  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 large onion finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 7-8 Ritz or saltine crackers crushed fine (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups beef stock
  • Egg noodles for serving optional


  • 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)
  • Any noodle works, not just egg noodles
