I finally wrote down this Hamburger Steak with Brown Gravy recipe when I was  in the middle of creating my newest book  Paleo Eats but instead of tucking it away in a book, I felt it needed to be shared with everyone.

Some of my absolute favorite recipes are simple and quick and require nothing but the simplest seasonings like salt, pepper and garlic powder.

This recipe is one from my childhood with a twist.  

After falling in love with Swedish meatballs, I started adding grated onion to this recipe and WOW, it’s amazing how it completely changed the flavor.
