Salisbury Steak Supreme
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min.
This is just an ok recipe. We found that there were too many onions in the Salisbury steaks and it overtook the steaks.
This was a great base recipe! After reading comments, I added egg to the ground beef mixture to hopefully avert the crumbling patties, and it helped a lot! We have a large family, so I tripled the meat and added 2 eggs. It was a hit!
We found it needed a lot more flavor than this recipe offered, and the cornstarch sauce had kind of a slimy-feeling element to it. Blame it on New Orleans, my home town; I have a picky palate. While mixing the meat patties, in addition to the recipe's ingredients,I added a shot of Worcestershire, a good dash of garlic powder, and a generous pinch of dried thyme. In place of the sauce I substituted this: made a red-brown roux (equal parts oil and flour), then added to it finely chopped celery, bell pepper, and the onion, sauteed till the veggies were soft. Added 2 toes of pressed fresh garlic till fragrant, then stirred in beef stock till it was the consistency I wanted. Tasted for salt. Added steaks back to the skillet. Zatarain's or Emeril's or homemade Creole seasoning mix - without salt if you can find it -- would work very well to help season the sauce. A scant teaspoon or so of tomato paste wouldn't hurt.

Just thought it was okay. Looked and smelled better than it tasted.
OK, a few tweaks needed. This was delicious but 2 red onions was definitely too much. Also, I thought the sauce was a bit too little. I would double the sauce recipe. I found that the recommended cooking time for the burgers was not enough, ours were a bit too rare for our liking so I will go for about 10 minutes on each side. The butter amount to saute the onions and mushrooms in didn't last long enough but I think that will be solved by reducing the amount of onions. I loved the red onions in this recipe, my mom always made it with yellow onions and this had a much milder taste. Very good and I definitely will make this again....and again!
Whoa. Two medium red onions in our part of the woods was WAY too much. One onion would have been plenty. Overall this was so good. I've never had this home made, and once we tossed half the onions, it was perfect. I don't keep many recipes but this is a keeper!
Another winner on my list of recipes to depend upon for speed, ease and wonderful taste. I made no changes, but next time I will probably use wine instead of water. From one field editor to another, Good Job, Patricia
I haven't eaten Salisbury steak since it was served in my grade school cafeteria. We really enjoyed this dish, and I would make it again. I can't think of any way to improve it except maybe a dash of red wine? Thanks Patricia for a great go-to recipe.
I have a favorite "go to" Salisbury Steak recipe and was reluctant to try this one. I loved the use of the soft bread crumbs which made the steaks really tender. I still like my original sauce better so will use this meat recipe with my original sauce recipe. It makes for a great make ahead meal to finish off baking in the oven.
