Homemade Salisbury Steak and Mushrooms

I made Salisbury Steak today for the first time ever.  I remember hating it as a kid but it was basically hamburger patties with instant gravy when we’d have it at school.  I made a meatloaf type patty and used lots of mushrooms in the gravy; it went beautifully with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Salisbury Steak

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 slices bread – torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup onion – diced
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 1 onion sliced

Combine beef, torn bread, diced onion, garlic, eggs, Worcestershire, salt and pepper.  Form into 4 patties.

In large skillet sear patties over medium high heat for about 3 – 4 minutes each side. Add beef stock and onion slices; cover and reduce heat.  Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile make gravy.

Salisbury Steak Gravy

  • 1 pound sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire
  • 2 Tbs ketchup
  • 2 Tbs corn starch
  • 1/4 cup beef stock

In skillet cook mushrooms in olive oil for about 10 minutes until tender.

Season with cayenne, salt, and pepper.  Add cup of beef stock, ketchup and Worcestershire; bring to a boil.  Combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold beef stock and add to boiling liquid stirring until thickened.

Remove patties and onions from skillet and place into large casserole pan.  Smother with mushroom gravy and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly and patties are cooked through.
