Juli's French Onion Salisbury Steak with Cheese Toast
As promised, tonight is the second recipe in our two part series from my friend Juli! Since the zucchini soup didn't have any meat in it, I decided to cook some beef to make it up to my husband! For those of you who like french onion soup this is really the same kind of idea. Toasted bread with Swiss smothered in warm onion-y soup goodness! Enjoy!
Juli's French Onion Salisbury Steak
1 1/4 lb. ground chuck (if you cannot find chuck, buy a hamburger that has more fat like an 80/20 variety, ground sirloin is also good)
a little bit of parsley
2 T. green onions, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 T. flour
1 T. oil
1 onion thinly sliced
1 tsp. sugar
1 T. garlic minced
1 T. ketchup
2 cups beef broth
1/4cup cider vinegar
Combine chuck, parsley, scallion, salt and pepper to make patties. Flour patties. Heal oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add patties and saute until brown on each side. Remove patties from pan. Add onions and sugar to pan; saute 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and ketchup, saute 1 minutes or until paste begins to brown. Stir in broth and vinegar. Return meat to pan and bring all to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. (Though the recipe says 10 minutes, I cook it longer, like 30 minutes). Serve over cheese toast.
I sliced the bread into slices and then topped each slice with butter and toppings. If you are planning on using the entire loaf you could probably just cut the loaf in half lengthwise and then top with butter and toppings. Broil Low for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. Top with beef patty and smother in onion soup!
Thanks to Juli for both of these awesome recipes! If anyone else has a recipe that would make a great blog post let me know! I will gladly make it and taste test it with my family! They are always grateful for new yummy recipes :-)
