If you are a fan of Salisbury steak from Jollibee, know that it is so easy to make at home.
The burger patty can be bought pre-made from the meat section of the supermarket, or some stores carry the frozen ones.
But if you want to make it from scratch, it is just as easy -- all you need is couple slices of white loaf bread soaked in milk, plus seasonings.
Why do we need a bread and milk paste, or panade? This essentially makes the burger moist and tender.
As for the gravy, it is the same as the chicken gravy, except that beef flavoring is added instead of chicken.
Also, there's the option of adding sliced button mushrooms, as this goes well with the gravy.
YOUR SALISBURY STEAK SHOPPING LIST:
IN THE PANTRY:
1 Soak the loaf bread pieces in milk for 5 minutes, then wring out excess liquid.
2 Mash the softened bread into the ground beef, season with salt and pepper and form into burger patties.
3 Grill or fry the burger patties, then set aside and start cooking the gravy.
4 To make the gravy, melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour.
5 Cook together until medium to slightly dark brown, about 5-8 minutes on low heat.
6 Add the dried thyme, ground pepper, Knorr beef cube and water.
7 Bring to a boil while mixing continuously.
8 Strain the gravy and add the button mushrooms.
9 Top the burger with the mushroom and beef gravy and serve.
