What is Salisbury Steak?

When it comes to classic, home-cooked American cuisine, it doesn’t get any more delicious than Salisbury steak. This dish is nothing more than ground beef patties smothered in a rich onion and mushroom gravy. The ground beef is seasoned and mixed with egg and bread crumbs as a binder.

Traditionally, the patties are cooked in a skillet on the stovetop, and then simmered in Salisbury steak gravy, made with beef stock, onion and mushrooms. You could also pile the patties and the gravy ingredients in a crock pot, for slow cooker Salisbury steak. But if you’re looking to save time, this Instant Pot Salisbury steak with easy mushroom gravy is perfect!

How To Make Salisbury Steak From Scratch

I love cooking in my Instant Pot (if you aren’t familiar with them, you can learn more here: What is The Instant Pot?). Just follow these simple steps to make homemade Salisbury steak in your Instant Pot:

  1. Place chopped onion and sliced mushrooms in the bottom of your Instant Pot.
  2. Mix the ingredients for the beef patties, and shape into patties.
  3. Brown the patties in a skillet, and then layer onto the onion and mushrooms.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on high pressure.

I have browned the patties in the Instant Pot (on sautee) however they can be difficult to flip so using a non-stick frying pan is easier. Either way will work!

How To Make Salisbury Steak Gravy

No Salisbury steak would be complete without a rich gravy. After the patties are finished cooking in your Instant Pot, it’s super easy to make mushroom gravy right inside the Instant Pot:

  • While the patties are still cooking in your Instant Pot, make a cornstarch and water slurry.
  • When the cooking cycle is complete, depressurize and remove the lid. Set the patties aside.
  • Turn the Instant Pot to sauté, and when the sauce starts bubbling, stir in the cornstarch slurry to thicken.

Voila, perfect rich salisbury steak gravy!

You might have noticed by now that the ingredients for Salisbury steak patties are very similar to the ones we use for meatballs. This Instant Pot Salisbury steak recipe can easily be made into Salisbury steak meatballs. Instead of forming the meat, egg and bread crumb mixture into patties, form them into 1” meatballs. Then, just proceed with the rest of the recipe as directed.

These can be browned in batches of two using the sautee function. I found it difficult to flip and time consuming so opted to use a frying pan. The choice is yours.

  1. A family favorite! The kids are anaphylactic to dairy and eggs, so we use a dairy milk sub and just eliminate the egg and it turns out amazing! Highly reccomend!5 stars

  2. Amazing!! Had to do a couple alterations due to lack of ingredients. No Tomato paste, used equal part chili sauce. For Dijon, I had a Dijon horseradish. (That little kick was the bomb. ) Used cubed steak instead of ground beef. And a Gluten Free gravy packet.5 stars
