I went with only 3 stars, but that doesn't mean this was a bad recipe. The beef patties were PERFECT; my husband raved about the texture and taste - true salisbury. However, the sauce left a lot to be desired in our opinions. I decided to double the sauce to go with the mashed potatoes & found the extra french onion soup too overwhelming. Also, my hubby is not a mustard fan at all, so its aroma in the sauce really stood out to him. Last, I would skip the ketchup entirely. Guess I'm too used to an oniony, beef gravy with salisbury steak & ketchup was not a pleasant surprise here. Since I was down to the wire when I discovered the final results of the recipe sauce, I simply removed the sauce from the simmered patties, whipped up 2 packs of Knorr brown gravy, added only the smallest amount of the first sauce to that, and served it up. Everyone was happy; even Mr. Picky Kid who, based on school cafeteria salisbury steak, thought that it was going to be awful.
I will definitely use the recipe for the patties again, but will have to tinker with the sauce. Maybe... the rest of the french onion soup, with Knorr beef boullion broth, flour to thicken, and a splash of worchestershire. Sounds tasty already!
