    This came from the TOH Country Ground Beef cookbook.

    Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Sauce

    Mushroom Sauce ( I double )

    1 tbls dehydrated minced onion
    3 tbls butter or margarine
    3 tbls flour
    1/8 tsp pepper
    1 can (4oz)mushrooms, liquid drained and reserved
    1 beef bouillon cube
    1/4 tsp bottled browning sauce

    Salisbury Steak Mixture

    1/3 cup minced onion
    1/3 cup minced green pepper
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 Tbls butter or margarine
    1-1/2 lbs ground beef (I use 2 lbs)
    2 Tbls minced chives or green onion tops (I just use what onion I have on hand)
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    dash paprika
    1 tsp salt (I omit)
    1/2 tsp pepper.

    For sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter and saute onion until soft. Stir in flour and pepper; blend well. Add mushrooms and bouillon,. Add reserved mushroom liquid and enuf water to make 1-1/4 cups; stir and cook until thickened. Stir in browning sauce. Keep warm while preparing the Salisbury steaks. In a skillet, saute onion, green pepper, celery and garlic in butter over low heat. Remove from heat and add to reamining ingredients; mix well. Shape into 6 patties, about 3/4 inches thick. Fry in skillet until done. Serve with mushroom sauce.

    I combined the Best Ever Meatloaf and the Lil Cheddar Meat Loaf. We really like the combination of the two.

    These both are TOH recipes.

    Best-Ever Cheddar Meat Loaf

    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    3/4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup shredded carrot
    1 cup shredded mozarella or cheddar cheese ( I have used both, with great results )
    1/2 tsp each, basil, thyme and sage
    a sprinkling of garlic powder
    a sprinkling of salt free seasoning
    a sprinkling of black pepper
    1-1/2 lb lean ground chuck


    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp prepared mustard

    In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, oatmeal, onions, carrot, cheese and spices and seasoning. Add meat, mix thoroughly.

    Place in loaf pan or whatever you want to use. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min.

    Combine the topping ingredients: spoon some over meat. Bake for about 30 min. longer or until done*.
    Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
    Use rest of topping to serve over each slice. (If you make the lil loaves, it only takes about 45 min for the full cooking time.)

    *Mine didn't require the last full 30 min. I take it out of the oven when it starts to pull away from the sides of the dish and tests at 170 degrees with a meat thermometer.

    1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    10 to 12 corn tortillas
    2 cups small cottage cheese
    1 cup Monterey Jack cheese with peppers*
    1 egg

    shredded lettuce
    shredded cheddar cheese
    chopped tomatoes
    chopped onions (your choice)
    sliced black olives
    sour cream

    Brown ground beef; drain. Add cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, red pepper, salt, pepper, tomatoes and beans; heat thru. Cover bottom and sides of 13x9x2 in baking dish with tortillas. Pour beef mixture over tortillas; place a layer of tortillas over meat mixture and set aside. Combine cottage cheese, Monterey Jack cheese and egg; pour over totillas. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Sprinkle lettuce, cheese, onions, tomatoes and black olives over top. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

    Note: We sprinkle the cheese, lettuce, etc over each individual serving.

    This recipe is actually from TOH, and it is a favorite of everyone who tries it!

    Italian Roast Beef (French Dip) Sandwiches

    1 Chuck Roast (about 3 pounds)
    1 pkg. "Au Jus" mix-dry
    1 pkg. Italian dressing mix-dry
    1 can beef broth
    1/2 can water

    Spray your crock pot with PAM. Put chuck roast in it.
    Combine all other ingredients and whisk till smooth.
    Pour over roast. Put on lid. Cook on high for 6 hours
    or low for 10-12 hours. Take out beef (it will fall apart), shred
    and cut off fat. Put meat back in juice. Cut chewy French bread
    into sandwich size pieces, and split lengthwise.
    Fill with beef, and use a turkey baster to get beef
    juice from crock pot and pour on bread (grease has risen to the top).

    I cook these on the stove in the winter. I just put them in a frying pan and put a foil "tent' over them to keep them moist.

    Crunchy Teriyaki Burgers

    1 1/2 pounds ground beef
    1/2cup finely chopped water chestnuts
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup orange juice
    1 clove garlic
    1 teaspoon molasses
    1/8 teaspoon ginger

    Mix together beef and water chestnuts. Form into 6 patties, 3/4" thick. Place in ungreased baking dish. Mix together remaining ingredients, pour over patties. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours, turning once. Remove patties and grill 4" from heat, turning once, until done, about 10 to 15 mins. Brush frequently with marinade.
