Salisbury Steaks with Mushroom Ragout

Salisbury Steaks with Mushroom Ragout

Quick and easy comfort food with a modern twist. Salisbury Steak gets an upgrade from sautéed wild mushrooms and a flavorful wine sauce. Up the ante and serve alongside Crispy Smashed New Potatoes and Wilted Broccoli Rabe. And the best part? All three can be made in an hour.

Want to save even more time? Mix and form the patties the night before, cover, and refrigerate. Leave the browning and braising for the next day.

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!
