Look...I know what you're thinking. Salisbury Steak is disgusting. It's a gelatinous patty covered with brown slimy goo that the lunch lady shovels on your plate at school. There is nothing gourmet about it. Never can be. Never will be. Just drop the ground beef and step away from the kitchen with your hands where I can see them.
Well I'm hate to tell you, my friend...but you've been lied to. Despite the best efforts of certain covert, shadowy government people, I know the truth! Salisbury Steak is incredibly delicious if you make it with the proper ingredients. Today...I will impart on you knowledge THEY don't want you to know. How to make Gourmet Salisbury Steak!
- 1 can condensed French onion soup
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- A dash of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 4 tablespoons mustard
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties in a little oil. Pour off excess fat.
Meanwhile, in a pot, blend flour and remaining 2/3 cup soup until smooth. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce and mustard.
When it's done, pop it on a plate, spoon some gravy over the top and serve with mashed potatoes...just like the lunch lady would have done!
