Making Something You Don’t Like Into Something You Do!!

With all my new playing with recipes to make new ones of my own, one challenge has been dealing with the dreaded foods I don’t like. There are some things that with some tweaking would probably be a lot more to my liking. I cook things for my husband I don’t care for because he does.

I was thinking about that very thing and poof! Salisbury Steaks! They always tasted kind of high school cafeteria to me. I think I’ve tweaked it enough to create a delicious week night dinner everyone will enjoy!

First make sure you are boiling potatoes to mash!

In a large bowl, crumble 1-1/2 lbs ground beef. Add 1/2 C breadcrumbs, 3T minced onion, 1 beaten egg, 1/4C ketchup, 4-5 shakes Worcestershire Sauce, 1t basil, 1t thyme, and salt & pepper to taste. Dig your nice clean hands into that bowl and mix everything til really well combined. Form into 4 equal sized oval patties.

In a large pan, melt 1T butter in 1T olive oil over med-hi heat. When sizzling, set patties in pan. Cook 6 min per side, or til desired doneness. Remove to a plate and cover with foil.

Add 2T butter to pan. As it melts, stir up brown bits on the bottom of pan. Add 1C sliced onions and 8 oz sliced mushrooms. Stir and cook 3-5 minutes. Whisk in 2C beef broth, 2T ketchup, 4-5 shakes Worcestershire Sauce, and salt & pepper to taste. Stir well to combine, cook and simmer 5 min, stirring occasionally.

Whisk 2T cornstarch into 2T cold water. Stir into gravy. Over medium, cook a few minutes til thick and bubbly. Add patties back to pan, spoon gravy over meat.

To serve, plunk a nice scoop of mashed potatoes on a plate. Put a patty on top of the potatoes, and spoon gravy over all. Oh. My. My. This is absolutely amazing! I sure do like Salisbury Steak now!

This is a quick, easy recipe for a comforting, delicious, hot week night meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Love, Grammy ❤
