I was craving for the Filipino version of Salisbury steak the other day. However, it will take me close to an hour drive to get to Jollibee, which is the Filipino restaurant that serves this meal. They call it simply as burger steak. Since I got all the ingredients, I made my own Jollibee Inspired Burger Steak with Mushroom Gravy.
The beef patty was a combination of ground pork and ground beef. I think that it was a good blend because both meats complemented each other in terms of taste and texture. I had one of the best tasting burger patties that I have ever had. It was moist and pleasant to eat. The addition of onion powder along with some salt and ground black pepper was a plus, which added more flavor to the patty.
The mushroom gravy, on the other hand, sealed the deal when I topped it over the patties. It was rich, creamy, and very tasty. It enhanced the taste of the burger patty bringing it up a notch. The most enjoyable way to eat this is by having both with newly cooked white rice. It is just like how I enjoy my chicken adobo (with a cup of rice or even more). Delicious!
How to cook your own Jollibee Inspired Burger Steak with Mushroom Gravy:
Making the burger patty:
Let’s kick things off by putting together 1 lb. of ground beef and the same amount of ground beef in a bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of onion powder, ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix these together thoroughly to ensure that we get all of those savory flavors in the meat.
Now scoop up around ½ cup of the mixture. And then we will get the shape right by rolling this into a sphere. On a surface, place the sphere-shaped mix, and then press down gently on this to make a disk-shaped figure for your patty. Keep doing this for the rest of the patty mix until you finish it. Let’s move on to our rich, tasty sauce!
Creating the mushroom gravy:
Grab 4 tablespoons of butter, and start melting this inside your cooking pot. Wait for this to get hot. And then you can incorporate 1 4 oz. can of sliced button mushrooms. We will cook this up for a good 20 seconds, and then we can also place 1 cube of beef bouillon inside. This should give the gravy plenty of flavor to match the meatiness of the burger patty. Press gently against the bouillon until it separates into small pieces. You could also squash it down.
Also add ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder. Now just stir all of your ingredients together until you have blended them all nicely. And then gather all of your mushrooms on one side of the pot, and tilt it so the butter goes to the other side. We will put our 5 tablespoons of all-purpose floor on the side of the butter. Stir this up until the flour fully absorbs your butter.
Keep this cooking as your stir until your flour becomes light brown in color. For this step, you can also stir the mushrooms with the flour as you let it brown. Get your 1 ½ cups of water, and put this inside the pot as well.You can also put more water if you would like to make the mixture less thick, or to lessen the saltiness to your preference. Keep stirring until the flour mixture is diluted. And carry on cooking this with low to medium heat until you get it as thick as you would like. After that, just place the mushroom gravy in a bowl.
Cooking up the patties:
We can get back to our burger patties now. Start by putting ¼ cup of cooking oil in a wide frying pan. Go ahead, and pan-fry each of your patties using medium heat. This will take 4 minutes each. Then when you’re done with this, just arrange your 4 cups of cooked white rice on separate plates with 1 cup in each plate. Top this off with about two to three burger patties. Drizzle your mushroom gravy generously on top, and voila! You have yourself some delightful Burger Steak with Mushroom Gravy, and you’ve saved yourself a trip to Jollibee.

Before you go ahead and start making this yummy dish, let me give you some pointers. Make sure to cook the patties in medium heat, not high. This will keep the meat tender and prevent it from getting burnt quickly. As for the mushroom gravy, the thickness will depend on your preference. The longer you cook it, the thicker it will be. It will also affect the taste by making it stronger. You can always add more water as you are cooking the gravy to balance the flavor and texture.
