salisbury steak with mushroom gravy
Shannon made dinner for the meal swap tonight and it was a hit! My kids at different times said, "I like it!" In fact, they liked it so much I was glad I ate mine quickly or I'd have gone without.
salisbury steak with mushroom gravy (adapted from Cooking Light Magazine, December 2010)
1/3 cup grated onions, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground sirloin
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
1/3 cup dry red wine
1 1/4 cups fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
few dashes Worcestershire sauce
Combine 1/4 cup onion, pepper, salt, garlic and beef. Shape into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.
Melt butter in pan. Add mushrooms; saute 4 minutes. Stir in wine and remaining onion; cook 2 minutes. Combine broth and flour; add to pan, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until thick. Stir in ketchup and add Worcestershire sauce. Add patties and vinegar to pan; cook 2 minutes. Yield: 4 servings
What I have to say- I love that the onions were grated. It was a nice way to add flavor in a discrete way so my kids didn't pick them out or eat around them.
