This is a recipe my mother used to make and I've always loved it. She was always looking for ways to make things healthier without compromising flavor and this recipe definitely achieves that! There are lots of ways you can adjust this, like adding mushrooms and onions to the pot - yum! It's a pretty simple and quick recipe and thanks to the modern invention of gravy packets it is so much easier than when Grandma made everything from scratch! Anyway, I say 'Steak and Gravy...sort of' because I use ground meat: turkey or ground beef - whatever you like. Just make sure it's a 90% or leaner variety to keep this healthy. You could also use a thin cut of beef that would otherwise be tough if cooked quickly. Just adjust the temp to 325 and the cooking time to an hour and half to increase the tenderness of the meat.
Steak and Gravy
1 lb of ground beef or turkey, patted out into thin patties (if mixing your own, add 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp cavender's no salt seasoning)
2 Brown or Onion Gravy packets (McCormicks is great!)
2 cups of water or beef broth
salt, pepper and garlic powder
onion and mushroom slices (optional)
