I was cruising through some food blogs the other day looking for ground beef recipes, and I found a recipe for Salisbury Steaks. I let out an unconscious groan and knew I had to get some in my belly soon. The blogger’s recipe was a little too gourmet for my budget these days, but no worries. I have a pantry full of ingredients and knew I could whip up something.
What I ended up with was a combination of recipes, and the results totally worked. Everything worked perfectly together. The patties held together beautifully (I used egg as the binder) and were caramelized on the outside while being moist and tender inside. I am very satisfied with my Savory Salisbury Steaks.
Simplified Savory Salisbury SteaksPrint Recipe
- 3/4 pound ground beef
- Pinch of salt
- Black Pepper to taste
- 1 cup prepared stuffing cubes
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 egg white
- 2 jars beef gravy (I used Heinz Homestyle Savory Beef)
1. Combine all ingredients except gravy. Form into three patties, about 1-inch thick and set on a plate.
2. Place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes for flavors to blend and patties to firm up.
3. Heat skillet over medium heat. When hot, add patties and brown on one side. When brown, flip and immediately reduce heat.
4. When the skillet has cooled just a bit (I did this to prevent the gravy from scorching and splattering everywhere), pour in gravy and season liberally with more pepper. Gently stir pepper into gravy without disturbing patties too much. Cover and slowly simmer for 30 minutes.
5. Serve and savor the scrumptiousness.
