I’m excited to share this Easy Salisbury Steak recipe with you today. It would not have happened had I not made a mistake in my shopping when we first got to Martinique. I’m so happy for my accident too because we really love this recipe.
Before I give you the recipe, let me tell you my story. We moved to Martinique in June and in my attempt to not adjust our diet too much and make us sick, I went on the hunt for things we normally buy. If you haven’t shopped in a different country than your country before, it can be a challenge when you first move to a new one. To be clear, I am not dissing the food here. It is excellent quality and there is plenty of it. It’s just adjusting our ways each time we move. It’s really great lessons.
The first time we shopped here, I noticed there was no ground beef in the fresh meat section. I was kind of bummed out because while we don’t eat a lot of ground beef, we do eat some and we like a good burger every now and then.
The second time I went to the store we were having a co-worker/friend over for dinner who is from Romania. We went to the store and looked around for what we wanted to have and found hamburgers already pre-formed, in the frozen food section. We were so excited. Not only were they there, but the were on sale! Showing my ways, I stocked up. (They don’t really do that in other countries.)
On the day of the dinner, we made the hamburgers and they were not great. Our friend liked them, but we didn’t. Meat is crazy expensive here, so we ate the ones we cooked, but what was I going to do with the others? This recipe is the result of having all those burgers.
This particular recipe has a lot of onion and mushroom. I happen to love them and the people I have served this recipe to has loved them too. Even Tom, who does not like onions. I think his mom must have dropped him on his head. Poor guy. He eats with us about once a week and has no idea just how many onions he eats.
For this particular recipe I used canned sliced mushrooms because mushrooms are about $6.00 for a small container. So sad.
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 2 portions cream soup base (recipe here http://fearlesslycreativemammas.com/2013/10/parmesan-cream-cheese-chicken.html) or 2 cans or packages of Cream of Mushroom soup
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Form ground beef into oblong patties and place on a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- At end of baking period, melt the butter in a saute pan and saute onions until tender.
- Add the mushrooms to the saute pan and continue for 5 minutes.
- While the onions and mushrooms are cooking, follow instructions on cream soup base or mushroom soup and cook to thicken/warm.
- Remove meat from oven and turn over.
- Cover meat with onions and mushrooms.
- Pour soup over meat to cover.
- Return to oven and cook 30 minutes more.
- Serve with mashed potatoes or pasta.
I use my cream soup base when I make this because I always have it on hand. The non-clickable link is in the recipe, but in case you would like to make is, you can click HERE. This is a great recipe to keep on hand, you know what is in it and it’s a lot less expensive than buying pre-made soups.
