Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy

My easy Salisbury steak is my family’s favorite. The tender juicy beef patties are simmered in a rich and flavorful homemade brown onion gravy. Make this recipe your no fuss anytime meal! Perfect a side of !WHAT IS SALISBURY STEAK?

Salisbury steak isn’t a steak, it’s basically fancy version of a bun-less hamburger that is simmered in gravy and traditionally served with mashed potatoes. I hated it as a kid, but now I can’t get enough of it.

Brown foods scared me back then. The tv dinner version scared me even more. However, I loved the teeny brownie that came with it. That sure was a good brownie. I make salisbury steak at least a couple times a month. It’s one of our favorite classic meals. It’s the best comfort food ever!

Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy

This recipe uses everyday staple ingredients which include, ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, garlic powder, onions, Worcestershire sauce a pinch of celery salt and chopped parsley.

You can’t have salisbury steak without a rich and flavorful gravy. You need a gravy that comes together quickly with big flavor. The rich gravy ingredients includes my trusty, Better than Bouillon beef base, flour, heavy whipping cream and butter, salt and pepper is all you need to make it. Oh and A pinch or two of seasonings.

You won’t believe how simple it is. It may seem like a lot of, so I broke down the steps so you can make salisbury steak easily.

1. Dice the onions and saute over medium high heat. *See notes

2. Add white bread to the food processor and process into bread crumbs.

3. To a large bowl add the ground beef, onions, eggs, seasonings, onions, breadcrumbs and combine gently. Do not overwork the beef, it will become tough. Shape the beef mixture into a round or oval shaped patty. FYI, If you noticed the pics show the circular patties and the oval shaped ones. I make this so much, I figured I’d snapped two different photos.

4. Sear each side of the beef patty until it’s browned with a nice crust. Remove beef patties from the skillet and drain the fat. *See notes in the recipe.

5. To make the slurry which thickens the gravy, Whisk the beef broth and flour in a small bowl until lump free. Over medium- high heat add the slurry to the skillet. Add the heavy whipping cream and the rest of the butter. Mix well. Add the beef patties and the remaining diced/sliced onions into the skillet with the gravy.

Let it come to a boil and cook for 5-15 minutes or until cooked through. Add two small pinches of onion powder and garlic powder to the gravy. Then add very small pinch or two of crushed red peppers, salt and pepper to the gravy for taste. Mix well. I use a spoon to stir the gravy in between the patties. Serve with smashed potatoes.
