*aka “green vegetables, what’s that?!”
That’s a recipe from Tasty Kitchen (The Pioneer Woman). Last time I used lean ground beef and ran into problems making the pan gravy. This time I used regular ground beef and that’s the secret. (I also thought that Ree, who lives on a cattle/beef ranch probably wouldn’t use lean beef and that’s why hers looked so much better in the pictures than my last attempt.)
I used my cast iron skillet to fry the patties and that worked much better, too. I always forget how hot the skillet gets and how I need to turn the heat down because once it heats up it’s super hot. I would have liked to have a crustier crust on them, but they still tasted fantastic.
That’s San Fran style sour dough for the bread – it’s dense and thick enough that it doesn’t disintegrate with the gravy. And big russet baker’s potatoes for the fries. I used olive oil, but in looking at Ree’s recipe again she uses canola. I might try that next time.
I couldn’t finish my plate, so Sabrina and Apollo got a little burger, gravy and fries to pimp their kibble. They’re happy, too!
