Large Family Style Salisbury Steaks | Big Family 🦌Venison Recipe

Hey there! 😀 I'm in the kitchen AGAIN and this time I'm making Salisbury steaks.  Really they are just seasoned flattened hamburger or meatloaf patties.  It's been a family favorite for a long time and super simple to make.  They're also so easy to transport I always take this meal when we go on winter family vacations to a cabin up North.  I make the meat mixture ahead of time and then form the patties and broil when we get there.

I've had to adapt this recipe many times since the original makes 2 servings.  We definitely need more than that.

Salisbury Steak (large family style)

4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup dry bread crumbs (Progresso are only $1 at Dollar Tree)
4 tsp. dried minced onion
2 Tbsp. Better Than Bouillon beef soup base

Mix well to make a slurry.  Add 4 pounds ground meat (venison or beef or even turkey) and mix well until everything is combined well.  Shape into flattened oval patties about 3/4 inch thick.  Place on greased broiler pan or rimmed baking sheet.  Broil 3-4 inches from heat for 7 minutes per side.  Mine take a little longer in my gas oven compared to when I had an electric range.

The easiest way to make the gravy is to use 2-4 brown gravy packets.  Cook according to directions and serve with mashed potatoes and green beans for a delicious filling meal that just screams, "My mom loves me!"  If you like a tangy gravy add a squirt of yellow mustard.  I don't, but the original recipe calls for that.

These can be prepared and frozen raw, too.  Just flash freeze the patties and then store in a zip top freezer bag.  Thaw before broiling.
