Salisbury Steak with Brown Mushroom Gravy

posted in: Entrées | 0

Whenever I think of salisbury steak, my mind automatically wanders to those little frozen TV dinners with the pucks of mystery meat and questionable brown gravy. Although I ate plenty of those things back in the day, fortunately I’ve grown out of that phase and onto bigger and better meals. This classic recipe is both incredibly easy to make and packs a whole lot of flavor in every bite!  

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose seasoning
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) package sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5-6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 2 cups (16-ounces) beef broth

Step 1: Prep all of your vegetables. Chop your onions, dice your garlic and thinly slice your mushrooms.

Step 2: In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook your onions and garlic until the onions become soft and translucent. Roughly 5-6 minutes. Place them in a bowl and set aside.

Step 3: Combine the egg, bread crumbs, seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and half of the onion/garlic mixture to the ground beef. Mix everything together by hand and then form into patties. IMG_2487

Tip: Press your thumb into the center of the patties to keep them from bulging up in the center while cooking!

Step 4: In the same pan over medium-high heat, cook your steaks until they are browned on each side. Roughly 3 minutes per side. It’s okay if they are still raw in the center because they will finish cooking in the gravy.

Step 5: In the same pan over medium heat, add in your mushrooms and the rest of your onion/garlic mixture and cook for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms begin to wilt.

Step 6: Add in your flour and cook for 2 minutes. Then, add the beef stock and thyme and bring to a simmer over low heat. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Once your gravy has begun to thicken, add the steaks back in and simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Step 7: Serve over a bed of homemade mashed potatoes or your favorite side and enjoy!

I think it goes without saying that this is 1000 times better than the TV dinner versions. And on top of that, it’s soooo easy and quick to make you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with those silly frozen TV dinners. 

And with that, thanks for reading and Happy Friday!!!
