Homemade Salisbury steak

I had no idea how easy it was to make a great Salisbury steak until recently. For whatever reason, this seemed to me like it should be hard to make. I’ve found that it isn’t always the amount of ingredients that makes something difficult. There are been plenty of “simple” recipes that continue to stump me.

For this recipe I struggled with the gravy more than anything else. Figuring out how to caramelize the onions without burning them took me a few attempts. I’m still not sure that I could get it right the first time, but this is one of the dinners that I’ve made recently that will be added into the regular rotation.

Of course you could “cheat” and buy a gravy packet, (and I was tempted) but this gravy suits the steaks so much better. If you’re a fan of mushrooms, add some to the gravy when it is cooking and cook until tender. I finished off this dinner with mashed potatoes and peas which goes hand in hand with steaks.

Homemade Salisbury steak

  • Level: Easy
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 35 min

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • One big pinch of Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • (For the gravy)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, diced (2 cups)
  • 2 – 3 Tablespoons flour (2 for thin gravy - 3 for thicker gravy)
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1½ cups beef broth
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the (steak) ingredients and stir until well mixed. Shape the meat mixture into four patties.

  2. Pre-heat a large skillet over medium heat for about a minute. Add some non-stick spray or butter. Place the meat patties in the skillet and cook them for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until they’re well-browned. Remove the patties from the skillet and set them aside.

  3. Prepare the gravy:

  4. Add the chopped onions to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook the onions about 15 to 20 minutes or until they caramelize.

  5. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour for thinner gravy or 3 tablespoons of flour for thicker gravy over the caramelized onions and stir for one minute.

  6. Add the thyme and gradually stir in the beef broth and soy sauce. Cook for about a minute.

  7. Add the patties back to the skillet. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook the patties for 10 to 15 more minutes.
