A hearty recipe from my good friend Deena.
1/4 C cornstarch
2 cans beef consomme, undiluted or 21 oz. of beef broth
sliced mushrooms (6 oz can or fresh)
4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 egg, beaten
1/2 C soft bread crumbs
1 med onion, chopped fine*
1/2 – 1 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 lbs ground beef or ground meat of choice
In bowl, combine consomme w/cornstarch until smooth, add mushrooms, worcestershire, and basil. Set this aside. In another bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, onion, seasoning salt, and pepper. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 6 oval patties; place in pan and fry, turning patties when needed. Pour consomme mixture over meat and cook until done. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes or hot noodles.
*I saute the onions a bit before adding to the beef.
