Combine in medium-sized mixing bowl the beef, eggs, pepper, salt, garlic. breadcrumbs and mushroom soup. Mix ingredients well. Form 6-8 thick patties and set aside.
In a large skillet, melt margarine (4 oz). Making sure your skillet is hot, place patties in pan and brown on each side for about 4 minutes. Remove patties from skillet and set in a baking dish or pan. Reserve drippings from skillet. Add 4 oz flour to drippings, heat and stir. Add 1 quart water with 2 tbsp beef base and stir vigorously until gravy is hot and begins to bubble. Pour gravy over Salisbury and bake at 350° for about 45-60 minutes.
To be authentic, Sokolowski’s University Inn Famous Salisbury Steak must be served with grilled onions.
