Crockpot Hamburger Steak

Crockpot Hamburger Steak
8 frozen hamburger patties
1 1/2 onions, cut in half, then sliced
4-5 cloves garlic, sliced
2-3 Tbsp hamburger seasoning
2-3 c beef stock
Salt & pepper to taste
3-4 Tbsp butter*
3-4 Tbsp AP flour*

Place onions in crockpot.  Lay burger patties on top.  Sprinkle sliced garlic & burger seasoning over the meat.  Pour stock over all.  Cook on high 4 hrs or low for 6 hrs.

Pull burger patties & onions out and place on a plate.  Cover to keep warm.  Put broth into measuring cup & let cool enough for fat to be skimmed off the top. **

Melt butter in skillet, add flour and cook on medium heat, stirring until desired color is reached.  Lower heat to a simmer and whisk in broth.  Once thickened, put burgers & onions in gravy and allow to simmer until hot.

*For gravy I used the 1-1-1 ratio. Amounts of butter & flour will vary depending on the amount of broth yielded.

**If you prefer a super smooth gravy, strain broth after skimming the fat.  Don't forget to put the slices of garlic back in the gravy.
