INGREDIENTS:
Steaks
2 pounds ground beef (you may substitute turkey if you prefer)
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 eggs
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 slices wheat bread, chopped (or 2 cups croutons, crushed)
1/2 cup heavy cream
Sea salt and pepper

Gravy
2-3 Tbs. olive oil
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 Tbs. butter
1 Tbs. flour
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
Pepper to taste

PREPARATION:
Steaks
1.     In a mixing bowl, combine onion, garlic, parsley, egg and Worcestershire sauce. 

2.     Add chopped bread, pour heavy cream over bread and gentle mix.

3.     Add ground beef; season with salt and pepper and mix to combine all ingredients.

4.     Form into 4-5 patties 1” thick.

Gravy
1.     In a large skillet, saut√© the large, coarsely chopped, onion in olive oil over low heat for 20 minutes.  Onion will soften and caramelize.

3.     Add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and pepper; bring to a low boil, reduce heat and simmer until gravy thickens (approx. 8 minutes).

4.     Add steaks back to the pan, spoon gravy over steaks and simmer for 4-5 minutes.

5.     Plate steaks; spoon gravy over top.

6.     Serve and enjoy!

Variation:  Saut√© 1 lb. fresh mushrooms with the onions when making the gravy.
