A classic hearty meal. Make sure to cook the mushrooms until the pan is nearly dry, that's what makes them tasty and less rubbery.


Prep Time 15 mins

Cook Time 30 mins

Total Time  45 mins

Servings: 4 

Ingredients

For the steak:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • lots fresh ground black pepper , or to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil , for searing beef patties

For the Mushroom Gravy

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces mushrooms , sliced
  • 1 medium onion , sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup flour , depending on how thick you like your gravy
  • 3 cups  broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)
  • kosher salt or sea salt , or to taste
  • black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In large bowl mix together all the steak ingredients (beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, mustard powder, salt, and black pepper). Shape into 4 oval patties.

  2. Heat large pan over medium-high heat and then add oil. Brown both sides of patties (about 1 minute per side) and then remove from the pan.

  3. Keep same pan and beef juices over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook until onions are golden and excess mushroom liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes.

  4. Add garlic and butter. Cook for about 1 minute. 

  5. Stir in the flour, cooking and stirring to remove lumps. Add about 1/2 - 1 cup of beef stock, whisking until incorporated.

  6. Increase heat to High. Slowly pour in the remaining broth and whisk until well combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste (the saltiness and flavors will concentrate some when it reduces down).

  7. Once gravy starts to boil, reduce heat to low.  Stirring often, simmer until the gravy starts to thicken, about 5-10 minutes.  Add salisbury steak patties back into the gravy and cook until the steak patties are cooked to your preferred doneness (usually about 5-10 minutes), stirring the gravy occasionally around the steaks. Taste for seasoning and add more salt & pepper, if desired.

  8. Serve the steaks topped with the mushroom sauce.  They are excellent over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes!
