Salisbury Steak with Onions

 Fourth of July has passed.  Everyone is probably over the hotdog, hamburger scene for at least a week, and now what?  I decided to share a recipe today that is pretty easy and I find that the ingredients are ones we usually have in our pantries. I found this recipe in a magazine called Cuisine at Home, great recipes and tips.  However, this one seemed to need a little more flavor so I did add several ingredients.  

Serves 4


1 lb. ground beef

1/4 C. fresh minced parsley

2 T. scallions, minced

1 t. kosher salt

1/2 t. pepper

2 T. flour

1 T. olive oil

2 C. yellow or white onions, sliced

1 t. sugar

1 T. minced garlic

1 T. tomato paste

2 C. beef broth

1/4 C. red wine

1 T. Better than Bouillon Beef flavor

1 T. cornstarch (mixed in 3-4 T. of the hot gravy) before adding to skillet

1/2 t. salt and pepper

1/2 t. dried thyme

1/2 t. Herbs de Provence


Combine ground beef, parsley, scallion, salt and pepper. Once combined form into 4 patties.

Place 2 T. flour in a dish and dredge patties on both sides. Heat oil in large skillet and cook patties 3 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and place on a plate. Set aside. 

Add sliced onions and sugar to the skillet. Sauté 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste until well mixed. Sprinkle with 1 T. of flour and cook 2 minutes. Stir in broth, wine and beef bouillon, then add salt, pepper, thyme and Herb de Provence. Return meat to the skillet and simmer 30 minutes uncovered on low heat. 

Take cornstarch in a small glass bowl or measuring cup and stir in a few tablespoons of hot gravy. Once mixed add to the skillet for a little extra thickening.

Serve with mashed potatoes as this sauce is so great on the potatoes as well as the steaks.

Tips: If you don't want to freeze or throw out  1/2 can of tomato paste, remember to pick up the paste in a tube.  Just squeeze out the amount you need and keep in the refrigerator.

Since this is meant to be a quick and easy recipe, making homemade mash potatoes sometimes isn't possible. I use the instant potatoes and find them really good especially when you're covering them in a sauce.

As with all the recipes I share, please be creative and experiment by adding ingredients you feel will enhance the flavor.

Also share a recipe every chance you get!
