This is one of our favorite family meals!  I love using my slow cooker any time of year!

Since I’m the one who does most of the cooking, I love coming home to a ready meal, this easy slow cooker Salisbury Steak recipe tops my list.

The beef patties simmer all day in a rich gravy with mushrooms and onions resulting in a really flavorful dish and making them extra tender.

A lot of people confuse Salisbury steaks (which is a combination of ground beef in gravy) with Swiss Steak which is generally minute steak with a tomato based sauce.

(You can find my favorite Swiss steak recipe here).

Salisbury Steaks can be prepared in a skillet but I love them in the slow cooker since it can be prepped ahead of time and it’s ready right when we get home from soccer practice.

 

It doesn’t take long to make the beef patties homemade and they taste absolutely delicious.

I often double the beef patties in this recipe and freeze half of them (without browning them first) for next time.

If you happen to have pre-made frozen beef patties they can be used in this recipe as well with great results.

The simple step of searing the beef patties just helps them to hold their shape without falling apart plus browning meat always adds extra flavor!

Once seared the patties are layered in the Crock Pot with sliced onions and mushrooms.

Next I combine the gravy ingredients and pour it over the patties.

While some recipes do call for cream of mushroom soup, I prefer this version with a richer darker gravy.

We serve this on top of garlic mashed potatoes or rice but my all time favorite is serving it over cooked macaroni noodles.  Add a side salad and you’ve got the perfect meal!

We have also made this recipe with ground turkey (I also add a bit of celery to the mixture) and a turkey gravy with great results.

The patties always come out flavorful and fork tender.

Should you be lucky enough to have leftovers (we rarely do), this reheats perfectly and makes a great messy sandwich in a hamburger bun topped with sliced tomatoes and mayonnaise.

  1. I bookmarked it already! Holly, thank you for sharing it!

  2. Having a slow cooker makes life so much easier for busy moms, I can see why this is your family’s favorite, all that flavors!

  3. This sounds so tasty. I’m sharing with my recipe group who love slow cooker dishes!

  4. Salisbury steak is one of those meals that brings back fond memories of my grandmother. She use to make it when I was a kid and I loved it! Never tried making it in a crock pot. Recipe sounds delicious!

  5. Looks sooo good, and I just love that this is a crockpot recipe!

  6. Slow cooked meals are AWESOME and so homely. LOVE THIS! Thanks for sharing your amazing recipe. :)

  7. I love using my slow cooker any time of the year, and this recipe is definitely happening inside it!

  8. Could you also use Cube Steak? Or does it have to be ground beef?

  9. Got this in the crockpot now – only thing it is a little time consuming – I usually like easy recipes but this looks so good! we wil see :)

  10. I could not wait to try this. No rare ingredients. Good home cooking. No subbing in ground turkey or something politically correct in today’s food fad phenonomenon. Just.good.food. This was outstanding. I made it exactly as you recommended. Usually I tweak something after preparing, but there is no need. Perfection. Thank you for sharing.

    • :) I am so glad you loved it Beth!

    • That is so funny! I just finished getting everything in the crochet pot and thinking it’s the first time in my life that I actually did the total recipe without tweeking, adding or subtracting. I hope I’m not disappointed.

  11. Do you use fresh or dried minced onion?

  12. This looks fabulous! I need to use my slow cooker more….saved recipe to try!

  13. Step 3 says ‘combine remaining ingredients’ but step 5 says to combine the water and cornstarch. Is it added twice, or no added in step 3? Thanks.

  14. Just made this yesterday and it was mouthwatering. So delicious. I don’t use my slow cooker that often but I am now keeping a copy of the recipe inside it because I am sure it will be one of many more meals to come. Especially easy and good for company.

  15. Would you be able to make this into a freezer crockpot meal? Or does it need to be cooked immediately?

    • I haven’t made this into a freezer meal however I wouldn’t recommend browning the patties and then freezing them for food safety reasons. If you do make a freezer meal, I’d suggest cooking the patties through or freezing it raw and then defrosting it before cooking.

      • I should think that as long as the meat had never been frozen before (because we know the rule that you can’t freeze,thaw,refreeze without cooking in there somewhere) that there should be no problem with brown then freeze. You would just need to know for sure that it had not been frozen. I have an extra fridge that will freeze things even on the warmest setting (I know but just keep water bottles and extra butter, leftovers, etc) but I know of very few persons with that problem.

        • It is actually safe to thaw and refereeze meat if thawed in the fridge (see USDA). Quality will likely be sacrificed, though. Fresh is always better, certainly.

    • This is my second time making this. We all loved it. My Granddaughter said these steaks are so moist and yummy. With mashed potatoes and peas perfect dinner.

    • I have frozen the Crock Pot Salisbury Steak leftovers and thaw them in the refrigerated part the day before I need. It turns out beautiful!

  16. What type of ground beef do you use? I know your recipe states to use lean beef but would like to know if you use ground round or ground sirloin.

