How To Make Salisbury Steak?
This is a very easy recipe that comes together in about 40 mins.
- Prepare the hamburger by mixing it in a medium-sized bowl with ⅓ cup of the soup, breadcrumbs, egg, dry parsley, salt, and pepper, until well combined. I like to use my hand to mix it all up.
- Divide the meat into 6 oval-shaped patties.
- Using a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and brown the patties on both sides.
- To make the gravy, mix the remaining soup with the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, garlic powder, flour and water until well combined.
- Pour the gravy mix over the patties, add the mushrooms on top, and simmer for about 20 mins or until the meat is fully cooked. For this, you need to put the lid on.
Can I Freeze Salisbury Steaks?
Yes, you can. Wait for them to cool completely and place them in an airtight container fit for the freezer. Label it with the date and freeze for up to 4 months.
To reheat, thaw them in the fridge overnight. Take them out 30 mins prior to serving and reheat in the microwave or a skillet on the stovetop.
Salisbury Steak Variations
- You can make an onion gravy instead of mushroom gravy. After adding the gravy mix, add onion slices instead of mushrooms.
- If you like more veggies, try adding bell pepper strips as well as mushrooms and sliced onions.
- The gravy can be changed by using a dry onion soup mix if you don’t have condensed french onion soup.
- Like it on the spicy side? Add chopped green chiles or jalapenos to the ground beef.
- To change the gravy a little bit, instead of using ketchup and Worcestershire, add barbecue sauce.
- For a creamier gravy, add 2 tablespoons of heavy cream.
