  • 6 strips diced raw bacon
  • 2 pounds ground sirloin formed into 8 ounce patties
  • 2 small peeled and thickly sliced yellow onions
  • 4 cups domestic mushrooms cut in half
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 4 shredded Idaho potatoes
  • sea salt and cracked fresh pepper to taste


  • Season the beef patties with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • In a hot large saute pan over medium heat add in bacon and cook until crispy. Once the bacon is cooked reserve to the side and use the same pan to add seasoned meat.
  • Sear the meat for 2 to 3 minutes per side until browned but not cooked through.
  • Remove the chopped steaks from the pan once brown and set aside on a plate. Next, add the onions and mushrooms to the pan, turn the heat down to medium and caramelize, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Once the vegetables are nice and golden brown, deglaze with the beef stock add in the thyme, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Add back in the bacon and chopped steaks and simmer over low heat for 20 to 25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the chopped steak is cooked through.
  • In a separate large saute pan over medium-high heat add in the olive oil and shredded potatoes. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes flipping the potatoes over every 4 to 5 minutes until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the chopped steak with the hash browns, onions, mushrooms, gravy and thyme for garnish.



Chef Notes:
  • Get the perfect sear on those chopped steak patties by making sure the heat is on medium-high heat.
  • Take the time to caramelize the mushrooms and onions, they should be browned and flimsy.
  • Season the gravy well because it will be the braising liquid that will additionally season the burger patties. 
  • Start with dry herbs and finish all your dishes with fresh herbs for maximum flavor.
