Making Do ... NOT Packaged Onion Soup Mix

... so here I was, again, making these Salisbury Steaks in the crock pot, only instead of 7:30am on a Wednesday, it was 8pm on a Tuesday ... don't ask, things sometimes just don't go according to plan, and well, the beef just was not going to wait for much longer!  So I figured, heck, I'll make them overnight, and then just reheat them gently for dinner on Wednesday ... sounds like a pretty good plan, don't you think?

Eh ... where's that envelope of onion soup mix I bought a few weeks ago ... HONEY? HONEY-POO? YO, MARK!!!!!
Really.  Really?
Sometimes I hate sharing space with Hubby in the kitchen ... he uses things and then doesn't tell me that it was the L A S T one ... powdered onion soup mix THIS week ... just like the LAST time!
Thankfully, we have Google ... or rather, in MY case, Swagbucks ...
Stayed with the all time, simple site and recipe, and of course, mixed it up MY way:

2 1/2 tbs dried minced onions
1 tsp onion powder
dash of dried parsley
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 packets of dried beef bouillon
1 cube of beef bullion
*the packets were 1 cup each and the cube was 2 cups, you need 4 cups worth total*

So...mix it all up in a bowl and use it the way you normally would a packet ...

Saved my butt, that's all I can say for the day!  I've never seen them but there MUST be low sodium, salt free beef bouillon crystals/cubes/powder out there, don't you think? Let me know if you've seen them so I can look a little more closely!


  1. I love using Onion Soup mix for dip and roasted potatoes. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
