Salisbury Steak

Have you ever eaten salisbury steak not out of a box or in a school cafeteria?  Me either.  Well, until today.  I found this recipe in my trusty Comfort Food cookbook and didn't know what to make of it.  After reading the ingredients, it sounded tasty and pretty easy!
I did have to fix the recipe a bit though, there was no binding ingredient in the meat, so I added one which should work much better!  Also, as a disclaimer, this doesn't have the thick sauce that normal salisbury steak has... though it is delicious!

Salisbury Steak

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup seasoned Italian breadcrumbs
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/2 cup red wine

Preparation: 
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Cook onions until soft, remove from skillet.
Mix meat, egg, breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
Roll to form patties.  (The recipe suggests to make three 1/2 pound patties, however I made 6 smaller ones.)
Place in skillet.  Cook 5 minutes on one side.  Flip.  Cook an additional 3 minutes.
Remove from skillet.
Place onions back in skillet.  Add red wine.  Bring to a boil.  Cook one minute, or until slightly thick.
To eat, spoon sauce and onions over steak.
Enjoy!
(I served this with a side of stuffing and caprese salad!)
