Easy Salisbury Steak


If you want a quick and easy meal to prepare, this is it! Everyone was a member of the clean plate club when we were done eating. This is a great kid friendly meal. This recipe uses regular hamburgers, fresh or frozen, and they cook on top of the range in a delicious gravy. I would have loved to add mushrooms but nobody but me likes them!






In a large frying pan over

medium heat, melt the butter.



Add the onions and cook until tender.



Remove the onions to a bowl and set aside.



Brown the hamburger patties in the same

pan cooking about 2 minutes on each side.



In a small bowl, whisk together the beef

broth, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.



Place all 6 browned hamburger

patties flat into the pan.



Top with the cooked onions.



Pour the broth mixture into the pan.

Bring to a simmer and cover.

Simmer for 20 minutes.



Remove the hamburger patties

from the pan and keep warm.



Turn the burner with the gravy pan

to medium and bring to a hard

simmer stirring constantly.



Sprinkle the flour over the top and

whisk continuously until the flour is

mixed in and the gravy thickens.

Remove pan from the heat.



Place a hamburger patty on a plate

with rice or mashed potatoes.



Ladle the gravy over the

hamburger patty and the rice.



Add a vegetable and you

have a delicious meal!

  1. I’m seeing more and more recipes lately that call for Worcestershire sauce. This formerly was always a staple in my cabinet, but somehow over the years, I just didn’t replace it. Probably should correct this oversight. I love the way you make the rice scoops. The gravy looks just that much more delicious as it slides down the sides! ;->

    Virtual hugs,


  2. It looks lovely. I have never had gravy served with hamburger patties with rice before ( in the U.K), but I would definitely try it. I had meatloaf in America once, with mash! You do cook some dishes in a different way to us sometimes. It’s always good to try new things.

    • I know right! Sometimes I want them so bad I just eat them out of a can! It’s a compromise though because I don’t like green pepper and everyone else does. I refuse to cook a meal with them. Occasionally if I am going out to eat I will make my husband a meal with them but that’s rare…lol

  3. Looks good will do it and add mushrooms as you say.Here the forests yield them fresh daily we all love them here sad for you as healthy they are and contain some of bodies needs to ward off health problems. A natural doctor indeed. You may well know that but cant make people eat them. Good and the English name of a great cathedral city goes well with me Salisbury was old Sarum the place of the King.Old city of 5th century walls still to be witnessed today almost intact just outside the city today.

  4. I love mushrooms – haven’t had salisbury steak in a long time, but loved it with gravy, onions, mushrooms and mashed potatoes. The good old days.
