This is a wonderful alternative to the traditionally frozen version. It is very juicy and flavorful. It's also very easy.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 (7/8 ounce) envelope brown gravy mix
- 1 small onion, diced very small (or dried)
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 (4 ounce) package saltine crackers, crumbled (one sleeve)
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 1 dash garlic powder
- 1⁄4 cup water (more or less to form patties)
- Combine all the ingredients (water last). Mix it all using your hands, then form thick patties.
- Fill a skillet until the patties are less than a quarter covered (approx. 1/4 inch water). Frying in water helps them retain their juiciness.
- When meat is done on the inside brown slightly on both sides.
- If desired, a second envelope of brown gravy may be used to pour over the patties at the table (follow package directions), but they are so juicy you usually don't need it.
Great Salisbury steak recipe - I grilled these over charcoal, we love the smoky-char taste to them when you make them that way.. much like the frozen ones, lol.. highly recommended - the gravy mix IN the meat mixture was genius.. thanks much!
Awesome!!! I used beef broth instead of water and oh my was it AMAZING!!!!!
Definately a comfort food, especially when the temp drops to 45 degrees! We loved this with fresh broccoli and mashed potatoes to make use of the gravy. Thank you Rob's Wife for posting this just when the weather turned cold on us all.
