This is a classic recipe found at any late-night diner as a blue-plate special. It is also very tasty and simple to make.

Salisbury Steak

For patties

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp garlic chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs + some
  • Salt/pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter

For sauce

  • 1 medium onion cut in half and sliced very thin
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tbsp flour

Take everything for meat patties and mix well in a bowl. Add breadcrumbs until mixture forms a rough “dough.” Shape into 4-5 large oval “steak” shaped patties. In a large oven proof pan heat butter over medium high heat. Add meat patties and brown on one side. Flip and place in an oven at 375 degrees. Cook until meat is your desired doneness in the center then remove from pan and let rest. Meanwhile place pan back on burner and saute onion in fat over medium low until golden brown. Add mushrooms and saute until softened. Add flour and mix well with everything then add wine and deglaze pan. Bring heat to a fast simmer and add broth. Cook sauce for five minutes then add meat and any juices back to pan and cook until sauce is thick , about five minutes more. Serve with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots.

    This looks delicious. I do something similar with pork patties, breaded the same way, and with a gravy. Never thought to try it with minced beef. >

  2. I am going to make this for dinner tonight!

  3. Old school and delicious.

    When I first lived in the US, back in 1986, frozen entries were a novelty for me, they did not exist in Brazil. I fell in love with two in particular: swedish meatballs and Salisbury steak…

    your post brought me memories! I never tried making Salisbury steak at home… would be fun to do it

    Damn… does that look good!! Did you feel you should serve it on ‘blue plates’? (Sorry, just couldn’t help myself…) You’re right – no self-respecting diner or family-owned restaurant worth it’s salt would’ve omitted Salisbury Steak from its menu. I gotta go Pin This !! ; o )

    I’ve been working on ‘perfecting’ a recipe for two types of Southern-Style Biscuits & once I get it ‘right’, I’d like to include a link to this delicious looking Salisbury Steak Recipe. Wouldn’t biscuits be great with this. In fact, I’ve started working on the post – so I’m gonna put the link in right now just in case my ‘pea brain’ might forget!! ; o )

    (I had no idea there’d be a ‘pingback’…. I hope you’re OK with it.) I included both your recipe for this delicious Salisbury Steak and a recipe for Perfect White Gravy from another blogger. I’m pleased with today’s post…. esp. because I did the first biscuit recipe over FOUR TIMES!! I finally went down to the cellar to get my old cast iron skillet – and that was just magic that was needed!!

    My dear Dad arrived in Toronto in the winter of 1956 and one of the stories he used to tell was how he was disappointed when he ordered Salisbury Steak shortly after his arrival, he had no idea it was ground meat! Obviously he would have had an entirely different story had he ordered your Salisbury Steak!

      Eva – I loved reading about your Dad in 1956. Where did he come from? (I wonder if he ever ordered Salisbury Steak again – I bet he did!)

  10. Great recipe!! I made this for dinner on Saturday. I served smashed red skin potatoes, homemade applesauce, and a sweet and sour bacon, kale, cabbage, and Brussel sprout bake!!
