Salisbury Steak recipe

Salisbury Steak

I must admit, I’ve never had Salisbury Steak until we made it.  Yep, it’s true.  LOL  I never ate it in school whenever it was served for lunch; however, something tells me that this recipe is MUCH better than what they serve in schools!  It was delicious.  It probably helps that I’m a huge gravy lover.  :)  Best part?  This is a HEALTHY dish!  ENJOY!  :)

Salisbury Steak


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 c reduced-sodium beef stock
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste


  • In a bowl, beat egg; stir in bread crumbs, half the onion, 1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper; mix in ground beef.
  • Form into four patties, each 4 inches in diameter.
  • Add patties in a large non-stick skillet with oil over medium-high heat; brown patties, about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Transfer to a plate and drain fat from pan; add remaining onion, garlic, and thyme to skillet.
  • Cook onions and garlic, stirring, for 2 minutes or until softened.
  • Sprinkle in flour; stir in remaining 1 and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, beef stock and tomato paste.
  • Cook gravy, stirring, for 1 minute or until thickened.
  • Return patties to skillet; reduce heat, cover and simmer, turning once, for 10 minutes or until the patties are no longer pink in center.
  • We served this with baked potatoes in which we spooned some of the gravy on top.
