Salisbury Steak Recipe

Salisbury Steak Recipe
We’re cooking up Salisbury Steak with Onions and Gravy.  It’s one of those traditional Southern comfort food items you’ll find on the menu at Mom and Pop style restaurants and diners throughout the South.  Fresh ground beef, caramelized onions, and rich brown gravy make this one more delicious item to serve to your family and friends.  All you’ll need to make it even better are some mashed potatoes.  Now we’re talking!

Now, don’t go thinking this will taste like one of those cheap frozen dinners you might find in the frozen foods section of your local grocer.  Those little trays with plastic on top just can’t compare to homemade.  This one is just about as quick and easy to prepare…except for making the caramelized onions.  That takes a little bit of time but it will be well worth the added effort.

I must admit though, I’ve had my fair share of the imposters.  When you can buy a packaged meal with meat, gravy, mashed potatoes, corn and a brownie, all for one dollar, it’s difficult to not pop one or two in your grocery cart.  Still, I hope you will give this little recipe a try soon.

Some may claim this to be hamburger steak.  We’ll be adding a recipe for hamburger steak later.  Hamburger steak is usually not served with gravy like the salisbury steak is served.  Instead, it’s served as a fried or grilled meat patty and may include some grilled onions on top.  You can add your favorite steak sauce to it if you so choose.  It’s most often served with mashed potatoes as well, topped of course with…gravy.

This is a pretty straight forward recipe.  Just don’t rush the onions too much and it will be quick and easy.  We’ll cook up the patties first, caramelize the onions, and then simmer it all together in a rich brown gravy for about 15 minutes.  While that’s cooking, we’ll whip up some mashed potatoes and get ready for some real meat and potatoes Taste of Southern home cooking.  Ready?

Let’s Get Cooking!

 

Salisbury Steak ingredients
Here are the ingredients you’ll need.  I’m using Ground Beef Round in an 80/15 mixture.  I’m showing a two pound package in the photo, but I’m only using half of that in the recipe which will give me four servings.

 

ground round
I just divided the package in half and placed about one pound in a mixing bowl.

 

ground round divided
Use your hands or a fork to break it up a bit.

 

add some pepper
Begin by adding 1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper.  We’ll just go ahead and add the first few ingredients, and then we’ll mix it up.

 

add some salt
Add 1 teaspoon of Salt.

 

add some garlic powder
Add 1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Powder.

 

adding the worcestershire sauce
Add 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce.

 

add one whole egg
Add one whole egg, minus the shell of course.  (Smile)

 

add some bread crumbs
Add 1/4 cup of dry bread crumbs.  I used bread crumbs like mama always used.  I took one slice of white sandwich bread, and crumbled it up in my hands really fine.  It’s easier with bread that is a day or two old.  Of course, you could use store bought bread crumbs or even saltine crackers if you desire.  The bread just serves as a binder for the mixture to help hold things together.  We didn’t know anything about store bought bread crumbs around our house.

 

mix the ingredients well
Now, jump right in with both hands, and mix it all together.  I folded it, mashed it, squashed it, and folded it some more.  Just mix it all up well and have fun.  Cooking should be fun, so go ahead and squish it through your fingers.

 

shape the mixture into 4 equal patties
Divide the mixture into equal parts.  I made four patties from the pound of beef.  Shape it into patties, like you would hamburgers, only shape it into more of an oval than something round.  For some reason, Salisbury Steak patties always seem to be oval shaped.

 

melt some butter in your skillet
Place your “I Don’t Have A Paula Deen,” regular and well used skillet on medium heat.  Let it warm up for a minute or so, and then add 2 Tablespoons of REAL Butter.  Always use the real stuff instead of margarine.  It’ll just naturally taste better.  Ask Paula Deen, she’ll tell you.

 

add patties to the skillet
Place the patties in the skillet.  Don’t overcrowd them though, give them some space.  I could only get three of mine in at the beginning, but once they cook down some, I’ll add number four.  Let them cook for about 4-5 minutes.

 

split an onion
While the patties are cooking, let’s get started on the onions.  Begin by slicing a whole onion in half and removing the outer skin.

 

slice the onion
Slice each half into about 1/4 inch slices.  Set aside.

 

turn the patties
After about 4-5 minutes, you’ll start to see the bottom edge of the patties start to turn brown like the two in the upper right.  Now, you’ll need to flip them over, and brown the other side for about the same length of time.  They don’t have to cook all the way through; we’re just browning both sides for now, to seal in the juices.

 

adding another patty
Even with only a 15 percent fat content, the patties will shrink.  After I’d turned all three, I had enough room to add my fourth patty.  You just need to watch the first ones and don’t let them burn.  Take them out when they have browned completely on both sides.

 

remove from the pan
Remove the patties from the pan and set aside.  Again, don’t worry about them being cooked all the way through.  We’re going to continue to cook them some more in just a few minutes.

 

leave the remaining brown bits in the skillet
Don’t discard those brown bits left in the pan.  They are full of flavor and we want to save all of them.

 

add the sliced onions to the skillet
Place your sliced onions in the pan, right on top of all those browned bits.  Reduce the heat just a little, and let the onions slowly cook until they are clear and caramelized.  Don’t rush them.  Let them cook low and slow, stirring occasionally, until they turn nice and brown in color.  This step may take 20 minutes or longer, but its well worth the time.  If they cook too fast, they will burn, and you don’t want that to happen.

