It was then decided in my mind that I was going to make my version of the food that was now ingrained in my mind. I remember making this dish a long time ago using Rachel Ray's recipe but I wanted to try something different. Okay, I have to admit, she has been annoying me lately so whose recipe do I follow? It was none other than Martha Stewart, another person who annoys the hell out of me. Anyway, the need to make the steak was much stronger than my personal issues so I went ahead and used her recipe. Let me just say it now, it was delicious.
Salisbury Steak - Adapted*
2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup panko or white bread crumbs
1/2 cup while milk
1 large onion, grated
1 cup Shitake mushrooms, diced
2 cups beef broth
1 large egg
2 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp corn starch + extra for dusting
salt and pepper
1. In a large bowl, combine the meat, half of the onions, bread crumbs, egg,
milk, parsley and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Combine well and divide into 10 patties. Set aside.
2. In a large pan over medium heat, add enough vegetable oil to fry the
patties. Dip each patty into the extra corn starch and tap off the excess.
Fry in the vegetable oil for about 5 minutes or until browned. Turn with a
spatula and cook for another 3 minutes or until browned. Fry all the
patties and set them aside.
3. In the same pan used to fry the patties, saute the onions and mushrooms
and cook for about 5 minutes or until slightly caramelized. Add the beef
broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to low and bring to
4. Dissolve the teaspoon of cornstarch in 1/4 cup water and add to the sauce.
Season with a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce.
5. Return the cooked patties into the gravy and cook until just heated
through. Serve immediately with mashed potatoes or steamed rice.
