Cooking On A Budget: Salisbury Steak

Salisbury Steak

This supper reminds me of  back in the day simple suppers. Gathered around a stainless steel table with a colorful top and chatting about school, work and crazy friends like Eddie Haskell.

If you have made a pot of my French Onion Soup and have just a cup or so left it will be perfect for this dish. You can add sliced mushrooms as a component for this recipe and saute them prior to adding the sauce.

  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 3 tbsp. ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. onion - finely minced
  • 1 clove garlic - finely minced
  • 1 cup left over french onion soup (or buy a can of onion soup)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, egg and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Shape into oval patties.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the ketchup, water, Worcestershire and the dry mustard to form a sauce*.
  4. In a deep skillet or frying pan over medium heat add the beef patties.
  5. Fry on either side until you get a nice crispy brown color.
  6. Remove the patties from the heat to an awaiting plate.
  7. To the skillet add the onion soup along with the sauce*.
  8. Cook for approximately 3 minutes and then add the patties back into the pan.
  9. Continue to cook covered for about 20-25 minutes until all of the flavors develop.
