Salisbury Turkey Steak

Made By: Ryan Noelle     May 1, 2013

     Happy Hump Day Loves!  Last night for dinner I made an all American classic.  Salisbury Steak.  Now this is not your ordinary Salisbury steak.  I used ground turkey and made mushroom gravy to top it off.  This came out terrific! Bonus, only 178 calories per serving!!

     For the gravy I sautéed onions until they were beautifully caramelized.  I added two types of mushrooms fresh cremini and dehydrated porcini.  I have never used dehydrated mushrooms before.  I happened to stumble upon these little treasures in the cheese aisle when I was a wandering Whole Foods.  I thought if they are anything like other dehydrated fruits and veggies the flavor was going to be enhanced! Yup.  I was right.  The flavor was similar to a Lipton mushroom soup packet but without any additives! Perfect!  I really think the dehydrated mushrooms added the extra kick to the dish to bring it from an ordinary healthy Salisbury steak to phenomenally tasting and healthy!  

Protein packed Salisbury Steak.  This dish is a family pleaser!

    • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth

Get Cooking:

In a food processor pulse 1/4 cup porcini mushrooms.  Use these in your turkey patty mix.
Thinly slice one medium to small onion.
Slice cremini mushrooms
Dice or use a can of diced tomatoes 1/2 cup and then smash with your hands so they are crushed.

In a mixing bowl, Mix all ingredients under turkey steak patties.  Mix with hands until incorporated.  Form into oval shaped patties and set aside.

In a large skillet caramelize the onions using the Water Method.  ***Water method is cooking on med-high heat the veggie and adding a couple tablespoons of water to remove browning from pan.  Keep adding water until onions or veggies are caramelized.  Make sure to cook out the water before adding more each time.

Now to the caramelized onions push them to the outside of your skillet and then spray with a non stick spray and add the patties.  Cover and cook for about 4 minutes.  Turn over the patties and cover and cook an additional 3 minutes.

Remove the patties and set aside.

To the onion pan add the gravy ingredients except for the cornstarch.  Bring Gravy to a boil and let simmer on medium for about 5 minutes.  Now add the cornstarch to your gravy mixture and bring back to a boil and let the sauce thicken.

Replace the patties to the pan and let them finish cooking in the gravy.  Cover and put on low and cook for about 4 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower. Yum Yum!
