Salisbury steak

Tender ground beef patties slathered in a mushroom and onion gravy. So much more tasty than the school lunch and tv dinner versions.

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 T. butter
  • 6 mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 of a large onion sliced
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 to 2 T. organic Worcestershire sauce depending on how tangy you like yours
  • salt and pepper to taste This will depend on how salty your broth is. If it is bland, by all means add more seasoning.


  1. Mix together ground beef, egg, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Divide into four oval shaped patties.
  3. Place in skillet over medium heat, and cook for about 5 minutes on each side. If your beef is super lean, add a little oil or butter to your pan to prevent sticking. You are looking for a brown but not burned coloring on the beef. The inside doesn't have to be completely done but close.
  4. Set aside patties on a plate after browning.
  5. In the same skillet, add 2 T. butter to the pan along with sliced onions and mushrooms. Cook until browned and softened.
  6. Stir flour into vegetables and cook for a couple of minutes more.
  7. Whisk in beef broth and 1 T. Worcestershire sauce, and cook until thickened.
  8. Taste and add more salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder until it suites your tastes.
  9. Add beef patties back into sauce, spoon sauce over patties, and simmer for a few more minutes until they are cooked all the way through.
