homemade salisbury steak

I remember growing up eating Salisbury steak from the TV Dinner boxes... if Salisbury steak was meant to taste like that, we'd be in big trouble and never even attempt this recipe. Don't be afraid to try it if your experience of Salisbury steak has been similar. This is how it should taste...additionally, it is a lighter version for you health nuts out there!!

1/2 lb lean ground turkey
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 tbsp minced dried onions
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs (I had to skip this step because I didn't have enough time to make the bread crumbs and dry them out...will definitely add next time!)
2 egg whites
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 1/4 cups beef broth
1/8 tsp salt
pinch black pepper, or to taste
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp mustard powder
1/3 cup water
Combine the meats, dried onions, onion powder, breadcrumbs, and egg whites in a bowl. Form four patties from this mixture.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and brown the patties on both sides. Remove patties and set aside. Drain skillet if necessary.
Add mushrooms to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes, While mushrooms cook, combine beef broth, salt, pepper, flour, tomato paste, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, and water.
Return patties to the skillet and spread mushrooms evenly throughout the skillet.
Pour broth mixture in the skillet over the patties and mushrooms. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low, cover, and let simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This recipe was taken from Cara's Creature Comforts. I may add a little buttermilk next time to make the meat a little more juicy!
