One pan 30 Minute EASY SALISBURY STEAK! Tender beef patties simmered in a savory mushroom and onion gravy. Total comfort food that comes together in about 30 minutes!

It looks like guy food but I’m telling ya, us girls love it too! Bonus is it’s cooked up in one pan with just a few ingredients. The gravy is cream free…although no one would blame ya if ya tossed in a quarter cup or so…

How to make Easy Salisbury Steak :
Start with good fresh ground beef. I used 85/15 fat content.
Season your ground beef following the recipe card and form into patties. Do your best to not over mix to avoid tough burgers.
PRO TIP: I like to make a little indent in the middle of the pattie which helps cook them evenly without expanding and being to thick in the middle. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
We love a cast iron pan for this dish. It helps form a delicious crust on the beef patties and color is flavor!
Can I use ground turkey or ground chicken to make Salisbury Steak?
You can and we have! Gravy makes it all good! Avoid fat free turkey or chicken, it tastes like a roll of paper towels. You will only save a few calories and fat grams. Not worth it to us. Use a dark/white meat blend with a 93/7 fat content and you will love it!
Remove the beef patties from your pan. Add the mushrooms and saute until brown, scraping up all those delicious left over bits on the bottom of the pan.
Toss in your onions and give them a few minutes to soften up and brown.
Stir in a bit of flour to help thicken your gravy then pour on the beef stock!
Let simmer for about 5 minutes until thick and bubbly gravy goodness appears. It’s gravy magic!
Add your patties back to the pan and simmer until cooked through and at a minimum of 160 degrees and get ready to shine like the rock star cook you are!
There is no one who doesn’t love this pan of comfort food!
What do I serve with this Easy Salisbury Steak?
- Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes – start these earlier in your slow cooker and dinner will come together in a flash!
- Cooked pasta – we like a nice wide noodle like a fettuccine egg noodle or even a rotini would hold up good with this.
- Simple steamed veggies like broccoli, cauliflower or carrots make a great side dish.

Have made this dish many times. Love the one pan and the mushroom gravy is to die for.
Hi! Just wondering how many people this serves?
I made this tonight on a cold winter evening and it was just what the doctor ordered! Such awesome comfort food. I also used 85/15 organic grass fed beef. Mine wasn’t dry in the least! Thank you for sharing your recipe! And Angela, how can you possibly leave such a rude comment without trying the dish first? It’s really good, maybe you should be more open minded and less judgmental, just a thought! 🙂

I heart you Molly 🙂
These were really good!! I used elk meat, which is usually dry, so I added an extra egg and some olive oil to the patties. They came out really tender and delicious! We are on day 3 of the Whole 30, so glad I tried this recipe!

I’m so glad you liked it! Elk meat huh? I used to eat that all the time when I was a kid. Gpa was a huge hunter…delish! I’m starting W30 tomorrow and plan on making this again and trying for a prettier picture! Thanks for you note!
Yum! This looks so good, and pre-making the Avacado Chucken burgers Ian a great tides for lunch! Can’t wait to have some time this weekend to cook some of your great treats.
