Ingredients

For the Salisbury Steaks

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/3 cup onions chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red peppers

For the Mushroom Onion Gravy

  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 cups onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Instructions

For the Salisbury Steaks

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix ground beef, onions, egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, crushed red peppers and pepper together.  Divide into equal amounts and shape into oval patties about 1/2 inch thick. Should get 5 or 6.

  2. Heat a cast iron pan or large frying pan over medium high heat and cooked each patty for about 4-5 minutes on each side. 

  3. Once cooked on both sides, remove from the pan and place on a plate.  

For the Mushroom Onion Gravy

  1. Reduce heat to medium, add onions and garlic to the pan along with the steak drippings. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and continue cooking for another few minutes. 

  2. Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms and onions, stir and cook for another minute or so. 

  3. Next, add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Stir for a few minutes and place the Salisbury steaks back into the pan and cover with the gravy mixture.

  4. Cover pan and cook for about 20-30 minutes gently stirring occasionally. The gravy will also thicken up as it cools so make sure not to cook it too long or your gravy will be too thick. If that happens, just add a little more beef broth to thin it out. 

  5. Serve over mashed potatoes with a delicious vegetable. 

  6. Enjoy!

  7. *And if the gravy seems to thin, mix 1 tsp corn starch with 1/8 cup water, then add to pan, stir and let simmer for a few more minutes.
