Home Made Salisbury Steaks

I have to tell you that the smell in our kitchen is driving me crazy. It is wonderful and so inviting I am sorry we have to wait for dinner. If you wish to drive the neighborhood nuts, this is the one recipe to use.

  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/2 pkg. Golden Grill Hash browns (from Costco and a key ingredient here)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 16 oz. lean ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 thinly sliced medium sized onion
  • 8 oz. white mushrooms, trimmed and sliced thin
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 2 tsp. tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp. Shiraz red wine

Whisk the cream, egg and hash browns together in a large bowl. Add the beef, 1/2 tsp. pepper and salt and, with wet hands, knead until well combined. Shape into 4 1/2 inch thick oval patties and lightly tap down.

Melt the butter in a 10 inch skillet over a medium heat. Cook the patties until well browned, 3-5 minutes per side and transfer to a plate.

Return the now empty skillet to a medium heat and add the onion and remaining 1 tbsp. butter, cooking until browned about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and pinch of salt and cook until the liquid has evaporated, about 7 minutes.

Stir in the flour and tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the broth and Shiraz wine and bring to a simmer. return the patties to the skillet, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for a further 8-10 minutes. Flip the patties halfway through the cooking time.

Transfer to a plate, continue to simmer the sauce until slightly thickened. Pour over the steaks and serve.

Serve with a glass of slightly chilled glass of Shiraz, adding a cold green salad, mashed potatoes and vegetables.
