Salisbury Steak

My son loves Salisbury Steak with mashed potatoes. I totally understand because I too loved it as a kid but I never had someone make it for me. I either had it in the cafeteria or in a tv dinner. I had tried to make it a few times and Coolidge was very happy with what I came up with but I was not. I kept searching and found a recipe on Tasty kitchen by a blog called Meeshie's mom. It got 5 stars and I found it was just what I was looking for, so I gave it a try. It was just what I hoped it would be so I want to share it with all of you. I altered it a bit because my son doesn't like certain things.

1/4 cup onion finally diced or even grated
1 clove garlic minced
3 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon of dried parsley
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cans low sodium beef broth or beef consomme

Saute garlic and onion in 1 tablespoon of butter until translucent. Set aside and cool.

Mix beef, eggs, bread crumbs, dried parsley, and onion mixture. Form into patties.

Saute patties in 2 tablespoons butter. Brown on both sides and becareful when flipping because they will be delicate. Place in roasting pan or casserole dish.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a skillet melt 1/4 cup butter. Add 1/4 cup flour and cook until flour is cooked through and resembles wet sand. Slowly add beef consomme 1/3 at a time whisking each time and simmering for about 30 minutes.

Pour gravy over patties and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

Makes about 5 to 6 patties depending on how thick you make them.

  3. Yes! Good call...I haven't had this in a while.

  4. I understand what you mean about Salisbury Steak needing to be "just what you hoped it would be." This sounds wonderful!

  5. Andrea-
    I'm so happy you tried and enjoyed this recipe. We love it! We also add sauted onion to the top. The patties can also be made ahead and kept in the freezer making them a perfect midweek meal.

    PS Love your blog.
