Not a bad recipe. Easy to make...easy to spice up. I really like the idea of mixing the flour with the hamburger first. I added the onion soup mix, the worchester (?) sauce, some garlic, and no-salt extra seasonings. The recipe by itself may be a little bland as one of the reviews stated but cooking, I believe, is the art of creation. Out of chaos can come beauty!!!

This recipe is tasteless. Forget the flour and the fat. Brown the meat with one medium chopped onion and then drain the fat off. Stir one can of beef broth into 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup in a large bowl. Add this mixture to the meat and heat thoroughly. Bingo! You've got some great tasting gravy.

I cooked the beef with 3 cloves garlic and about 1 1/2 cup chopped onion. I also added 2 beef boullion cubes with the milk to give this more flavor. We served it over mashed potatoes. A great cook ahead dish to eat on a busy night.

Oh my gawd .... did everyone grow up with this meal in rotation? I like it over mashed potatoes with steamed veggies on the side. If you're looking for robust flavor, this isn't it - just quick comfort food on a cold night.

This was really good - I added some onion soup mix and some Worchestershire sauce for extra zip and it was a hit at our house.

Winner! Everyone loved it. Very tasty over egg noodles. I only used 3 cups of milk and although I overlooked the onion, I did add a package of onion soup mix. Kids and adults couldn't wait to tell me that this was GOOD.

My husband loves this! He asked me to make hamburger gravy for him, and I found this recipe. He was so happy because it tasted just like his mothers. I won some brownie points. :)

This reminds me of my Daddy's homemade hamburger gravy.. we'd have this a lot during the Winter months. The only thing I'd add to this is a couple pinches of ground sage, 1/2 tsp of chicken or beef bouillion and 2 tsp butter or margarine.
