DID YOU KNOW?
Salisbury Steak was named for the man who “invented” the dish in the 19th century, and it has been served at diners, often as the “Blue Plate Special”, ever since. It became extremely popular in the 1950’s when it was the centerpiece of the newly popular frozen TV dinners, which is where most people have first tasted it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
In a medium bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, soup mix and spices and stir to combine. Crumble the ground beef and add to the bowl, then use your hands to knead the mixture together to completely incorporate all of the ingredients. Divide the mixture into four equal sized balls and form each ball into an oval about inch thick. Lay the ovals on the baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. If they are not as brown as you would like, broil for 2 3 minutes.
While meat is baking, melt butter in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat and toss in the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently for about 3 minutes. The mushrooms will absorb the butter and then release their natural juices as they brown lightly. Sprinkle with the flour and toss over heat for 1 minute. Add the broth and stir until the mixture begins to thicken, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Place meat ovals on a serving plate and spoon some of the sauce over each one. You should have enough of this sauce to use as a gravy over mashed potatoes which make a perfect side for this dish.
