Hamburger steak -Janet’s Appalachian Kitchen

Hamburger steak was popular in my family as I was growing up. Everyone had their own unique way of making it, but Mama made hers up sort of like a meatloaf and that is the way I like it in this recipe. She cooked hers on top of the stove and served it with mashed potatoes and green beans like I did. This is one meal that really takes me back home again. Mama always set all the food on the table and Daddy would say grace and start passing the dishes around. We would eat and Mama and Daddy would tell us about their day and then we would tell them about ours. Most all our suppers were that way when I was a kid. If we ate at Nannie and Papa’s we would end up settin’ around the table long after supper was ate. No one was ever in a hurry to get up and go do something, especially to wash up the dishes. There really wasn’t that many dishes other that what was on the table. Nannie was always good to wash up as she cooked, using the same dishpan water that she didn’t pour out from breakfast or dinner. When they were only on well water she was not one to waste water, never knowing when that well might dry up. That well did eventually dry up and Papa capped it off and tried to witch another one but didn’t have any luck so they had to have city water installed. Nannie never did like the taste of their water after that and she had no problem letting folks know how much she missed their well water.
