Ingredients
  • 1pound ground beef
  • 1/3cup bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1teaspoon mustard
  • 1teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2teaspoon onion powderoptional, use if not doing onion in gravy
Gravy
  • 1 onionsmall chopped
  • 1teaspoon oil
  • 2cups beef broth
  • 4tablespoons flour
  • 1teaspoon ketchup
  • 1/2teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Instructions
  1. If you want caramelized onions in your gravy, start by thin slicing a small onion. Cook with 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat until nicely brown. About 7-8 minutes.
  2. Mix 1 pound ground beef with 1/3 cup bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons ketchup,1 teaspoon mustard and Worcestershire sauce and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. If not doing the onions then add 1/2 teaspoon onion powder.
  3. Divide into 3 equal portions. A quarter size indent in the middle will help prevent puffing up of the patties and make cooking evener.
  4. Place steak patties in a large frying pan with a teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat. Flip about every 5-6 minutes until internal temperature of about 165. About 15-20 minutes depending on thickness, pan, and your burners.
  5. Whisk 4 tablespoons flour with 1 cup beef broth. Remove the Salisbury steak to a plate and lightly tent. Pour out most of the liquid leaving about 3-4 tablespoons of liquid. Allow the pan to cool some. Add 1 cup beef broth and bring to a light boil over medium heat.
  6. Slowly add the flour-broth mixture while continuing to whisk. Add 1 teaspoon ketchup and 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
  7. Add salt to taste. Whisk until nicely thickened, a few minutes.add the Salisbury steak back into the gravy
  8. Add caramelized onions to the gravy and mix well if using. Add steak back into the mixture, simmer a few minutes then serve with mashed potatoes
Recipe Notes

Pro Tips:

  1. I like my meat servings a bit bigger, so I use 1/3 pound of ground beef per serving. Doing 1/4 pound per serving would be just fine and good a little faster.
  2. Don’t chop the onion. Cut into rings and maybe cut the larger ones in half.
  3. Use the depression in the center of the patties. It will help prevent them from puffing up during cooking, and they will cook more evenly.