 

let the onions cook
The onions will start to turn clear or translucent, and then they will start to brown.  We’ll continue to cook them some more as the recipe continues.

 

sprinkle in a little flour
Now, sprinkle the 2 Tablespoons of Flour all over the top of the onions.

 

stir the flour into the onions
Stir the flour and onions together.  Then, let this cook for about 2 minutes longer to brown the flour.  If you don’t allow the flour to cook and brown at this point, you’ll get a raw flour taste in the finished dish.  Just keep stirring it for about 2 minutes.

 

add water
Slowly add 2 cups of warm water.  It’s just warm water straight out of the faucet.  If you were using a cast iron skillet, you’d never want to add cold water to a hot skillet as it could cause it to crack.    Stir the water and onions together.

 

adding beef granules for additional flavor
Add 2 teaspoons of beef bouillon granules.  I highly prefer the granules as opposed to the cubes.  The cubes always seem to take forever to dissolve.  You could certainly use about 2 cups of beef broth if you had that instead.  This will pump up the flavor of the gravy.

 

stir the mixture well
Stir the mixture well, and then bring the heat back up to about medium.

 

return the steak patties to the gravy mixture
Carefully place the meat patties back into the gravy mixture.

 

cover the skillet and let simmer
Cover the pan.  Let the whole thing simmer on medium or just a notch below medium, for about 15 more minutes.  They just need to simmer lightly and not be at a rolling boil.  You also might want to turn the meat patties over about half way through.

 

remove from skillet and serve.
After about 15 minutes, it’s all ready to serve.  Man, I’m hungry right now.  I’m a true meat and potatoes kind of guy and love this Salisbury Steak.

We cook a lot of dishes with gravy, or gravy and onions, here in the Taste of Southern kitchen.  It seems like most all of them just go best with mashed potatoes served as a side dish.  You could also serve them over a bed of rice if you prefer.  Add some whole corn or maybe some green beans, and a piece of cornbread, and you’ve got yourself a real meal for lunch or dinner any day….even on Sunday.

Enjoy!

    So, I found this recipe from google. I wasnt so sure about it considering I have a very VERY picky 2 year old who only wants what he wants. But it looked so good I couldnt resist. So I made it and it turned out FABULOUS! IM STUFFED! (just finished it as we speak!)

    I must say Im incredibly impressed with how it turned out! I also decided to carmalize Mushrooms with the Onions and it was fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. My hubby and 2 year old ate it faster then I could even get it on the table and sit down! Thank you so much!

  2. Erica says:

    5 STARS!!!! Made this a couple weeks ago & everyone loved it!!! My husband has me making it again today! He’s even running to the store right now to get me some more potatoes to mash and pour that heavenly gravy on top!! Thank you so much for sharing this :-) it is definitely gonna be one of our family favorites for years to come! & also I love that its real southern cooking ;-) being born and raised in Sweet Home Alabama..I really appreciate it..simple & delicious!!!

  3. Alison Libby says:

    Hi, just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed this. I guess I never thought much about Salisbury steak, I do other things with ground beef, meatloaf, Swedish meatballs, hamburger pie, Italian meatballs, etc., but this is a keeper. Easy to make and thank goodness no cream of mushroom soup. When I get to that point in a recipe, I keep on clicking. My husband, Steve, said this needs to go on the regular rotation. After 33 years, it’s hard to come up with something different that doesn’t take 3 hours to prepare.

  4. Tanja Collins says:

    Thank you for this recipe. It was wonderful. If I was so excited while cooking it, my husband might have assumed it was my recipe. But there were a lot of first for me in this recipe.
    I have never caramelized a onions, It was a first for me to make gravy from scratch, and I have never used beef bouillon . I annoyed my husband, because I kept interrupting his football game with my “omg babe I caramelized onions, babe my gravy came out great , taste this, how do you” , I was truly excited.
    As he ate his plate, he made a humming sound with almost every bite. And to put the icing on the cake, I looked up to see him licking gravy off his fingers. I was so proud. This was a dish that was for once, equally as good as his mamas meals.
    All I felt like saying to myself was “YES IN UR FACE MS. EMMA”. Lol . Believe me when I say, ur recipes will be something I am looking forward to cooking.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Tanja, Thank you for sharing your comments about the Salisbury Steak recipe. I’m happy that you jumped in and gave it a try, and super happy that it turned out well for you. Keep it up.

      I hope you and Ms. Emma are still friends. (Smile) I also hope you’ll get to try some of our other recipes. I’ll be waiting to hear how those turn out for you. I do appreciate your visits, and I hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  5. Alexander says:

    I live in a small town and they sell Wagyu ground beef. Used two pounds and made a double recipe. Wow was this ever great. The consistency was awesome.

  6. Melissa says:

    Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe! I was very pleased to find it as my usual recipe calls for canned soup and I’d rather use real ingredients and not cans of this and packets of that. Your recipe was easy to follow and tasted super! It got two thumbs up for my entire crew, so it’s replacing my old stand-by recipe and I’m very delighted about it.

  7. Elisabeth says:

    YUM!!! This recipe was easy and delicious, thank you! I was in a hurry, so I actually sliced the onions and got them cooking while I assembled the meat patties. When the patties were ready to go in I set the onions aside and picked up where the recipe left off when the meat was nearly done. It worked great time-wise. I also double the ingredients that make the gravy so we’d have plenty for rice and gravy on the side. I can’t wait to peruse some of your other recipes, Steve, and thanks again!

