Salisbury Steaks

Yum. I love Salisbury Steaks! I’ll admit that when I was a kid my dad used to feed us On-Cor frozen dinners, and Salisbury Steaks were my favorite. I’ve had a few different recipes, all of which I didn’t care for, until I found this one years ago.

I always grill the meat first to seal in the juices and achieve those lovely grill marks :) I don’t cook them completely on the grill, just enough to get the marks on both sides, then I either simmer them covered on the stovetop or in a foil covered baking pan in the oven. Either way, I cover them in gravy first then cook.

Cook patties on the grill, just enough to get those fabulous grill marks on both sides.

Remove from the grill and put all patties into a 13x9x2 baking pan (oven) OR large skillet (stovetop). Cover patties with brown gravy (I used two portions of leftover gravies from pot roast meals I had frozen).

Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in 375 F oven for 25 minutes.

Serve with gravy and mashed potatoes. Mmmmmmm!

    Hi Amanda,
    These salisbury steaks look great. Much better than the ones I have made (my husband actually told me he didn’t like them and was relieved when I stopped making them :)

    I have to confess–I used to love the salisbury steak at the school cafeteria. :)

    I’ll have to try it your way, just one more try for the old salisbury steak. Maybe this ones a winner ;)

    Admittedly, I’ve tried several recipes before I found and settled on this one. My husband didn’t like the first two or three I tried but this one was a keeper!

    My son would’ve come right over to eat dinner with you if we lived nearby! ;) This has always been one of his favorite meals.

    I had to laugh because my sister and I ate our share of Swanson’s salisbury steak growing up, too! lol!

    Oh…this looks delicious. I know my husband would be thrilled if I made him a Salsbury Steak! He’s such a meat guy! lol

    When I was a kid (let’s see, that was about 60 years ago … LOL), I also liked salisbury steaks, which was one of the things that our maid could do really well.

    Haven’t had any in a long time, but your post prompted me to ask my lovely wife, Doctor E, to give it a try.

    She will probably use ground bison, instead of beef, but I can hardly wait to re-awaken what’s left of my childhood taste buds.

    Thanks for the neat post.

    Amanda:

    Thought you might enjoy this story.

    I had a really bad week at work (I am a nurse in a correctional facility) and the last thing I wanted to do on a Friday night was cook.

    Lo and behold, when I finally made it home and opened the door I was greeted by a beautifully set table, a glass of my favorite merlot and the wonderful savory aroma of salisbury steaks bubbling away in a pan of deep brown gravy.

    Yes, it was my ever-so-thoughtful husband at work!! He’s a retired “educator” with the time and the inclination to treat me like a queen. Lucky me!

    Anyway, the salisbury steaks were AWESOME and just the kind of comfort food I was craving. My husband made extra, which we froze in the gravy.

    THANK YOU for helping me get over a stressful week.
