This wasn't something my parents ever fed me growing up, I only just learned I like this Salisbury steak kind of meal when I had it recently at the cafeteria at work. I was really excited to try this recipe, it sounded great. It also smelled fantastic while it was cooking. That smell didn't completely translate into the taste though. It was ok, but not *great*. I agree with one review I read that said the patties tasted very 'meaty'. I realize that's a silly thing to say about a hunk of meat, but I can't think of another way to describe it. I think it was actually the taste of the drippings in the gravy though. I think I would have preferred to drain most of the drippings and add some butter to the pan to finish cooking the onions and make the gravy; it could maybe just be that I'm used to buying extra lean ground beef and bought lean this time. I also would have liked more onion; I didn't really realize how little there was in the pan until I went to serve. They cooked down quite a bit. My gravy was also lumpy but that's really no one's fault but my own. I put too much flour I think, maybe I shouldn't have quite doubled that when I doubled the gravy. I didn't have sherry so I used a splash of red wine in the gravy and that was good. Thanks for the recipe, I was happy to try it and I enjoyed the meal, but I think I'll try a different recipe the next time I want this meal.
