Recipe: Hamburger Steak

-The tougher pieces of BEEF, such as the flank ends of the steak and parts of the rump, the round, and the chuck, may be ground fine by being forced through a food chopper. Such meat is very frequently combined with egg and then formed into small cakes or patties to make HAMburger steak. Besides providing a way to utilize pieces of meat that might otherwise be wasted, this dish affords variety to the diet.

(Sufficient to Serve Four)

  • 1 lb. chopped BEEF
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg (if desired)
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Mix the ingredients thoroughly and shape into thin patties. Cook by broiling in a pan placed in the broiler or by pan-broiling in a hot, well-greased frying pan. Spread with butter when ready to serve.
