Salisbury Steak

Another “old fashioned” diner meal.

The secret to making a good Salisbury steak is to let the meat simmer in the gravy for at least an hour. The meat should be tender and not have the texture of a just fried or grilled burger. Simmering also enriches the flavour of the gravy.

Salisbury Steak In Mushroom 
2 Pounds of ground Sirloin
1 onion finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 Teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste
Option: Caramelized onions.


1/2 small onion chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1 Tablespoon green peppercorns (optional)
Fresh Mushrooms sliced
2 Tablespoons Flour
Broth 2 to 3 cups (Beef or chicken)
Pan drippings plus 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter or oil.

Saute onions in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil until tender but not browned. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. In a bowl combined ground sirloin, parsley, thyme, dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. Add onions and garlic and mix well. (I use my hands).Form into oval shaped patties. (I made 5 nice size ones from the 2 pounds, but you could make smaller if you prefer). Brown the patties in a heavy skillet in a little olive oil. You can also brown these in a grill pan. Remove the meat from the pan. Add a little more oil if needed and saute the onions, garlic and mushrooms. Sprinkle with a little flour, cook for a couple of minutes and add the broth and the green peppercorns. Add the patties to the pan, cover and simmer on low for at least one hour. Make sure there is enough sauce to almost cover the steaks.

    This recipe was absolutely delicious.I've made this recipe twice now and the first time, I made it exactly as written. Hubby said it was fabulous. The second time, I put my own little twist on it by adding 1/4 cup of sherry after adding the flour, stirring until almost evaporated then added the broth. It just gave it a little extra kick.It's really, really good either way. Thank you so much for a great recipe.