  8. Katie Weaver says:

    Thank you so much publishing this recipe. I loved Salisbury steak as a kid and tried to make after I got married. My mom is an amazing cook. But I never could get it right. I even tried packet gravy. Yeesh and yuck! I finally gave up after too many disappointments It just wouldn’t come out right. But after chancing upon your site, I felt the need to try one last time.

    Turns out I was doing everything wrong. Heat too hot, cooking too fast. I followed your recipe and it turned out beautifully! Low and slow did the trick, I followed your time suggestions exactly. I used my large electric fry pan so I could cook all the patties at once and avoid burning the butter. I used one cup of chicken broth and one cup of water which gave it a nice deep, rounded flavor. I only have better than boullion soup base and followed the equiviliancy suggestion. It was a little strong, so I think I will use a little less. But I wouldn’t change anything else. The texture and flavors of the meat and gravy were perfect!!

    A wonderful recipe! Something my whole family can eat. Which is a really big deal. My eldest has texture issues, which makes it hard to find something we can all enjoy. No gravy for him, just ketchup. :-D But he loved it! Mashed potatoes and green beans on the side. Fantastic!! I will recommend your site and recipe to everyone. Thank you and God bless!

  9. Gary Frakes says:

    Hi I have cooked this twice this week and my family LOVES it!!! I made an extra batch of the meat and made BBQ meatballs out of it,and I have to say it was awesome!!!!! Something you might try sometime!!

  10. Justin Anderson says:

    Saw this recipe and decided to make it at 2 in the morning. It smelt so good it woke my girlfriend up. Wonderful taste and easy to make. Like you said , it’s great with mashed potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!

    -Mr.Anderson

  11. Sondra Carter says:

    Good morning, Steve!

    Being a very old and experienced cook (in plain home-cooking) I don’t use many recipes from websites, and certainly have never commented on one so this is a first! I was looking for a new and different Salisbury steak recipe (my own never has been consistent or very good) and stumbled onto your website. I like the idea of this recipe, but I kept looking for the mushrooms. (Aren’t they a main feature of Salisbury steak?) But no matter; I think I can slip them in after the onions have sauteed awhile, but before I add the flour. Whaddya think?

    But my point of commenting is that I have browsed some of your other recipes and am favorably impressed – and for good reason, at least to me.

    1) You use basic ingredients that I, or most anyone, has on hand. Some recipes call for things that I don’t even know what are or what they add to the dish. But I do know how expensive some of these spices and herbs and “trendy” ingredients are, especially if I never use them again.
    2) You use common kitchen equipment that I have. Sorry, but I don’t want to put things in various contraptions to “pulse” x-number of times before adding something else and pureeing, and then putting the mess through some other machine, or using a “one-use-only”, expensive pan or pot specific to the recipe.
    3)You definitely leave some leeway in your recipes (such as the one I’m about to try).

    I’m probably much older than you, and I have said for years that while a cook may cook certain foods to please someone else, he or she cooks those foods to please himself/herself. (Don’t think I’m saying that very well, but hopefully you’ll understand.)

    In reading some of your recipes, I kept thinking “He needs to know this”, or “I should share this little trick with him”. But I don’t want to start making a lot of suggestions at this time.

    But thank you for a lovely place to browse and reflect.

    Best wishes, always.

    Sondra

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Sondra, I’m honored that you chose Taste of Southern to leave your very first online comment. That’s pretty cool.

      I appreciate your comments, and thank you for taking the time to share your kind thoughts about Taste of Southern. It’s just the home-cooking that I grew up… and out… with. (Smile)

      I’m always open to Comments and Suggestions. I never claim to know it all, just trying to share what little bit that I think I know. I do appreciate your visit and trust that you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  12. Lyle Gerard says:

    Salisbury steak is basically a technique to transform hamburger back into a steak. So, just to have fun, I shaped the patties like small T-bone steaks and after they were cooked, I cut a hole to fit a small onion ring that I pressed into the meat and filled it with horseradish sauce to resemble a bone and marrow. I didn’t put it back in the gravy, served that on the side. Was it ever clever – oh yes it was!

  13. Orea says:

    I’ve never made Salisbury steak;I’ve only had the ones in the TV dinners, sad to say. I wanted to try, so I was looking for what I call a “real” recipe: One that doesn’t involve packets of this and cans of soup. You know what I mean, a real scratch recipe where you actually know what’s in it. I tried this one the other night, and it was a winner! I added some mushroom slices to the sauce because they needed using, but otherwise stuck to the program. I loved it, and my husband said, “I’ve never had better Salisbury steak.”

    So, thank you! I’ll be making this often. I like hamburgers, but this beats them hands down. And I’ll be checking out your site for more good things to try. the whir you’ll be hearing will be my printer working overtime!

  14. Madison Ruffer says:

    Thank you thank you!! Iv’e never made nor had “real” Salisbury steak, I made this the other day and it is definitely mine and my husbands new favorite! Finally something new to do with ground beef! I used Panko bread crumbs, soy sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce (didn’t have any), and beef cubes (didn’t have the granules). I just mashed them up before I added them so they would dissolve easier! The caramelized onions definitely made this recipe, just thinking about it makes me want to make this again! That being said, even if you don’t like onions, DON’T skip them! They flavor it so much and end up being so soft you don’t even notice them! Thanks again for the awesome recipe, just added it to my favorites bar and am now going to explore your other recipes!

