
    If you use a mouse, the touchpad can also be disabled so that your work doesn’t disappear every time you accidentally brush the touchpad.
    Thank you for what you do, and may your vertigo go.

    • Steve Gordon says:

    This recipe brought back a lot of memories. My dad would make this much loved gravy for all of us, 3 brothers and daughter, me.Sometimes he would cut milk in half and add onion, have hamburger buns to make sloppy sandwiches. Yummy! He is gone now and this recipe brought many pleasant memories. He was the cook in family, and made up many recipes, sad to say he didn’t pass on. I Love this website I see recipes that my dad made and I try to make. Just wanted to say Thank you.

    • Steve Gordon says:

Let me know if you try it. The sloppy sandwich sounds like a winner. Thanks for suggesting it. I appreciate your visits and do hope you’ll visit with us often. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    Haven’t made it yet, but it looks and sounds pretty good. Onions should not just be a suggestion – they should be a key component of this recipe. lol Lots of pressed garlic would be a good option, too. 🙂

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Brian, I enjoy onions and garlic as well, but I know some folks don’t care for them. Thanks for taking a look at the recipe. Please let me know how you like it when you decide to give it a try. I appreciate your visits and do hope you’ll visit with us often. Be Blessed!!! -Steve