  17. just put this in the crockpot, looking forward to supper

  18. I made this for dinner last night and it was amazing. I made it exactly like the recipe. It was so good that my husband literally licked his plate. Home run!

  19. This was so good. I will definitely make this agin:)

  20. This might be an odd question, but could I try and make this with ground turkey meat? Beef has become really heavy to me and I always feel sick after eating it, so I just always use ground turkey meat in its place

    • I haven’t tried it with turkey and although the flavor will be a little bit different I think it would work just fine.

    • The fat ratio in turkey is much different in ground beef. You should try to compensate for that with another type of fat. Juicy, tender beef is because of the 80/20 (lean ratio) beef to fat ratio. Raw ground turkey is lean. But maybe if beef makes you feel ill and turkey doesn’t, its because you can’t process animal fat well (like me). Maybe try to reduce the cooking time for turkey to avoid drying it out?

  21. I just made this for the family. OMG…it was delicious!!! It has moved into the top five of things that will be a staple in our lives. Thanks!!

  22. Question: what do you mean by Dijon? Dijon mustard? If so, can I use regular dry mustard or regular yellow mustard?

    I’m kind of an idiot lol! Thanks in advance!

  23. Will this feed a family of four with two teens or do I need to double it? Thanks!

    • It does make 6 patties but if the teens are big eaters like my son was you may like to 1.5x or 2x the recipe. The good news is that these reheat perfectly!

  24. Made this tonight for my family, the BEST Salisbury steak we have ever had!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  25. Made this tonight, turned out excellent. Thanks! Will be looking on your site for more recipes in the future.

  26. thank you so much for this. we are moving right now and this was just so yummy and comforting even with boxes all over the place and not being able to find a thing. so have to pass this on

  27. I don’t know what I did wrong maybe, but the patties came out kind of dry?

    • What type of meat did you use? Was it extra lean by chance?

      How long did your recipe cook for?

      • Can I keep it in low for around 8 hours since I will be at work or wI’ll they get too mushy

        • I haven’t tried it but I don’t think they’ll get mushy. If anything, depending on the meat you use, they could dry out a bit. If you do try it, I’d love to hear how it works for you as I’m sure others are wondering the same thing!

  28. Perfect comfort food for the cold weather we are having!

  29. Made this meal theis evening. It turned out very tasty. I had the setting on low as we would be gone most of the afternoon and it great to come home to a meal that was hearty. Thanks!

  30. One change I made is to use 2 cups of broth instead of 1 1/2. The gravy that it makes for leftovers was just not enough.

  31. if I double the recipe will it take longer to cook ? should I cook on high for a couple of hours then turn down to low for the other 3 hours ? I want to make this tonight for my large family … thank you in advance for your fast response :)

    • The cooking time should remain about the same. You could put it on high for the first 30-60 minutes just to help it heat a little bit quicker but other than that it should work fine.

  32. I made this last night and it was so good. Thanks for the recipe!

  33. Came out delicious!! Served it with mashed potatoes,macaroni and cheese,peas,and buscuits. Needless to say the hubby was happy. Thank you for the great recipe!

  34. I work and 5 hours will not be convenient. Is 8 hours too long (with 1 hour on warm?) or is 4 hours on warm better?
    Thanks!

    • I’ve only tried it as written. I think you’d be better off with longer on warm as long as your slow cooker keeps it at a safe temp. If you try it, I’d love to hear how it works out for you.

  35. I would like to make this but it will have to be in the crockpot for longer than 5 hours as I will be at work. Will this mess up the recipe?

    • I have only made this as written. If you do cook it longer, I would love to hear how it works out for you because I know others have had the same question.

  36. I made this recipe last night. It was a hit. It was delicious and my children loved it too. The parties were so tender. I will be making this again for sure.

  37. I’m currently cooking this now!
    I’m also counting calories.
    Does anyone have the nutrition facts for this?

  38. I see the ingredients now where is the recipe

    • Hi there, if you scroll down just a little past the ingredients, you will see the instructions! Thanks for stopping by!

  39. I made this today. I didn’t have time to crockpot it, so I used a Dutch oven, worked out prefectly. 350, 45 min. It was great. I love mushrooms so I used 24 oz… I would like to see if crockpot turns out the same. Def a recipe to make on a reg basis.

    • :) Thank you for sharing, I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe!

    • I made it the 2nd time in my cast iron dutch oven on stove top. It is great either way. Also, 2nd time I made double, Intending to freeze half but we ate it for lunch the next day ! It was voted right into the meal rotation after the first time and it’s what’s for dinner tomorrow!

  40. Just wondering if I can use regular unseasoned breadcrumbs. Thought I bought panko. Will it change the recipe? Thank you

  41. I made this today and it is awesome! So easy! My husband loved it. Next time we will try it with rice. We had red garlic mashed potatoes tonight. Will definitely be making this again!

    • I am so glad that your family enjoyed it Vicki! Thanks for coming back to let me know your thoughts!

  42. ONE OF MY FAVORITE DISHES! This is an awesome recipe! Super easy to follow and my family loved it..I will say I loved hiw I smelled the aroma coming from the frint door. Even guests smelled it outside before entering lol..GREAT RECIPE!! WILL DEFINITELY MAKE IT AGAIN.

