Ingredients in Salisbury Steak

  • Ground beef: Use lean ground beef (80/20 lean-to-fat ratio) for the best flavor and texture. You can also use ground turkey for a healthier option. If you’re short on time, pre-made frozen patties or meatballs work too!
  • Breadcrumbs & Egg: These bind the steak together and the egg adds moisture.
  • Mushrooms: These are used in the gravy for a rich, earthy flavor. If you don’t like mushrooms, you can use extra onions.
  • Gravy: The gravy is made with a roux (flour and butter) and low sodium beef broth, flavored with garlic, onion powder, and thyme.
  • Seasoning: Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, salt and pepper are all you need, but feel free to add any other seasonings or herbs you like. If you don’t have dry mustard powder, substitute 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard.
  • Toppings: French-fried onions, grated cheese, or even a fried egg make great toppings.

  1. 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 Ann5 stars

  2. 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.5 stars

  3. 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!

  4. 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. Can I leave the mustard powder out and how much stock/broth gets added to the ground meat?5 stars

      2. 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 ¼ cup of the broth to the meat. Enjoy Rick!

  5. 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.a5 stars

  6. 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.5 stars

  7. I can feel the steak is sooooo tender. Using it with some pieces of bread must be perfect xo
    – Natalie

  8. 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!

  9. 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!5 stars

  10. 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 go5 stars

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.
