Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy




I would tell you that the mushroom party is over and this will conclude my mushroom posts, but that would be lying, and I love you all too much to do that to you.



A few days ago, Shelby from Grumpy's Honey Bunch wrote about how she's been inspired by other bloggers. Well, Shelby had inspired me with this Salisbury Steak from Cooking Light's December edition. I've eaten quite a few salisbury steaks in my day, but when I say Salisbury steak, what I mean are those gelatinous disks that come in low calorie frozen meals, usually served with a side of mac and cheese and an antacid. Turns out the homemade version is much better, who knew! And it's low calorie to boot.

This is one of those meals that yielded no leftovers because it's so dang good. The flavors are so rich and full of the familiar comforts of home. My kids snarfed it down, which guarantees that it will be made again!



Check it out here. Thanks Shelby!

I have a special place in my heart for salisbury steak. It's one of those retro dinners, like meatloaf, that always appeals to me! Yours looks stunning with that pile of mashies :)

Julie said...

They always served some weird mystery meat at school and called it salisbury steak, so I never thought I liked it. But, this looks delightful!

I just watched an episode of 30 Minute Meals yesterday and Rachel was doing this same dish..well almost. She did her gravy with onions instead of mushrooms. I love your version better and I know my husband would too since he is a huge fan of mushrooms. YUMM-O
