Salisbury Steak Recipe

Salisbury Steak

Prep Time 10min Cook Time 45min

The perfect comfort food, this one is made thicker than most and is so moist you'll want more than seconds. Cut the onions to your liking, my kids will only eat finely chopped. If you have onion-haters all around, try onion powder for flavor.
