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.
