Reviews for Hearty Salisbury Steaks
"This was good and I will probably make it again. I did use an egg instead of the substitute. My husband said it "wasn't his favorite," hence four stars."
"A good recipe, but a bit overwhelming with the onions. Next time, I would cut back if I use onion soup AND onion in the meat. The gravy is good, but I'll double that part next time."
"Best I've made"
"This recipe is definitely a KEEPER! What a wonderful down-home meal! I served this with the Flavorful Mashed Potatoes recipe and some steamed mixed veggies, and it was just delightful! My husband loved it, and so did my kids...even my picky 7-year old! I used Laura's Lean Beef (96% lean ground beef, hormone free) for an even leaner, lighter-calorie steak. I used liquid egg whites instead of egg substitute (to avoid all those artificial ingredients), and I used heart-healthy olive oil instead of canola oil. I also sprinkled in a little Nature's Seasons seasoning blend into the patty mixture for added seasoning. It was amazing!"
"My entire family loved this recipe, even my picky 7 year old!"
