"This is a quick and simple way to cream ground beef. It uses milk instead of cream, along with a variety of veggies. Serve over toast or biscuits and try it with some hard boiled eggs." — Grannycancook

This is one of those "keeper" recipes I've made over and over many times. I found l/4 c. flour added after you fry the onions and beef and continue to fry for about 3 min. (stirring constantly) will remove the raw flour taste in the finished product. Also, I heat the milk and add it a little at a time for desired consistentcy. The hot milk helps eliminate the "lumps" in the gravy. We like this over mashed potatoes.I also add some fresh garlic chopped to the onions.....pretty good.
This is a quick easy meal when you are busy. For those of you who found it to be bland try using cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup diluted with a little milk. My family likes it with one of the cream soups. Omit the onion if you wish. It's something like the army s.o.s.
I have trouble getting my college brothers to eat anything these days...they couldn't get enough of this recipe! I didn't have onions, except green ones, so used those; and added corn and golden mushroom soup to the meat mixture.
After reading other reviews, I changed it a bit by adding two beef bullion cubes, garlic salt, and Creole seasoning to the sauce, and about six small sliced boiled potatoes to the hamburger mixture. Came out pretty good!
I'm sorry, but I didn't care much for this dish. It didn't have very much flavor and I could really taste the flour used in it.
This recipe is one of my husband's favorites since we've been married, so I thought I should get around to saying so. You can help boost the flavor a lot by adding Worchesteshire sauce and seasoned salt to the beef/onions while browning, and then adding more seasoned salt to taste once the gravy thickens.
Last time we added chopped green pepper to the beef/onion mix and it added some freshness - you can also use unfrozen peas instead of canned for fresher taste. The gravy does take a while to thicken, but it's worth the wait - just keep stirring over med heat. Thanks for posting this - it's an easy meal that makes great leftovers!
It did not have much taste so I added some pepper and a beef cube.
This is an excellent "comfort food" meal! It's quick and easy for a meal on the run..:) I recommend having it with homemade biscuits! Yum. I didn't have peas, so I used broccoli instead. Still delicious! Great job Granny!