  43. When is the brown gravy suppose to be added? It does not specify in the instructions.

  44. Loved the Salisbury steak recipe in the crock pot fantastic

  45. Is the clove of garlic for the beef pattie mixture diced? Doesn’t say so im assuming.

  46. Must try this

  47. This recipe is awesome, will never try another salsbury steak recipe; love it!

  48. Cooking for one right now and would like to freeze small portions. Have you tried freezing it after it’s done? If so, how was it.
    Sound great, I’m going to try it this weekend!

  49. If I use lean meat how long do I cook it? I need to cook it on high because I got a late start today.

  50. I made this a few day ago and my husband and I loved it! We don’t like mushrooms, so I left that out. I was a bit worried this might change the flavoring, but it was fantastic! I used 1 pound of ground chuck, and I did 2 cups of beef broth (from bouillon cubes) instead of 1 1/2, a little more than a 1oz package of gravy mix. This made a lot of gravy–plenty extra for mashed potatoes (which we made as a side). I did not use fresh onion. My husband dislikes big chunks of onion, so I used dried onion pieces and that worked fine! I also did not measure out the dijon or the ketchup, I did a squirt of each and it didn’t seem to be any difference to me! I used dried oregano instead of parsley. Anyway, all the tweaks and it turned out great, I can’t wait to make this again!

  51. I made this for dinner last night and it was an absolute hit!!! Even my picky mother said it was delicious. That’s saying something and this is now a new “favorite” meal. Being a slow cooker meal gives it an extra star. If you haven’t tried this yet, you must. The only thing I did different, is I replaced the Panko crumbs with 3 slices of whole wheat bread broken in med/small pieces and soaked in about 1/4 cup of milk. The patties just about melted in our mouths.

  52. I have made this several
    Times and my family loves it ! Very easy to do… I come home on my lunch break, get everything in the crockpot then by time I get home in the evening it is ready
    To eat.

  53. Found this recipe on Pinterest last night, it is in my crockpot as we speak, only been on for about an hour right now, but the aroma is so great already! I can’t wait to eat it tonight with my boyfriend. Mashed potatoes, a cesar salad and possibly some biscuits will be accompanying these patties. I am excited since I generally only use the crockpot on my days off so I can relax at home while dinner is cooking itself. :)

  54. I am new to cooking so I get lost very easily. When you say dijon can I use honey dijon mustard?

    • The honey dijon will be a little bit sweeter than a regular dijon mustard because of the added honey. I use either a dijon mustard without honey or a grainy dijon mustard.

  55. Oh my gosh!!! This is one of my FAVORITE slow cooker recipes. We serve it on a bed of of smashed red potatoes. YUMMMMMMMMMMM!

  56. I was wondering what is the difference between hamburgers with gravy and Salisbury steak? Ty

    • While this isn’t always the case, generally a hamburger contains only meat or a larger portion of meat while Salisbury Steak contains binders (egg, breadcrumbs etc.) However, they’re often used interchangeably.

  57. I’m making this tonight and using cubed steak. Coat the cube steaks with flour and brown them. Should be GREAT!

  58. I love Salisbury steak and love my crock pot. I will be trying this today. I know it will be delicious.

  59. Do you have one for swiss steak tomatoes and green sweet bell peppers?

    • I don’t have that recipe posted Carol and I haven’t had it in years! I am definitely going to have to dig up my old recipe to share on the blog, it’s a family favorite!

  60. I can’t get this to pin, can’t find the pin symbol to click on.

  61. OMGosh!!! This recipe is a keeper!!! 3 of us ate the entire recipe and my husband went back looking for more. There was only the delicious gravy so he made himself some “gravy bread” and ate that too! Great job on creating this one!!!!

  62. So.when you brown the patties, you dont cook them all the way through?

  63. Found this recipe on Facebook! I’m notoriously the worst cook ever :(
    This seems easy enough, so I’ve just put it all together in the crock pot!
    Wish Me Luck!

  64. Got it in the crock pot right now! Smells amazing! I used beef consume instead of broth so I hope it’s just as good! Thanks for sharing

  65. This reminds me of my grandmother! She always made Salisbury Steak on the stovetop (her recipe is very close to yours) and served it with baked potatoes and green bean casserole. I wanted to try a new recipe. Unfortunately I only had a tablespoon and half of catsup but otherwise followed the recipe. Mine was cooked perfectly in my slow cooker in 5.5 hrs on the 6 hr setting. After adding the cornstarch slurry, had to add about a cup more of beef broth to have a nice consistency gravy. Although I loved this old fashioned, my northwest family tolerated it (they prefer fish and grilled meat). I will make again once in awhile. Thanks for the recipe.

