Pat the meat into patties and set aside.  Heat a pan on medium high heat with 2 Tbsp. oil and 2 Tbsp. butter and heat through.  Fry the patties, just until browned on both sides and then remove and set aside.  You are NOT cooking the patties, only browning them.  Continue browning until all patties are done.

On medium heat, using the same pan, scrape up all the bits to loosen; add 2 Tbsp.  butter and saute the onions and mushrooms.  Fry them until somewhat golden.  Sprinkle the 1/2 cup all-purpose flour over the onions and stir to cook for about 2 minutes.  Add the 3 cups of water, 2 tbsp. beef base (picture below), and whisk to combine well.  The broth will start to thicken.  Continue stirring while adding the seasonings to flavor the gravy, adjust the seasonings accordingly.

NOTE:  If you don’t like mushrooms or onions in the gravy, just leave it out.  After the meat have all been browned, remove and add the flour to the pan, scraping up the leftover bits to incorporate with flour.  Add 1 tbsp. oil if no grease was left from frying meat.  Continue with recipe as instructed.
