Hamburger Steak on Garlic Cheese Toast

Go and get-

1 ¼ pound ground sirloin
¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoons scallions, finely chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 tablespoon oil

For the Sauce-

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups onions, sliced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 cups beef broth
¼ cup dry red wine
1 tablespoon salt
Cheese Toast (recipe follows)
Minced fresh parsley
Shredded parmesan cheese

For the toast-
4 slices French baguette, cut diagonally (1/2-inch thick)
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
Pinch of Cajun seasoning
6 ounces gruyere cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, shredded

Let’s get it going folks-
Combine your ground sirloin, ¼ cup chopped parsley, scallions, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Divide your meat evenly into four portions and shape each into about 1 inch thick patties. Place about 2 tablespoons flour in a shallow dish; dredge each patty in flour. Reserve you about 1 teaspoon of flour.
Get you a frying skillet and heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add your patties and fry for about 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. You are going to cook them some more so take them up as soon as the outsides are brown.
Time to make the gravy and the sisters do love them some good gravy! Add onions, mushrooms and sugar to the pan you cooked the meat in and stir it around real good. You want your mushrooms and onions to pick up all that goodness that was left behind from the patties. Sauté the onions and mushrooms for about 5 minutes or so. It should be smelling mighty fine in your kitchen by now. Stir in your garlic and tomato paste; sauté until paste begins to brown. This is going to take you about 1 minute. Sprinkle the remaining flour over the vegetables. Stir in the broth, wine and salt and give it a good stir. Get you a tasting spoon and get you a taste. You have to see if it needs anything. If it does go on and add whatever you think it needs. We are thinking all that it really needs is your lips wrapped around it. Let’s return the meat to your pan and bring the sauce to a boil. Spoon the gravy over the meat while you are cooking. Yum-my! Reduce your heat to medium-low cover, and simmer 10 minutes. While this is simmering let’s make the cheese toast. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Put your bread on a lined baking sheet (makes for easy clean up). Combine butter, garlic and Cajun seasoning. Slather garlic butter on one side of each slice of bread. Combine cheeses and sprinkle evenly over butter. Oh my goodness, just know that this is going to be good. Bake until the bread is crisp and the cheese is bubbly. This should take about 10-15 minutes. Watch it closely; don’t be burning your cheese toast. Finally, it is time to eat. Put you a piece of cheese toast on your plate, put you a patty on top and then ladle the gravy, onions and mushrooms on top. Dress your plate up by sprinkling parsley and Parmesan cheese on top. Get back Jackson this is going to be delicious.
