Salisbury Steaks with Mushroom and Onion Gravy
Salisbury steak is one of my favorite comfort foods.  There is something about the tender beef simmered in a rich mushroom and onion laced gravy and served with mashed potatoes that makes me very happy.

Don’t be put off by the long ingredient list or steps in the directions. This is a very simple dish to make. Most of the time is spent simmering the steaks in the gravy.

This would be fabulous served with corn, onion, and pepper saute, butter garlic green beans, or yellow squash and onion saute. Add some sour cream biscuits or easy yeast rolls to round out the meal.
