TBT-Salisbury Steak


It's a TBT, otherwise known as Throwback Thursday! 

I don't know about you, but I remember the iconic TV dinners, and this is a classic one. 

Updated, it's leaner, more flavorful, and it really is a quick weeknight meal. 

But, hey! I wouldn't mind having this meal with company either, it's that good'


My family loves this meal...

Who wouldn't love a delicious seasoned patty, covered in a luscious onion gravy WITH mashed potatoes of course?!

And no, there isn't a can of soup used here folks.



Okay, let's do this!





Ingredients

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder
1 tbsn Worcestershire Sauce
1tbsn ketchup
1/4 cup of dry Bread Crumbs
2 Tablespoons of Butter
1  medium Onion, peeled, halved and sliced
2 cups of Water
2 teaspoons of Beef Bouillon Granules or 1 Knorr brand beef bouillon cube-I prefer Knorr

Opt: 2 tsp of cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsn of water (slurry)


Directions

In a mixing bowl, combine the Beef, Black Pepper, Salt, Garlic Powder, Worcestershire Sauce, Bread Crumbs and kethchup. Combine using your clean hands or a spatula to mix together well.
Shape into 4 equal sized oblong patties.
Heat a skillet over medium heat for about a minute, and then add Butter.
Place meat patties in skillet and brown on both sides for about 4-5 minutes each. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Add the sliced Onion into the skillet, right on top of the browned bits and using a wooden spoon or spatula stir them to coat in the butter and browned goodness.
Reduce the heat and cook the onions on medium-low heat until the onions turn translucent and slightly browned, this may take 15 minutes.
Add 1 1/2 cups of warm water and the beef bouillon, stir well. Raise the heat back up to about medium and bring to a quick simmer.
Place the meat patties back in the pan. Cover slightly and Reduce the heat just a little and let simmer for about 15 more minutes. At this point I like to add the slurry, it adds body and makes the sauce silky-totally optional.
Remove from heat and serve warm with the sauce and onions on top.


Enjoy!
