Salisbury Steak

The Menu:
Salisbury Steak

The Original Recipe:
My kids love On-Cor Salisbury Steaks. It says No Preservatives right on the package, and for a quick easy meal, I am sold. I am not sure how healthy the meat is, but still, we have it every now and then, and it's a time when I don't have to think about what I am cooking. I whip up some mashed potatoes, thaw some corn out and voila, a nice fast supper. However (you knew that was coming didn't you!?!), I found this recipe, and I have recently come into a good bit of frozen hamburger to use, so I thought I would try making my own. This was delicious!! I personally think it was a good meal to make in the summer. I grilled the "steaks" on the grill before I plopped them into the oven. Now, I used this recipe as a guideline to making my own. My recipe will follow this one!

The Way I Made It My Own:
These tasted just like the frozen On-Cor Salisbury Steaks (but Better!). The gravy just tasted the same, to me. The "steaks" were better, in my opinion! I would definitely make these again! Yum! I didn't have some of the ingredients, so I made up my own. So good.
 
Kowboy's  Salisbury Steak


Ingredients

1 tbls. onion flakes + 1 tsp. onion flakes
 2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
 2 eggs
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
 1 Jar Heinz Homestyle Beef Gravy
2 beef bullion cubes
 1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp. teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
 1/4 cup water + 1/2 cup water

 Directions

In a large bowl, mix together 1/4 cup water, 1 tbls. onion flakes, pepper, and 1 beef bullion cube, mix until cube is dissolved. Add in ground beef and eggs, add bread crumbs; mix to combine.

Shape into 12 oval patties.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. (Now, this process you can do, or you can cook it outside on the grill to get those cool grill lines and nice grill flavor! Which is what I did! You don't have to make sure they are cooked through. They will cook through in the oven. You just want the nice grill marks on them though)

In a small bowl, add 1/2 cup water and bullion cube. Stir until dissolved. Add onion flakes, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder and jar of Heinz gravy, stir to combine. (Sounds weird. Just do it. Trust me.)

In 13x9 pan, place grilled patties, and pour gravy over top. Cover with foil and Bake 350 for 30 minutes. (I suppose (in order to not heat your over) you could place all the patties in a large pan on the stove, pour gravy over, cover, and heat until bubbly for 30 minutes. Just make sure your patties are done!)
