An easy Salisbury steak recipe combines French onion soup mix, ground beef, bread crumbs and gravy. The meat is formed into patties and baked in the oven for an hour. This recipe is traditionally served with mashed potatoes and either candied carrots or corn.
A simple recipe for Salisbury steak begins with combining 2 pounds of ground beef into a mixing bowl with 1 cup of bread crumbs and 1 package of French onion soup mix. The mixture is formed into patties and placed in a baking dish. If desired, 1 can of sliced mushrooms can be sprinkled on top of the patties before adding 1 12-ounce jar of beef gravy. The gravy is spread over the top of the patties, and then the baking dish is covered with foil. The Salisbury steak is baked at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour.
A different version with a barbecue taste calls for mixing 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef with 1/3 can of condensed French onion soup, 1 egg, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper in a mixing bowl. The meat is formed into six patties, placed in a skillet over medium heat and browned. After the meat has browned, the fat is drained off.
In a small bowl, the remaining French onion soup, 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon flour, 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup of water are blended together. This sauce is poured over the patties in the skillet. The skillet is then covered and the patties simmer in the sauce for 20 minutes before serving.
