This classic Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy is seasoned juicy beef patties simmered in a mushroom and onion sauce. Serve this comforting dish with potatoes or rice.
If there’s ground beef on the menu, I know it’ll be a hit with the masses. This versatile meat can be used to make Beef Stroganoff, Hamburger Soup, and Slow Cooker Baked Ziti for example. Yet that’s just a small sampling of all the meals you can make, of course.
Another simple yet oh so satisfying recipe that we make with ground beef, is Salisbury Steak with gravy. It’s one of those vintage classic meals that never go out of style.
Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy is quick to prepare (under an hour!), is inexpensive, and popular with kids and adults alike. It’s a vintage recipe that has been made for generations.
For those that don’t care for mushrooms and onions, they can easily be picked out too. I know, we all have those in the family!
How to Make Salisbury Steak
While you are frying the onions, mushrooms, garlic and butter on the stove top, you can quickly assemble the steak patties. The ground beef is mixed with bread crumbs, broth, egg and seasonings. You form to make round or oval patties.
The gravy is made with a mixture of broth, flour, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard powder. I also like to throw in a half-packet of onion soup mix for good measure, since I think it contains the perfect blend of seasonings.
Once the patties are cooked and it’s simmered in the gravy mixture as well as the cooked onions and mushrooms – the end result is the most flavourful and tender meat patties smothered in a rich tasty gravy.
Can you Freeze Salisbury Steak
Since this is such a quick and easy recipe to make, we tend not to freeze this one often. It never lasts that long! Yet you can freeze the cooked patties in gravy for later use. Just defrost and simmer in a pan until warmed through. Yet note: the freezing, thawing and recooking might change the consistency of the gravy. The taste will be the same but the look might be altered.
What to Serve with Salisbury Steak
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 cup mushrooms, washed and sliced
- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced

- In a frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter until melted. Add onions and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often to make sure they don't brown. Add in mushrooms and garlic and cook until butter has been absorbed and mushrooms are tender.

- In another bowl, combine the rest of the broth, flour, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, onion soup mix and water. Mix well until combined.
- When mushrooms and onions are cooked, remove from the pan and place the patties in. Brown for 2-3 minutes on each side.
- Place the mushrooms and onions back into the pan with the patties, and pour the broth gravy mixture over the top. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes or until patties have cooked all the way through.
