Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy is a hearty classic featuring seasoned beef patties smothered in a luxurious mushroom gravy.
I feel bad whenever I notice a mistake on an old recipe, so if you ever spot something, dont feel afraid to let me know. I may, or may not, have recently discovered that I accidentally told you all it takes 2 1/2 hours to cook biscuit dough& Eek! I think I may owe anyone who believed that a biscuit, and perhaps a new smoke detector!
After making a mistake, my favorite way to cheer up is to belly up to a plate of some good olcomfort food. And you cant find much that is more comforting than classic Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy! But really, you shouldnt need an excuse to enjoy a great dinner like this, just do it because it tastes good!
Salisbury Steak is a hearty dinner featuring hamburger-like patties that are flavored with seasonings and often contain additions like breadcrumbs and egg for tenderness. The patties are typically smothered in a brown gravy, with mushrooms being a common addition.
The secret ingredient to my Salisbury Steak is onion soup mix. These are typically sold in 1 oz packets, however, only one tablespoon is needed for this recipe. The flavorings are very similar to what I use in my meatloaf recipe.
Mushrooms are a perfect pairing for this dish. I use white mushrooms, but sliced baby portobelloswork well too. The mushrooms simply need to be sauteed, then they can be added to the brown gravy at the end. However, you can certainly omit the mushrooms if you wish.
Salisbury steak gravy is simply brown gravy. It is the same gravy I use for my Beef Tips and Gravy recipe. Making gravy is dead simple, so there is no need to be intimidated. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that you do not want the flour to burn. Melt butter over low heat in a saute pan, sprinkle in the flour to form a roux, then continue to mix for 5 minutes as the flour darkens. At this point, you can add liquid and seasonings and let the gravy thicken.
Tip: If your gravy is too thin, it just needs to cook longer. The longer it cooks the more liquid that evaporates. If the gravy is too thick just add a couple splashes of water to thin it out.
Hands down, the best side dish to serve with Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy is fluffy mashed potatoes. Who doesnt like mashed potatoes and gravy? You could do roasted potatoes instead, but really mashed potatoes are your best option.
