Salisbury Steak

I have fond memories of Salisbury in the 99-cent Swanson frozen dinners that got me through school, but it's not something I'd ever considered making. I saw this on one of my favorite food blogs, No Recipes, and it had two unusual ingredients that made me want to try it: Ricotta cheese and Heinz 57 Sauce. Odd!

Ground beef, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, onion, parsley, an egg...and Ricotta cheese.

All mixed a Ricotta cheese meatloaf.

And formed into the telltale oval patties. Then baked in the oven for about 15 minutes, so they're underdone.

Shallots and mushrooms...

Sauteed in butter...

Until cooked down very far.

Then Heinz 57, with beef stock, more Worcestershire and some honey.

Stock reduced...

About a quarter cup Heinz 57 and a splash and dash of the rest added...

Mixed up and heated through until it thickens a bit.

Shallots and mushrooms back in the pan...

And the beef patties back in and heated through. Salisbury Steak. Quite excellent! (And no cardboard box and tray to throw away.)
