|Tuesday night I was really feeling ambitious, so I took out all of my Cuisine at Home magazines and started drooling. What a fabulous home cook's magazine! I eventually settled upon French Onion Salisbury Steak because I had all the ingredients on hand and it looked positively yummy.|
And it was! Simple ingredients, short prep and cooking time and I had a fantastic dinner that looked beautiful as well. Best part is, it freezes well, so I've got 3 dinners already made and waiting for me whenever I so desire.. bonus!

Makes 4 Steaks; Total Time: 45 Minutes
1 1/4 lb. ground chuck
1/4 c. fresh minced parsley
2 TBS. scallion, minced
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 TBS. all-purpose flour
2 TBS. olive oil
2 cups onions, sliced
1 tsp. sugar
1 TBS. garlic, minced
1 TBS. tomato paste
2 cups beef broth
1/4 cup dry red wine
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
4 tsp. minced, fresh parsley
4 tsp. Parmesan cheese, shredded
4 slices French bread or baguette, cut diagonally (1/2" thick)
2 TBS. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
Pinch of paprika
1/4 cup Swiss cheese, grated (I used 4 italian cheese blend, shredded)
1 TBS. Parmesan cheese, grated
Combine chuck, parsley, scallion, salt and pepper. Divide evenly into 4 portions and shape each into 3/4"-1" thick oval patties. Place 2 TBS. flour in a shallow dish; dredge each patty in flour. Reserve 1 tsp. flour.
Heat 1 TBS. oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and saute 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove from pan.
Add onions and sugar to pan; saute 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste; saute 1 minute, or until paste begins to brown. Sprinkle onions with reserved flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and wine, then add the salt and thyme.
Return meat to pan and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
Serve steaks on Cheese Toasts with onion soup ladled over. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan.
For the Cheese Toasts
Preheat oven to 400º F.
Place bread on baking sheet.
Combine butter, garlic and paprika and spread on one side of each slice of bread. Combine cheeses and sprinkle evenly over butter. Bake until bread is crisp and cheese is bubbly, 10-15 minutes.