  66. I was wondering if it would work in a pressure cooker

  67. thank you sooo much for having this recipe printable….am making it this week

  68. Could I do this on high for 2.5 hours?

  69. What can a use as instead of mushrooms

  70. I love eating like this…out of a crock-pot…..the food is ready when you are
    minimal dish’s used….and it’s just as good the next day……flavors are mixed
    and matched and tossed around…delicious….delicious……tony

  71. Made this last night my husband sad it’s a keeper will be making again thanks for sharing.

  72. This is soooooo good. I have already made it twice. I have made it with just stew beef using the gravy part delicious. Thanks for sharing.

  73. This is a staple at our house! We love this recipie! Thanks!!!

  74. Thank you for your delicious recipe’s. I love slow Cooker meals always makes the home smell so good and Yummmmmy.

  75. Thanks for making this available, I do most of the cooking here and your recipes look good and are easy to follow.

  76. Looks so good

  77. Should the patties be submerged in the mixture inside the crock pot or should they just be laying on top?

  78. You could do all of the recipe in that skillet and eat in 1/2 hr.???????

  79. I wonder if you could make this with meatballs instead? I’m got meatballs I already made… anyone tried this? (My husband and son want this but love meatballs haha)

  80. This is an amazing recipe! My family loves it! Thank you for posting!

  81. I would recommend halving the mince with sausage meat as my patties didn’t stay together well otherwise. But it’s delicious :-)

  82. I love this recipe I will try this

  83. Made this last night. It was so good! Try it! I know this is a crock pot recipe but I had to bake it in the oven at 350 for an hour because of time. I modified the recipe a little bit. I added a total of 3 eggs to the meat mixture. I also added 4 cups of broth and 2 packs of Pioneer brown gravy mix instead of what the recipe called for because I wanted more gravy. Glad I did. We needed the extra gravy. This recipe was plenty for 4 adults. There were leftovers for work. I made buttered noodles for the base. No complaints at all.

  84. Just wondering instead of ground beef can cube steak be used? If so would I need to cook longer then the 5 hrs?

  85. I only have a small crockpot :/ but my husband really wants me to make this for him . Should I just half all the ingredients ?

  86. Was wondering what to do if you live in a place where gravy mix is not available. What can I use in place of it?

  87. Love your recipes. Thanks for sharing

  88. Made it today. thank you, it was yummy!

  89. I’m in the process of making this now!! I’m so excited to try it out! I used my parent’s meat loaf recipe to make the patties being that the recipe for yours is almost similar! Only difference is we use 1 tsp of garlic powder instead of minced garlic cloves and 1Tbsp of Morton Nature’s Seasoning instead of salt!

  90. I just made this. I’m waiting for the family reviews. I made the mistake of not putting the package brown gravy mix in at the same time of the broth. I added it with the cornscorn starch. Hopefully it will turn out just as good. Fingers crossed

  91. I have it in the crock pot now. Smells good already! I used ground Turkey in lieu of beef.

  92. Thank you very much! I will be cooking this today. We love slow cooker recipes.

  93. Has anyone tried this with round steak?

  94. Made thus today, so good!!;

  95. Making it tonight for supper. But on the stove since I work 10 hours a day. A slow cooker wouldn’t work for me.I tweeked the recipe alittle sine I didn’t have a couple of things. But it sir smells good. Ty

  96. I’m making this right now. Thank you for sharing it Holly. I’ll update with my thoughts after eating it.

  97. It sounds so good!!! Am trying it tonight!

  98. What type of lean beef do you use? I like using the 93%, is this one too lean?

    • I use an 80/20 mix (lean rather than extra lean). The 93% would be quite lean but I do think it would still be great. The patties get very tender in the slow cooker.

  99. Ok. After eating this, I’ll just say it was amazing! The ingredients cost about $15 including the potatoes. I made 4 patties, but there are only two of us in the house, so I have plenty for tomorrow’s lunch. I plan to make egg noodles with the leftovers.

    Make the recipe as written and you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you very much for sharing it. I am certain it will go into my go-to meal list forever.

  100. I made this for dinner tonight and I came out loooking like a Top Chef. My husband hardly came up for air and when he did it was to say yumm. He was really concerned though that there would not be enough leftovers, but I reassured him there was plenty since I doubled the recipie. Just a note- I added a tablespoon of the Dijon Mustard to the hamburger mix. I then threw in about 2 extra tablespoons of the bread crumbs. This will be added to the monthly menu with much happiness. Thank you for sharing.

  101. This looks absolutely delicious! This looks like my kind of comfort dish. I have got to try it. Pinned thanks for sharing!

  102. Could pieces of tenderized round steak be used instead of the hamburger patties???

  103. I have fixed this twice now and so good both times! I used ground buffalo in place of the beef and it was a great substitute! Mashed potatoes and peas made it a complete meal.

  104. I always stay true to a recipe the first time making & then if I make again, tweak to my own taste. Threw this together this morning (by the recipe) before work & we had for dinner! Omgoodness! Wonderful! No tweaking necessary! I wouldn’t change a thing! Delicious! (I cooked on low/medium for 8 hrs)

  105. OMG I made this last night except I used beef stew meat and added some spices of my choice: herbs de province, Italian seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, bay leaf and oregano. I used my Dutch oven to make this instead of using the cook pot due to time restraints. Served it over rice and my husband said this is his new favorite meal that I make he said it ranks up there with my spaghetti and meatballs! What a compliment. Thanks for sharing!

