I can remember every meal at my Marmy's house was soooo one could cook like her. The most simple meal was so special probably 'cause she looked forward to seeing us all year, and while we were there she was busy from sun up until dark cooking our favorites. This was mine and I still enjoy it. Prep time includes time in the refrigerator to "sit". I use ground round but in my early married days when the kids were young and money was really stretched I bought the cheapest ground beef or what was on sale. Was always good. I have added the soup/milk mixture to the same frying pan I fried slices in and simmered it covered for 30-45 minutes while I fixed the rest of my meal. I prefer this method...less dishes to wash..always a good idea! Hope you enjoy!

I used Panko and this was easy to mix and put together. I did add a dash of Worcestershire sauce to the soup mix before pouring it over the steaks and these baked up like Salisbury steaks, very tender and delicious. Thanks for posting cinda, Made for PAC Spring 2010.

This is so creative. I am guessing your Marmy is your grandma. I just became a grandma and i will be making this for my grandbabies.

I wasn't able to get the loaf to shape or stay together. It fell apart when I tried to cut it into slices. It tasted great. Maybe I did something wrong? I also wasn't sure if it should be covered or uncovered in the oven. We did 30min covered and 15min uncovered. That seemed to work.
