Her recipe is far more developed than what I made as I did not do a reduction sauce. I didn't have any broth and we don't have wine (and de-alcoholized wine wasn't appealing to me). I also used organic mini-bella mushrooms instead of wild ones as I did not want this lunch costing us $20+. I was quite surprised that the organic mushrooms were the same price as the regular ones ($3), although both are grown without pesticides, so I wonder what the difference is. With the beef being $2.50 a pound, for us it is a relatively inexpensive meal and it would go well with rice, potatoes or noodles of choice (we had it plain). The meat could also be stretched with soaked oatmeal or sourdough bread crumbs or another traditionally prepared starch.
So basically, visit Jenny's site if you want the full flavor experience of a well bodied salisbury steak. Check my recipe out for a quick and cheap version ;)

Mark and I thought this was very good! We actually used all the mushroom onion mix on our two patties since we didn't eat it with anything so I have two burger patties for another meal. Total cost of this meal for me was about $6.50 and we get two meals out of it (not including what I use for the other meal). We could not eat out for that and this is mostly organic, locally grown/produced goodness.
