Individual Hamburger Steaks
Very easy and inexpensive and simple to scale the recipe up or down.
Allow ⅓ to ½ pounds of ground beef per person.
Season with salt and pepper, shape into oval patties, about 1½ inches thick. Place on a broiling tray and pre-heat the broiler.
Score the top of the steak with a knife into a decorative pattern (grill marks?)
Broil for about 5 minutes to from a crust on top (keep an eye on them if your oven is really hot) then reduce heat to 425 degrees F and roast (bake) until they reached the desired level of doneness.
It's a good idea to use a thermometer to ensure they are cooked through, the USDA recommends 160 degrees F (71 degrees C).
Serve with any of the following:
Curry butter - cream curry powder with butter
Sour Cream-Horseradish - Mix sour cream with prepared horseradish and add some snipped parsley
Sweet and Sour Bacon Relish - Boil together equal parts of vinegar and brown sugar, add crisped bacon, serve.
