Salisbury Steak

I'm all about quick and tasty meals so when I spotted this recipe for Salisbury steak I knew I had to give it a try.  It has minimal ingredients and takes about 45 minutes to prepare best of all everyone in the house liked it so it will be a keeper on our rotation of recipes.

What you will need:

1 pound of ground beef
1 egg
3 tablespoon of breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons finely chopped onions (I just used 1 tablespoon of onion salt)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning (I personally don't think I will add this next time)
2 (4 ounce) cans sliced mushrooms with juice (I just used 1 10 ounce can and next time I would drain the juice)
3 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour (I used the flour you use for making gravy)
3 cups of milk
3 cubes beef bouillon

How to make it :

  1. In  a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning using your hands.  Shape into 6 patties about 1 inch thick.
  2. Fry the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until browned.  Drain off grease, and remove patties to a platter; keep warm.
  3. Melt butter in the same skillet and add mushrooms.  Cook and stir for about 2 minutes.  Sprinkle the flour over and mix in until blended.  Stir in the milk and beef bouillon.  Cook and stir medium heat until smooth and starting to thicken.  Return the patties to the gravy and cook over low heat, uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I served it with mashed potatoes and cream corn.  Everyone attempted to eat it and for the most part it was a success.  The only thing I found was it was very salty so I could probably drain the mushrooms, cut the salt out the hamburger patties as well as the poultry seasoning.   You could use unsalted butter and I'm not sure if you really need that much beef bouillon either so I may try adding a little less next time.

My camera is presently in for repairs so I couldn't take a picture but my darling husband said to picture "Hamburger patties in gravy with mushrooms on top".

Enjoy !

You can definitely leave the extra salt out, use herbs and stuff for flavor. I usually use a little bit of beef bouillon and pepper only.

These are on our list of favorites too, I grew up making them. I alwaysmake a big batch if biscuits too. An easy way is to use premade hamburger patties - saves time if you don't have much.

Now I know what we're having for dinner
