Can you remember those Salisbury Steaks? The kind that the school made every other Tuesday? OR, the ones that came in your TV Dinner back in the day, while watching Wheel of Fortune when Chuck Woolery was hosting.. yeah I’m that old. Well I have figured our a flavor combo that is pretty close ( dang near spot on ) although I know they didn’t make them this way, there is something in the way I make these that hits that nostalgic spot.
I didn’t do a step by step photo shoot, cause I honestly didn’t know if it would work.. well it did .. so here ya go. Forgive me .. pwease.
8-10 Walmart® Premade Frozen Hamburger Patties ( yeah I know, but they have that texture you are looking for, and they are actually very very good)
4 Cups Beef Broth
2 1/2 tablespoons corn starch ( mixed with about 1/2 cup water to make a slurry )
1 heaping tablespoon of Tones® Beef Base
1 Cup green onion tops
1 tsp. Badia® Complete
Fire up your grill ( yup the grill ) and put on the patties. In the kitchen in a large skillet add the broth, base and seasoning. On med-high heat bring to a boil ( oh, go turn your patties, hurry they’ll burn… just kidding, you got this) add the slurry and stir well until it thickens. Then transfer it to a crockpot and turn it on low. Remove patties from the grill before they are completely done. Add them to your crockpot. Keep on low for about 30-50 minutes, then add the onion tops and keep on warm for up to an hour, maybe two. Its okay, I promise. Then serve over rice, with mashed potatoes or on bread as an open faced sammich!
The taste? Well… its pretty darn good!
A happy little crockpot!
