Good Ol’ Homemade Southern Style Salisbury Steak!
What is better than some southern style salisbury steak? It being served with some creamy & buttery mashed potatoes, and a nice serving of southern style green beans on the side! Well it just so happens that that was what I was craving the other day, so I made it- and of course I recorded it ( video below!)
Now let’s talk salisbury steak. What is salisbury steak? ( I know there are some people that don’t know what it is, and I am here to inform you sweetie. Salisbury Steak is a meat patty usually made out ground beef, spices, and bread crumbs. Once the meat patty is formed, it is then fried, and smothered with a rich creamy onion gravy. Sounds pretty dang good huh? Well it is! Lemme tell you how I make my homemade salisbury steak!
So as mentioned before, salisbury steak is usually made out of ground beef, and that is what I use. I have heard of some people using ground turkey to make their patties, but I’m going to keep it real with you – I wouldn’t do it! Nope. I’m not gonna lie. It doesn’t even sounds like real salisbury steak to me. If you wanna go the ground turkey route- that’s you boo….Let’s carry on!
Salisbury steak is known for it’s onion gravy. Some people skip out on making their own gravy and they use canned onion soup. I personally don’t like the condensed onion soup gravy stuff. Most of the time the onion soup is too salt, and In my mind It’s still soup, and doesn’t replace homemade gravy!
Honestly making your own onion gravy doesn’t take a lot of time, and chances are you have all of the ingredients to make it. So rock with me, live a little, and try making it homemade.
This salisbury steak is seriously the BOMB. It’s easy to make, and it is comfort food at it’s best. Skip out on buying the frozen stuff, and try making this southern style salisbury steak. Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, and share this recipe with your friends ( especially the single ones, because this dish right here will get you a ring hunnyyyy yassss!)..

my husband and i have been married for 32 years and just lately he has been pining for salisbury steak. never had it, never made it. thought i’d give the old boy a treat and made it for him tonight with your recipe. followed it almost to the letter, less onions and Wondra instead of regular flour. he was IN LOVE!!! i do not eat these types of things because of stomach issues but snuck a bite during the clean up. AMAZING. absolutely amazing. you are wonderful. and you are a real teacher because you sincerely want your students to get it right. thank you.
Hi Georgia! I’m so glad that you decided to give my recipe a go, and happy to hear that you and your husband liked it!!! XOXO
This WILL be dinner tonight!!!

Just made this for dinner…gonna make some ranch mashed potatoes to go with it…it smells awesome I have also made your lasagna and it was delish☺️
Awesome! Glad that you like my recipes!
These Salisbury steaks were good. I should have doubled up cause my fiance and daughter wanted seconds & he had two. I used 96%lean and 4%fat due to both of us needing to watch our cholesterol levels so I had to add a Lil more oil when adding my onions. Have you ever made okra??? That’s something I would like to see due to me messing up years ago and I never tried again…LOL. Keep them coming. I love your video tutorials and how precise you are.

My boyfriend recently had implants so he can only eat food that can be mashed with the back of a fork (mostly). Would this qualify as fork mashable? Maybe simmering in the gravy longer? I sure hope so cuz now I want to make this but not if he can’t eat it too.
No, this is ground. Not mashed.

Thank you, Rosie, for this great recipe. I couldn’t find my recipe for Salisbury Steak and I looked all over. So I went online and chose yours among several others. Happy I did! When we had dinner this evening and my husband asked if I had made this before, I shared the story. He said he really liked this recipe, ate two helpings and that if I find my old one recipe….I should throw it out! Keep this one!!! So, thanks!
Hi Sunshine!! So glad that you both liked the recipe!

Everyone in my family thought this was the best Salisbury Steak we have made. We served it with mashed potatoes. My 4 year old daughter ate her whole piece.
My wife & I have been making different versions of Salisbury Steak for many years. Most recipes call for soup, or soup mixes. Yours was from scratch. Something we rarely see. Wasn’t excited about adding ketchup to the sauce, but gave it a try anyway. Surprisingly it worked! Your recipe was really good! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks so much for trying my recipe!

You have made it easy for me to make a good gravy and last night we did the smothered pork chops and my husband loved them to tonight it is the Salisbury steak. I can’t wait to do the neck bones and turkey neck bones for him, but we both are excited about the smothered oxtails.
thanks for making recipes that non cookers like me can cook and have my husband enjoy. We are both from the south so this is a blessing for me.

I love making this recipe. It was my first time making a Salisbury and I’m not that big of a meat eater but this was delicious. I’m making it again tonight but sadly my potatoes went bad and all the stores close early due to the pandemic. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I was raised up north and this has broadened my horizons on terms of meals for my family.
