Recently I went to the kitchen to fix supper and I suddenly thought about an old favorite recipe, and the craving for it caused me to immediately change my menu for the night! It’s one of those comfort-food kind-of-dishes that is delicious, easy and filling, yet so simple that I had everything for it on hand already! It’s also ready in under 30 minutes!!
What did I make? Salisbury steak.! If you’re thinking about the frozen dinner variety, think again. This is meaty, plump and bursting with flavor as well as plenty of gravy to cover the meat and/or any potato you might eat with it.
My recipe came from the Betty Crocker American Country Cooking Cookbook. It has some fantastic recipes in it but the Salisbury Steak is probably my favorite! If you’re wondering what to have for supper this week, this could be your next family favorite!
1 pound lean ground beef
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs (any flavor)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large onion, sliced and separated into rings
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
2 tablespoons cold water
2 teaspoons cornstarch
- Mix beef, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and egg. Shape into 4 oval patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.
- Cook patties in 10-inch skillet over medium heat about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until brown; drain. Add onion, broth and mushrooms. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until beef is done.
- Remove patties; keep warm. Heat onion mixture to boiling. Mix water and cornstarch; stir into onion mixture. Boil and stir 1 minute. Serve over patties.
What dish do you sometimes crave?
With love from my country kitchen,
