Well, I am pleased to announce a new recipe has been added to our lineup! I have been wanting to try this for quite some, because this is one of hubby’s faves. He was a bit leery, but he was happily surprised!

You can also find the recipe for Scrumptious Salisbury Steak and Gravy  over at Allrecipes! I did double the gravy and tripled the chop meat. This served our family with NO leftovers!

This is the measurements/ tweaks that I did.

3lbs ground beef                                           1 small (4oz) can sliced mushrooms *drained*

3 eggs                                                              5 tbl butter

12 ritz crackers, crushed                            6 tbl flour

1tsp onion pwd, salt/pepper                    4 cups milk

1 cup boiling water                                   6 beef bouillon cubes

Mix beef, eggs, cracker crumbs & spices. form into longer patties around 1″ thick. I made six patties out of 3 lbs.

Fry over med/high heat 4 minutes each side. Place in 300 degree oven when done to keep warm

Drain oil and then melt butter in pan. Add mushrooms and cook on medium for 2-3 minutes.

Sprinkle flour and mix well. Slowly add milk & broth, stirring frequently, until gravy become thicker and smooth.

I cooked the gravy for about ten minutes. Add steaks to gravy and simmer on LOW for 10 minutes.

That’s it! I served with Mashed Red Bliss & Green beans!

I would like to come up with a plan that I can follow but also switch around if necessary. This week, I am not totally into it, but I feel like if I put it off much longer, I will never do it!  I also have a few new recipes for snacks I would like to try out.  I also am trying out a new dinner recipe and will report back with my family feedback. I will post recipes after I make them 🙂
