Making the Salisbury Steak with Brown Gravy
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, ketchup, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bouillon, salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix well. Form the meat mixture into 8 large oval patties.

  • Add the butter and oil to a 12-inch skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Fry the patties on both sides until no longer pink in the middle, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet and pour off excess grease.

  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the sliced onions. Stir and sauté for about 5 minutes, until onions are golden brown and somewhat soft.

  • Add the remaining gravy ingredients, whisking continuously. Heat and stir until slightly thickened.

  • Return the cooked patties to the gravy. Spoon the gravy over the tops and let them simmer on low until heated back up.

  • Serve over mashed potatoes or noodles, if desired.

  • This simple and flavorful Salisbury steak is budget-friendly and feeds a large family. These tender, homemade beef patties are simmered in a brown gravy and are great served over mashed potatoes. For more delicious dinner ideas, try this Spicy Parmesan Shrimp Pasta.
