Salisbury Steak - A fun throwback


I can remember eating this as a kid when it was my Dad’s night to cook for my sister and myself. It was usually in the form of a TV dinner and it would be accompanied by either white rice or mashed potatoes. I saw this on Skinny Food by Amy and I tried this out because I thought it sounded like a comfort food type of meal. It turned out good, we all enjoyed it. It was also very quick to make (3 steps!!) and that’s perfect on days that I have to whip up something after a day of work. Give it a try, it’s so vintage…

Skinny food by Amy


•1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed French onion soup
•1 1/2 pounds ground beef
•1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
•1 egg
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
•1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
•1/4 cup ketchup
•1/4 cup water
•1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
•1/2 teaspoon mustard powder


1. In a large bowl, mix together 1/3 cup condensed French onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, salt and black pepper. Shape into 6 oval patties.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties. Pour off excess fat.

2. In a small bowl, blend flour and remaining soup until smooth. Mix in ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder. Pour over meat in skillet. Cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.


  1. I'm glad it turned out well for you!

  2. I remember those tv dinners. The best part was the brownie! lol
