Crock Pot Salisbury Steak

 Tender ground beef patties, are slow cooked to perfection, in a luxurious mushroom gravy.




My crock pot and I always become reacquainted during the colder months of the year. Mostly because of busy days at school. Working in a school cafeteria is exhausting. From placing orders, to serving food (baking, stocking, cleaning), there is never a quiet moment at work. So when I think I'll have a super busy day, I want my old friend Crock Pot to be working on my dinner, here at home.

I like to use my crock pot to try out new recipes. I love browsing recipes on Pinterest and I have often seen recipes for crock pot salisbury steak. I knew the family would love it, since I don't serve beef often enough. So I decided to try it. Now before you start wondering why anyone would cook meat before putting it into the crock pot, just remember that you aren't fully cooking the patties, but just browning the outside, so they don't fall apart while cooking. As they finish cooking low and slow all day, in gravy, they become so tender and delicious. I am not crazy about ground beef, or salisbury steak, but I ate two of these puppies, without complaining, LOL. They just melted in your mouth and the gravy was A-MA-ZING!



Crock Pot Salisbury Steak

2 lbs lean ground beef
1 packet dry onion soup mix
1/2 C panko bread crumbs
1 egg
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 C mushrooms, chopped
1 Tbs flour
1 C milk
salt and pepper
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 C beef broth

In a large bowl, combine the beef with the onion soup mix, bread crumbs and egg. Form mixture into 8 equally sized patties.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in the olive oil. Once the oil begins to ripple, add the patties to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side; until a nice brown crust forms on the meat. Place browned patties into the crock pot, stacking alternately, like a pyramid.

Reduce heat under skillet to medium. Add the onion and mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Once onions become translucent, sprinkle mixture with flour. Stir to coat and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly add in the milk, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Let cook until thickened; about 3-4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in chicken soup and beef broth. Pour gravy mixture over patties in crock pot. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs. Serve with mashed potatoes.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
