Homemade Salisbury Steak has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. It is classic comfort food at it’s finest! Serve the tender, juicy patties over mashed potatoes (my favorite!) or noodles, and cover all of it with a generous helping of onion gravy for a rich, delicious dinner.

What is Salisbury Steak?

It isn’t really a steak, it is ground beef combined with bread crumbs, onions, and a Worcestershire sauce, and formed into slightly oblong patties that resemble a steak. They are fried in a little oil and finish cooking in a delicious brown onion gravy that makes them moist and tender.

What is the Difference Between Salisbury Steak and Meatloaf?

Salisbury steak and meatloaf are similar but there are a few differences. Salisbury steak does not use eggs and meatloaf does. Salisbury steak if not baked into a loaf but instead it is formed into oblong “steak-shaped” rounds and cooked on the stove top. Meatloaf is often served with a baked-on tomato-based sauce on top. Salisbury steak is served in a brown gravy.

how to make Salisbury Steak

How to Make Salisbury Steak:

  1. In a large bowl combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, diced onions, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Thoroughly mix ingredients together.
  2. Form beef mixture into oval patties weighing approximately 6 ounces each.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Add beef patties to the skillet and cook on both sides until the center is no longer pink. You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your skillet. Place cooked patties aside.
  4. Make the onion gravy.
  5. Add beef and onions back to the skillet, spooning the gravy over the beef, and let the beef cook in the gravy for another 10 minutes.

How to Make Onion Gravy:

  1. Once all patties are cooked reduce the heat to medium and make the onion gravy by adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet along with the sliced onions. Cook the onions for approximately 10 minutes, medium-high, until they are caramelized. Set onions aside.
  2. In a large bowl or measuring cup, combine beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. Add flour and whisk until no lumps remain.
  3. Pour the broth mixture into the skillet and cook until the sauce begins to thicken.
