Salisbury Steak is not seen on menus very often, though it used to be available at nearly every restaurant. These mini individual meatloaf Salisbury Steaks are delicious. They are easy to make and can be on your table in less than a half an hour. I like to serve these with mashed potatoes and corn. This is one of our comfort foods.
Give it a try.
- 1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed French onion soup
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
- In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup condensed French onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper. Shape into 6 oval patties.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. Pour off excess fat.
- In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder. Pour over meat in skillet. Cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
This is a great appetizer to serve at your next get-together. This recipe for Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps is very versatile. Use beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp and spice it just how you like it. I like a pretty heavy hit of spice, but you don't need to make this as a spicy dish.
I like to serve this appetizer when we have an informal get-together because it allows guests to "make their own" appetizer.
- 1 pound of ground beef (or chicken or chopped shrimp)
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 1 large carrot, chopped
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 1 can chopped water chestnuts
- 1 tablespoon Thai red curry paste
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon Chinese mustard
- Crushed red pepper, to taste
- zest & juice of one lime
- handful of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
- Saute the onions in a little bit of olive oil, just until they begin to soften. Add the meat and brown, breaking it up as it cooks.
- Add the curry paste & ginger to the pan and stir until it's melted & incorporated into the meat. Add the soy & oyster sauce, stir to combine.
- Turn off the heat and add the lime zest, lime juice, and parsley. Taste for seasoning. Add more curry paste if you'd like it a bit spicier or more lime or more ginger or whatever you think it needs…but you should be able to taste each of the components: spicy, sour, sweet, salty.
- Add fresh cilantro
- Serve on iceberg or Boston bibb lettuce leaves.
Ginger Beef is one of my favorite Chinese dishes. I just love ginger but often find that it is used very sparingly. Some people find ginger spicy or hot. I don't. If think ginger has a delightfully fresh – almost citrus-like flavor. I finally found a recipe that doesn't skimp on the ginger.
This recipe for Ginger Beef really plays up the ginger. If you only like a bit of ginger, this recipe is probably not for you…but if you do like ginger, you've got to try this one! Feel free to substitute pork or chicken for the beef.
