Classic Salisbury Steak

When I think of salisbury steak, this recipe has everything I am looking for.  It’s a filling meal especially when made with mashed potatoes.  It’s relatively cheap, being made with ground beef.  My husband has a huge aversion to mushrooms, so we choose a brown gravy with onions.  You may want to double the sauce if you are going to make mashed potatoes to go along with it.

This recipe serves 8, but you can easily cut it in half to feed less if need be (although it heats up great as leftovers).


  • 2lbs ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1c bread crumbs
  • 1ts garlic powder
  • 1-1/2ts seasoned salt
  • 1/2ts black pepper
  • 2ts Worcestershire sauce
  • 4tb butter
  • 4c beef broth – or- 4c water and 4tsp beef bouillon
  • 1-2 onions, sliced


  1. Mix together the ground beef, eggs, crumbs, and seasonings.  Form into 8 patties and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter over medium heat.  Add your patties, in shifts if need be, and brown each side for about 4-5 minutes per side.
  3. Set patties in a 9×13 casserole dish.  Preheat your oven to 350F.
  4. In the same skillet the patties were in, add the onion and cook it over medium/medium-low heat to caramelize.  This will take a while.
  5. When the onions have carmelized, sprinkle the flour in. Mix it in and let it cook until it begins to turn golden brown – about 2 minutes.
  6. Slowly add your beef broth or water.  Whisk.  If you are using water, be sure to add your beef bouillon at this point.  Cook liquid over medium/medium-high until it’s thickened.  Then pour over the patties in the casserole dish.
  7. Place casserole dish in the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until patties are cooked all the way through.

Serves great over mashed potatoes!