  15. Diana Dermid says:

    I’ve been married over 26 years and every time my husband wanted Salisbury Steak I am ashamed to say I would throw the Banquet brand in the oven. I used this recipe tonight for supper and guess there’s no more Banquet Salisbury Steak at our house. Hubby loved it. Think I’ll cut the onion down to 1/2 though and I also added mushrooms. Great recipe. Thanks.

  16. Crystal says:

    You have no idea how happy this recipe has made a pregnant lady craving salisbury steak! I haven’t had in at least 10 years but oh man! This recipe was good as grandmas. I didn’t alter a thing and it was perfect!

  17. Susan S says:

    Oh, oh, oh my was this ever GOOOODDDDD!!!! I had another salisbury steak recipe I’ve been making for years, but it just lacked something. So I came across this one & liked that it didn’t have ketchup & other different ingredients. Let me tell you…one bite from the family & I knew I found the perfect recipe!!!! It is so delicious and easy to make. My 10 year old son helped cook this & he loved it even more! The only change I made is I used beef broth instead of bullion & water, and increased the liquid to make extra gravy. So I had to add a bit of cornstarch/water slurry to thicken more at the end but that doesn’t effect flavor. And I cut back salt to 1/2t and it was still perfectly seasoned. Anyway, this is a keeper, and thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

  18. M Kristian Kummer says:

    Awesome recipe Steve! I had almost given up on trying another Salisbury Steak recipe and this was a home run!!!

  19. Debbie says:

    Well supper was wonderful. I doubled the recipe, but think that next time I will not double the garlic powder. Other than that, everyone loved the supper. Tomorrow night, little yellow squash fritters and fried chicken.y

  20. Debbie says:

    Steve:

    I found your web site yesterday and have been reading and cooking ever since.I am waiting on the salisbury steaks to finish cooking while the corn on the cob is cooking in the microwave. I have been cooking for over 45 years and have never made salisbury steaks except in those little microwave dinners. Never caramelized onions before. Your pictures and instructions are so easy to follow. Thank you for sharing.

  21. Annie Williams says:

    You must be a brother from another Mother, you cook like every G-mama and Auntie in my family and my friend’s families! I was gonna go buy a Salisbury steak dinner from my favorite soul food restaurant and something just made me Google for a recipe. I found yours and knew I had to make it. It was easy and way cheaper than buying a dinner, I have four dinners now! I used your recipe 99.9% exactly as written and only added mushrooms to my gravy. Made mashed potatoes and string beans as my sides. I am full and satisfied, thank you so much. I will definitely check out your site for more inspiration.

  22. Roselyn says:

    I found this recipe from a google search and am so happy I did! I followed the recipe to the letter (rare for me) and it was wonderful. I really like the “pace” of this recipe…cooking those onions long and slow sure made a wonderful flavor for the gravy.

    I love this site and have signed up for the newsletter. My mom was from GA and I lived in SC for a while. TX is great, but sometimes my southern taste buds need a little bit of lovin’.

  23. Kelly Collins says:

    I am making this tonight. I absolutely loved your clear, step-by-step photos and instructions. It left me thinking, I can do that! I can’t wait.

    • Kelly Collins says:

      It was amazing!! I followed your directions carefully and mine came out looking exactly like yours. That never happens for me, especially with internet recipes. I’m going to make it again tomorrow night at my best friend’s house….double the recipe though. They are going to love it!! Thank you so much for sharing.

  24. Just Trixie says:

    I’ve just found your recipe here and I can’t wait to try it. I love salisbury steak but most of the recipes on-line include canned soups. What????? Why not just eat those nasty frozen dinners at that point. Haha. I just wanted to leave a quick tip for anyone who may be having trouble with their sauce/gravy. You’re a lot less likely to get lumps in your sauce if you add room temp or cold water or stock to the flour and onions. I don’t know why, but once I learned that trick – I have perfectly lump-free sauces and gravies every time. :) Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  25. Momma Sharon says:

    Oh Lord, these were so delicious and mouth watering. Didn’t have quite enough ground chuck so I added some ground pork; used beef consume with some cornstarch for thickening. My daughter loves the TV dinner type and it was by her request that I make these. Now she wants them every night for supper! God Bless you for sharing your recipe with us!! I will now be making these for “special treat night” suppers. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  26. Natasha says:

    I wanted to say thanks for posting this recipe. I have been looking for a good recipe that’s also simple b/c I have kids and this is the one!!! So good. Everyone ate every last bite and let me tell you my husband and kids are picky. :) Thanks so much!!

  27. Jenny says:

    Out of all the recipes for salisbury steak, this one tops them all. For the life of me I could not find a recipe me or my husband liked, or even found easy to make. This one was not only easy, but it was melt in your mouth good! My husband asked me to make it again tomorrow! Oh the flavor explosion in my mouth! yum yum yum!

