I had never made or tried Salisbury Steak before, but I always thought it sounded interesting. The night I decided to finally make this, Chris came home from work and immediately guessed what it was. But he said he had never had it before because it didn't sound appealing to him. Great.
Luckily both of us were more than surprised and satisfied with the end result. The beef patties are packed with onions and Italian flavors, while the mushroom gravy had a little tang and a ton of flavor. You know those Lighter Garlic Mashed Potatoes I posted on Wednesday? Those were perfect with this. Chris' choice of egg noodles also worked extremely well and soaked up the flavorful sauce. Enjoy!
