Mushroom Salisbury Steak

Here is one of our most favorite dishes.  It's so easy, especially if you freeze up the patties when you buy the hamburger.  I usually take 10-15 pounds of hamburger and mix up with my favorite meatball mix(actually not the recipe below) and make meatballs, salisbury steak, and meatloaf.  Then I freeze the meatballs and salisbury steaks indiviually and pop into a freezer bag.  Then when I want them for supper, I can pull out as many as we need that night.  Use your own meatball or loaf recipe if you have a favorite, I just put this one in because it came with the recipe and it's good.  It's for anyone who doesn't have their own favorite recipe.  I posted my favorite one here.  I got this recipe from Quick Cooking years ago and have adapted it to suit our family better and to make it more economical.

Mushroom Salisbury Steak

Meat Mix:

1 egg, beaten
½ c. soft bread crumbs                               1 med. Onion, finely chopped
½-1 t. seasoned salt                                    ¼ t. pepper
1 ½ lbs. ground beef                                 

In bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, onion, seasoned salt and pepper.  Add beef and mix well.  Shape into six oval patties, place in a shallow 1 ½ qt. microwave safe dish. 

Gravy Mix:

1/2 c. cornstarch                                        2 cans (10 ½ oz. each) beef broth

1 t. dried basil                                           

In a bowl, combine cornstarch and broth until smooth.  Stir in mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce and basil; set aside.   Cover dish with patties and microwave on high for 6 min., drain.  Turn patties, moving the ones in the center to the outside of dish.  Pour broth mixture over patties.  Cover and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.  Let stand for 5 min.  Serve with hot mashed potatoes.
