Salisbury Steak Garlic Mash Potatoes Mushroom & Onion gravy
Classic Salisbury Steak is smothered in a mushroom and onion gravy and is ready in just 30 minutes!
One of those comfort food favorites that never goes out of style. It’s quick to make, inexpensive, and is popular with kids and adults alike! This homemade version is WAY better than the kind you’ll typically find in the freezer section of your grocery store.
The first step to making Salisbury steak is to form your meat patties. I like to use a 90% lean ground beef, because it has a lot of flavor but it’s not overly greasy. The meat is mixed with breadcrumbs and seasonings, then formed into oval shaped “steaks”.
The patties are cooked to golden brown, and then a simple gravy is made with onions, mushrooms, beef broth and a little cornstarch which is used as a thickener. I typically use white button mushrooms, but other mushroom varieties like cremini mushrooms would also be a great choice. I make it easy on myself by purchasing the pre-sliced mushrooms to save on some prep time.