  106. Best ever had!!! Would like to take credit but the recipe was AWESOME

  107. You show spices but don’t list them in the recipe ? Could you tell us what they are ?

  108. Making the slow cooker Salisbury Steak, they have just gone into slow cooker and already smelling delicious

  109. I love my crock pot, but can this be made in the oven or on the stove top too?

  110. Wow, this looks delicious! I’m going to have try this! Thank you!

  111. In the crockpot now. Can’t wait to taste it.

  112. Made the Salisbury Steak today, we all loved I served it with mustard mashed potato. Well worth the wait. Will be adding this to my recipe folder

  113. WILL THE BROWN GRavy mix not thicken broth before done

  114. Yum yummy looking good American cooking!!!

  115. I’ve never made salisbury steak from scratch before so I like this recipe. I making it now (we are night people) but I don’t have 5 hours to wait for it to be done so I turned the crock pot up to hight and I’m hoping it is done in 2 to 3 hours.

  116. This one sounds great. Need to try it.

  117. Thank You, cant wait to make this. I love to cook.

  118. will i need to double everything if my meat is a little over 2lbs?

  119. Hello. It looks delicious . I dont know what the Dry gravy mix is. Can’t I cook this in a daily saucepan? Must I ise slow cooker? Thanks

  120. Awesome recipe.comfort food for sure

  121. Do you have a recipe without mushrooms my boyfriend and his brother that I live with don’t like mushrooms with is totally a fail for me because I love them and they won’t eat anything with mushrooms in it.

  122. I am going to make this today and I am so anxious to make it, looks so good :-)

  123. I am making the crockpot salisbury steaks but where do you put the ketchup abd dijon on top or inside
    The recipe sounds great but not very plain on where that would go
    Thanks

  124. This tasted great. But instead of having to remove the meat and then thicken the sauce, it is much easier to add a tbsp of quick cooking tapioca to the liquid ingredients and then pouring this mixture into the slow cooker at the beginning. The gravy came out the perfect consistency without any added hassle!

  125. Why only an egg yolk ? Can you use the whole egg?

  126. This was so delicious I am making it for the 2nd time. Only problem was there wasn’t enough for seconds! Thank you for the recipe.

  127. Thanks google

  128. Cooked this today. What a wonderful idea. So easy and sounds delicious.

  129. Can you use flour instead of cornstarch?

    • You will need to use about 4-5 tablespoons of flour. Please note that the flour will take longer to cook than cornstarch so you’ll also need to allow a little bit of extra time for thickening.

  130. Holly, do you possibly have a calorie count for this beautiful recipe per serving? My house smells amazing as I have it in the slow cooker today and would l Ve to have some but I have to be very strict with my intake.

    Thank you

    In advance

    Sue from Canada:0)

  131. I accidently combined all the ingredients at once I hope it don’t mess it up the lady at work made it and it was amazing though hoping it turns out just as good.

    • It should be just fine flavor wise. If you need to thin it out a tiny bit at the end, just use some extra broth. If you need to thicken it, just add a little more cornstarch! :)

  132. Can this be seared ahead of time and then all put together to freeze to put in the crock pot at a later date? New to freezer cooking and this recipe looks like it could be a great one!

  133. Just made this

    OMG Amazing

  134. I wish we could copy and paste these for future access

  135. Hi Holly, this was great, I enjoyed this thoroughly! But you need to leave clearer instructions for cooking noobies like me! I had no idea I needed to mix the corn starch in water before putting it in the slow cooker, so I ended up with giant chunks of corn starch floating around in the sauce :\ I’ll be making this meal often, thanks so much for sharing :)

    • So glad you enjoyed this recipe Jay!

      In step 5 the recipe mentions to combine the cornstarch with cold water, adding them together will definitely help eliminate chunks in your sauce.

  136. Fabulous

  137. Carmelizing the onions first gives a boost to the end results

  138. Sorry , I did not read all the comments so maybe you already answered?? I have 2 questions, and will admit I am a vegetarian wanting to make this for my hubby and father in law. .When you say lean ground beef is that 93%? or 85% or??? And what size ( quart?) crockpot are you using? I can tell it is an awesome recipe just hoping for a little more info…..thanks!!

    • I use 85% (and have used 93% as well). You don’t want too much fat in the gravy (but a little bit adds flavor). I cooked this in a 4QT slow cooker. Enjoy!

  139. Loved this recipe! Served it over egg noodles and all three of my picky children liked it. Would make this for company.

  140. this is the absolute best salisbury steak i’ve ever had. i wouldn’t change a thing!

  141. This is the second time I have made this recipe (Made it again tonight) and I used already made up hamburger patties, and It was a lot quicker prep time and didnt seem to matter either, it was still VERY tasty and Such a comfort food on this cool evening! I served it over Red skinned Garlic Mashd potatoes tonight and the family just ate it up! If you havent tried this recipe, DEFINITELY try it!! Comfort food at its best!!