    Will keep this in my recipe box! Thank you so much for sharing it!

    xoxo Jenny

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Jenny, It’s my pleasure to share the recipe, and I’m happy to hear that you and the family enjoyed it. You must have given it some type of “special touch.” (Smile)

    • I'am MrsGraham says:

      I also made this tonight, a HUGE hit!!!!! So glad I found this

    • Shawnnaa says:

      This was very delicious! I have tried other recipes and this one is definitely the best. for some reason I didn’t have as much gravy as u did in ur photos, but maybe because I had a lot of onions. I will most definitely be making this again. Thank you!

  28. jasmine P says:

    Thank you for posting this recipe. I was browsing the web for salisbury steak recipes but there wasn’t much with a lot of reviews from people that said it was delish. I made this today and it was great. Definitely a different taste to it. I used seasoned breadcrumbs and college inn brand beef broth. However, the gravy wasn’t thick at all and I really wanted it to be thick. Any suggestions? Thank you

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Jasmine, I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern, and that you tried our Salisbury Steak Recipe.

      You could try adding a little corn starch or flour to the broth towards the end of the cooking cycle. That should help thicken it up a bit for you. You might even cut back a bit on the amount of broth you use should you try the recipe again. I hope this helps.

      Thank you for your question and for your comments. I do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  29. Dianna Miski says:

    I lost the recipe I usually use and yours is very close to it except mine has wine in the gravy and ground mustard in the meat. Thanks so much. I didn’t care for the other sites as they used Lipton onion soup and ketchup in the meat ugh! Have a great day.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Dianna, I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern and that you enjoyed our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m sorry you lost your favorite recipe, but I’m happy that you found ours and gave it a try.

  32. Angela says:

    My son wanted Salisbury steak for dinner, and I had never made it before. Yours was the recipe I chose from the online search. I’m on the last step now….if it tastes even a fraction as good as it smells right now, I’m about to have a very happy family! Thank you for the great recipe.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Angela, I do hope the Salisbury Steak turned out “as good as it smells.” I hope you’ll come back and let me know. I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern and chose our recipe to try.

  33. Sharon says:

    Thank you for all the wonderful recipes, and such detailed directions. I made the Salisbury Steak using your recipe and it turned out delicious! My husband said it tasted like his Mom used to fix it, and that is high praise indeed :)

    I’ll definitely be making this again, and again…

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Sharon, I’m thankful you’ve found Taste of Southern and that you’ve tried several of our recipes. Thank you for the compliments from you and your husband regarding the Salisbury Steak.

  34. tina says:

    This is the best salisbury steak recipe I have ever had, and my husband and family are very picky eaters so that’s saying a lot.
    Thumbs up to the chef.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Tina, Thank you for the compliment on the Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m really glad you decided to make it and happy to hear that the family enjoyed it. I appreciate your comments and do hope that you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  35. Shaun says:

    I made this resipie this very evening but used ground venison from this years dear season, served with mashed potatoes and sweet corn. My wife asked me if it was beef or venision because she couldnt tell. really great resipie I will be using again and again.
    Thank you for the great meal.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Shaun, It’s my pleasure to share the recipe, I’m just happy that it turned out well for you. Sounds like you know how to cook that venison without my help if your wife couldn’t tell the difference. Everybody can’t cook it as well.

      I must admit I’m a bit reluctant to eat the venison meat. Tried it once and it tasted OK. Just not on my bucket list of things to do. Glad you had a good season with it though and that you’re putting the meat to good use. Make your own sausage as well? Thank you for your visit. I do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  36. Kathey says:

    Hi Steve,

    I’ve been looking for a Salisbury steak recipe for the longest! Although I am trying to go meatless for awhile I decided to do something different with the remaining ground beef in my freezer. I came across your website and recipe and was happy to see the visual aids included, especially since I’m a visual person for the most part. I made it and was thoroughly impressed and proud of myself!!! Not bad for my first time and I truly enjoyed them. Although I followed the recipe to the T I think next time I’ll cut back on the black pepper and Worcestershire sauce a bit because it was a bit to spicy for me. Other than that they were on point!!! Thank you for your easy to follow recipes… Any chance you know the nutritional values for this meal?

    God bless you!

    ~Kathey

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Kathey, Thank you for your compliments on our site and for your question. I’m sorry but I don’t have any type of info as far as nutritional information would be concerned. It’s just Southern… and therefore GOOD. (Smile)

      I’m really thankful that you found Taste of Southern and that you were willing to try the Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m happy it turned out good for you, just sorry to hear it had a bit more pepper than you prefer. I do hope you’ll try it again.

      Keep up the good work. I hope you’ll find some other of our recipes that catch your interest. I appreciate you taking the time to share your comments and do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    Oh my lord, these were good! I’ve never made Salisbury steak before and always wanted to try it. Your recipe is simply the best. It’s easy to follow and I had most of the ingredients here at home. Thank you for sharing! I will most definitely be making this again!

    I had to triple the recipe because we have 6 kids. This was such a winner. I couldn’t find ground round so I just used ground chuck. It was so so SO good

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Katherine, Thank you for trying out Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m glad you liked it and hope all those 6 kids did as well. That’s a pretty big family you’ve got there. How do you even find time to leave a comment on our website? (Smile)

  40. Nurse Sara says:

    I made this recipe last year and it was delicious!!! I would like to drain the fat this time around for healthier reasons and cook the onions down in a little beef stock, or french onion soup. Will let you know how it turns out!
    Thanks for a delicious staple,
    Sara

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Nurse Sara, Congratulations on your chosen profession of Nursing. Best of luck with that. I do appreciate your comments and I’m happy to hear that you’ve tried our Salisbury Steak recipe.

