Step 3

Step 5
Layer 1 of patties
In the same pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium high. Create small patties from the 'Beef Patties' mixture above and add to pan in a single layer (cooking in batches), leaving 1/2-1 inch between each patty. Cook until brown, then flip and continue to cook.
Step 6
Cook all the patties
Cook beef patties until they are fully cooked. Remove from pan and cook the remaining patties. I find that I can make them in two batches. When they are all cooked, place all the patties back into the pan in a single layer.
Step 7
Add veggies and sauce
Add to the patties, the vegetable mixture and brown sauce. Cook on high for 2 minutes, allowing the vegetables and sauce to combine and become a bubbly thick sauce.

This can easily be adapted for an appetizer, either form smaller patties or balls and omit the vegetables. If serving as an appetizer, don’t omit the cornstarch as that will keep the patties together a little better and will hold better in an appetizer form.
