Salisbury Steak sounds so fancy but it’s SO easy to make. They are basically mini meatloaves fried and served with mushroom gravy. It’s the perfect comfort food and only takes 30 minutes to make.
You have to serve this with recipe to get the full effect! I love how we’re taking ground beef and frying it and getting away with calling it “steak.” I made an earlier version of this recipe for my family a few weeks ago, and we got to talking about where exactly Salisbury Steak came from, anyway. We were throwing out ideas, I said German? My mom said, English?
My brother Nathan and I both said, no way, it’s too delicious to be British. (Don’t hate me if you are from the UK. Just set me straight. Send me a delicious British recipe.
I’m serious. Make sure there is no blood sausage involved, or you will confirm all of my biases.) How to make Salisbury Steak Well it turns out Salisbury Steak is American, and it was made up by a guy (named Salisbury) who was one of the first health faddists. He was convinced that vegetables released toxins (??), and that we would all be healthier if we ate copious amounts of boiled ground beef. He said we should eat it three times a day.
Seriously. I’m glad someone improved on this idea by frying and adding mushroom gravy, because boiled ground beef??? Sick. I am typing this at an outdoor eating area at Whole Foods (for the wifi). Eric and I are in virtual line for a U2 concert tonight. Have I told you about Eric’s U2 obsession? . . We are pretty excited.
He’s excited for the concert (and crushing on the Edge), and I’m excited for bacon wrapped hot dogs. No, they don’t serve hot dogs as part of the show (although how awesome would that be??) but we’ve been to this arena before, and I happen to know that when the show gets out around midnight, there will be dozens of little hot dog carts set up, ready to sell me overpriced deliciousness. I even recreated the recipe, you should definitely make these this summer. They’re soooo goood.
You should definitely make Salisbury Steak too, stat. It is just such an easy crowd pleaser, and it only takes a half hour to throw together. You HAVE to make it with my . This is basically not optional. It’s summer time and I’m supposed to be posting salads and stuff for you guys. Boringggggg. (This explains why I only have ) But I DID make a salad recently that even I am in love with, which means YOU are going to love it.
It’s a Buca di Beppo knockoff. (Have you been there? You know the salad I mean.) (UPDATE! Here’s the recipe for .) Until then, eat some Salisbury Steak! | | | One year ago: Five years ago: Six years ago: Ingredients For the steaks • 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms • 1 medium or large onion, chopped and divided • 1 and 1/2 pounds ground beef • 1 egg • 1/3 cup • 2 tablespoons * • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard** • 1 teaspoon minced garlic • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce • 1/4 teaspoon (optional) • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper • 1 teaspoon onion powder • 1 tablespoon oil, for frying For the gravy • 1 tablespoon butter • 2 and 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms • 1 teaspoon minced garlic • 2 and 1/2 cups beef broth*** • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons flour • 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard** • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce • parsley, to garnish • , to serve with • Start by chopping the onion and mushrooms.
Chop the onion, then take about 1/4 cup of it and finely chop. Add the 1/4 cup to a large bowl. Set the rest aside for the gravy. • Finely chop one cup of mushrooms and add to the large bowl. Slice about 2 and 1/2 cups mushrooms and set aside to use for the gravy. (I bought 1 pound of mushrooms for this recipe and used about 3/4 of it.) • In the large bowl with the 1/4 cup finely chopped onion and 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms, add ground beef, 1 egg, panko breadcrumbs, tomato paste, whole grain mustard, 1 teaspoon garlic (I used the jarred kind), 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke, 1 and 1/4 teaspoons salt, 3/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1 teaspoon onion powder.
• Use your hands to combine the meat. It's feels weird but just do it; using a spoon takes longer and you end up with tougher steaks usually. (This is true for meatloaf and meatballs as well.) • Shape the meat mixture into 6 oval shaped patties. • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and swirl to coat. When the oil shimmers, add as many meat patties as will comfortably fit on your pan. Don't crowd them too much or they will steam instead of sear. I cooked the meat in 2 batches.
• Sear the meat for about 2 minutes, and when they are nice and browned use a spatula to flip them over. Sear the other side until browned, about another 2 minutes. It's okay if the patties are not cooked all the way in the middle.
• Remove the patties (or "steaks") to a plate and repeat with the other patties. • Remove the patties and add 1 tablespoon butter to the hot skillet. Add the onions and sliced mushrooms that you prepared earlier. Saute for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute another minute. • In a glass measuring cup, whisk together the beef broth* and flour.