  41. Melissa says:

    Thank you so much for this quick, easy, and tasty recipe! I have 5 boys (ages 3-17) and a husband to feed and they all loved your recipe. My very picky 5 yr old said I could make this everyday for him. I especially liked that you used pantry staples instead of soup mixes. Thank you again. I’m adding this to my recipe file.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Melissa, Thank YOU for your very kind note and compliments about our Salisbury Steak Recipe. Give that 5 year old a big hug for me for liking the steak so much. It’s my pleasure to provide the recipes, and comments like yours just make my day. I really appreciate it and thank you for your visit.

  42. Pete Kalin says:

    Hi again Steve. Pete here from Woodstock Ontario. I made a 3 pound batch of these last night. Our three kids don’t like onions so I used one pan for onion gravy and the other one just plain. And for lack of space I put the 13 steaks in 2 glass dishes and covered in foil and put in oven around 45 minutes at 275. Wow everybody loved it and all were gone. I served with corn and those mayo mashed potatoes as well! I really like meatloaf but this will be what I will be making instead now! Going to try the banana pudding tonight and I’ll let you know how we do with it.
    Til Later

    Pete

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Pete, Greetings to Woodstock Ontario from North Carolina… again. I’m really glad that you’re trying some of our recipes and happy to hear that you and the family liked the Salisbury Steak Recipe. Keep up the great work. And, do let me know how the Banana Pudding turns out for you. I hope you’ll use whole milk and get that pudding to thicken up for you. I’ll be waiting for a report.

      Thanks again for your comments and for your visit today. Be sure to stop by again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  43. Debbie Brown says:

    Just finished making and enjoying this! I followed your directions to a “T” and hit it out of the park. My husband loved it and has already requested to have it again. I had no clue what I was going to make with the ground beef I pulled out late in the day, because I had forgotten to take something out in the morning. You and your recipe saved the day. Thank you :)

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Debbie, I’m thankful you’ve found Taste of Southern, and very happy to hear that you and your husband enjoyed the Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m glad we could help. I appreciate your comment, perhaps it will encourage someone else to try the recipe as well. Thank you for your visit and do be sure to stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  44. Sasha says:

    You can’t have an 80/15 ground beef lean to fat ratio. That would only be 95%. You must have either 80/20 or 85/15.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Sasha, I’m thankful that you found Taste of Southern and that you have such a keen eye on our Salisbury Steak Recipe. The remaining 5% is “mystery meat.” That helps keep the taste interesting, trying to figure out what you’re chewing on. OK, I’m kidding. My apologies for the typo. I’d change it, but then, no one else would have any idea of what we were talking about in this comment. It was very observant of you to spot it, and I’ll try to do much better from now on. Forgiven?

      I appreciate your visit and do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

      • Big Mike says:

        Thank you very much for the delicious recipe.Easy to follow.You made me look like a pro! I didn’t have any Worcestershire sauce.Had to sub a little soy sauce.It worked out fine. And I totally forgot to add the garlic powder.Nevertheless,my wife and I loved it last night.Had leftovers for lunch today.I’m your new biggest fan. I’ll be back to learn more from you later! Bet on it.

        • Steve Gordon says:

  46. Denice says:

    Made Salisbury steak for the first time tonight for my family. Don’t know why I haven’t made this before. Also the peas were new to us for dinner. My mom didn’t like peas so we never Had them. So i guess i don’t think about making them for my boys and hubby. Anyway, I came across your recipe and followed it. it was amazing! Thanks. The whole family loved it!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Denice, I’m glad you liked the Salisbury Steak Recipe. Thank You for trying it. I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern and do hope you’ll continue to visit with us often. Thanks for trying some of our other recipes as well. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  47. Valerie K. says:

    I read your recipe and it is almost the same as mine. I saute sliced portabello mushrooms with the onions to beef up the sauce, use Campbell’s Beef Consumme diluted to make two cups, put the Worcestershire sauce in the gravy and thicken with cornstarch, We just had it yesterday with mashed potatoes,peas and carrots and rolls. :D

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Valerie, Thank you for your comments on our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I like mushrooms, so the addition you mentioned sounds good to me. Hopefully, you’ll find some of our recipes you’d like to try. I’m thankful for your visit and hope you’ll stop by again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! – Steve

      • Jennifer says:

        WOW!! What a delicious recipe! I pulled out ground beef from the freeze to use with my 1/2 Jimmy Dean Italian Sausage (had 1/2 a package left over from last night’s spaghetti), with no idea what to make…I’m so glad I stumbled across this recipe! Other than adding 1/2 (bulk) sausage, and a lil Everglades Seasonings, I followed this recipe to a “T”! Our dinner table was completely silent, as my hubby, 7 & 3 yr olds practically licked their plates clean! Definitely will add this to our weekly dinner rotation! Thanks!

        • Steve Gordon says:

          Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your comments and compliments on our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I like the addition of the sausage, although I’ve never tried it. I do have a recipe coming soon for a meatloaf that uses sausage with the ground beef. That turned out good and I hope to post it soon. I’m glad you were willing to try the recipe and make it your own. So happy that the family enjoyed it, loved the comment about the table being “silent” while everyone ate.

