For The Salisbury Steak

  • In a large bowl, using clean hands, mix ground beef, onions, bread crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, parsley, pepper, garlic salt and red pepper flakes together,
  • Divide mixture into 6 equal parts and form 6 oblong patties.
  • Using a large cast iron skillet over medium heat or an electric skillet at 350°, melt butter and place prepared patties into skillet.
  • Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side then remove and place on a plate.

For The Mushroom Gravy

  • Reduce heat to medium or 325°, add onions and garlic to pan with the drippings.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring and scraping the brown bits together.
  • Add mushrooms and continue cooking for a couple more minutes.
  • Sprinkle flour over mushrooms, onions and garlic. Stir and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Next, add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and stir until combined.
  • Place patties back into pan, cover with gravy mixture and cook for 25-35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Gravy will thicken up as it cools. If gravy is not thick enough, mix corn starch with water, add to pan and stir for a few minutes to thicken.
  • Slice each roll in half, add two tablespoons or more of gravy on the bottom slice of the roll, add Salisbury steak patty, top with Swiss cheese, then add a few more tablespoons of mushroom gravy over the top.
  • Place top slice of roll on top and enjoy.
