Salisbury steak is one of those old school dishes, that you get a craving for once in a blue moon, but isn’t the best dish ever. I really just love gravy and if served with mashed potatoes, make sure to make LOTS of gravy.

Couple notes: its usually made with ground chuck or steak, but I used what I had. Also, both the hubby and I would have preferred the gravy from my Swedish Meatballs. I’ll put the recipe for the gravy I made, but just note that the meatball gravy would have been better. 😉


Salisbury Steak


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground sausage
  • OR 2 lbs ground chuck / steak
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce


  • Mix the above ingredients, form into oval patties (about 3" x 4") and set in fridge while you begin prep of the gravy. (I got 8 patties)
  • Fry a few minutes a side, flipping once, until cooked to preference.

Mushroom and Onion Gravy


  • 5-6 white mushrooms sliced and then chopped small
  • 1/2 onion chopped small
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • S&P to taste
  • Squirt of HP Sauce


  • Melt a couple tbsp of butter in a frying pan and add the onion and mushrooms. Saute until the onions are soft and the mushrooms have shrunk down.
  • Transfer to a sauce pan. Deglaze the pan with a splash of the stock and add that to the pot as well.
  • Start cooking the "steaks" in the frying pan at this point.
  • Add the stock and spices and whisk to blend.
  • Bring to a simmer.
  • Add thickening agent of choice, adjust S&P to desired amount.