  142. I’m making this tomorrow but I’m using a blend of Ground beef and venison!! I’m sure it will be delicious!! Love Salisbury Steak! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

  143. All I can say is omg! This was delicious! I made one alteration, I cooked in the crock pot on high for three hours. My one son does NOT like hamburger. So after mixing all the ingredients, I flatten the entire 1.5lb of mixed beef in a huge rectangle. I then cut down the middle and across twice, evenly spaced. I ended up with 6 square patties, and browned those. The meat mixture was so moist and full of flavor and since I didn’t make round patties, the combo convenienced my son that Salisbury meat is just a different cut off beef. He loved it. Thanks for the recipe!!

  144. Fresh mushrooms or canned? If I use fresh will it water it down?

  145. I made this for dinner . I deglazed the pan with 3Tbsp of Marsala wine and added it to gravy mixture. It was delicious !! Keep slow cooker receipes coming!

  146. Someone may have already asked this but what type of mushrooms did you use? Just saw this on Facebook and I am very excited to make this my husband and I love salisbury steak and I plugged it in to weight watchers and it’s even on my diet.

  147. Wondering how this would be with premade burger patties or with ground turkey?

  148. Hello, I work so I put this in the crock pot this morning however I only have 4 settings. High for 4 or 6 hours or low for 8 or 10 hours. I set it on low for 8. If it cooks that long are there any concerns? Thanks!

  149. What size crockpot did you use ? I have a 7qt crockpot iis that too large?

    • I have made this recipe successfully in both a 4QT and a 6QT slow cooker. This recipe is fairly forgiving so I think it would work just fine. You’ll just want to make sure you have enough liquid (and could always increase the gravy portion if needed).

  150. Can you do this on high and for how log?

  151. Excellent and oh so easy!! Thank you for posting!

  152. I will be converting this to low carb with just a small change. My husband has recently lost over 50 pounds going low carb and has a few more to go.

  153. This was yummy and very easy, two of my favorite food compliments. Highly recommend you try this. It has quickly become a favorite. I cook for one so this will easily be frozen in small packages for future meals.

  154. Tried this recipe and it was real good. Will make it again.

  155. Just put this in my slow cooker, only I used ground venison. I can’t wait until supper to see how it turns out!

  156. Can you cook it on high to reduce cooking time?

  157. In these recipes, some mention garlic, but never mentions it in instructions!

  158. I only have panko that says Japanese style, not plain. Is that ok to use?

  159. Excellent!

  160. What if I accidentally put the cornstarch in the water already in the mix do I have to add more water

  161. I’ve never cooked in a crockpot but this makes want to try. Question – what size crockpot are you using for this recipe?

  162. These recepies looks so delious. Am going too try, them!!!!

  163. I made this about a month ago! My husband has a condition where he can only eat soft foods he absolutely enjoyed it it was easy for him to eat!! Ty for this recipe

  164. Could regular hamburgers made be used on this receipe.

  165. Dry minced onions or fresh onions cut into minced pieces?

  166. Holly, when I put the ingredients into the slow cooker it looks dry. Is this what it should look like it needs more liquid.

  167. Made this today. Got rave reviews. Delicious.

  168. I made this recipe today. i used Herb and Garlic bread crumbs instead of Panko because I thought I had Panko and didn’t. I also the whole onion and the whole 8oz of mushrooms that I had. This was AMAZING, I can’t wait to make it again! It was REALLY easy and tasted delish!

  169. Made this tonight. I took the advice about doing it in a Dutch oven. I added some cumin, savory smokehouse seasoning and Worcestershire to the burger. I told my very picky 8 year old to try it and see if he wanted A1 or BBQ (he puts it on all meat) and he said it was yummy just like that. I think he had it gone before we were ready to eat and ate seconds!

  170. Love these recipes thank you

  171. Can you shorten the cook time if you start later in the day? I want to make this for my family, but I can’t start until about 3pm and 5 hours is a long time!

  172. I am assuming you used pinko crumbs and breaded the patties before browning?

  173. I have used this recipe twice now. This last time I used sliced sirloin tip and added 3 tbsp ofwhite balsamic and a teaspoon of real powdered wasabi to the gravy mix. I also substituted Chevril for the parsely.
    Can’t express how much better it was this time.

  174. Hi Holly I was wondering why you just use the yolk of the egg and not the whole egg ?

  175. Made this today, It’s delicious! We all loved it & will be making again, soon. Thank you!

  176. I do not have cornstarch…any subs available?

  177. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’m really not a good cook but these recipes look so uncomplicated, I really plan to use these,

  178. It isnt a favorite for my family…We ju youst tried this tonight, and I’m still looking for one my husband will like.

  179. Would there be anyway to use frozen sirloin patties? My husband bought a huge bag for some reason and I need something else to do with them beside regular burgers already. I normally make my own so I can season to taste but I definitely do not want to waste this large bag.

