This quick and easy dinner recipe is perfect for any night! These Salisbury Steaks are tender beef patties, full of flavor and smothered with homemade mushroom gravy!
This Salisbury steak recipe only takes about 30 minutes to complete and goes perfectly with my quick and delicious Instant Pot mashed potatoes, a quick veggie like peas or green beans, and if you really want to spoil your family my one hour baguette!
I have a confession. For the longest time when I thought of Salisbury steak my first thought was the little frozen patties that come in a TV dinner…
In fact, they were the only ones I had ever had well into my adult life.
One day we were grocery shopping and while in the frozen food aisle my son asked, “Can you make Salisbury steaks?”
I knew you could but I never had. So, that day we found a recipe and gave it a try and realized that homemade Salisbury steaks are waaaayyyy better than the frozen kind!
Salisbury steaks are a great way to use ground beef. They are like hamburgers and meatloaf had a baby and then covered it in gravy, they are the perfect answer to what to do for dinner that is a little different!
The nice thing about them is that they don’t need anything fancy to make them, the ingredients are all pantry staples and so they make getting dinner together super easy!
Can you make these Salisbury steaks vegetarian?
This may seem like a weird question, because this is obviously a ground beef recipe!
If you’ve hung out with me before you may know that I am a vegetarian. I live in a house of carnivores so I often make recipes for them and tweak them for me (or eat something else entirely) and these were no exception.
You can easily make them with a vegetarian ground beef substitute. Not the frozen crumbles kind but the kind that is sold in the meat section like Beyond Meat. You’ll also need to swap out the beef broth for vegetable broth, and use a vegetarian Worchestershire sauce. Just swap them out and follow the recipe as written!
This recipe makes 8 nice sized Salisbury steaks, you can easily half it if you don’t need as many!
Now on to the recipe! Here’s what you’ll need to make Salisbury Steak-
2 lbs Ground Beef (I use 90% lean)
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
2 TBSP Onion Power
2 TBSP Ketchup
4 tsp Worchestershire
2 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 tsp Salt
For the gravy-
2 TBSP Butter
1- Large sliced Onion
8 oz Mushrooms sliced
2 Cups Beef Broth
1 TBSP Ketchup
2 tsp Worchestershire
1 TBSP Flour
In a large bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, onion powder, 2 Tbsp. ketchup, 4 tsp Worchestershire, eggs, dijon mustard, and salt. Mix together until well incorporated.
Now separate your beef mixture into 8 pieces and pat them into patties.
Now, in a skillet on med/high pan sear patties for 5-6 min on each side, then remove from the pan and put on a plate, cover with foil and set aside.
Now drain most of the fat from the pan (leave a Tbsp or 2). Then add in your butter, onions and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat about 10-15 minutes until veggies are tender.
Now whisk in your broth, ketchup, and Worcestershire, let simmer.
While that is simmering whisk together your flour and 2 Tbsp water in a small bowl or shake it in a jar making sure there are no lumps. Then whisk the flour mixture into the pan.
Bring to a low boil and cook a few minutes until thickened.
Now add your patties back into the gravy, spoon it over the top and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
They’re ready to serve! Place a patty on your plate and spoon gravy over the top for a delicious dinner!
