Salisbury Steak

I found this recipe in my Weight Watchers cookbook.  I don't know why I've never tried it before, because it was really good!

Here is the recipe straight from the book:

1-14 oz. can beef broth
3 T. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup picante sauce, divided
12 oz. extra lean ground beef
3 T. breadcrumbs
1 large egg white
cooking spray
1/2-8 oz. package presliced mushrooms

Combine broth, flour and 1/4 cup picante sauce in bowl.  Wisk and set aside.
Combine beef, breadcumbs, egg white and picante sauce in bowl.  Divide into 4 equal parts and shape into patty.
Heat skillet with non stick spray and brown patties on each side for about 5 minutes.  Remove and keep warm.
Add mushrooms and saute until browned.  Add broth mixture.  Bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes until thick.  Add patties back to pan and finish cooking through.

It is 5 points per patty.

What I did: 
I did not have picante sauce, so I added some of the Salsa Verde I had left over in the fridge.  It added a little kick :-).   My ground beef was not as lean as I usually like, so I had to drain off a bit of fat and squeeze it out of the patty.  I also only ate about 1/2 of a patty.

I made the mashed potatoes (w/o butter - use fat free milk and ff sour cream), and also added some cooked cauliflower in the potatoes and mashed it together.  I figure it gives us an extra added veggie and not one single person knew!

I served it with cooked carrots (with a touch of honey and cinnamon), and a side salad.  It was a great meal!
