This family-favorite is quick and easy. Anyone can make this, from the seasoned long-time cook to the beginning newlywed bride who is just building their recipe collection. I plan on giving this to my son's future wife at her upcoming bridal shower!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a large casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Lightly mix ground beef, 1/2 cup onion, bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons beef broth, milk, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl; divide into 5 portions and shape into patties.

  • Season flour with salt and pepper in a wide, shallow dish. Gently lay patties into the flour to lightly coat.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties in hot oil until browned completely, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove patties to a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess grease.

  • Stir remaining beef broth, cream of mushroom soup, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl until smooth.

  • Arrange drained patties into the prepared casserole dish. Spread onion slices atop the patties and pour the soup mixture over the patties to cover completely.

  • Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 45 minutes to 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

This can also be made in a slow cooker instead of in the oven by moving the browned patties to a slow cooker, adding other ingredients from there, and cooking on Low for 4 to 5 hours.

This is delicious served with mashed potatoes, buttered egg noodles, or rice.

It could easily be made with ground turkey for the fat-free calorie counters among us.

I use all msg-free products and Healthy Request(R) brand soup, and nobody knows the difference.

I leave extra seasoning to my guests so some might not find this salty enough.
