I don't know if this is necessarily what everyone would call Salisbury steak....but we decided it is what we are going to call Salisbury steak. Either way, whatever you call it, it is definitely yummy comfort food.
4 cubed steaks
1 cup flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
2 Tbs oil
2 pkg brown gravy mix
2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cups cold water
1 can mushrooms (optional)
Beat eggs in a bowl, dip cube steak in egg and then coat in seasoned flour. Heat oil in bottom of a large skillet. quickly brown steaks on either side and remove from heat. (Do not allow to cook thoroughly, just leave them in the pan long enough to brown) Remove steaks from pan. using the same pan, mix together the 2 pkgs of brown gravy mix with the 2 cups of cold water. Stir until well combined. Add the cans of mushroom soup and stir until you have made a nice gravy. If your pan can go directly in the oven, put the steaks back into the skillet. If not, place steaks in the bottom of a casserole dish or crockpot. Cover with gravy. Dump the drained can of mushrooms on top (optional) Cook in a 300* oven for 2-4 hours. (The steaks with be fully cooked in 2 hours, but, the longer you leave them in, the more tender your meat will be.) If you are doing the cooking in a crockpot, cook on low for 4 hrs. Serve with mashed potatoes.
