An easy comfort food dinner is Salisbury Steak. I made this version vegetarian. I used Impossible Burger patties which cut some of the prep time. It comes together quickly. Serve it with a tossed salad, mashed potatoes and a side of steamed veggies. It’s a warm stress free meal like a big hug.
6-Impossible Burger Patties
8 ounces sliced mushrooms
1 sweet onion sliced
1 tablespoons Montreal Seasoning
2 tablespoons garlic powder
5 turns of the salt grinder (1/2 teaspoons)
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (a few shakes)
1-14 oz can vegetarian French Onion soup or vegetable broth. Better than Boullion makes a no beef vegetable Broth and a sautéed onion broth as well.
I didn’t use it this time but if the gravy looks thin, use can use 1 teaspoons of Arrowroot Powder mixed with a bit of water to thicken (you can also use a cornstarch slurry) (I only add it if the gravy seems very thin).
I brown the Pattie’s in a fry pan so they stay together when cooked. Coat the pan with cooking spray or a bit of olive oil. Brown on both sides. Add to crockpot. Add sliced onions and mushrooms, spices, Worcestershire sauce and broth. Stir. Add the Arrowroot slurry if the gravy is thin before cooking or the cornstarch slurry afterwards. Cook on high for 4 hours, low on 8 hours. Enjoy!
You can also make this with a lean or extra lean ground beef. You can also use beef broth. I like the onion flavor from the French Onion soup so I prefer it. Your choice. Follow the directions above.
