  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups low sodium beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons worstershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves minced

  5. Add the beef stock, worstershire sauce, flour, oregano and garlic and bring to boil, mixing well with a whisk to combine flour.  Cook at a boil for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add the tomato paste, mustard powder and vinegar and combine will.  Reduce heat to medium.
  7. Add the browned meat patties back to the pan and cover.
  8. Cook for 15-20 minutes until meat reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Oh my goodness! This looks so delicious! My mouth is watering as I imagine how good they’d taste!!

  2. Thank you so much for this recipe! I searched on Pinterest for awhile today for Salisbury Steak recipes before I decided on yours. I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn’t use the green peppers because I didn’t have any. It was so delicious! My husband devoured it and wanted to stuff himself with a 3rd piece. I convinced him to save the leftovers for our lunch tomorrow. I served it with mashed potatoes. I will be making this again. Thank you again!
