My boyfriend loves the frozen Salisbury steaks and I find them disgusting. I read the ingredients and all I saw was water, salt, salt, MSG, preservatives, and salt lol. So I found a tasty recipe for my trusty crock pot and they looked so good (I couldn’t sample since I am not allowed to have ground beef).
2 pounds ground beef
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tablesppons vegetable oil
2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 packet dry au jus mix
In a large bowl mix the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and milk then form into patties, should make 8. Heat oil in a large pan then dredge the patties in the flour to lightly coat them then place them into the pan to brown both sides.
Place patties in a crock pot and stack them like a pyramid.
Mix cream of chicken soup, au jus mix, and water then pour over the patties in the crock pot.
Cook low for four or five hours until ground beef is well done! They cooked up very nicely and my boyfriend said they were so tasty, flavorful and said he liked them better then the frozen ones!
#1 The store I went to didn’t have au jus mix so I used the slow cooker french dip mix and it worked out well.
#2 I would recommend using 93% or higher ground beef if you don’t like a lot of fat. I used 85/15% and the sauce had quite a bit of fat so I had to keep mixing it or the fat would separate.
#3 You can use any ground meat you want. I cant have red meat (doesn’t agree with my system) so I made myself a ground turkey patty (it’s the pale patty in the photo). It tasted wonderful!
I love this recipe and can’t wait to make it again!
