Salisbury Steak

Before I tell you about a dinner recipe that my husband would never refuse, I do want to make an announcement about my commenting system. It's been updated, and I'm afraid I lost past comments, but thank you so much for them. I love hearing from you!
Now onto dinner.

This Salisbury steak recipe is delectable with either ground turkey or ground beef. It's the caramelized onions that really give this recipe a classy flavor.
Also, if you use milk-free crackers, this recipe has no milk in it.


1 large yellow onion, caramelized*
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 white mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/2 pound lean ground turkey or beef
1/4 teaspoon beef bouillon powder
6 crushed crackers (Ritz or Saltine)
1/4 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
1 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 

* I found a great trick off The Kitchn: Make caramelized onions in the slow cooker in bulk and then freeze them! I just filled up my slow cooker more than halfway with peeled, chopped onion, stirred in 1/4 cup olive oil, and let it cook on low for 10 hours. It was so easy, though it takes planning in advance.
I have also cooked onions on the stove for 1-2 hours over low with minimal watching, or I have opened a can of condensed French Onion Soup and used the onions from there. There's no shame in taking shortcuts.


1) Heat a large frying pan over low heat, and add olive oil and mushrooms. Cook until browned, flipping once, 15-20 minutes.
2) In a mixing bowl, stir together 1/3 of the cooked onions, the ground turkey, beef bouillon powder, crushed crackers, and pepper. Form into 3 patties.
3) Heat a large frying to medium heat. Cook the patties for 2 minutes on each side until the outside is browned but the inside is not done yet.
4) In a medium bowl whisk together beef broth, flour, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over browned patties. Bring to a boil, and stir the sauce. Then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes until browned all the way through and tender. Add mushrooms and remaining onions, heat another minute, and serve.

This serves 3 and it makes plenty of sauce to put over mashed potatoes too!
