"First had this dish at an Amish church in rural Ohio. I will never forget the delicious smell of that church kitchen! After a little questioning, a kind woman gave me the recipe. Great for a plan-ahead meal."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Mix ground beef, milk, saltine cracker crumbs, onion, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Shape mixture into a narrow loaf and place onto a baking sheet; cover and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut loaf into 1-inch-thick slices and sear the 'steaks' in the hot skillet until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Insides will still be pink. Arrange slices in a roasting pan. Spread mushroom soup over steaks.
  4. Bake steaks in the preheated oven until mushroom soup is bubbling and meat is no longer pink inside, about 1 hour. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of a meat slice should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • We like to supplement the gravy by adding additional fresh mushrooms and onion slices. You can use French onion soup instead of cream of mushroom but skip the teaspoon of salt.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Disappointed again by everyone trying to change or add to this recipe. This is an old Amish recipe. It's a little more work to cut the steaks and brown them in a skillet, then bake them, but it ...

Absolutely delicious, but a little crumbly. I put foil over the top so the mushroom soup wouldn't bake into the pan.

Followed the directions. The meat slices fell apart when I tried to "sear" them. Meat had good flavor though. Very sad that this did not turn out well.

Made for Recipe Group 2/20/13. I doubled this & ended up letting it sit in the fridge for 1 1/2 days because dinner plans changed. The meat sliced & fried up like a dream, however, it was pretty...
