Salisbury Steaks

From the Cooking for your Family board on Babycenter:

Salisbury Steak
Katie (Katiedid) from Taste of Home 2007

2 eggs
1/2 c milk
1/2 c dry bread crumbs
2 envelopes brown gravy mix, divided
2 tsp dried minced onion
1 lb lean ground beef
1 c water
2 T prepared mustard

In a bowl, whisk the eggs and milk. Add bread crumbs, 2 T gravy mix and onion. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into six patties about 3/4 in. thick. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160. Place remaining gravy mix in a small saucepan; stir in the water and mustard. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. Serve the gravy over the beef patties.

These were very delicious!

Spaghetti Sauce


This sauce turned out great. I think I will make my own spaghetti sauce from now on. I left out the mushrooms.


* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1/4 cup chopped onion
* 2 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes
* 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
* 1 tablespoon dried basil
* 1 tablespoon garlic powder
* 1 tablespoon dried oregano
* 1 (4.5 ounce) can mushrooms, drained


1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook ground beef with onion until brown; drain. Stir tomatoes, tomato paste, basil, garlic powder, oregano and mushrooms into beef mixture. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer one hour. Serve over hot pasta.
