When we think comfort food, we always think meat and potatoes. Other than ice cream and apple pie, we can’t think of a more classic combination of foods that makes everyone feel satisfied. Cooking up comfort foods during the week is super easy to do. Simple ingredients can be whipped up for a weeknight meal that brings everyone to the table to enjoy some good food and quality time. One of our favorites to serve is this super easy Salisbury steak skillet. It’s savory, hearty, and just about as delicious as comfort food can get. Check out how we do it.
1 ½ pound ground beef
½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon onion flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 yellow onion, halved and sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups beef stock
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, onion flakes, garlic powder, salt and pepper together in an large bowl. Mix until well combined. Evenly divide beef into 4 servings. Gently roll each into a ball and press down slightly to flatten into a thick patty.
Add cooking oil to a large ovenproof skillet on medium-high. Brown patties in skillet on both sides then remove and set aside on a platter.
In the same skillet, reduce heat to medium and add butter, onions, and mushrooms. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sauté for 3-5 minutes or until mushrooms are softened and onions are tender.
Add flour and stir for 2 minutes, or until flour has created a roux. Add beef stock and stir to loosen up any bits of flavor in the skillet. Bring mixture up to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and add beef patties back into the skillet, spreading evenly around the pan. Place skillet into preheated oven to cook for 25-30 minutes, or until patties are cooked through.
Serve each patty topped with mushroom and onion gravy. Enjoy!
