Salisbury Steak

My husband, C, is a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, and when I say meat, I mean BEEF!  I am always on the lookout for a steak or ground beef recipe that I think he will enjoy.  This recipe comes from the website, www.allrecipes.com, which is one of my favorite places to look for fresh cooking ideas.  There are thousand upon thousands of recipes and you can adapt them to the amount of servings you need.  Check it out!

This is the original recipe which was listed for 6 steaks.  I made six steaks and they were huge!  You can easily make 8 or more depending on the size you want.  I used 2 skillets to cook them at the same time and divided the sauce into each one.  The only change I would like to make is regarding the sauce.  It is so good, but there just isn’t quite enough of it.  I am going to have to tinker with it so there will be more sauce.  If you have a beef lover in your family, this is a winner.

1 10.5oz can condensed French onion soup

1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1 egg

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

1 tbsp all purpose flour

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup water

1 tbsp Worcestshire sauce

1/2 tsp mustard powder


In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup French onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper.  Shape into 6 (or 8) oval patties.


In a large skillet (or 2) over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties.  Pour off excess fat.  In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth.  Mix in remaining ingredients until combined.  Pour over meat in the skillet(s).  Cover & turn heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
