Notes

Four ways to keep your meatballs round!

  • Refrigerate – after rolling the meatballs store covered in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to 24 hours.
  • Freeze – Place the meatballs on a cookie covered with parchment paper.  They can be close together but not touching. Place them in the freezer until frozen.  You can cook from frozen or transfer to freezer bags. They are good for up to three months.
  • Bake – Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.  This method works fairly well because the meatballs are not turned like on the stove top.
  • Simmer in liquid – drop into simmering broth until they are partially cooked.  When they float remove them to paper towels and then brown in a skillet or in the oven.

  • 1 each egg
  • 1/3 cup onions, chopped
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp parsley

  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 2 cups onion
  • 1 tsp garlic,minced
  • 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions
 

For the Salisbury Steaks

  • Heat a large frying skillet over medium high heat and cook each patty for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Once cooked on both sides, remove from the plan and place on a side plate.

For the Mushroom Onion Gravy

  • Reduce heat to medium, add onions and garlic to the pan along with the steak drippings. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and continue cooking for a few more minutes.
  • Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms and onions, stir and cook for another minute or so.
  • Next, add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Stir for a few minutes and place the Salisbury steaks back into the pan and cover with the gravy mixture.
  • Cover the pan and cook for about 2-30 minutes gents stirring occasionally. The gravy will also ticket up as it cools so make sure not to cook too long or your gravy will be too thick. If that happens, just add a little more beef broth to thin out.
