Salisbury Steak With Onion Sauce
|Yellow onion||1 Large, peeled, finely chopped|
|Lean ground beef||1 1⁄2 Pound|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm), peeled and minced|
|Chopped chives/Freeze dried chives||1 Tablespoon|
|Chopped parsley||1 Tablespoon|
|Dried thyme||1⁄4 Teaspoon, crumbled|
|Black pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|All purpose flour||2 Tablespoon|
|Beef broth||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
1. Place 2 tablespoons of the butter, the water, and all but 2 tablespoons of the onion in a heavy 10-inch skillet over moderately low heat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent browning.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the beef, garlic, chives, parsley, thyme, salt, pepper, and the reserved 2 tablespoons of onion. Shape the mixture into 6 patties about 1 inch thick.
3. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a heavy 12-inch skillet over moderate heat until bubbly. Add the patties and cook about 4 minutes on each side for medium. Remove the patties to a warm platter and set aside.
4. To make the sauce, stir the flour into the cooked onion in the 10-inch skillet and cook for 1 minute over moderately high heat. Add the beef broth and boil for 4 minutes, stirring, until the sauce has thickened. Place the patties in the skillet to reheat briefly, and spoon the sauce over them. Serve with Glorious Mashed Potatoes.
