2 pounds ground beef
1 1/2 cups crumbled saltine crackers (roughly one pack)
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon Italian herbs
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Flour for dredging
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
For the Gravy:
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cans (10.75 oz. each) condensed cream of mushroom soup
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, crumbled saltine crackers, milk, Italian herbs, onion and garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Mold the mixture into thick hamburger steaks and lightly coat them in flour.
In a separate bowl, blend together the cream of mushroom soup and milk, ensuring a smooth consistency. Pour this mixture over the steaks in the baking dish.
Cover the dish with foil and let it bake for about 30 minutes. Ensure that the steaks are cooked through and that the gravy has a nice, bubbly consistency.
Let the dish cool slightly before serving. Feel free to add your choice of garnish.
