Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Salisbury Steak

Salisbury steak is minced beef formed into an elongated patty  to resemble a steak.  Like meatloaf it may contain other ingredients like bread crumbs as an extender but in order to be labeled as salisbury steak the mixture must contain a minimum of 65% meat.  Of that 25% can be pork.  The patties are usually served with gravy and mashed potatoes.  The meal is a popular commercially prepared frozen TV dinner.

Salisbury steaks can be bought pre-made usually in the freezer section but some butcher shops make them as well.  The patties can easily be made at home as well.  I used pre-formed salisbury steak patties purchased from a local butcher shop as part of the boxed meats bought to support a school fundraiser. 

Rather than use an actual gravy I took a shot cut by using home canned plain spaghetti sauce.  I served the patties on a bed of sautéed cabbage.  This made for a tasty, quick, filling yet frugal entrée that took less than 15 minutes to prepare.
