Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Salisbury Steak

  It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is SALISBURY STEAK.

This is a satisfying family dish, not to mention tasty! It’s a nice change from plain hamburgers and wonderful for those “company” dinners on a limited budget. I like to make this meal whenever I find fresh mushrooms on sale. Same with ground hamburger — it’s not as inexpensive as it used to be! One of my family’s favs!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!

1¾ cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped onion

¼ tsp. pepper
2 (13 ¾ oz.) cans beef broth

3 T. water

Vegetable cooking spray


Combine hamburger, onion, cooked rice, pepper and egg.  Stir well.  Divide into 6 equal portions, shaping into 1” thick patties.  Coat skillet with cooking spray.  Add patties and cook 5 minutes each side.  Drain on paper towels; set aside and keep warm.  Add mushrooms and cook 3 minutes.  Add Worcestershire Sauce, salt and broth, and cook for 10 minutes.  Return patties to skillet.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.  Place patties on platter and keep warm.  Combine water and cornstarch; add to broth mixture, stirring well.  Bring gravy to boil and cook 1 minute.  Serve over patties. Good with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles.

    1. I could usually get this on the table in about half an hour. Actually, the mashed potatoes I made with it took longer to cook. If you’re serving with mashed potatoes, I recommend peeling (if you do that, I don’t as long as I use red potatoes) and getting them onto to boil, then prepare the Salisbury steak. 🙂

      Hope you enjoy!

  1. I love Salisbury Steak but have never made it myself! Thanks Karen! This looks like something I will have to try!
