Salisbury steak dinner something else!
Just in a different sort of mood so slave decided to cook something different. This is an easy, warm meal guaranteed to melt the ice!
1 lbs ground beef
medium yellow onion
3 Tbs old fashioned Oats
¼ cup chopped onion
1 Tbs oil
1 Tbs low sodium Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp paprika
½ tsp Herbes de Provence
1 can beef gravy
½ head cauliflower
1 can chicken broth
½ lbs fresh green beans
1 Tbs oil
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
Clean and snap the green beans, toss with 1 Tbs oil. Spread on a cooking sheet and sprinkle with kosher salt. Set aside.
Cut the cauliflower into small florets and place in a dutch oven with 1 can chicken broth. Cover, bring to boil then turn down to a slight simmer.
Slice the onion very thin. Slave used a mandolin for this. Heat 1 tbs of oil over a medium low heat. Add the onion, you will know if the heat is too high if it sizzles. This cooks low and slow, you just want to caramelize them. Sprinkle with paprika and herbs. Stir occasionally for about 20 minutes. In the last few minutes the onions will start to turn a nice brown.
While they are “sweating” mix the ground beef with the oats, onion, and egg. Mix in the Worcestershire sauce. Form into 4 patties or loafs.
When the onions are done, remove them to a small plate and put the patties into the skillet. Raise the heat to about half way and cover for about 4 minutes.
Turn each over and cook for another 4 minutes. They should be a nice crusty brown. Don't worry about them not being cooked at this point.
Spray a baking dish and place the four patties in with spoonful of onions on each. Pour the caned gravy around them, cover with foil and place in the oven along side of the tray with the green beans. Let them bake for 20 minutes.
The cauliflower should be cooked very soft by now so let it drain well. The drier the better. Now mash this just like you would potatoes, only without the milk or butter. (No it will not be the same as mashed potatoes but it will be good, especially with that gravy from around the steaks.)
slave wishes it had better pictures to show each step on this, but the phone-camera just was not cooperating!
This is a no big deal dinner, but it is very good and not that bad for you. Enjoy some comfort food once in a while.
Slave hopes this warm meal will help defrost your family.
