Salisbury Steak Patties

Salisbury Steak Patties

Salisbury Steak Patties

½ lb. pork sausage

2 lbs. hamburger

1 ½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

2 eggs

1 cup minute rice

2 ½ cups water

1 package onion soup mix

Thickener

½ cup water

3 tablespoons flour

Mix together first 6 ingredients form into patties. Brown in hot skillet. Remove patties after browned. In the skillet add 2 ½ cups of water and add soup mix to that, simmer 10 minutes. Make a thickener with ½ c. water with 3 tablespoons flour. I place the thickener in a jar and shake it up and add it to the soup mixer. Place hamburger patties back in the skillet and simmer 10 minutes on each side in a covered skillet.

♥You can substitute sausage with hamburger and I have made this with the turkey burger.

The two recipes listed are some old recipes I found that I had written down years ago. The Salisbury Steak Patties we eat often. The Sauerbraten Meat Patties I haven't made in years, but they are also very good.

Sauerbraten Meat Patties

Sauerbraten Meat Patties

Sauerbraten Meat Patties

1 ½ lbs. ground beet

1 small onion minced

1 egg

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon thyme

1 Tablespoon shortening

2 Tablespoon vinegar

2 cups water

12 whole cloves

8 Peppercorns

3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoons ketchup

6 Gingersnaps (crumbled) I crush the cookies up in my small food processor.

1 bay leaf

Mix ground beef, onion, egg, salt pepper and thyme.

Shape into six patties

Brown in Shortening

Add vinegar, water, cloves, peppercorns, bay leaf, brown sugar, ketchup to a bowl mix together pour onto patties. Place gingersnaps into small food processor crush up, add to the skillet with the patties. Cover skillet and simmer half an hour turning once. When done remove patties, add another cup of water. Cook a little mixing on medium heat, do not let burn. Pour gravy mixture into a wire food strainer and press through. I do this to make sure no one bites into peppercorns or whole cloves.

My photos below show each step I take.

I serve these with mashed potatoes they make such a good gravy. Add any kind of vegetable or salad and bread.

♥You can crush the ginger snaps whatever way works best for you I like using my small food processor.

Below is the step by step pictures of making the patties.

How To Cook Hamburger Patties On The Grill or Frying In A Pan .

2 lbs Ground Beef (80 - 85%) Very lean makes very dry patties. Ground chuck is the best.

1 teaspoon Garlic Salt

1 tablespoon of Lawry's Season Salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons water

Add a 3 tablespoons of water with your ingredients before you add them to the patties. This will keep them moist on the grill. Mix ingredients with your hands. Shape into patties. Don't overwork the mixing.

Also, sprinkle a little of the garlic salt and Lawry's season salt on the top of the hamburgers.

For pan frying, I fry in butter about 1 tablespoon. Brown on both sides do not push your patties down with the spatula while frying or grilling you will lose all of your juice from the hamburger.

Grill or frying let patties rest before cutting into them.

Cook the meat to 160 degrees F.

Other ingredients can be added to your hamburger patties for a variety.

You can add onion flakes, minced garlic or minced onions if you would like. About 3 tablespoons of each. I sometimes add a packet of onion soup mix.

Hint:

How To Make Hamburger Patties To Grill Or Fry.

If you want A perfectly formed hamburger use the lid of a large peanut butter jar. Place plastic wrap inside the lid adds your hamburger meat pat flat into lid flip out. The perfect hamburger patty.

You can use any size lid you want if you like larger hamburger.

Came back to take another look. We used to love what I called rice meatballs. Haven't made them in a while and your recipe reminded me to do it again sometime. I sometimes use mushroom soup or tomatoes for the sauce. Both ways are good. Will share again by tweeting!

voted up, useful and interesting. Those spreads looks delicious and make me hungry. Will try out this recipe as time permits. Rated 5 stars and pinned and facebook shared as well.

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on May 26, 2013:

Since ground beef is relatively inexpensive in Peru, I may have a chance to try these sometime. The sauerbraten ingredients are harder to find, but the Salisbury steaks would be quick and easy. About the hamburgers, I have a friend who presses all the juice out of her burgers so, needless to say, we never request burgers at her house! Thanks for sharing your cooking secrets. : )

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on May 26, 2013:

Your recipes sound wonderful! I have never heard of sauerbraten patties before, this will be something new for me to try. I love to make, what I call hamburger steaks. I just add a little flour, garlic salt and chopped onion to my hamburger meat and fry them in the skillet. Served with mashed potatoes, brown gravy and a vegetable, it is a quick and inexpensive meal. Although these days I usually use ground venison as I don't like what is in regular hamburger meat anymore. Great hub, voted up, useful and interesting! :)

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on May 25, 2013:

Great recipes! They look very appealing. It is always nice to try some else's recipes as a variation from your own. New tastes keep a meal from being humdrum.

Maurine Dodge from Southern California on May 24, 2013:

My favorite burger is to mix a pound of crumbled blue cheese with 10 pounds of burger meat. Light salt and pepper. Makes for an awesome burger.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on May 24, 2013:

Thanks for the recipes, moonlake. They sound very flavorful - especially the Sauerbraten meat patties! Thank you for the useful preparation tips, too.

Stephanie Bradberry from New Jersey on May 24, 2013:

These recipes look delicious. I don't eat pork anymore, so my burgers cut out that aspect now. I love experimenting with spices and things to add to my hamburgers though. I have found they can be good with just salt and maybe a pat of butter in the middle of patty as it cooks or with a lot of different ingredients like diced onion, garlic powder, etc. Thanks for sharing these recipes.
