I must admit, I’ve never had Salisbury Steak until we made it. Yep, it’s true. LOL I never ate it in school whenever it was served for lunch; however, something tells me that this recipe is MUCH better than what they serve in schools! It was delicious. It probably helps that I’m a huge gravy lover. :) Best part? This is a HEALTHY dish! ENJOY! :)
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp bread crumbs
- 1 small onion, minced
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 c reduced-sodium beef stock
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- In a bowl, beat egg; stir in bread crumbs, half the onion, 1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper; mix in ground beef.
- Form into four patties, each 4 inches in diameter.
- Add patties in a large non-stick skillet with oil over medium-high heat; brown patties, about 2 minutes on each side.
- Transfer to a plate and drain fat from pan; add remaining onion, garlic, and thyme to skillet.
- Cook onions and garlic, stirring, for 2 minutes or until softened.
- Sprinkle in flour; stir in remaining 1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, beef stock and tomato paste.
- Cook gravy, stirring, for 1 minute or until thickened.
- Return patties to skillet; reduce heat, cover and simmer, turning once, for 10 minutes or until the patties are no longer pink in center.
- We served this with baked potatoes in which we spooned some of the gravy on top.
