Salisburg Steak with Cheese Toasts

My friend Renee actually brought me a food magazine that I had never seen before!  I didn’t think that was possible!  It is called Cuisine at Home and I really like it – and no ads!  One recipe that caught my eye was the French Onion Salisbury Steak – and you all know how I hate onions, so I subbed in mushrooms.  While I don’t like to actually eat a mushroom, I love the flavor it gives the gravy!

Before I get onto the recipe, I came home to find this:

Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy on Cheese Toasts:

For the Steak

  • 1.25 pounds ground chuck
  • 1/4 cup minced Italian parsley
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the Sauce

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water

For the Cheese Toasts

  • 4 slices italian bread (each was 1.25 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon softened butter mixed with 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, pinch of paprika
  • 1 ounce shredded swiss cheese

Mix together the steak ingredients and dip each steak into 1 tablespoon of flour in medium high pan for 3 minutes each side until each side has a nice crust – remove to another plate.

Add mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Add second tablespoon of flour and cook for 1 minute.  Add broth, wine, salt and thyme leaves and steaks and cook until reduced about 10 minutes.  My gravy was still a bit thin, so I added corn starch to thicken it up – it worked great.
