Here is a fun recipe idea for you and it's yummy too! Murphy's Hot Hamburger is a yummy variation on hamburger steak and homemade fries. Seriously, this gravy I think is what makes the whole dish---wow, it is yummy.
I don't think in all of my years of cooking that I have ever made a brown gravy. Sure, I know the basics behind gravy making. But it never occurred to me to use beef broth. Why? I don't know. But this was really good!
Apparently there is a famous restaurant in Oklahoma that serves this hamburger. And this hamburger is very well known to anyone who goes to this restaurant. One of my friends even said he has been there when he was a child, but I don't think he knows this burger. He probably got the kids meal or something! :)
Takes a little bit of prep with the homemade fries...and if you look at PW's step by step blog in making Murphy's Hot Hamburger, you will see her contraption that makes fries. It is really cool looking, but I don't think I want anything in my house that makes life easier for making fries. In fact, this dish is probably a once a year dish at our house. But even at that, it was really, really yummy! And I think if you run a half marathon or more, you will not feel too guilty about eating it. (That was for all of my friends who just ran Half Marathon---congrats--that's awesome!) Now go make yourself a Murphy's Hot Hamburger...
