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. 😉
- 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.
