- 1 pound of ground chuck
- ¼ cup of onion, chopped fine
- 3 tablespoons of bread crumbs
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon of pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) package of fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
- 1 ¾ cups of beef broth
- 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- Mix together the beef, chopped onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and form four beef patties.
- Then in a large frying pan cook the patties over a medium heat for 5 minutes per side.
- Remove the patties from the pan and set aside.
- Drain the frying pan but leave about 1 tablespoon of the drippings from the beef in the pan.
- Now cook the mushrooms and onion rings in the same pan with the drippings until the onions and mushrooms are tender.
- Add in the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce and stir.
- Place the cooked patties back into the frying pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
- Once the liquid comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and let it all cook for 15 minutes.
- While the Salisbury steaks are simmering put on a pot of water and then cook-up some egg noodles and a vegetable the family enjoys.
- When the noodles are done, drain them and place them on a large platter.
- Now remove the beef patties from the frying pan and set them upon the noodles.
- In a small bowl stir together the water and cornstarch and mix it in to the mushroom broth in the frying pan.
- Turn the heat up to a medium-high and allow it to come to a boil. This should take 1 minute and let it cook for an additional minute to thicken while stirring the gravy as it cooks.
- Pour the gravy and mushrooms over the patties and serve while hot.
