I definitely did not want to cook dinner tonight but since I already took LAST night off from cooking I HAD to get in the kitchen tonight! There was a pound of ground beef thawing in the fridge so at least I had a starting point…I hate it when you are racking your brain trying to suss out what to cook for dinner and you don’t even know where to begin so you start going through the entire contents of your fridge and pantry in your mind. For one, it usually gives you a huge headache.
Alright, so knew I had to cook that ground beef (by the way, I take zero pleasure in cooking poor ol’ Bessy ); I started thinking about the things my mother used to cook with ground beef besides Cabbage Rolls, Meatloaf and Spaghetti Sauce…I was about to search google for ideas when I remembered Salisbury Steak! Not sure why they call it “steak” but whatever.
1 package Onion Soup Mix
1 lb Ground Beef
1 slice Bread, crumbled
1/3 cup Milk
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 small Onion, sliced
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 cup Water
1/2 teaspoon Dry Mustard Powder
In medium mixing bowl combine 2/3 of onion soup mix, ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper, and milk.
Form into 6 oval patties.
In large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties, about 4 -6 minutes per side.
When you flip the patties over to the second side, add sliced onions; stir onions around occasionally while browning second side.
In measuring cup combine ketchup, water; whisk in flour, remaining onion soup mix and dry mustard powder.
Pour over patties in skillet and bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
