Tonight I delved into my recipe box in search of something I never made before and came up with this decadent solution: stuffed Salisbury steak. Interested? Here's what you need and what you do with it:
(I halved it because it was just for the bf and I)
2 lbs ground beef
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 2.8-oz cans French fried onions
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
4 oz cheddar cheese cut into 6 sticks (about 2 x 1/2 x 1/2 in) (I opted for the ever-popular Helluva Good Cheese)
For mushroom topping:
2 tbs butter
1 12-oz package mushrooms
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
Combine beef, Worcestershire sauce, 1 can of the French fried onion rings, garlic salt, and pepper in medium bowl. Divide meat evenly into 6 portions. Place 1 stick cheese in center of each portion, shaping eat into ovals around cheese. Place steaks on grid and grill over medium-high coals 15 minutes or until meat thermometer reaches 160 degree F, turning once. (I put them in a Pyrex dish in the oven at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes.) For mushroom sauce, melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat. Add mushrooms. Cook until browned, stirring often. Add Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
As pictured here, I served mine with roasted red potatoes gently seasoned with parsley, thyme, garlic powder, and Jane's Mixed-up Crazy Salt, and green beans. I know the picture isn't exactly a spread from Gourmet, but the steaks were delicious. I kind of felt like I was eating a well-seasoned inside-out cheeseburger.
