Salisbury Steak

This is the best and easiest Salisbury Steak recipe I have ever made.

I have to admit I love gravy, onions, and hamburger so when I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Cookbook it quickly became one of my favorite recipes. I have changed a few things but you can find the original online

If you have ZERO ingredients then this recipe will cost about $14.36 as of June 2022.

I am assuming you have salt and pepper and do not add it into the recipe total cost.

Recipe serves: 4

Serving size: 1 burger and 1/4 cup sauce

Equipment needed: 1 deep skillet with lid and 2 mixing bowls

Total time: 30 minutes

Let's cook!

  1. Heat pan with 1 tablespoon of oil then add patties for 3 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove the patties to a plate then use a paper towel to clean any bits off the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add the onion soup mixture to the pan and bring to a boil. Return the patties to the pan, reduce heat and cover.
  4. Simmer for about 10 minutes. The internal temp of the beef will be 165° F. I like to use an instant read thermometer. Enjoy!
