I had a craving and a box of those frozen patties that come with two sleeves of beef patties.
With eight buns per package, you end up with two leftover patties at the end. I had ten patties and no buns.
After some careful consideration as I looked through my spice cabinet, I came up with this delicious salisbury steak recipe.
I’ve now been serving it for years, and it’s always a family favorite. [Side note: if you wish to add onions or mushrooms, I recommend sautéing them before the patties]
Salisbury Steak Recipe
- 10 frozen beef patties, thawed
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 cup flour
- 3-4 cups of beef broth – to obtain desired thickness
Preheat the oven to 375*.
Thoroughly combine seasonings in a small bowl. Sprinkle a pinch of seasoning on both sides of each patty. Set remaining seasoning aside.
In large cast iron skillet — or other large skillet — pan sear patties in batches. Patties do not need to be cooked through, just browned.
Set patties aside on large platter. Whisk 1/4 cup of flour and remaining seasonings into pan drippings. Slowly whisk in broth [add mushrooms or onions if using] and simmer until thickened — ten to fifteen minutes.
Return patties to skillet, fanning around in a circle. [If your skillet is not oven proof, use a 13×9 baking dish]. Spoon gravy over patties. Bake in oven for twenty minutes.
Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles and your favorite veggies. Enjoy!
