I think half of great food is the quality of ingredients and the other half the cooking. Hamburger steaks may seem rather simple. When you have farm fresh, grass fed beef, the flavor is incredible. I have been a big fan of grass fed beef for a long time.

It’s always best to let your meats reach room temperature before cooking. This also helps protect your cookware. A properly heated skillet and foods that are room temperature help prevent sticking to your cookware.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add just enough cooking oil to coat the bottom of the pan.
Form your ground beef into patties or hamburger steaks. I like to do the indention in the middle of one side of ground beef patties. It helps to ensure it cooks all the way through and helps keep the beef from shrinking up.
Season each side of the hamburger steak patties with kosher salt, cracked black pepper, and chili powder. The chili powder gives great flavor and nice color to the beef when cooked.
