2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
1 envelope dry Lipton Onion Soup mix
3 Tablespoons A1 Steak Sauce
2 Tablespoons onion flakes
1 cup beef broth
1 sleeve of Ritz or Club crackers, crushed
2 pounds very lean ground beef
pepper to taste
(I did not add additional salt as the crackers and gravy ingredients have quite a bit of salt included. It can be added later if you think it needs more.
1 to 1 1/2 cup additional beef broth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl stir together first five ingredients...this is the gravy mixture. Set aside.
In a large bowl crush the crackers. Add the eggs, ground beef, pepper, and a cup of the gravy mixture from the small bowl. Mix well, and form into patties. Brown patties in a non-stick skillet; this may have to be done in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
Place the browned meat patties in a casserole dish. Pour the gravy mixture into the non-stick skillet and stir in the additional beef broth. When the gravy is smooth and heated through, pour it over the meat patties in the casserole dish.
Bake for 45 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
