A few weeks ago David and I were chatting about the kind of food we ate growing up. I shared the fact that on occasion we had TV dinners. After the initial shock, David asked what my favorites had been. I was a big fan of Salisbury Steak, well not so much the steak as the chocolate cake that came with it. With hesitation he then asked, "What is Salisbury Steak"? When I saw this recipe in the most recent Cooking Light magazine I couldn't resist. Turns out that this Salisbury Steak even without the chocolate cake as incentive can be pretty good.
adapted (barely) from Cooking Light
1/3 cup grated onion, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground sirloin
1 tablespoon butter
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, quartered
1/3 cup dry red wine
1 1/4 cups fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
Combine 1/4 cup onion, pepper, salt, garlic, and beef. Shape into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove patties from pan.
Melt butter in pan. Add mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Stir in wine and remaining onion; cook 2 minutes. Combine broth and flour; add to pan, and bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until thick. Add patties and vinegar to pan; cook 2 minutes.
