What is Salisbury Steak?

When I’m craving something homestyle and comforting I tend to lean towards meat and potatoes. I’m sure I’m not alone, right?! There is something just so good, especially when you add some creamy gravy over the top!

Salisbury Steak is essentially beef patties that have been braised. They are soft, tender and filled with savory flavor.

The most popular serving method is to eat this on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes. It’s a great way to soak up the gravy. This would also taste amazing alongside a piece of bread to sop up that goodness with. It’s an elevated meat and potatoes dish that is sure to be a hit!

Ingredients for Salisbury Steak recipe

How to make Salisbury Steak patties

PATTIES. Mix the egg, Worcestershire sauce, onion, salt, pepper, garlic and paprika in a bowl to combine. Add the meat and mix until egg and seasonings are evenly distributed. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat while you divide the meat mixture into 8 even portions and flatten into patties.

COOK. Place the patties in the pan, cooking in batches if they don’t all fit at one time. Cook for 4 minutes on each side. Turn the heat down a little if needed to ensure they don’t burn. Drain any excess grease but keep any fond (the little browned bits of food stuck to the bottom of the pan after searing).

Making the gravy

BROTH. Pour the broth over the patties scraping the bottom of the pan to deglaze it.

SIMMER. Bring the pan up to a boil and then turn down to a simmer and continue to cook until the liquid is reduced by half, approximately 20-25 minutes. Turn the patties every 10 minutes to avoid them drying out.

REST. After the 20-25 minutes of braising, place the patties on a plate to the side.

SAUCE. Mix the cornstarch and water in a bowl and stir until blended. Bring the pan back up to a boil, add the slurry to the pan, stir to combine, lower the heat back to medium and cook for a few minutes to start thickening the sauce. Place the patties back into the sauce and flip a few times to ensure even coating.
