Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak



It doesn’t get any better than this! Salisbury Steak that cooks in the slow cooker and makes the most amazing gravy. Each steak is a quarter pound and this recipe makes eight steaks. I fixed mashed potatoes with this and I covered them with that amazing gravy.

    • It would be fine cut in half. I wouldn’t use a slow cooker like I did though. Mine is huge. Use a normal round shaped one and I would still cook it 4-5 hours. Just check it at 4 hours and make sure it is ok and not smelling overcooked. It should be fine.

    • Sorry I didn’t really answer your question. Just use half the ingredients and cook like I mentioned in other comment. Also, think about making the entire recipe and freezing half for another day when you don’t have time to cook.

  1. I am trying this for dinner tonight 🙂 it would help if the printable version of this recipe clarified to cook on LOW for 4-5 hours. That detail is missing. Thanks!

  2. You are more than welcome we had it for dinner tonight and both loved it. You impressed a Baroness that takes magic. I do most of the cooking so my wife is the judge. Now back to research for next blog. Yours Sir Kevin.
