very good

Haven't had Salisbury Steak in years so this recipe was a great find. Using ground meat really does simplify the process a LOT and this recipe is flavorfulrelatively quick and easy to put together. We had ours with sweet potato mash and some oven roast vegetables - DEEELISH!

I've loved these since grade school and I love them still. SO delish!

The Classic Salisbury Steak Recipe has been here as far back as I can remember. It's nice that the McGraws like this recipe.

I was thinking about making Salisbury steak just the other day but I didn't. Of course I had no plans to prepare from scratch and I am happy to locate this simple recipe. My Salisbury steak usually begins with that cubed beef and sometimes ends up being a little chewy. I am anxious to try this recipe.

I enjoy eating Salisbury steak and so does my family. This recipe delivers a satisfying, savory meal that everyone will enjoy. Prepared in one pan, what could be easier? Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans, and dinner is ready.

We prepare Salisbury steak at least two to three times a month. Usually when I find cube steak at the market. I guess I never really thought about making it from scratch. No excuses now with this easy recipe and I bet it will be even better than my original recipe.

This is similar to the Salisbury Steak that I make, except I add minced carrots and tomatoes into the steak itself, pop it into the freezer for about 15 minutes to hold it together and then dredge it in the flour before browning. I've never browned tomato paste or used wine before though...I'm gonna have to try it that way.

Ingredients list doesn't show red wine or beef broth

My Grandmother used to make something very similar to this. It was one of her (and mine) favorite recipes to make. Classic and delicious!
