Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

Whenever I hear “Salisbury steak”, I think of those Hungry Man frozen dinners. Prior to this recipe, I had never had salisbury steak before – definitely not on my Vietnamese mom’s rotation of recipes! I only knew of it from seeing it on frozen dinner boxes at the grocery store. But just recently, for some reason I started googling Salisbury steak and I thought that it sounded like it would be a very hearty and comforting meal.

I’ve tried and tweaked a few recipes now, and this is what I’ve landed on. The little teaspoons of ketchup, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire in both the beef patties and the mushroom gravy add incredible flavour.

The husband definitely enjoyed this meal, and even the baby devoured the beef patty. The toddler is still as picky as ever, so she of course did not even try it.

Tip: If you make the beef patties the night before, this is a really quick meal to whip up on a busy weekday evening!

Serve this recipe with mashed potatoes and a side vegetable like asparagus or green beans for a truly comforting meal.

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 45


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tsp milk
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 package of crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp ketchup
  • salt and pepper



In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the beef patties (except for the olive oil). Using your hands, mix well and shape into 4 round patties.


Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a deep non stick pan. Add patties to the pan and cook until they are golden brown on both sides and fully cooked, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove the patties from the pan.


Onto the mushroom gravy: the diced onion in the same skillet, for about two minutes. Add in the garlic and the butter, and cook for another minute.


Add the sliced mushrooms and saute for about 5-7 minutes until they are browned, mixing frequently. Season the mixture with some salt and pepper.


In a bowl, whisk together the remaining gravy ingredients: 2 tbsp flour, 2 cups of beef broth, 1/2 tsp worcestershire, 1/2 tsp dijon, 2 tsp ketchup and salt and pepper. Pour into the mushrooms and cook until the gravy thickens, about 10 minutes.


Add the patties back to the pan and cover with the mushroom gravy. Cook until the patties are heated through again.


Serve with mashed potatoes and a side vegetable, and drown everything in the delicious mushroom gravy!
