Salisbury Steak with Spicy Rich Gravy


One of our comfort foods…. traditional Salisbury Steak with a spicy, rich gravy topped off with caramelized onions, mushrooms and  candied jalapeñosImage onions and mushrooms.


1 pound Ground Round

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce, divided

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1 medium sweet onion, sliced into rings

8 medium sized mushrooms, sliced

1 tablespoon coarse salt

1 cup beef broth

2 tablespoons of the candied jalapeños brine (juice)

1 tablespoon flour

candied jalapeños, slices


Combine the ground round, salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce in a large mixing bowl and form into 4 burger sized patties or 2 large steak burgers. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate until ready to use. Over medium-low heat, place about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the pan and add the garlic, onions and mushrooms. Sprinkle salt over the onions and mushrooms and cook for about 15 minutes until onions are caramelized.  Remove the onions and mushrooms from the skillet and cover with foil. Using the same skillet turn the heat to medium low and add the burgers.  Cook until done all the way through. Place on a plate and cover with foil. Return to the same skillet and turn the heat to medium and add the beef broth, candied jalapeño brine (juice), Worcestershire and flour. Whisk until bubbly and thickened. Salt and pepper to taste. Place the steaks back in the skillet with gravy and top with the caramelized onions, mushrooms and slices of candied jalapenos.

Breakfast With a Kick Casserole



1/2 cup. of candied jalapeños, chopped

12 large eggs

1 lb. of bacon, cooked and broken up

1 lb. sausage cooked, and crumbled ( I like Italian sausage ) 

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup milk

6 slices of bread

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. white pepper

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/2 cup red and green bell pepper, chopped


Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 11 x 13 baking dish. Place bread slices over the bottom of the dish, don’t overlap. Mix together eggs and milk with a whisk until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Add rest of the ingredients and pour over the bread.  

Bake 20 – 30 minutes, until lightly browned. Slice and serve

This is an easy breakfast dish for a group of people.  I fix this the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. The dish will take a least an extra 45 minutes to cook when cold.
