Slow Cooker Sunday ~ Salisbury Steak

Before I started Sweets of Style I asked the question on Facebook…..”Does anyone remember these TV dinners?”

These were a standard Saturday night meal when I was very young and when my parents would go out, leaving me with a babysitter, the Muppets and a TV dinner.   I liked the one with the brownie in the middle and probably suffered through the dodgy mystery meat (that I can’t remember) to get to it.   Someone on Facebook reminded me that there was always a stray piece of corn that was completely baked in the brownie!  I do remember that the mac n cheese was my favourite (gee, what a surprise!) but I can’t remember what the dessert was that went with that one.   I suspect it was a trade off between the brownie OR the mac n cheese because, surely, they would have been the two best sellers to kids and probably not combined in one meal!  And while I no longer eat beef (but I do eat plenty of brownies), my family does enjoy their carnivorous ways

Today I escaped life and drove to Sydney to have lunch with a beautiful lady and friend but knew the troops would be chomping at the bit for dinner when I got home.   We dined at the Hard Rock Café in Sydney and when my glorious gluten free salad arrived (after interrogating the poor waiter), my sweet friend declared, “That is HUGE”. I ate EVERY – LAST – BITE!!!!

I was fairly confident that I would not need dinner so was thanking my lucky stars for Slow Cooker Sunday.   A great way to end the weekend for my amazing family with a meal they absolutely loved, and I got to spend some quality time with a super gal pal whom I adore!

This is a much healthier and tastier version of a TV dinner classic that your family is sure to love.   I desperately wanted to serve these in segmented plates, like the originals!

Slow Cooker Sunday ~ Salisbury Steak (serves 8……or 4 normal people and one teenager)
Recipe adapted from Fake Ginger
1 kilo of premium minced beef
1 pack dry cream of chicken gluten free soup mix
1/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
2 tsp onion seasoning
3/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup gluten free flour
2 tsp olive oil
1 can mushrooms
1 cup  gluten free gravy prepared

Drain the mushrooms and place in the food processor to pulverise. Return to the can and fill it with ½ cup skim milk (substituting for glutinous cream of mushroom soup) In a large mixing bowl mix together ground beef, dry soup mix, onion seasoning, breadcrumbs, and remaining ¼ cup skim milk.

Divide and shape into 8 patties.   Coat in flour and set aside.

Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.   Brown the patties, a few at a time, for just a minute on each side (my slow cooker has a skillet function in it so I only used the one appliance.   Bonus!   If your’s does not, just brown lightly in a pan and set aside).   Transfer all 8 patties to the to slow cooker, stacking them if necessary.

.
In another mixing bowl, whisk together the mushroom/milk mixture, and prepared gravy.   Pour over the patties in the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

Serve with veggies, mashed potato and gravy.

Just make sure you save at least one corn kernel to bake in your next batch of brownies :)

    This looks like a great way to spice up the old favourite “Rissoles and Gravy”!! I have cooked these heaps of times using using my dear old Mum’s tried and true recipe, but adding the soup mix and the mushrooms sounds good for a “change”. I have tried adding a little curry powder from time to time, but you do need to be a fan of curry to fully appreciate that change. Thanks again Lisa you’ve got me thinking!!!
