What is Salisbury Steak?

Salisbury Steak is a dish that has been around for about 100 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!

What is the difference between a Salisbury steak and a 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 recipes and for the most part I think that both tend to be made the same way if cooked in a gravy mixture.

How do you make Salisbury Steak?

One great thing I love about this recipe is that it’s quick, easy and needs just one pan to cook the patties and the gravy!!

I start by softening my onions/mushrooms, this is done over low heat so they are cooked but not browned.

While the onion mixture is cooking, I combine the beef, onions, seasonings and bread crumbs.  Eggs are added to bind the mixture and I form it into patties.  You can most certainly use frozen or store bought hamburger patties if you prefer (although I do think homemade Salisbury Steak tastes best)!

The patties are browned on each side and finally cooked 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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
