Time for October Secret Recipe Club!

Secret Recipe Club

This month I received Rebekah's blog Family, Food and Fun.  Rebekah has tons love delicious baked goods on her site, but I am not much of a baker and generally prefer a savory dish. I came across a recipe for French Onion Salisbury Steak and thought it sounded like a delicious perfect weeknight meal. The recipe is very easy to put together and captures the rich savory flavors of french onion soup. My phone is not the best, but do not let it fool you- this meal is wonderful. Thank you Rebekah for a delicious new recipe! 


French Onion Salisbury Steak:

1 1/2 lbs ground beef 

1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs (I used homemade whole wheat)
1 egg
1/4 cup fresh parsley,  minced
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 Tbl all-purpose flour
2 Tbl olive oil
2 cups onions, sliced
1 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbl ketchup
1 tsp flour
2 cups beef stock 
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves

Cheese Toasts:
4 slices French bread or baguette, cut diagonally (1/2″ thick)
2 tablespoon butter, softened
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Pinch of paprika
1/4 cup grated Swiss cheese 
1 Tbl grated Parmesan cheese


Combine meat, breadcrumbs, egg, parsley, onion powder, salt and pepper. Divide evenly into desired number of patties. Place 2 tablespoons flour in a shallow dish; dredge each patty in flour.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and saute 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove from pan.

Add onions and sugar to pan; saute 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and ketchup; saute 1 minute, or until paste begins to brown. Sprinkle onions with reserved flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in stock then add the salt and thyme.

Return meat to pan and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.

Serve steaks on Cheese Toasts with onion soup ladled over. 

For the Cheese Toasts

Preheat oven to 400º F.

Place bread on baking sheet.

Combine butter, garlic and paprika and spread on one side of each slice of bread. Combine cheeses and sprinkle evenly over butter. Bake until bread is crisp and cheese is bubbly, 10-15 minutes.
