Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob

6 Aug

I had made Salisbury steak for the first time and liked it. I wanted to try another recipe though. Coincidentally while watching 30 minute meals, rachael ray was making salisbury steak. I decided to try her recipe. We both really liked this one. Husband said he liked rr’s version better. I served it with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

Don’t forget about my giveaway!


Salisbury Steaks with French Onion Gravy
adapted from 30 minute meals

EVOO for liberal drizzling
2 tablespoons butter
2 large onions, sliced
Salt and coarse black pepper
Ground thyme
1 bay leaf
2 pieces stale whole grain bread, crust trimmed
About 1 2/3 pounds ground beef
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons grated onion
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup beef stock

Place a drizzle of EVOO in a skillet over medium heat and melt the butter into the oil. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper, a little ground thyme and add the bay. Caramelize the onions until very soft and sweet and light golden in color, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, soak the bread in milk. Place the meat in a bowl and add the egg. Squeeze out the bread and crumble into crumbs as you add to the bowl. Add the Worcestershire and grated onion to the beef. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and combine. Form into 4 (1-inch thick) oval loaves. Heat a drizzle of EVOO in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the loaves and cook until cooked through, about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer the meat to a plate.
Sprinkle the flour over the caramelized onions, stir 1 minute. Deglaze the pan you cooked the meat in with chicken stock and pour into the onions. Add the beef stock and thicken a moment. Serve the gravy over the Salisbury steaks.
