This Salisbury Steak is one of the warm and hearty meals your family will love. Who doesn’t enjoy meat and potatoes for dinner. I know, it sounds old fashioned but this meal is filling and cheap to make and it will feed a crowd. When its cold outside this dish will warm up the insides.
This is one of the first dinners we have at the beginning of the winter. It’s pretty easy to make and is ready in a little over an hour.
I have taken these to family friends homes for the buffets and frozen it for meals in the future.
2 lbs hamburger- I normally use 80/20 but I have also used turkey and 90/10.
4 cloves to however much Garlic you want-grated
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Bread or Crackers
32 oz. Beef, Mushroom or Vegetable broth
2-4 tbsp of butter or olive oil
2-3 sliced onions, or 1-2 lbs of sliced mushrooms or both or adjust amounts for your tastes.
Add the garlic, Worcestershire,salt and pepper to the meat, don’t mix yet.
You have a couple choices now. You can either moisten 3 pieces of bread with milk or crunch up 10-12 crackers. I use Ritz but if I’m out of them I am not opposed to using another type of cracker. I have used multi-grain, soda, or whatever I have handy.
Then add 2 eggs.
Mix with your hands as quickly and gently as you can. Shape into patties.
Start frying patties on medium heat. We don’t want them to be done- just browned on both sides. As they brown put into a casserole dish.
After the patties are done, slice up a couple to onions and saute in the same pan, you might want to drain the fat and add some olive oil or butter.
After the onion or mushrooms or both are almost done, add the flour and cook for a couple more minutes as you stir. Then pour over the patties in the casserole dish.
Preheat the over to 350 degrees.
Add the beef, mushroom or vegetable stock over the the onions and patties.
Slip into the oven and get comfy or make mashed potatoes or rice. (We’ve even eaten these over big pieces of bread)
It needs to bake for about 40 minutes.
This will make enough for 6-10 people depending on how big you make the patties.
