Recipe Wednesday

This morning, bright and early, one of my nieces posted to me on Facebook that she had lost her recipe for Poor Man's Steak.  A few years ago, I put a lot of family recipes into a cookbook that I made and gave to family members.  It was really well received and some have asked me when I'm doing Volume 2.  So I've decided that for the next few months I will do a Recipe Wednesday and post some of my favorite recipes here on my blog.  And thanks to Paula's request, today's recipe will be Poor Man's Steak.  I got this recipe from an Amish Friend, and it's become a family favorite.

Poor Man's Steak
2 pounds ground chuck
2 cups cracker crumbs
2 cups milk
2 cans Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 medium onion , finely chopped
pepper to taste


The day before, combine ground chuck, cracker crumbs, milk and onion. Mix well. Shape into two logs and wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate overnight. The next day, slice logs into 1 inch slices. In a skillet, brown slices well on both sides. Remove from skillet and put in baking dish one layer at a time. Spoon cream of mushroom soup over top of this layer and add other layers as needed, ending with mushroom soup. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
I have made this into patties when I was rushed, and then cooked as instructed.  It was just as good.  Hope you enjoy!
