A lightened up classic

I’ll begin this by saying that I’ve never made salisbury steak before.  And the last time I ate it?  YEARS ago.  Many, many years ago.

Of course, it sounded SO delicious when I recently read something about it, you know – since I’m on Weight Watchers and it seems like one of those “taboo” dishes.  So I headed over to their site to see if I could find a recipe.

Oh boy, did I find a recipe.  This was REALLY good!  No sacrifice in taste at all.  The gravy is perfect to spoon over a baked potato, which is great because then you don’t have to use points on butter or sour cream.  Even if you aren’t dieting, try this soon!

Salisbury Steaks with Mushroom Gravy
from Weight Watchers

1/3 cup onion, diced, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
1 pound ground beef 
1 tablespoon butter 
8 ounces mushrooms, quartered
1/3 cup dry red wine 
1 1/4 cups fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
1 tablespoon AP flour 
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

Combine 1/4 cup onion, pepper, salt, garlic and beef.  Shape mixture into 4 (1/2 inch thick) patties.  

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.  Coat with cooking spray.  Add patties and cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until browned.  Remove patties.

Melt butter in pan. Add mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes. Stir in wine and remaining onion, and cook for about 2 minutes.

Combine broth and flour.  Add to pan and bring to a boil.  Cook for about 5 minutes or until thick.  Add patties and vinegar to pan, and cook for around 2 minutes.  Serve.
