This recipe is comfort food at it's finest.
And I'm gonna tell you how I came across it :)
Back in January, the fam and I took a day trip
to Roswell, New Mexico.
It was recommended by a few spouses that I knew
so we jumped in our mini van and headed
for a visit.
Why is Roswell, NM so popular?
In 1947, a UFO incident "supposedly"
occurred 75 miles away in the near by town of Corona.
The investigation and debris were handled by Roswell Army
Air Field officials. This, in turn, put Roswell on the map.
I think it is safe to say that the whole town is UFO & alien crazy!
There were alien pictures everywhere and even the
street lights were in the shape of alien heads.
Shaped like a UFO!
The kids had fun playing in it though :)
We toured the UFO museum….
which was interesting….
but a little bit fah-reaky!
We also ran into Mulder and Skully….
(hubby and I are huge fans of the X-Files)
Even though the town of Roswell is a little on the quirky side,
we enjoyed the trip.
This recipe came from the cookbook I purchased at the
museum's souvenir shop.
I ended up in a nice conversation with one of the
employee's and she highly recommended the
salisbury steak recipe in the book.
She said, and I quote, "You will never go back to
eating a salisbury tv dinner ever again after trying this recipe!"
She was right!
The very first time we made this, we kept
expecting aliens to pop out of the corners of the kitchen.
One awesome tidbit about this cookbook….
it was written by an Air Force wife who had traveled
the world before settling down in Roswell ;)
This recipe has been
in our favorite's file since January.
We hope it will make it to yours as well ;)
Obviously I would suggest some mashed potatoes
and a vegetable side of sorts (peas, beans, corn, etc..).
If mashed potatoes aren't your thing, try making a baked potato
or skip the potato all together and try making these awesome
(makes 4-5 steak patties)
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 medium onions, sliced
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. sugar
2 cups of water
2 packages of brown gravy mix
1 and 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Half of a can of sliced mushrooms
1. Take the ground beef and shape into 4 or 5 hamburger patties
2. Heat the 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
3. Fry meat patties in the heat, making sure each side is dark brown and the patties are no longer pink in the middle.
4. Take patties out and let them cool on a plate.
5. In the same skillet, cook the sliced onions for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Add soy sauce, sugar, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling.
7. Reduce heat to low and simmer.
8. Add the gravy mix, salt, pepper, and the mushrooms. Stir until it starts to thicken.
9. Add the brown patties.