  180. I absolutely love this dish, I made it on top of the stove. I did not change a thing . This will be a regular at my house.

  181. Have you ever tried this without mushrooms? We are not fans of mushrooms, but I’m guessing that is an important part of the flavor.

  182. I’m allergic to mushrooms would this taste OK without?

    • Yes, it will still have a good flavor. I hope you get a chance to try it! Maybe you could add in a vegetable you prefer in place of the mushrooms?

  183. Thanks for sharing

  184. can you cook potatos in the crock pot at the same time for a complete meal?

  185. Yummy!! I didn’t have any beef broth so I used French onion soup. I’ll be making this again.

  186. Is browning the patty before really essential?

  187. This is the fourth recipe from your collection that I’ve made for my family. This one, was once again a success! Everyone loved it and it was fun and easy to make. Thank you again!

  188. if you want to double this recipe would it be recommended to use two slow cookers or can you layer the patties?

  189. All of your recipes are so yummy! Thanks for sharing them!!! <3

  190. It seems I never have enough liquid and the meat burns. Am I cooking too long or what? Thank you

  191. Made this today for my daughter and her husband. Doubled the recipe and brought home half for my husband. Everyone loved it! The gravy has such depth…so yummy. Served with mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts. Excellent meal. Thanks for sharing this delightful recipe.

  192. How can this be converted to make in an electric Power Pressure Cooker?

  193. I made this last night and it was delicious! My only issue is the strong onion taste from the burgers. It’s a bit strong for me. In your opinion, do you think it would work if I saute the onion before I mix it with the ground beef? Would this still keep the burger moist? The gravy was soooo good!! This is definitely a keeper. Even though there was the extra step of browning the burgers, this is a very easy recipe to prepare. Thank you.

  194. This was easy and delicious! I had more than 1.5 pounds of ground beef and it made 7 patties. My boyfriend ate it with mashed potatoes and greens. He loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

  195. going to try this looks delicious

  196. I’m making this for the third time. This is one of my favorite slow cooker meals, it has been on for about 4 hours now and the whole house smells terrific. Thank you for posting this recipe.

    • I am so glad you have been enjoying this recipe, Larry! I have to agree, it really does make the house smell fantastic doesn’t it? Thanks for stopping by!

  197. I love this recipe and will try it tomorrow. Thank You so much for posting it !!!

  198. What could I use instead of mushrooms the rest of the ingredients look delicious

    • If you’re looking for flavor, beef broth is fine. If you’re looking for vegetables, I would suggest zucchini or maybe even sweet potatoes.

  199. This was a very easy recipe and tastes great glad I tried it

  200. this is very tasty and simple, made 3 times and my 12 yo son and his friends gobbled it up, thank you

  201. Can you make the patties ahead of time and freeze them for future use? And would you brown them before freezing?

  202. Can you please share the nutritional facts on this recipe?

  203. What if by accident you already added the cornstarch, will it still turn out?

  204. Sounds yum. But I would like to see it without the brown gravy mix. The ingredients in the mix include a great deal of processed items. Real food is always best and better for us.

  205. Nutritional information please. These look so good. But I need the values please.

  206. Hi, I have made this once before and my family love it and want me to make it twice a week . Can I cook and freeze the whole meal then thaw the next week

  207. What if I am short on time? Can I cook it on high?

  208. Love this! I do add worstchesire sauce and tons of mushrooms!

  209. I made this today…so easy, and SO SO delicious!!! Everyone loved it. Not to mention how good the house smelled!!! This recipe is a keeper and will definitely be in rotation!!

  210. Could I cook this on high for a less amount of time?

  211. This recipe I absolutely amazing. I ran out of time and had to bake in the oven and it was fabulous!! My family loved it. I was super impressed for my first time ever making Salisbury steak homemade. Thank you!!

  212. I made the Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak last night and we absolutely loved it!

  213. This is so delicious it’s a definite save for the menu

  214. This was very good. Husband loved it. Thank you for sharing this.

  215. Sounds delish! Thank you!

  216. This is in my crockpot right now for tonight’s dinner.. can’t wait to try it. I’m making mashed potatoes and mixed veggies with it!!

  217. This was fantastic!! The meat was tender and held together perfectly. The dish was a bit salty but I love salt so it was fine for me. I sautéed the vegetables after searing the patties and skipped thickening the sauce. This is a definite repeat.

  218. I’ve just made this for the first time and it’s wonderful. My slow cooker is tiny (6 cups) so I made 2/3 of the recipe and it turned out perfectly and the gravy is heavenly. Fortunately I live alone so I’ll get to eat the rest over the weekend which is great as we’re expecting 3 to 4 inches of rain and this is awesome comfort food. I’ll be making it again and again! Thanks for a terrific recipe.

    • Nancy, it really is a perfect comfort food! Happy to hear that you love it. Enjoy and cozy up!

  219. How many calories and carbs per serving?

  220. With the instant pot, you can sear and cook both ! Love this, thanks for the receipe.

  221. With the instant pot, you can sear first on saute and and then slowcook !
    Love this, thanks for the receipe.

  222. I’ve got this in my Slow Cooker now!

    Thank you!!

