Salisbury Steak recipe

Yield: 4 servings



  • 1 envelope onion soup mix (from a 2 ounce box of 2)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef*
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 1 beef bouillon cube**


  1. Mix 2 tablespoons soup mix and 1/4 cup water in large bowl. Add beef and parsley and mix until blended. Shape into 4 oval patties, about 5 inches long and 2/3 inch thick.
  2. Coat patties with 1 1/2 tablespoons flour.
  3. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook for about 10 minutes, turning once, until crusty and no longer pink in the middle. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Add onion, mushrooms and 1/4 cup water to the drippings in skillet. Deglaze pan with wooden spoon. Turn heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally until onion and mushrooms are soft.
  5. Mix remaining soup mix, 1 1/2 cups water and 2 1/2 tablespoons flour in a small bowl. Stir into mushroom mixture, add bouillon cube and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring often, until thickened. Return patties to skillet and turn to coat with gravy.
  6. Remove to plates and serve with remaining gravy.


* Or use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef.

** Or use a chicken bouillon cube.

I have used some dried parsley instead of fresh and it has turned out fine. I also add a little more water and make more gravy and serve with mashed potatoes, placing gravy over the steaks and mashed potatoes. My friend serves hers with rice instead of potatoes. Add a salad and green beans and you have a well rounded meal!
