Savory Salisbury Steak

Yes, I know my recipe names tend to be alliterative. So sue me.

There are days when only comfort food will do, and believe me, this is true comfort food. It’s the kind of stuff that just makes you sigh, close your eyes, and savor the happy dance going on in your mouth.

Just because the cut of meat is not shall we say premium, doesn’t mean that the flavor can’t wow ya.

So do check out this recipe and give it a go. I promise, it is mouth-pleasing and your family will be much more inclined to help out with the housework in return for this meal.


  • 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef, leaner rather than fatty.
  • 1 -2 cloves garlic, microplaned.
  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper
  • 1 fairly large onion, sliced
  • 1 cup or so of sliced mushrooms of your choice
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 2 cups of beef stock
  • 1/2 c of red wine
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 c fresh chopped parsley


  1. Add garlic salt and pepper to the meat and blend gently. Form into 4 patties.
  2. Place in a large saute pan and brown well on both sides. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add the onions and mushrooms and additional oil if necessary. Saute until softened, and mushrooms have released their juice. Remove and add to the meat.
  4. Add the butter and flour and make a roux, cooking for a couple of minutes.
  5. Add the stock and wine and bring to a boil, stirring until thickened.
  6. Add back the meat, onions and mushrooms. Turn burner down to low, cover, and barely simmer for about 30 minutes.

Serves: 4

NOTE: Serve with mashed potatoes, noodles, rice, or my favorite homemade biscuits!
