Salisbury steak is a classic American dish that was invented by Dr. J. H Salisbury around 1897. It is a very easy and delicious meal usually consisting of ground meat patties and gravy. Many varieties have been created over the years and this French Onion Salisbury Steak intrigued me right away. The boys loved it very much, even the little man couldn’t get enough!
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup fresh minced parsley (I used both fresh and dry since I didn’t have enough)
1/2 cup minced onion
2 medium garlic cloves (grated or finely minced)
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour for coating
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs olive oil
2 cups of sliced onion (Vidalia for milder sweeter flavor or yellow onion for bolder taste)
1 tsp sugar
1 large clove of garlic
1 tbs tomato paste
1 tbs flour
2 cups beef stock
1/4 cup red wine
dry thyme (about 1/2 tsp)
1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for steak and mix very well.
2. Place the flour into a deep dish. Separate the ground beef mixture into four even balls. Flatten the balls of meat into patties and lightly coat with flour
3. Preheat the olive oil in the large skillet. Place the patties in the skillet and saute for 3 minutes on each side.
4. Take the patties out and set aside.
5. Add the onions and sugar to the skillet (do not discard the drippings) and saute for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
6. Stir in the garlic and tomato paste, saute for about 1 minute.
7. Sprinkle the mixture with flour and mix well, cook for about a minute
8. Slowly add the red wine, stir well. Add the beef stock slowly stirring the whole time.
9. Add the salt and thyme.
10. Bring the meat back into the skillet. Bring to boil and then lower the heat to medium low. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes flipping the patties half way through.
