Recipe by Krystal Arena
My husband had been wishing for some homemade salisbury steak, so I looked at a bunch of different recipes and created my own.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

  8 oz.   uncooked egg noodles
  2 T.   butter
  1 lb.   ground beef or turkey
  2 T.   Worcestershire sauce
  1/2 tsp.   salt
  1/2 tsp.   black pepper
  5 T.   butter
  1 lg.   onion, sliced
  1 pkg.   mushrooms, sliced (optional)
  1 clove   garlic (optional)
  1/4 c.   flour
  1 c.   milk
  1 1/2 c.   water
  2 tsp.   dried parsley flakes
  1 tsp.   beef bouillon (optional)
    salt and pepper to taste
  1.) Cook egg noodles according to instructions on package and toss with 2 T. butter (for 4 serving, amount of butter may change for different servings).
2.) Using hands, mix the meat with 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Form into four patties, each about 1/2-inch thick.
3.) In a large non-stick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Lay patties in pan and brown for about 7 minutes on the first side. Flip patties and add sliced onions and mushrooms and minced garlic, if using. Brown for about 10 more minutes.
4.) Put patties and onions into a strainer to drain the excess grease, and in the meantime, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in the same skillet you used before. When butter is melted, add flour and stir until mixed. Add milk, water, the remaining tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and parsley (and beef bouillon if using) and whisk or stir briskly to combine. Heat until mixture is bubbly and thickens, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
5.) Return meat and onion mixture to skillet and stir in with the sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover pan with lid. Cook for about 8 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over the cooked egg noodles.
