Easy Salisbury "Steak"

It's cold outside so why not cook? Here's an easy and yummy alternative to meat loaf.

Easy Salisbury "Steak"

1 ½ - 2 pounds lean ground beef
1 can condensed french onion soup (divided)
1 egg
¾ C. breadcrumbs or cracker crumbs
salt and pepper

For sauce:
2/3 can condensed french onion soup
½ C. Ketchup
2 Tbs. prepared mustard
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs. flour mixed with ¼ C. water

To make:
Mix ground beef with 1/3 can of the condensed french onion soup, bread or cracker crumbs, egg, and salt and pepper to taste. Form into oval shaped patties (about the size of your hand) and brown in a deep skillet over medium heat. While the patties are browning mix all sauce ingredients together.

Once Salisbury "steaks" are done, poor sauce over them and reduce heat to low. Simmer covered over low heat 35-45 minutes until sauce is thickend and patties are cooked through. You can also place the "steaks" into a pyrex baking dish, add sauce, cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour if you like. Serve just with sauce or a little sprinkle of cheese or some sauteed onions are nice! Enjoy!
