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!
