1large egglightly beaten
1/4large onionfinely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
7-8Ritz or saltine crackerscrushed fine (about 1/4 cup)
Salt and pepperto taste
2 1/2cupsbeef stock
Egg noodles for servingoptional
Carefully mix the beef with the egg, onion, crackers, sage and 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper using your hands. Divide the meat into 4 equal portions and shape into oval patties.
Boil the egg noodles while cooking the meat, if using.
Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Brown the patties, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
Place another tablespoon of olive oil in the pan with garlic and cook for just a few seconds until the garlic is fragrant. Add Worcestershire sauce and flour and cook for about 30 seconds, then whisk in the beef stock. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and another 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring to get up the bits of meat from the bottom of the pan, until the sauce begins to thicken (about 2-3 minutes depending on the depth of your pan).
Add the patties and juices back into the pan and cook, stirring the sauce occasionally, until the meat is cooked through (2-5 minutes). Taste and season as needed with salt and pepper.
Serve hot over egg noodles.
Any cracker for the Ritz
Ground Turkey for the beef
Chicken stock for the beef stock
If you're out of eggs, use milk instead (or even a bit of tomato sauce)
