Salisbury steak with mushroom gravy
1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound sliced button mushrooms
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 cup beef stock
Makes 4 servings.
Mix ground beef with onion, Worcestershire, salt and pepper to taste, eggs and bread crumbs. Form into 4 oval patties. Heat half the butter in a skillet over medium heat and cook the patties until nicely browned, about 6 minutes per side. Place in single layer in baking dish.
Saute mushrooms in remaining butter until nicely browned, about 5 minutes on medium-high heat. Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms, and very gradually add the stock, whisking until it is thick, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour the mushrooms and gravy over the beef patties and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
