Hamburger gravy over pierogies

Instead of making hamburgs make hamburger gravy.  When mom didn't know what to make this was always a hit.  Instead of making actual hamburgers she would while frying the beef break it up with a wooden spoon in small pieces as you would when making chili. We really liked it and often mom would serve it over bread for a quick meal.  It's really good and if you haven't tried something like this I think your family would like it and it sure is a quick meal when you don't know what to make and everyone is hungry.  Serve it with some buttered corn and the kids will be happy. Today I served it over pierogies.  Tasty!

1 lb. ground beef fried and broken in small pieces while frying
1 medium onion grated fine or chopped thin
2 T. Canola or olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups water
12 potato cheese pierogies

In a medium size pan place oil add beef ,onion, salt and pepper.  Fry slowly until meat browns and is slightly crispy so as to make a nice gravy with some color. Add water and bring to a boil over medium heat.

 While you are doing that in a small dish place 3 to 4 T flour (I prefer Wondra it is pre-sifted) and about 1/4 cup water. Whisk until smooth  add to beef mixture. Stir constantly until it starts to thicken.  Serve over cooked pierogies or bread.   Enjoy! 

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours,
