This Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak is smothered in onion gravy and is capable in about 30 minutes! Serve with my favourite mashed potatoes and you've got a meal that even the pickiest eaters will like! (If you desire to get further fancy, serve this Salisbury steak with my Restaurant Style Mashed Potatoes!)
Poor Man's Salisbury Steak


We grew up poor and I matter this being certainly one of these food we had a minimum of as soon as a week. Salisbury Steaks are basic to make, quite inexpensive, and loaded with flavor. It typically includes a home made hamburger patty smothered in a prosperous gravy. The consistency is further like a meatball than a hamburger although due to my mystery ingredient! (more on that below)
And in my humble opinion, it’s all of the time the greatest whilst homemade!
Salisbury Steak Recipe

The first step to creating Salisbury steak is to make the hamburger patties. We all of the time used 70/30 flooring pork rising up as it was essentially some of the foremost inexpensive, but lately I desire to make use of a leaner percent like 90/10. I also desire to take my flooring pork out of the fridge about 30 minutes earlier than making ready this so that the meat isn't cold.

A normal Salisbury steak makes use of breadcrumbs, but we by no means appeared to have these available rising up so my mother would use beaten potato chips. I love the salty and crunchy thing that the potato chips upload to this recipe. It’s my “secret ingredient” and in addition the place the title “Poor Man’s Salisbury Steak” comes into play.

The meat is blended with potato chips and seasonings, then shaped into hamburger patties. The patties are then fried in a skillet (I used a 12-inch) with the oil and butter till the juices now not run pink.

Remove the patties from the skillet after which drain off any extra grease.

Easy Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy

One of my favourite parts of this meal is the gravy.  I love to prepare dinner up a double batch and freeze it to make use of it other nights of the week.  To make the gravy, leap with the similar skillet you cooked the Salisbury steaks in.  With the temperature decreased to medium, upload within the sliced onions and prepare dinner for about 3-5 minutes, or till they're golden brown and particularly soft.  Next, upload within the meat broth and Worcestershire. Once it is mixed you possibly can upload within the cornstarch and stir everything till it involves a low boil and the sauce begins to thicken.  If you get to a level the place the sauce looks TOO thick, you possibly can upload further broth to thin it out.  Return the steaks to the gravy and spoon gravy over everything.

The cease consequence of this job is a mushy flavorful Salisbury Steak, smothered in a prosperous onion gravy. An basic and flavorful dinner!

Salisbury Steak

This recipe freezes well, so that you may certainly make a double batch for later within the week.  There are NULL ways for freezing:

Freeze the raw steaks after which thaw and comply with the relaxation of the recipe as listed.
Freeze the cooked steaks within the gravy, and the defrost them within the fridge and simmer in a pan till they're warmed through.
The absolute greatest strategy to serve Salisbury steak is over mashed potatoes. I also upload a vegetable edge like garlic and parmesan roasted asparagus or brown butter brussel sprouts.
