Simple Salisbury Steak
My kiddos have always been quite picky eaters. We have looked for ways to hide some of their favorites into some dishes. They now love our One Pot Pepperoni Pizza Pasta and also our Chicken and Broccoli Pasta.
Since the kids were very young, they took a liking to gravy. They were also fans of hamburgers. One of their favorite dishes was Meatloaf. So I often make a good Slow Cooker Meatloaf for dinner. The hubby and I decided years ago to have them try Salisbury Steaks. They were a hit with the kids immediately. So for years we have been making them. I recently came across the Pioneer Woman’s Salisbury Steak Meatballs and decided to add some additional flavors to our Salisbury Steaks. The addition of bread crumbs, ketchup, and mustard were great for extra flavor.
We will usually make one pan of Salisbury Steaks for the kids and one pan for us. Our pan gets loaded with mushrooms and onions too! The gravy and spices added to simple ground beef patties just kicks a boring meal into a pan of comforting patties. I use packaged dry gravy mix (you could use homemade or even jarred gravy) to keep the meal quick and simple. Make some homemade mashed potatoes or even a box of instant potatoes works when in a pinch.
The ingredients needed to make your own homemade Salisbury Steaks is so simple. You will need ground beef and other items found in your fridge and pantry. You can have dinner on the table in know time at all.
1 lb Lean Ground Beef
1/3 cup Bread Crumbs
2 tsp Ketchup
1 tsp Mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
2 packets Brown Gravy Mix
2 cup hot Water
1 tsp Ketchup
1/2 tsp Worcestershire
Combine all patty ingredients in a large bowl and massage with your hands until ingredients are incorporated.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Cook patties on both sides until no longer pink.
Lower temperature to low.
Whisk together gravy mix and water until well blended.
Whisk in ketchup and Worcestershire and pour over patties in skillet.
Allow to simmer until gravy warms and thickens.
