homemade salisbury steak

I love Salisbury Steak. What I don’t love is how high in sodium TV dinners are. I came up with this recipe because I had a craving and did not want to buy the frozen, high sodium option. My family devours it every time. While this is not a cooking blog, I will share some of my great recipes from time to time because I really do love to cook and sometimes I come up with real crowd pleasers.

You will need 8 to 10 beef patties. You can prepare them yourself if you like. I like to buy premade hamburger patties.

Mix together the seasonings in a small bowl. For these measurements, I use a traditional teaspoon not a measuring teaspoon.

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne

Season both sides of each patty with a pinch of the seasoning blend. Literally just take a pinch between your fingers and sprinkle it. You can do this first, or do like I do and season them in the pan. Pan fry the patties for about 3-4 minutes per side. You are really just wanting to fill the pan with grease for your gravy. They do not need to be fully cooked at this point.

Transfer the patties into a 13×9 inch pan. I have found that only 4-5 patties fit per pan if you do not want them to overlap. Continue until all patties are precooked.

If you would like to add onions or mushrooms, saute them in the pan before adding the flour. Whisk in 1/4 cup of flour and the remaining seasonings from the bowl. It really is best to use a whisk, but mine is broken so I used a spoon.

Slowly whisk in 4 cups of beef broth. Set the oven to preheat to 375*. Bring the gravy to a slow simmer. Simmer for only a minute or two. You want the gravy to still be thin.

Use a ladle to transfer the gravy into the pan with the patties. I like to use my spatula to lift them up and make sure that gravy gets underneath. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes.

I like to serve them with mashed potatoes, green beans, dinner rolls, and a tall glass of cold milk.
