Farmer's Salisbury Steak
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 tbsp heavy cream or whole milk
- 2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 crumbled beef bouillon cube
- 4 dashes of Worcestershire
- 1 tbps ketchup
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/2 onion thinly sliced
- 2 1/4 cup beef broth
- 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp ketchup
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- Salt and pepper to taste
- First make the hamburger steaks. Combine the beef, breadcrumbs, heavy cream, mustard, bouillon, Worcestershire, ketchup, salt and pepper in a bowl.
- Knead everything until it’s evenly combined. Form into 6 oblong patties. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil and butter. Fry the patties on both sides until nice and crusty on the outside and not pink in the middle. Place on plate and set aside.
- Time to make the gravy, add the onion to the pan. Salute the onion for several minutes, until golden brown. Add 2 cups of the beef broth, Worcestershire and ketchup.
- Stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. The liquid will reduce. Make a slurry by mixing together the cornstarch and remaining 1/4 cup beef broth. Pour the slurry into the gravy. Stir and let bubble up and thicken for 4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Add the hamburger steaks back into the sauce. Nestle the steaks into the gravy. Spoon some of the gravy over the top of the steaks and simmer for couple minutes.
