Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. Mix together the beef, chopped onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and form four beef patties.
  2. Then in a large frying pan cook the patties over a medium heat for 5 minutes per side.
  3. Remove the patties from the pan and set aside.
  4. Drain the frying pan but leave about 1 tablespoon of the drippings from the beef in the pan.
  5. Now cook the mushrooms and onion rings in the same pan with the drippings until the onions and mushrooms are tender.
  6. Add in the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce and stir.
  7. Place the cooked patties back into the frying pan and bring the mixture to a boil.
  8. Once the liquid comes to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and let it all cook for 15 minutes.
  9. 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.
  10. When the noodles are done, drain them and place them on a large platter.
  11. Now remove the beef patties from the frying pan and set them upon the noodles.
  12. In a small bowl stir together the water and cornstarch and mix it in to the mushroom broth in the frying pan.
  13. 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.
  14. Pour the gravy and mushrooms over the patties and serve while hot.
  15. Enjoy!