• Add the broth mixture to the skillet. Add 1 teaspoon mustard and 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce. Stir and cook for a couple minutes until the mixture begins to simmer. • Add the steaks back to the pan. Turn the heat to a low simmer and cook for another 5 minutes or so, until the salisbury steaks are cooked through. • Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with my !
You cannot beat this combination! by The Food Charlatan Recipe Notes *For odd tomato paste measurements like this, I love to buy that is kept in the fridge. That way you don't have to deal with half a can of leftover paste. **dijon mustard works great too! ***I always, always use to make broth. I teaspoon beef base + 1 cup water = 1 cup broth. So in this recipe I used 2 and 1/2 cups water and 2 and 1/2 teaspoons base. It's my secret weapon for so many recipes!
If you make this recipe, using the hashtag so I can see it! Other recipes I’m sure you will love! << haven’t made this in forever!! Delish. << my favorite meatloaf. Ever.

Time to move on, if you don’t know British food don’t put it down.
And as for ‘blood sausage’… you mean British Black Pudding, Spanish Morcilla, Swedish Blodpudding, Italian Buristo, French Boudin Noir, German Blutwurst?, you know all the countries that colonised your fair shores!
This racist rubbish has to end. • Thanks for sending me in a totally different dinner direction today. Was going to use the thawing meat to make a quick chili to go with hot dogs…but since I bought some fresh garlic and portobellos yesterday, this quick Salisbury Steak sounds much better. Am even thawing another pound of ground beef so I’ll have Friday breakfast leftovers :) •

Let’s face it, we want to eat good food at home but there are times when we also just want to make it happen at the shortest time possible. Love your blog. It is a source of inspiration for meal times in my home. I usually experiment in the kitchen with blah results. It didn’t help with my confidence. So for awhile, all I did was fry. But when I read your intro about how this was a good recipe for beginners to try, I got excited and cooked this for my family.
Although I didn’t get the mustard powder, everything turned out pretty ok. Thanks Vanjo! 🙂
These Salisbury Steak Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy are American classic comfort food. With some modifications to make this meal quicker to prepare than the original recipe, this incredibly delicious dinner recipe is ready in about 30-minutes!
Meatballs are a comfort food for most families and they are usually a food many kids will readily eat. These meatballs are delicate and tender and go great with the brown mushroom gravy.
If you don’t care for mushrooms, leave them out and double the onions. This goes to say for the onions, too. If you prefer to leave out both the onions and mushrooms, you will still have a delicious brown gravy. Ingredients For Salisbury Steak Meatballs: • Olive oil – for browning the meatballs For the Meatballs: • Breadcrumbs: Plain Italian, Panko or Gluten-Free – I use Panko as it’s what I have in my pantry.
Others can be substituted 1:1. • Milk or water – for soaking the breadcrumbs resulting in a moist, tender meatball • Ground beef – I used 20% fat today but lean ground beef works well, too. • Eggs – used as a binder for the meatballs • Finely diced onions – finely chopped or grated so the meatballs can hold shape. • Ketchup • Dry mustard – may be substituted with prepared mustard. See Note 1 • Worcestershire sauce – See Note 2. • Kosher salt, fine – table salt may be substituted 1:1.
• Ground black pepper For the gravy: • Butter • Onion, chopped • Mushrooms: Cremini, white, or baby Bella – sliced • Unsalted Beef Cooking Stock • Cornstarch – All-purpose flour may be substituted.
See Note 3 • Salt and ground black pepper Optional garnish: • Chopped fresh parsley • Fresh thyme, removed from the stems Instructions for Making Salisbury Steak Meatballs: • If you’re serving the meatballs with mashed potatoes: fill a medium pot with water about 3/4 full and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Heat this over high heat to bring to a boil. You want just enough water to cover the potatoes during cooking. While the water is heating, peel, and cube the potatoes.
Remember: Smaller potatoes cook faster thank large chunks. Add these to the pot even if the water is not boiling yet. Be sure to salt the water liberally.
• Prepare the Meatball Mix: • Into a large bowl, add the breadcrumbs and milk (or water) and stir to combine. (step 1 Below) • Next, add the salt and ground black pepper. (step 2 Below) • Add the onions and garlic and stir to combine. (step 3 Below) • Add the parsley and the ground mustard and mix. (step 4 Below) • Add the ground beef, ketchup, and Worcestershire Sauce. Mix well with your hands.
(step 5 Below) • Shape into meatballs about 1-1/2 inches in size. (step 6 Below) • • Cook the Meatballs: Add two tablespoons of olive oil into a large non-stick (Teflon coated) skillet set over medium-high heat.
