The Best Ever Beef Patties with Mushroom Gravy

This is one of my husband’s favourite meals, he calls this "Pure Comfort Food". It is quick and easy to put together but tastes good enough to serve to special guests.

1 pound lean ground beef
3 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon GF beef bouillon granules
1 tablespoon rice flour
1 egg
2 cloves garlic, processed through garlic press
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mushroom Gravy
8 ounces chopped mushrooms
1 clove garlic, processed through garlic press
1 1/2 cups good quality beef stock
1 tablespoon corn-starch
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1 bay leaf

Mix together the beef, minced onion, beef bouillon granules, rice flour, egg, garlic, oregano and pepper and form into 4 patties about 1" thick.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add patties and cook until you have nice golden brown crust on both sides about 5 minutes per side; remove patties from skillet and set aside.
Prepare gravy by adding the mushrooms and garlic to skillet and cook while scrapping up the browned bits until mushrooms start to soften and sweat, about 5 minutes.
In a large measuring cup, whisk the remaining gravy ingredients together, return the patties to skillet. and pour in the beef stock mixture and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 stirring every so often so it doesn't bubble over. (The sauce may have a frothy texture at first but that will disappear while simmering).
Remove bay leaf and serve.
