Salisbury Steak






Salisbury-Steak

 
     Here is another one of those traditional American dishes that some may consider "comfort" food. I had never really had it before this day when I decided to give it a try and make it. We grew up with another similar American dish called Baked Steak, but this was completely different. (By the way, I never was a fan of the baked steak my mother made). Shhhhh.  This dish combines ground beef into a steak patty and is served with a bbq style gravy. I must say, I quite liked it. Salisbury Steak.

 





Ingredients:


  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 10 oz can French Onion Soup
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, (more if needed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs flour
  • 3 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs mustard
  • 1/2 tbs Worcestershire
  • 1/2 cup diced mushrooms
  • Salt/pepper


 
1. Combine ground beef, about a tablespoon of the French Onion Soup, bread crumbs, egg, and salt and pepper. Make into 3 round patties.
 
2. In a large skillet, brown patties on both sides.
 
3. Toss in mushrooms and saute after flipping the patties onto the second side.
 
4. In a large bowl combine by whisking, flour, rest of the can of soup, ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.
 
5. Pour into skillet, cover and simmer for roughly 10-15 minutes.
