Homemade Salisbury Steak

Ground beef is one of my favorite proteins to have on hand – it’s budget-friendly, thaws fast and there’s so many different things to make with it. Meatballs, meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, lasagna, tacos… And Salisbury Steak!

What used to be a popular TV dinner is now an easy comfort food dinner made from scratch: Homemade ground beef steaks and covered in the best mushroom gravy, so good. My kids call these “mini meatloaves”, and they are a dinner staple around here. Especially during winter, and we LOVE them with mashed potatoes, egg noodles or even rice – it’s such a versatile meal!

Prep time


Cooking time






  • For the steaks
  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 green pepper (finely chopped)

  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 teaspoons ketchup

  • 1 teaspoon mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon oil

  • For the gravy
  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock

  • 1 teaspoon ketchup

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion powder

  • 1/2 pound brown button mushrooms (sliced)


  • Make the steaks: Place all ingredients for the steaks (EXCEPT for the oil) in a large bowl and mix well (I use an electric mixer with the hook attachment because it’s way less messy). Shape into 4-6 patties.
  • Brown the steaks: Heat the oil in a large skillet and brown the steaks from both sides, 3-5 minutes each. Remove to a plate.
  • Make the gravy: In the same skillet (DON’T wipe it!), melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook until starting to brown – do not let it get too dark, or it will be bitter. Pour in the stock, stirring very well. Season with ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and onion powder, then add the mushrooms, bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Finish cooking the steaks: Place the steaks in the gravy and cook, covered for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.


  • Meat: Traditionally, it’s an all-beef recipe. But if you want to change it up, you can also use a mix of pork and beef. Or even ground turkey, if you want.
  • Oven instructions: 30 minutes, covered, in the oven will cook your steaks, too.
  • Internal temperature: Remember, however you cook your steaks, make sure they reach in internal temperature of 160°F to be safe!