  223. Your dish is absolutely delicious! How long will it last if i preserve the leftovers in the refrigerator ?

  224. This Crock pot Salsbury Steak is wonderful!!

  225. Use the same ingredients but forget the meat Use Chicken

  226. I tried your skillet version of this recipe tonight. Ingredients are minutely different but had purchased the items for the crockpot recipe, so I used those. I have to tell you this recipe rocks!! My hubs raved about it!! So it will become part of the rotation. Thank you for sharing!!!

  227. 7.4.2017…Cooking this recipe right now…. The broth for this recipe tastes amazing, can hardly wait till it’s done. Thanks for sharing!

  228. I have made this recipe three times. I really like it, I double the gravy, it has become one of my favorite recipes. It’s easy to make, and it tastes sooooooo good.

  233. Can I layer the patties in the crockpot ? Can I fill it up and still cook properly?

  234. My family loves this dish and are always asking me to make it followed recipe exactly turns out delious

  235. I found this  recipe   Delicious I only changed a few things to make it a little less salty .  Use a half a pack of Lipton onion soup mix ,  low-sodium gravy ,  and healthy cream of mushroom soup .  Makes all the difference in the world otherwise a delicious recipe 

  236. I have my widower Father-in-Law over for dinner every Sunday.  He just loves Salisbury Steak, so I have this all prepped and ready to go in the crock for tomorrow nights dinner.  I’m sure he will love it, he usually just cooks a hamburger with gravy for his substitute when he can’t get the real thing.

  237. Can I use a can of gravy instead of gravy mix(thought I had some in the house)?

  238. It was divine. The one change I made was I used a pkg of Au Jus mix instead of beef boullion. It was gobbled up. Thanks for sharing.

  239. Made this last night…yummy. We live in the SE and were dealing with hurricane Irma. It was cold and raining. This is a wonderful comfort food! Made mashed potatoes to go along with it. Will definitely will make this again!

  240. This was wonderful!! I doubled the recipe but didn’t have enough mushrooms to truly double, so I used carrots to supplement. This recipe was outstanding! The whole family loved it and we have leftovers! 

  241. My hubby is allergic to mustard. What do you recommend as a substitute?

    Thanks!!

  242. I hate Salisbury steak, at least I always have. But this recipe is the best thing to ever come out of a kitchen.
    My family is crazy for it, even my picky grand children !

  243. Turned out great

  244. I made this recipe and it was AMAZING. I skipped the water and cornstarch because the gravy was the perfect consistency right out of the crock pot. My family loved it and I will be making it again.

  245. This recipe is delicious, had it for dinner tonight

  246. Can you use just regular breadcrumbs?

  247. we love this but we use half and half on the meat. (ground turkey and beef)

  248. This is my family’s new favorite meal! The only thing I changed was that I use ground chicken instead of ground beef. Sooooo yummy. Thank you. I would love more meals ideas like this!

  249. This went well! Such an easy recipe, simple, easy-to-find ingredients, with lots of room to adjust to taste. Even a non-kitchen person like me could make this work. It’s a great introduction, too, using a slow cooker.

  250. supper easy and we loved it. will definitely make it again.

  251. Scrumptious

  252. Any suggestions—- any ideas as as substitute for the gravy packet? I’m making this for my parents who must eat low sodium.   Also, what’s the difference between beef stock & beef broth?

    • I have only made this as written. You could try a low sodium gravy packet.

      Stock is usually made more from bones and broth often uses meat. You can use them interchangeably in this recipe.

  253. I tried this recipe and it was good and tasty. My sons loved it.

  254. I Invited friends over for dinner and I made this recipe. I did not alter it. It was so terrible that I had to make something else. I kept the beef to try and incorporate it with something else but the sauce I thru out. Tasted so bad.

  255. I have all of the ingredients to make this. But I can’t find the recipe? Want g to make this today. Am I missing something???

    • Hi Wade,
      We apologize for any inconvenience! There was a glitch on the site which has now been fixed. Please let us know if you have any further trouble.

  256. I have made this a few times! .. My husband and myself love it!

  257. Can steak burgers be used?

    • While this isn’t always the case, generally a hamburger contains only meat or a larger portion of meat while Salisbury Steak contains binders (egg, breadcrumbs etc.) However, they’re often used interchangeably. While I have only made the recipe as written, I think it would work fine. Let me know how it works out for you!

  258. This recipe was easy and amazing!!! Full of flavor

    Rating: 5
  259. I’ve made this recipe 4 or 5 times now, but only used the slow cooker once. It works very well in the electric pressure cooker. The only thing that I do different is add 2 or 3 cloves of minced fresh garlic. Then again, I add garlic to just about everything.

  260. Love this recipe!!

  261. Does it have to be made into a burger patty shape or can i flatten it like a steak like the Banquet salisbury steak? 

  262. I made this recipe for Thanksgiving.Easy and my spouse loved it.
