Hubby asking for some salisbury steak recently, and I wanted to try out something a little different. I found this gem, and it was absolutely amazballs. Mike couldn't stop raving about it for days after wards.
- extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 2 large onions sliced
- salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 pieces of stale white bread with crusts cut off
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1 1/2- 1 3/4 ground sirloin
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons grated onion
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 cup white cooking wine
- 1 cup beef stock
In a pan add some olive oil, the onions, salt and pepper, thyme and bay leaf and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes until onions become caramelized.
In a small bowl soak the bread in the milk for about 10 minutes.
In a mixing bowl combine the beef, grated onion, worcestershire sauce, egg. Squeeze the excess milk out of the bread, and add little pieces at a time to the beef mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix with hands. Form patties.
Heat up some olive oil over medium high heat, and fry the patties until they are cooked through, do in batches if you need to- don't over crowd the pan. About 5-10 minutes on each side depending on how thick they are. Once they are all cooked through remove and place on a dish.
Once the onions are caramelized, sprinkle the flour over them and cook an additional minute. Deglaze the pan you cooked the meat in with the white wine, and pour into the onions. Add the beef stock and cook a minute or two until thickened.
Serve the onion gravy over the salisbury steaks.
This is so yummy! Kid and husband approved, that's all I can ask for in a meal after all. I served this with some mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Cheers!
