Salazarian Salisbury Steak

There are days which present opportunities for which extra Ambition and Cleverness are needed to fulfill.  While no one wants to go “overboard” into outright greed and illegality, this meal will help you obtain the proper amount of “Let’s Do It” attitude.


One egg
½ Cup dry bread crumbs
½ Cup tomato juice (or Imitation Dragon’s Blood for extra “oomph”)
One Tablespoon of minced garlic
One pound ground beef (or ground turkey, etc.)
One Cup water
One envelope of brown gravy mix (the kind purchased in the grocery store)


  • Combine the egg, meat, bread crumbs tomato juice, and garlic.  Shape the mixture into “patties.”
  • Brown the patties on both sides in a skillet.
  • Add the gravy packet’s contents and one cup water to the skillet. Stir gently to combine meat juices and gravy.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Simmer on lower heat, covered, for about ten minutes. While simmering, recite the following spelle three times and wave your wand over the pan each time.  (Serve with some sort of pasta or rice, and green vegetable or salad.)

Power of thought and strength of hand
Are needed now to meet this demand,
So send to me through this meal
Extra ability to “wheel and deal.”
