A simple ground beef dish
No-Fuss Salisbury Steak
The Best of Mr. Food Copyright 2000
1 pound ground beef
¼ cup finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons fine, dry breadcrumbs (store-bought)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. Shape mixture into 4 patties.
2. Cook patties in a large skillet over medium heat 5 minutes on each side. Remove patties from skillet, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet. Set patties aside.
3. Cook mushrooms and onion in drippings over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until tender. Add broth and Worcestershire sauce to skillet. Return patties to skillet; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove patties from skillet with slotted spoon; place on a platter. Set aside and keep warm.
4. Combine water and cornstarch; stir well. Add to broth mixture. Bring to a boil; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until thickened. Spoon over patties.
This wasn’t bad. Simple fare. A decent meal but nothing I'll be rushing to make again. I think a fattier ground beef would make for tastier Salisbury steak but I only buy the lean ground beef these days.
This recipe was chosen for convenience reasons but Mr. Food has plenty of more interesting recipes to chose from in this book.
