For in the kitchen,
Someone lit a matchstick.

Crock Pot Salisbury Steak

  • 2  pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs, or plain and add 1 tblsp of Italian seasoning
  • 2-4 squirts of Worcestershire sauce
  • handful of Parsley
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2-1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet dry au jus mix
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 package fresh mushrooms,sliced or 2 cans of sliced mushrooms 

In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, spices and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat down the patties in the flour.  I covered them thickly.  Place in frying pan until brown on both sides. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid. 

In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of mushroom soup, au jus mix, and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours, until ground beef is well done. 

Make sure to keep an eye on the crock pot.  Mine was cooked closer to 3 hours.
