Another Home Chef success. The homemade mashed potato portion was given to my boys (they loved it) along with a bit of the gravy. The rest was totally low carb and easy to make.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp avocado oil (or other healthy fat)
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1.5 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
- 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, divided
- 1/4 cup sherry
- salt and pepper
In a skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and onions. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sherry, thyme, and slowly add the heavy whipping cream and simmer until thickened (about 25 minutes), stirring often. While the sauce is cooking, add the egg to the ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Form into 3-4 ovular patties. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add oil. Cook patties about 5 minutes on each side or until the beef reaches 150 degrees on the inside. Set meat aside until gravy is to desired thickness.
Pour gravy over the top, and enjoy.
