I hate protein shakes. They taste like crap and you can build muscle just as well with tasty foods like chicken or steak.
Fill all my holes, please.

Protein shakes, in my opinion and what pervasively works, should be secondary to the diet. When I was training a couple of years ago for a competition, I was drinking shakes 2-3 times a day, including muscle milk, BSN's synth 6, and I was gaining a load of weight. However the weight I was gaining was a ratio of 2-1 (fat to muscle) which I did not prefer. This was not due to the shakes, but my terrible diet. My senior year in college I was training for a powerlifting meet, and I was not taking any protein shakes yet gained 5 pounds in about 5 months. I had my Exercise Science major friends, analyze my body fat and I had actually only gained about a pound of fat during the process.

Yet then again, everyone's metabolic rate varies. What worked for me could be contradicting advice for you. If you are an already lean, or relatively lean individual, protein shakes could yield optimal results. They are not necessary for muscle development, nor are they completely useless. I suggest diet first, and then consider protein. Optimum Nutrition is a recommendation if you are interested.

I would, but my family cannot afford steak and egg dinner every night.

You can get organic free range chicken for 3 bucks a pound. That's pretty affordable, if you ask me.

Your body doesn't need steak or eggs to build muscle anyways. Sweet potatoes, walnuts, almonds, fish, quinoa (a grain).

They work, or better said, they help. But they won't do the work for you, nor they are miraculous on its effects. Overall, I would say they make u gain muscle maybe 10-15% faster.

I disagree with the percentage you provided. Extra protein does not "speed" up the rate of muscle development. Protein is required for muscle maintenance and development, but does not speed the process up.

Well I really felt I was gaining muscle a little bit faster when I used them. But maybe it was just me.

You were gaining muscle as fast as your body permitted, with or without the protein. The protein shakes may have allowed your body to gain slightly more muscle, but had nothing to do with the speed.

Although from a biochemical perspective, the more aminoacids the cell has, the faster will it make proteins, at least untill the enzimes are saturated and maximum synthesis speed is reached. So what exactly would be the mechanism that stops you from gain muscle faster?

Not faster, more efficiently. The recovery process and other genetic/hormonal factors, determines how fast the body develops muscle, which protein consumption indirectly affects. Neglecting the recovery process; sleep, and nutrition will hinder the body's ability to develop muscle, efficiently.

protein shakes do help your training. you need protein when you train to your muscles, if you don't get enough protein the traning will not do anything. you drink protein shakes to make sure you get enough proteins.

All the proteins your body needs can be find it from a natural sources. If indeed you feel weak or you feel your muscles are not growing up as you wish, the reason could be because the food putting in your plate is not enough healthy so your body may be using other kind energy sources from your muscles and saving fat, sugars (carbohydrates) and proteins in the wrong places (around organs).
You can keep making exercise all your life and keep a diet of lower calories, but you will not probably see your muscles growing.
What I recommend is check the food in your plate (as more natural you can) avoid all the artificiall sources as well, and then, start to work out.
Leave a healthy life is not easy! But you has been giving up bad habits, didn't you? So let's keep working that and the body you want will come as a result of a great healthy life.
The best!
