Hamburgers in an onion gravy

Hamburgers in an onion gravy…it sounds bizarre. I know…I know.

This recipe occurred during a moment on experimentation and is now a firm favourite on our weekly shop!

What you will need:

  • Low fat burgers – I use Malcolm Allan’s Scottish Slimmer checked burgers (1 syn each)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • Beef oxo cubes


  • Brown the hamburgers on a slow heat
  • Add the finely chopped onions and continue cooking until they soften
  • Fill a jug with boiling water and add as many stocks as you want (I normally go for 4+)
  • Once hamburgers are brown add the stock to the pan, ensuring that the hamburgers are covered completely.
  • Cook on a slow heat for approximately an hour to allow gravy to thicken.

Serve with either slimming world chips and veg or with pasta and veg.
