Ingredients for Easy Salisbury Steak with Gravy
Ground Beef – We prefer a lean ground beef for this recipe. It’ll help your patties hold together much better! If you have any dietary concerns, mixing or substituting the beef with ground turkey is fine.
Bread Crumbs – We usually use crumbs but we’ve seen all sorts of substitutes here! Experiment with rice, stovetop stuffing mix, crackers, or even oats.
Mustard – Dijon is an interesting substitute to try here.
Garlic & Onion Powders
Brown Gravy Mix Packets – Alternatively, you could make this recipe with our Easy Brown Gravy!
How to make Salisbury Steak
Now that we’ve browned our patties, we can turn the heat down to low and start on our gravy. If you’re following along with our gravy recipe, start by mixing your gravy mix up with some hot water, whisking well to combine. Add in the ketchup and Worcestershire and whisk those in as well.
With our gravy all mixed up, we can finally add it to our patties. Pour your gravy over all the patties in the skillet. Be generous!
All that’s left from here is to let the gravy thicken and warm up in the skillet with our patties! Just let everything sit in the skillet over low heat until the gravy has thickened to your preference. Optionally garnish your finished steak patties with a bit of parsley, plate up, and enjoy!
Other Modifications & Variations
You can top your steaks with all sorts of veggies. Caramelize some onions with your patties or saute some mushrooms to go with them!
There are plenty of other additives you can add to the gravy as well! Try substituting one of your gravy packets out for your favorite soup mixes- maybe use our Copycat Lipton Onion Soup Mix Recipe?
