Smothered Steak with Mushroom Gravy Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans 4.25/5 (16 votes)

A nicely flavored hamburger steak on top of wonderful buttermilk mashed potatoes and smothered in mushroom gravy. My kids' only complaint was they wished I had served peas instead of green beans. Chasing roll-away peas with a fork of mashed potatoes is the highlight of their meal I guess!

VEGETARIAN TIP: Use a veggie or black bean burger in place of the steak.

    Super tasty! I actually didn’t have enough potatoes so added a sweet potato and my mashies were great. Also, did not have any parley so substituted with cilantro and it worked. The dish is a bit rich with all the bacon grease and the fat from the meat but delicious. My 3 year old ate 2 servings! I ended up getting 7 nice sized patties out of the meat mixture and packed some leftovers for lunch. The bacon really made this dish (how could it not!?) so I’m not sure that it would be quite as successful vegetarian.

    This was a hit with the whole family. We roasted our green beans since that is our favorite way to eat them. I’ll be printing and storing this one for later use.
