Salisbury Steak Mushroom Gravy

This is a comfort food classic that’s easy to make using affordable ingredients. In this recipe, flavorful ground beef patties are cooked in a homemade mushroom gravy.



Add ground beef, salt, pepper, garlic powder, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, egg and breadcrumbs to a large bowl. Mix until the ingredients are combined.


Separate the meat mixture into 4 patties (about 8 ounces each). Shape each into an oval shape. Like an elongated burger. Place the patties on a baking sheet or plate.


Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef patties. Cook for 3-4 min. per side to brown on both sides.


Don’t worry if they are not cooked through, they will finish cooking in the gravy. Remove the skillet from the heat. Remove the patties and place on a plate or pan. Keep warm.


Drain the excess grease from the skillet, but do not wash. We want to make the gravy in the drippings for extra flavor. Place the skillet back over medium heat and add the butter.


When the butter is melted and foamy add the onions, cook them gently for 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Next, add the mushrooms. Cook them for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add the flour to the mushroom mixture, stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste, stir often.


Add the beef broth and stir until the flour mixture dissolves. Bring to a simmer, add the patties back to the pan. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.


Uncover the skillet and simmer for approximately 7-10 minutes to thicken the gravy further. Keep it at a simmer. The gravy will thicken as it cools. Don’t take it too far.

Serve the Salisbury steaks with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables or your favorite sides.
