Salisbury Steak Surprise

A classic, stuffed with bleu cheese.


2 lbs. ground beef sirloin
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 small onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper to season
1 block (4 oz) bleu cheese, quartered
flour for dredging
1 cup beef stock or broth


In a large bowl, mix together sirloin, tomato paste, onion and salt and pepper. Form into 4 oval patties. Bury a piece of blue cheese in the center of each patty, sealing well (squish cheese together a little).
In a large skillet, heat a little oil. Dredge patties in flour and brown on both sides. Pour beef stock over, cover, and cook over medium low heat 20 minutes. Serves 4.
Perfect with a side of mashed potatoes and freshly sliced tomatoes
