Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy, served over Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with a side of green peas is pure comfort.  

I wanted to prepare and share a dish that said “when I am with you I am complete and comfortable”.

On any given day, this is one of the most popular recipes on the blog. It’s a fan favorite and a family favorite. My 11 year old bonus daughter Ella made it for a weeknight dinner with some neighbors. I would say this also qualifies as a quick & easy recipe!

Salisbury Steak patties

Salisbury Steak isn’t much more than kicked-up hamburger patties braised in mushroom gravy.  Almost like mini-meatloaves, sautéed in butter, then finished in a nice rich mushroom gravy. I really like the mushroom gravy.

Although, I’ve probably seen just as many recipes for Salisbury Steak with an Onion Gravy, so I say get happy and take it in the direction that makes you and yours complete and comfortable.

  • 1 Tbl. fresh thyme leaves minced
  • 2 Tbl. flour
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups beef broth

For the Salisbury steak…

  • Combine ingredients and form into 3-4 oval shaped patties. Melt 1 Tbl. butter in a large skillet, sauté patties 4-5 minutes per side over medium heat until nicely browned. Remove from pan and reserve.

For the mushroom gravy…

  • Add 1 Tbl. butter, sliced mushrooms, and shallots and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the fresh thyme and cook an additional minute. Dust mixture with flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. The mixture will be thick. Gradually stir in beef broth 1/2 cup at a time, allowing mixture to come to a boil in between each addition. Add more broth until desired thickness is achieved. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Return steak patties to gravy, reduce heat to low, and allow to braise until patties are cooked through.
