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 patties together, and the egg adds moisture.

Mushrooms – Mushrooms add a rich flavor to the gravy. They can be replaced with extra onions if you’d prefer.

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 of Dijon mustard.

  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced onion, and cook stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until the liquid has been released and is almost evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the beef, ¼ cup beef broth, bread crumbs, egg, garlic powder, and black pepper. Shape into 6 patties, ½-inch thick.

  • In a separate small bowl, whisk the remaining beef broth, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, flour, mustard powder, and water.

  • In another small bowl, whisk together the remaining beef broth, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, flour, mustard powder, and water.

  • Place the beef patties in the same skillet over medium heat and brown 2 minutes per side. Add the mushroom mixture and the broth. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the beef is cooked through.

  • Serve over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.

Mushrooms: Use any variety of mushrooms in this recipe. Portobello, cremini, or white mushrooms all work well. Mushrooms can be replaced with extra onions if preferred.
Beef Patties: Homemade Salisbury steak patties can be replaced with frozen hamburger patties. Cook the beef to an internal temperature of 160°F.
Gravy Substitutions: 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard can be used in place of dry mustard. 
Seasoning: This recipe is lightly seasoned as the condensed broth has enough salt for our liking. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Additional herbs can be added if desired.  
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
