Salisbury Steak Recipe

Salisbury Steak
There’s nothing like some good old comfort food, and there’s nothing better than some Salisbury steak. No…, not the frozen stuff, the homemade Salisbury steak! It’s tasty, it’s easy to make, and it’s been popular in the United States for many years. I found a couple Salisbury steak recipes online a while ago, but one of them I didn’t like the gravy and the other, I didn’t like the patties. So what did I do? I combine them to make the perfect Salisbury steak recipe. In this article, I give you two methods of cooking the patties- on the stove top or on the grill. Whichever one you choose will have a significantly different flavor. Going with the stove top will give a juicy buttery flavor, and going with the grill with giving the flamed broiled flavor. If you want you can do what I did, grill half and cook half on the stove top. Personally, I think both methods taste good.

Salisbury Steak Recipe

Salisbury Steak Recipe


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or venison (I used 3/4 pounds each)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter cracker crumbs (I used Ritz)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 oz sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 package (1 oz) onion soup mix
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • fresh parsley for garnish, optional


  1. In a large bowl combine the ground beef (and venison if using), egg, barbecue sauce, cracker crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and paprika together until well combined.
  2. Form into 6 patties.
  3. Cook patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat, on both sides until browned and cooked through. About 15 minutes.
  4. In another large skillet, add butter, mushrooms and onion. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often until mushrooms and onions start to brown.
  5. Add onion soup mix, beef broth, and cornstarch. Whisk continually until gravy thickens.
  6. Pour gravy over cooked patties and lower heat to simmer, for 15 minutes.
  7. Serve over mashed potatoes and garnish with parsley if desired.

  1. I have a tried and true Salisbury Steak recipe that we eat often…very yummy like yours! I’ve never heard of serving the steak on cheese toast though…neat! I’ll be trying that…

    thanks for visiting me and I’m sorry about your Taco Bell experience…that would have completely freaked me out! lol!

  2. I tried this recipe last night and it was very good!! I no longer use Ground Beef in my household…only Ground Turkey. It turned out GREAT even w/ the Turkey!

  3. DJB – I’m glad you liked my recipe! It does sound really good with ground turkey as well, maybe others that don’t use ground beef will enjoy this variation as well. Thanks.

  4. I’m a little late commenting, but this looks AMAZING. Not something to eat every day if you’re concerned about your arteries, but… awesome. Will try it out when I need a little comfort food.

  5. Wow this looks good! We’ve been thinking about trying salisbury steak from scratch, I think I’m going to try yours.

  6. Wow, this is really good. I’ve fixed it 3 times in the last 6 weeks! You should know that it is even better 1 or 2 days later. A real bonus if you want to have a meal ready in advance. Put the patties in the gravy and refrigerate. Gently reheat, on low, covered on the stovetop, with a little water in the pan bottom.

  7. Hello! I tried this today, it is wonderful! The KIDS even ate it! Now THAT’S an accomplishment! Thanks so much!

  8. Made this for my finicky wife and my daughter. They loved it. I didn’t have horsradish at the time so I used spicy mustard instead. That was two weeks ago. They have requested it again for tonight.

    This is a very easy recipe too

  9. WOW!!! This recipe is incredible!! I absolutely loved it. I did my own post of this recipe 🙂 Thanks SO much for sharing!!

  10. Wow, this looks amazing! So yummy. I’m young but I’ve been in the kitchen for almost 8 years 🙂 My mom is real picky, but i think she’ll like it! Wish me luck, i love making new things 🙂 Cooking is my passion

  11. Hi, I tried several of your recipes and I loved it, really delicious and fit my taste.

    And I really like to try this recipe too, but the problem is they don’t sell horseradish (both fresh and prepared) in my country and I never taste horseradish before.
    So do you have any suggestion on what ingredient should I use to substitute it?
    Thanks 😀
