I remember when I was a kid, my grandfather used to love "TV dinners". I don't know why, because my grandma was a fabulous cook. Maybe it had something to do with growing up during the Depression Era. One of his favorites was Salisbury steak...
I'm not really a ground beef fan, but this recipe for Salisbury steak is pretty good. And Gus loves it!
Quick-N-Easy Salisbury Steak
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 c. plain bread crumbs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 can French onion soup
1 TBSP. flour
1/4 c. ketchup
2 TBSP. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dried ground mustard
1/4 c. water
1) Mix together ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and 1/4 c. of the French onion soup. Do not overmix.
2) Shape into 3-4 patties - do not pack tightly.
3) Brown both sides of patties in skillet.
4) In bowl, mix flour and 1/2 c. of the remaining French onion soup until smooth. Then add ketchup, water, Worchestershire sauce, and dried mustard.
5) Pour over patties in skillet and cook for about 20 minutes, flipping the patties over once during that time.
And in a nod to those long-ago TV dinners, I served my Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables.
A quick, easy meal for those busy days!!
I hope you and your family enjoy the Salisbury steak - I'd love to hear if you try it!
