These simple steak patties from Ginette Mathiot’s “I Know How to Cook,” may resemble an all-American burger,but their sublime taste makes clear their French lineage.
Start to finish: 30 minutes
14 ounces sirloin steak,chopped
3 1/2 ounces button mushrooms,chopped
3 garlic cloves,crushed
Salt and ground black pepper,to taste
All-purpose flour,for dredging
3 tablespoons olive oil,divided
In a large bowl,mix together the chopped beef,mushrooms and garlic. Add the egg,mix well,then season with salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into 6 patties,then dredge each through flour to lightly coat.
In a large skillet over medium-high,heat half of the oil. Add 3 of the patties and brown for 2 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining oil and patties.
