Salisbury Steak and Mushroom Gravy

I don't know where summer is in Wisconsin? On colder days I like comfort food like Salisbury Steak and mashed potatoes. The gravy is stick to your ribs and just what you need on a day like this.

Salisbury Steak

1 1/2 lbs ground chuck
8 crushed saltine crackers
2-4 TBSP Milk
salt and pepper

Mushroom Gravy Gravy
8-10 mushrooms sliced
2 TBSP butter
2 TBSP flour
2 cups beef stock
salt and pepper
dash of Thyme

Crush up the crackers and and add to the ground beef. Season with salt and pepper and add the milk. Blend with your hands until well combined. Shape into oblong patties or the size of your choice. Make sure they are all uniform in size so they cook at the same time. Add patties to a large frying pan and brown on both sides. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. Do not drain out the fat!
Add the mushrooms to the pan and brown. Add the butter and flour on top of the mushrooms and brown the flour until a pale brown. Pour in the stock and
use a whisk until there are no more lumps. Return the patties back to the pan and continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes or until the patties are cooked through. Serve with mashed potatoes.
