Salisbury Steaks with Homemade Brown Gravy


This is a meal we had a lot growing up.  I loved it as a kid and now I love it as an adult because my kids will eat it too!  It's quick and hearty and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand.  We always called them juicy hamburgers growing up but I've since learned they are also called Salisbury steaks. You can call them whichever you prefer- I suppose more people will know what you're talking about if you call them the latter though. ;) Give them a try!

Salisbury Steaks (makes 8)
2.5 lbs. ground beef
2 T. Worcestshire sauce
2 tsp. seasoned salt
pepper to taste
1 recipe brown gravy (below)
parsley (for garnish)

Combine ground beef with 2 T. worcestshire, seasoned salt and pepper.  Form into 8 patties and place inside a large skillet.  Cook beef until no longer pink but still tender.  While patties are cooking begin making gravy. When patties are done cooking, pour gravy over patties and continue to cook until gravy is thickened.

Brown Gravy
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
4 cups beef broth or stock
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp. dijon mustard
1 T. Worcesteshire

To make gravy- In a medium saucepan melt butter. Add flour and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter/flour mixture is golden brown. Add garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute or until fragrant. Whisk in remaining ingredients until well combined.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally (making sure to scrape bottoms and sides of pan). If adding to cooked salisbury steaks go ahead and pour gravy over top of them now, otherwise leave gravy in saucepan. Whether in the skillet or saucepan- Simmer for 15 min, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced and thickened.
