Ground Beef Recipes
Salisbury Steak with Mushroom-Onion Gravy
This is a great recipe. Everyone I have given it to just loves it.
Yield: 4 servings
- 1 envelope onion soup mix (from a 2 ounce box of 2)
- 2 cups water
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef*
- 1/4 cup lightly packed parsley, chopped
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 3 1/2 to 4 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
- 1 beef bouillon cube**
- Mix 2 tablespoons soup mix and 1/4 cup water in large bowl. Add beef and parsley and mix until blended. Shape into 4 oval patties, about 5 inches long and 2/3 inch thick.
- Coat patties with 1 1/2 tablespoons flour.
- Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once, until crusty and no longer pink in the middle. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
- Add onion, mushrooms and 1/4 cup water to the drippings in skillet. Deglaze pan with wooden spoon. Turn heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally until onion and mushrooms are soft.
- Mix remaining soup mix, 1 1/2 cups water and 2 1/2 tablespoons flour in a small bowl. Stir into mushroom mixture, add bouillon cube and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until thickened. Return patties to skillet and turn to coat with gravy.
- Remove to plates and serve with remaining gravy.
* Or use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef.
** Or use a chicken bouillon cube.
I have used some dried parsley instead of fresh and it has turned out fine. I also add a little more water and make more gravy and serve with mashed potatoes, placing gravy over the steaks and mashed potatoes. My friend serves hers with rice instead of potatoes. Add a salad and green beans and you have a well rounded meal!
