I got this recipe in the mail. Who knew it would go in my favorites pile??

French Onion Salisbury Steak (adapted from Cuisine At Home)

Serves 4

1 lb. ground beef

¼ cup fresh minced parsley

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. black pepper

2 T all-purpose flour

1 T olive oil

2 cups onions, sliced

1 tsp. sugar

1 T garlic, minced

1 T tomato paste

2 cups beef broth

¼ dry red wine

¾ tsp. salt

½ tsp. dried thyme

Combine the ground beef, parsley, salt and pepper. Make 4 one-inch oval patties. Place 1 T of flour in a shallow dish and dredge each patty through the flour. Heat 1 T of oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and sauté 3 mins on each side, or until browned. Remove from pan. Add onions and sugar to pan; sauté five minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste; sauté 1 minute, or until paste begins to brown. Sprinkle onions with 1 T flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and wine, then add the salt & thyme. Return meat to pan and bring soup to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, simmer 10 mins .

***Ahhh...two steaks in love....

Serve the steaks on Cheese Toasts with onion soup laded over.

Cheese Toasts

4 slices French bread or baguette, cut diagonally (1/2 inch thick)

2 T softened butter

½ tsp. garlic, minced

¼ cup Swiss Cheese (I didn’t have any, so I just used the parmesan)

1 T grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place bread on a baking sheet.

Combine butter and garlic and spread on one side of each slice of bread.

Combine cheeses and sprinkle evenly over butter.

Bake until bread is crisp and cheese is bubbly.
