What is Salisbury Steak?

Salisbury Steak is a dish that has been around for years and years.  It usually consists of a homemade hamburger patty smothered in a rich and flavorful brown gravy! I love to add onions and mushrooms to the gravy to add in extra flavor!

Difference Between Salisbury Steak and Hamburger Steak?

We tend to use the terms interchangeably, although some think there is a difference between Salisbury Steak and hamburger steak. Technically a hamburger steak should contain only meat (and seasonings) with no fillers such as breadcrumbs while a Salisbury steak does include different ingredients like onions, eggs and bread crumbs (similar to a meatloaf).

I’ve seen many Salisbury steak and Hamburger steak recipes, and for the most part, I think that both tend to be made the same way if cooked in a gravy mixture.

How To Make Salisbury Steak

One great thing I love about this homemade Salisbury steak is that it’s quick, easy, and needs just one pan to cook the patties and the gravy!! How to make Salisbury steak? There’s really nothing to it.

  1. Softening onions/mushrooms over low heat
  2. Combine the beef mixture and form patties (you can use frozen or store bought hamburger patties if you prefer.
  3. Browned on each side and cook in the gravy mixture until perfectly tender

I keep my gravy simple and while some people make Salisbury steak with french onion soup or mushroom soup, I prefer to get the flavor from real onions and mushrooms! Serve this easy recipe over a pile of perfect mashed potatoes.

  1. usually the big difference between hamburger steak and salisbury steak was the salisbury steak has better meat used , like ground round or Sirloin

  2. I did this WHOLE recipe in my stove-top pressure cooker, w/EXCELLENT results! 18 min cook time. I did add 1 T. Better Than Bouillon to the gravy mix, and 1 t. each of salt, onion & garlic powder to the beef mixture. If the gravy isn’t as thick as you like, thicken it w/a little cornstarch or flour mixed w/a little water & simmered.

  3. I followed this recipe exactly with the single exception that I had beef broth, not condensed. I have two thoughts: first, be sure to use a very lean ground beef or there will be too much grease in the gravy. Second, I would either use considerably less or omit the ketchup. I was hoping for a nice onion, mushroom brown gravy and got a gravy that was overly sweet to my taste. I am not a big fan of ketchup. Perhaps straight tomato sauce rather than sugar ladened ketchup would be better.

  4. That’s so funny because i was starting prep to make that tonight. I also have to make my son different foods doesnt eat red meat or much meat for that matter. Im making him teriyaki tofu grain bowl.

  5. Oh my gosh, Holly! I love to cook, but had never tried making Salisbury Steaks til seeing your recipe tonight.They turned out AMAZING!!! I could drink the gravy! Thank you so much! -Lacey Ann

  6. I will be making this one again. It was very tasty. My husband and kids really enjoyed it. In fact my kids cleaned their plates.

  7. EEEEKKKKKKK! I have no hamburger just ground turkey!! Do you think that will pick up the beef flavor and should I increase the broth in the mixture?

    1. I would worry that increasing the broth could make the patties too soft. Perhaps a bouillon cube sprinkled in could help. I’m sure it’ll still be delicious either way, let us know how it goes!

  8. I wanted to get the recipe for Easy Salisbury Steak but when I click the link it takes me to “Mushroom Salisbury Steak.” Where can I find the “Easy Salisbury Steak” recipe

        1. You can definitely leave out the mustard powder. It’ll change the taste a little, but still be great! In step 2, it indicates to add 1/4 cup of the broth to the meat. Enjoy Rick!

  9. I made this for Sunday dinner. It’s the PERFECT combination for “Easy, delicious and we all have to go back to work tomorrow.” Thank you.a

  10. Everyone in my family thought this was the best Salisbury Steak we have made. We served it with mashed potatoes. My 4 year old daughter ate her whole piece.

  11. Can you make this in the crockpot? If so, how long would you leave it in? Both high and low. Thank you, can’t wait to try it!

  12. This recipe is fantastic! Not only can you use the ground beef mixture, but other non grounded cuts of beef as well. So far, I’ve used the ground beef, cubed steaks, sirloin tip steaks, arm steaks, and even Iowa pork chops. Going to try this with boneless chicken breasts swapping the beef gravy mix and broth to chicken. This is a go to recipe!

  13. A go to definitely, for someone like me who just can’t bring myself to eat a plain dry disgusting burger patty this is the way to go

  14. Yuuuumy It’s simmering on the stove now and the kitchen smells amazing! Looking forward to it! Thanks so much!!!!! Bless you

  15. I made this on top of the stove and my husband and I loved it. I want to try the crockpot recipe for I didn’t prepare for it the first time. I would highly recommend this tasty dish.

  16. I can not cook. I married a professional chef because i hate to cook. I took a chance and made this for my husband and family and they loved it. It certainly didn’t take 5 hours, only 2 and a half, but could be the cooker i used. Thank you for making cooking exciting and fun.

  17. I made your Mushroom Salisbury Steak for my family tonight and everyone loved it! (Including me!) my husband only had one request, the next time I make it serve rolls so he can dip them in the sauce.

  18. I am very excited to try this recipe……With the cooler months coming our way, this will be a go-to dish for my family….thank you for sharing.

  19. That looks so good. I haven’t had Salisbury Steak in so many years. But I love it. I think I might have to tweak this week’s menu so I can try your recipe! Thanks so much for sharing this in Tell Me About It Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing what you share tomorrow!
