Salisbury Steak With Mushroom Gravy

"Another option to the way we make the American classic. Who would have thought that the well known TV dinner entree could be so easy to make and the flavor could be so great. Hope you enjoy this one."

    This made really good hamburgers, but ours fell apart for some reason. We even added extra breadcrumbs and 2 eggs instead of one. We're going to try making these again and see if we can get them holding together. :)

    This was spectacular. This recipe brings a classic dish to a whole new level. The cognac, mushrooms and packaged gravy mix created a wonderfully smooth and flavorful gravy to serve over the Salisbury Steaks. This is a definite "keeper" that I'll serve often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, quick meal. Made for Spring 2010 Pick-A-Chef.

    Fantastic! Got this recipe from Sandra Lee at Food Network. Finally made it last night. My DH and our guest both said it was the best they've ever had. I didn't do the cognac or mushrooms because I was out, but still came out wonderful. Very moist even though I used 93% lean ground beef. I only had one 10.6 oz can beef broth so I added water to equal 16oz. Served with mashed potatos and green beans.
