Salisbury steak was a classic ground beef dish long before TV dinners entered the picture and it was banished to the frozen food section of the supermarkets. This recipe reincarnates it in a combination of classics, retrieving it from the “old food” school with a new spin. Not only is this version made fresh, it’s paired with another classic- a sauce based on French onion soup. It even includes a crisp crouton and melted cheese.

Dredging the lightly seasoned steak burgers in flour enhances browning and also gives  body to the onion sauce. Stove-top braising keeps the ground-meat patties moist and tender.

Sweet onions, like walla walla, vidalia, or maui, give a milder  flavor to the onion sauce. For bolder taste, use yellow onions which are available year round.Even if you’re not an onion fan, this dish will win you over.
