Salsbury Steaks


 Alton Brown's Everyday cookbook is really fun.  Confession, I am not an Alton Brown fan. My cousin raves but I find that I don't care for the way his cookbooks are organized. All over the place like. But the Everyday cookbook is clean cut and wonderful.

We make Salsbury steaks a lot with brown gravy mix, plain burgers, and caramelized onions. This recipe takes our simple dish up to a new level of flavor.

Salsbury Steaks
Ingredients:
1 lb ground sirloin
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tea salt
2 Tb nonfat dry milk powder
1 medium onion, sliced thin
2 garlic cloves
1 pint mushrooms, sliced thin
1/3 cup red wine 
2/3 cup low fat milk
1 beef ramen flavor packet

Directions:
Whisk flour and milk powder in bowl. Divide beef into 4 patties and salt then dunk in flour mix. Set on a wire rack at room temp. Mix milk, red wine, and beef flavor packet in a separate bowl. Set aside.

Saute onion in butter until brown. Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook until mushrooms reduce by half. Remove to a plate and add 1 Tb butter to pan. Cook patties 4 min on first side. Flip the patties and cook for 2 minutes. Add everything back to pan. Simmer 10 minutes to thicken sauce.
