  • Being quick and easy makes this recipe doable on a weeknight and perfect for the novice cook.

How to make Salisbury Steak

Start by adding all the ingredients for the patties in a large bowl.  Using your hands mix the ingredients and mold them into four equal sized patties.  Then add a little oil to a large skillet and brown the patties.  Now plate the patties.

Then add some butter and a little more oil to the skillet over medium heat.  Now cook the onions and mushrooms until the onions are soft and the mushrooms are browned.  Then reduce the heat and add the garlic stirring and cooking for 1 minute.  Next sprinkle the mixture with a little bit of flour.  Stir and cook for about 1 minute.  Then slowly add the beef broth stirring to combine until smooth.  Salt and pepper to taste and add the beef patties back to the skillet.  Simmer for about 7 minutes so the sauce can thicken and patties can finish cooking through.

Recipe notes and helpful tips

  • Use white button or cremini mushrooms sliced fairly thick.  The cremini mushroom is simply just a more mature version of the white button mushroom giving it a little more flavor.
  • I like to use ground beef that is about 90% lean giving it some flavor without being too greasy.
  • A little butter helps the mushrooms brown well and a little oil helps the patties brown even better.
  • If the gravy gets a little thick then add a little more broth and thin it out.
  • Top the steaks with a little fresh thyme, parsley or rosemary.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.  Reheat on the stove over a low simmer or in the microwave at a reduced power.