          I appreciate your comments and do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  51. will says:

    delicious. couldn’t remember mom’s recipe, and she’s not around, anymore, to ask. channeling mom in the kitchen, with this recipe, resulted in some full kids.

    thanks a ton, i’ll be checking back in on your guys soon. thanks for using ingredients, and not soup mixes!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Will, I’m thankful you found Taste of Southern and tried our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I hope it was at least a little bit close to what your mom made, and that it brought back lots of good memories for you. I’m glad you liked it.

  52. Amy Warner says:

    Hi again, Steve!
    My husband has been in a bad mood for a couple of weeks now. Not fun to live with, if you know what I mean. Prayed about it and decided to make your Salisbury Steak recipe again. The man always thanks God for the food before eating it, but tonight he said something different–“Thank you, Lord, for a great meal.” BEFORE HE TASTED IT. He’s been in a good mood since he smelled it cooking. Hoping the effect lingers for a few days. If not, I’ll have to try another one of your recipes… Perhaps the Liver and Onions next. :) So thankful for you!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Amy, It’s really true, “the way to a man’s heart, is through his stomach.” You made me laugh when you said you “prayed about it” and decided to make the Salisbury Steak. I’m glad we could help out, and that your husband is now a happy camper. YES, do try the Liver and Onions on him real soon. Keep him happy. (Smile)

      Thank you for sharing your comments and I do hope you’ll visit with us again… real soon. Any snow yet in Ohio? Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  53. Jayne says:

    This recipe was exactly what I was looking for, from scratch and no packaged onion soup packets used like many other sites that I’ve seen. First time coming across your website and sure glad I did. I made this recipe for dinner and it was just wonderful and perfect. Great recipe instructions with illustrations. The flavors were right on, though I added some mushrooms to my liking it was great too. I’ll be sure to check in trying your other recipes too, thanks a bunch.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Jayne, Thank you for your comments and compliments on our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m thankful you found our site and very happy to hear that you tried one of the recipes. Do let me know when you try something else and please stop by for another visit… real soon.

    Steve, We love the Salisbury Steak recipe! Best we’ve ever had. My husband is hard to please in the culinary field. (He is a much better cook than me.) So I try hard and often fail. This recipe is a winner though. He requested it again tonight and I love the compliments he gives me. It makes me thankful for you! I’m ready to try the Praline Apple Bread recipe now. God bless you! Keep cooking and sharing!

  58. Crystal says:

    Hello! I’ve only recently discovered your site and this is the first recipe I’ve tried. I wasn’t intending to make salisbury steak that night – having only the frozen boxed variety in the past I wasn’t real fond of it. Well, I happened to have the ingredients on hand and decided to give it a go AND am I happy for it! My family loved this recipe. I followed your instructions step by step and it turned out to be delightful. You’ve created a salisbury steak fan!

    I am looking forward to trying many of the other recipes in your collection. So many of them look so yummy.

    Thank you & be well!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Crystal, Welcome to our newest Salisbury Steak fan. Ha!

      I’m very happy to know that you tried the recipe and just as happy to know that it turned out so well for you. Perhaps your comments will encourage someone else to give the recipe a try.

      I do hope you’ll try some of our other recipes and keep me informed on how they turn out as well. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and do visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

      Thank you so much for this freaking awesome recipe! I am so stoked!

  59. Jennifer Jenkins says:

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was a huge success. I love how easy to follow the recipes are and that step by step pics are included. I can’t tell you how many times I have been making something and wondering if it’s suppose to look this way, lol. My mother-in-law, husband and 3 yr old (minus onions, of course) all give this 2 thumbs up! Will be making this again very soon. Looking forward to making your salmon patties tomorrow.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Jennifer, Thank you for sharing your comments about how the Salisbury Steak Recipe turned out for you. I hope it will encourage someone else to give it a try and I’m very happy to hear that your family enjoyed it. Two Thumbs-Up is pretty good isn’t it?

      I’ve experienced the same thing with trying new recipes, wondering if I’m doing it right and should it really look this way. I hope visitors to Taste of Southern realize that ALL of our recipes are tried and tested, and any time someone like yourself leaves a comment, it just verifies the recipe. So, Thank You for doing that.

      Sure, I can still have a mistake in it somewhere along the line but we try to be as accurate as possible. I type up the printed recipe first, cook it and take the pictures following my own instructions, making changes as needed along the way.

      I do hope you might try some of our other recipes as well and I’ll look forward to hearing from you again soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  60. AMANDA says:

    I found this recipe from an internet search and decided to give it a try. It was so easy and fairly quick. I did make a slight change though. I had no Worcestershire sauce in the house so I googled substitutes for it. I found many but ended up mixing two of them to get what I hoped was a close flavor match. I mixed some malt vinegar I had with some honey hickory bbq sauce. Also I in true chef did not measure my seasonings but I can tell you the flavor came out great! I will definitely be making this one again. Seeing as my family gobbled it up like they hadn’t been fed in weeks.

