Salisbury Steak with Brown Mushroom Gravy

As soon as the weather starts to have a cold feel to its morning air, I start to think of Salisbury Steak. Salisbury Steak is one of my fall favorites.  This recipe was created a very long time ago in the kitchen of our first tiny apartment.  Before internet even....if you can believe that...LOL..  My husband and I were newly married, very young and very poor.  Salisbury Steak was the item I ordered every time I went into a restaurant (right Alison?) so eventually trying to copy it was a given.  This is exactly how I originally made it based on what I always had in my pantry.  Don't you love items that depend on pantry staples?  Oats were very inexpensive and we always had them.  I used them in the meatloaf because that is how my hubby's mom did it, so why not the salisbury steak? Cross that with the fact that my mom loved to thicken everything with Corn Starch.  I love that it was originally created gluten free! :-D

1 pound ground beef
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Mustard Powder
1 egg
1/4 cup oat powder (I like using oats pureed, but you could sub for your choice of bread crumbs)
1/4 cup finely minced onions
1 Tablespoon L&P Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/8 Black Pepper

2 Tablespoons Oil
1 large onion, sliced
8 ounces Mushrooms, sliced
2 cups or 1 can beef broth
     (Go ahead and use water/bouillon to make broth if you need to)
1/2 teaspoon Mustard Powder
1 pinch Cayenne
2 T Corn Starch w/ 2 T cold water (combined well)
2 teaspoons La Choy Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon L&P Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet Brown Gravy Seasoning
1 cube Herb Ox Beef bouillon

  • Add all patty ingredients and mix well. 
  • Form into 5 or 6 oval shaped patties. 
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oil to pan and brown patties on each side. 
  • Remove from pan and add onion and mushrooms. 
  • Cook until onions are translucent and mushrooms give some moisture. 
  • Add patties back to the pan and add remaining sauce ingredients 
  • Cook for 7 to 10 minutes on low, until patties are heated through and sauce is thickened.
