Our family first tried hamburger steak with crunchy onions when we visited Thailand. I needed a frugal steak fix and the description on the menu sounded irresistible. I wasn’t disappointed and knew I had to re-create that amazing, juicy steak recipe at home. That’s what a food blogger thinks about, right? How to re-create their fave recipes into a shareable masterpiece?

Simple Hamburger Steaks


For Steaks:

2 lbs ground beef
3 Tablespoons rolled oats
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

For Onion Rings:

two large yellow onions, peeled and sliced very thin
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 cup water


In large bowl, combine ground beef, rolled oats, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Mix well with hand and form into 1/2 inch oblong steaks. Lightly oil griddle or skillet and brown steaks on both sides until inside is no longer pink. Pour left over drippings from pan over steaks before serving.

Next, prepare the onion rings. First, mix flour with seasoning salt and water. Add more water if needed. The batter should be similar to pancake batter. Then, dip each thin onion ring into the batter and fry on med-high heat in a skillet. Fry until golden brown on both sides and drain. Top each steak with a hearty serving of onion rings. Enjoy!
