Hamburger Steak with Onion Gravy

Want to cook a very simple hamburger steak? then I think this recipe is suited for you specially if you love onions. Beef and onions are the dynamic duo often found in beef dishes. So if you don’t like onions, you will miss the more flavorful taste of beef. And about the MSG, I think there is no concrete evidence that it is bad for our health. Maybe if eat too much of it it will be harmful. Take for example the common salt. Too much of it will also cause health problems. So that lesson there is eat moderately.
