smothered steak



I decided to experiment for dinner tonight, and the results were amazing! I used to love steak, and I still crave it (even though I'm trying to avoid red meat).  Tonight, I came the closest I have in a long time to enjoying the flavors I used to love - and my husband loved it, too!

In a bowl, mix together 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey, 1 T. brown sugar, 1 T. minced garlic, 1/2 t. black pepper, and 1/4 t. salt. Leave it to sit while working on the next step.


Cut 1/2 of a sweet onion into thin slices (or mince it if you don't do well with sliced onion). Saute with 1 t. olive oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Lower heat and continue to saute until golden and tender.




Add 1 1/2 cups of slice mushroom. Cook and stir until tender.




Add 2 T. balsamic vinegar, 1 1/2 t. sugar, 1/8 t. salt, and 1/8 t. pepper. Cook and stir until liquid is slightly reduced. Remove from skillet and keep warm.




Shape turkey mixture into five patties. Place patties in skillet (no need to clean out any balsamic vinegar remains) and sprinkle liberally with garlic salt and pepper. Cook on each side until done.




Top cooked meat patty with onion and mushroom mixture. And you are done! We had ours with leftover squash casserole and hominy. My mouth is still watering!