Teflon works best with these delicate meatballs. • Add the meatballs to the skillet. If you have a smaller skillet, you may need to cook in two smaller batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Overcrowding leads to steaming rather than browning the meat. Brown the meatballs on all sides. Once browned, move the meatballs around the edge of the pan and start the base of the gravy in the middle area of the skillet. If you have a smaller skillet, you may need to remove the meatballs to a plate and set aside. (step 7 Below) • Prepare the Gravy: Add butter to the center of the skillet and melt completely.
Add onions and mushrooms and cook until onion is soft and translucent – about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the onions and mushrooms, then stir to coat. I find this helps with clumping. Add the beef broth and stir to combine working out any lumps you find. Move the meatballs around back into the full pan. (step 8 below) • Season the gravy with salt and pepper and bring to a full boil.
Cornstarch needs to boil to activate thickening. After about 3 to 5 minutes, the sauce should begin to thicken. If the sauce becomes too thick add a bit more beef broth or water. If the sauce is too thin, mix another 1 tbsp of cornstarch into 1 tbsp of cold water and stir to combine.
Then add this mixture directly to the sauce to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. (step 9 below) • Mash the Potatoes: If you’re serving with potatoes, they should be just about tender and ready to mash. • Garnish with Fresh Herbs: Serve meatballs garnished with freshly chopped parsley or thyme.
Expert Tips: • You may substitute 1/4 cup prepared whole grain, stone ground or dijon mustard for the tablespoon of dry mustard powder. • Worcestershire sauce makes beef taste beefier. It really amplifies the flavor. You can omit the Worcestershire sauce if you prefer.
• You may substitute cornstarch for the flour if you prefer. Cornstarch is Gluten-free. Serving Suggestions For Salisbury Steak Meatballs: • Plan on 4-5 meatballs per serving per person depending on how many ounces your meatballs weigh. • Serve with mashed potatoes, creamy , or hot buttered egg noodles. • For vegetables, I recommend . LOOKING FOR MORE MEATBALL RECIPES: • • • • • • For the Meatballs: • 1 cup breadcrumbs , regular, Panko or GF • 1/4 cup milk or water • 1½ lb lean ground beef (or up to 20% fat) • 2 eggs large • 1/2 cup onion diced fine • ¼ cup Ketchup • 1 tablespoon dry mustard [SEE NOTE 1] • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce SEE NOTE 2] • 1 tsp Kosher salt • 1 tsp ground black pepper If you're serving the meatballs with mashed potatoes, fill a medium pot with water about 3/4 full and cover with a tight-fitting lid.

It’s tasty, easy and I almost always have all the ingredients on hand. Although I do cheat on the meatballs, instead of cooking them in a pan on the stove top, I use a bacon drip pan and cook them in the oven @350-375 and they are perfect every time.
They don’t fall apart and they aren’t as greasy, i feel like. Hi Corinne, The abundance of grease would come from the type of meat you’re using from lean to 20% or 30% fat. Very lean beef will produce very little oil. I do also bake meatballs sometimes as it’s just easier than tending to them in the pan. For this recipe though, I feel since we are making a pan sauce I want the browned bits and a little of the oil to build up the depth of flavor in the sauce since we are making it in the pan in just 30-minutes.
I loved this recipe! I have to admit, I cheated for time on the meatballs by using pre-made ones, but I can tell by looking at the recipe, those would be some amazing meatballs.
The gravy portion I followed to a T and it was delicious! It had a great earthy taste from the mushrooms, and was just a delicious beef gravy. I served the meatballs and gravy over my own garlic mashed potatoes with a side of long green beans. It was delicious and only took about 20 minutes to make since the meatballs were pre-made. Hi Shelley – I’m sorry these didn’t turn out well for you. I did, in fact, use this recipe and produce the photos you see pictured in the blog post.
We ate this for dinner just after the photos were finished – and it was very tasty, moist and tender meatballs. When olive oil is used in a non-stick skillet, they should not have stuck at all. Did you perhaps use a stainless steel skillet without the non-stick coating?
I will update the recipe to make sure that the use of a non-stick skillet is clear for others to follow. … Read more » Hi Kathy, I used an 8oz package of button (cremini) mushrooms. Baby Bella mushrooms work well too.
I used dry mustard which I don’t taste the same was as prepared yellow mustard. But if you prefer, leave out the dry mustard and you should still be fine with all the other flavors going on.
