The Very Best Salisbury Steak

This is our favorite salisbury steak recipe. I always make enough extra sauce to serve over potatoes. Tastes like it took all day to cook.

Great recipe! As with all recipes I tweaked it a bit according to personal preference. Keeping in mind that I never measure anything, here's my take on it: Instead of french onion soup, I use a dry packet of Knorr's onion soup mix. I combine 1/2 with the meat mixture (which otherwise is the same as this recipe) and reserve 1/2 for the sauce. For the sauce I use a tetra pak of beef broth to which I add onions, mushrooms, worchestershire & ketchup to taste, and the remaining onion soup mix. To thicken I use a flour & oil rue. Awesome over mashed potatoes!!!

Back 37 years ago when we first got married, this was one of my favorite recipes to make on a regular basis, then, somehow I lost the recipe!!! I am so happy to have found it again on "Zaar"!!! This is delicious, and the gravy is great over mashed potatoes!!! You can also bake these in a 350 degree oven for 60 minutes, pouring the gravy over the last 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!!! Thanks, Becky!!!
