Homemade Salisbury Steak with Simple Brown Gravy

My husband loves red meat and I love Salisbury steak but I am not a big fan of the  frozen boxed kind. Besides the sodium, and preservatives  I just don’t care  for the taste of them.  So I wanted to try to create my own with a lot more flavor and substance. I am pretty happy with my final result, considerably thicker than the frozen patty the flavor is delicious and satisfying.  If you want you can sub in your own homemade cream of soup mix.



1-10 oz. can cream of mushroom soup

1 ¼ pounds ground beef

1 medium onion, minced

¾ cup plain breadcrumbs

1 tsp. steak seasoning

1 egg


In a large bowl, using your hands, combine ground beef, ½ cup of cream of mushroom soup, 2 tablespoons of the minced onions, egg, bread crumbs, and steak seasoning- make sure all ingredients are thoroughly combined.  Form meat into football shapes and flatten (I get about 5 from this amount of meat).


Brown patties in a large saucepan over medium heat, remove from pan. Place patties back in pan, spooning gravy mixture over the top.  Reduce heat to simmer, cover and continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes.

Serve Salisbury steaks with your favorite side dish.


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup flour

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 cup cold beef broth

1 tablespoon of minced onion

1 teaspoon of minced garlic

Juices from meat (add a teaspoon or two of any meat juices)

TIP: If you are doing this with turkey, replace equal parts of juice from cooking with beef broth)

freshly ground sea salt and black pepper to taste


In a saute pan, quickly brown minced onion, minced garlic with Worcestershire sauce. Stir them together enough to fully combine. Set aside.In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk continuously for 5 minutes. The mixture will thicken slightly. Whisk in a cup of the cold beef broth and add the mixture from your saute pan.Bring gravy to a simmer while whisking. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes while stirring occasionally. Strain. Season with salt and pepper.
