If you’re short on time and looking for a meal that screams comfort food, look no further! This Salisbury steak was prepped, cooked, and on the plate in under a half an hour. It may not be the healthiest thing in the world, but sometimes we need to indulge our inner child!
Dan and I enjoyed this meal while watching Heavyweights. Remember that movie! I truly felt like I had time traveled back to the 90’s! It was a great, relaxing way to end our Labor Day weekend.
I started by combining a pound of ground beef, half a box of Stove Top Stuffing, 1 egg, 1 cup water, half a diced onion, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, and some pepper and garlic
I then carefully formed the mixture into four patties. It didn’t stick together as well as I would have liked it to, so I may suggest adding an extra egg.
I sauteed the patties in 1 Tablespoon of olive oil for about 5 minutes, and then flipped. I allowed them to cook for another 5 minutes, and then stirred in a jar of beef gravy.
Meanwhile, I cooked up some instant mashed potatoes. I know, not clean or healthy at all, but super convenient!
Once the steaks were fully cooked, I plated them, with the mashed potatoes, and poured the gravy over all of it. I then topped everything with some chopped fresh parsley, and voila! Great comfort food ready and on the table in under a half an hour! If you’re looking for a cheat meal that is fast, delicious, and nostalgic, this is it!