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Amanda, I’m very thankful you’ve found our site and that you tried the Salisbury Steak Recipe. I like the way you made it your own with the changes. That’s what cooking and trying recipes is all about. Happy to hear it all turned out well for you and I do hope you’ll visit with us again… real soon. Keep up the great work. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  61. Elena says:

    Made the Salisbury steak for dinner tonight and it was amazing and easy to make!! Kinda hope the gravy would have been richer but it was fabulous!! Thank you from the recipe!!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Elena, I’m thankful you found the recipe and that you were willing to give it a try. Perhaps a little more beef broth, or a little less water, maybe cooking it down until it’s a bit thicker would better suit your taste next time. Keep working on it and make it your own, you can do it. I’m so glad you took the time to share your results with us and I do hope you’ll visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    • Chameka says:

    Best salisbury steak recipe i’ve tried cooking! All the other recipes i had used doesn’t even compare to this one! Thank you for sharing! I make this every two weeks just so my family won’t get sick of it. But if it was up to me i would probably make this a couple times a week. My fiance and his kids eat this with rice. Me and my kids eat it with this garlic mashed potatoes that i make myself. Again… Thank you so much for sharing made our tummy’s happy!!!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Rae-Ann, Thank you very much for such a nice compliment on the Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m with you, I could eat this a couple of times each week myself.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I have one question, my boyfriend doesn’t want me to use any onion so I will be skipping that step, do I still need to add the 2 cups of warm water or just skip down and add 2 cups of beef broth and simmer for 15 minutes?

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Samantha, If you skip the onions, you’ll be missing the best part, they add so much flavor to the recipe. Of course, I guess if he doesn’t like them… he just dosen’t like them. I added the 2 cups of water because I was going to add the Beef Granules which in turn… makes my beef broth. If you’re using a pre-made beef broth, like what you find in the containers, you would not add any water and just go ahead and add the prepared beef broth. I hope I’m understanding your question right as opposed to adding more confusion. Maybe you could add some Onion Powder to give it a little flavor without the actual onions… unless he just totally doesn’t like the taste of onions that is. I hope it turns out well for you, minus the onions. I’m glad you found the recipe and that you’re willing to give it a try and “make it your own.” Let me know how it turns out and I do hope you’ll stop by for more visits with us… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    Looking forward to making this soon, especially with the caramelized onions. I’ve made something similar but baked, and I think this will be much better – I’ll let you know how the hubs and I like it! I’m also planning to use your Banana Bread with Crumb Topping recipe this weekend. So many great recipes, so little time! Thanks for the site :)

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Missusmidas, I’m looking forward to hearing how the Salisbury Steak recipe turns out for you and your “hubs.” I really think you’ll like both the Steak and the Banana Bread if you’ll give them a try. Do come back and share your results with us and, do stop by for more visits… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    I tried this recipe for dinner and it was a hit!! Seriously, the flavor was amazing; MUCH better than those little frozen dinners you can buy at the grocery store. I used beef broth and made my own bread crumbs with a slice of wheat bread. I also added a pinch of corn starch to thicken up the gravy a little and served it up with fresh mashed potatoes and corn. And your instructions for caramelizing the onions were brilliant. I’ve never caramelized onions before but they came out great!

    Thank you so, so, sooo much for all the hard work you do for this website. It’s so difficult to find great recipes and it’s just wonderful to have this resource for ideas. You truly are the BEST!!!

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Nicole, Thank you for your comments, you’re making me blush. Ha! I’m glad you found our recipe and delighted to know that it turned out well for you. All that talk about mashed potatoes with gravy and onions has made me want some myself. Don’t you just love caramelized onions? Thank you for giving the recipe a try and for taking the time to share your comments. I greatly appreciate that. I do hope you’ll stop by for another visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

    This was great! Thank you for providing such a tasty recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and it tasted wonderful. I picked this recipe to use because it reminded me of my father’s recipe. I have also made this using ground turkey with great results. Lately, I have been using chicken breasts that I lightly flour and cook in a combination of oil and butter and I complete it the same way I would the salisbury steak. The only change was I added some mushrooms and white wine to the roux. It was a hit at dinner time :)

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Mari, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about our Salisbury Steak Recipe. I’m glad you gave it a try and that it turned out well for you. I haven’t tried this with ground turkey but I could certainly see how great that might work. Good idea. Mushrooms make about any meal better don’t they? Thank you again, I’m glad you stopped by and hope you’ll visit with us again… real soon. Be Blessed!!! -Steve

  73. ann-marie says:

    This was the first time using any of your recipes and it was great. I used beef broth,and added mushrooms w/ the onions. I also added a little bit of cornstarch at the end to thicken gravy some. Everyone like it and even the leftovers were good for lunch today, thanks for the recipe and I’ll be looking for more by you soon :)

    • Steve Gordon says:

      Hi Ann-Marie, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe and the addition of those mushrooms sounds really good too. I’ll have to remember that. I do hope you’ll give another recipe or two a try. I’ll look forward to you coming back to see us again real soon. Be Blessed!!! –Steve

    This was so good that my family literally had me make it two days in a row! Thank you!

      Wow Tonya, you must have added some secret ingredient of your own to the recipe. That was too funny. I’m really glad that you tried the recipe and, that you family enjoyed it that much. That’s always good news to hear. Thank you for sharing your comment and I do hope that you’ll come back to see us again real soon. Be Blessed!!! –Steve

  75. Dee Huntley says:

    Steve, these were the absolute best Salisbury steaks I’ve ever made. For years I had used a recipe that my family loved. Changed it up this time and we were all pleasantly surprised. This took “comfort food” to another level. Served it with mashed potatoes, sweet corn, and buttered rolls. Yum! Will definitely check out more of your site. Blessings from Maryland!
