Salisbury steak is one of my childhood favorites. I remember eating it as the entre of a tv dinner. If I liked it then, I know that I will really enjoy the homemade version a lot better. This is comfort food that the entire family will love. When making this, I would use lean ground beef, lite sour cream, and fresh, sliced mushrooms in the gravy.

Salisbury steak always reminds me of my moms cooking. She always made this for a weeknight supper.

I have made this recipe many, many times, and it is always as good as the last time. It is a staple that we crave every so often, and we just have to have it. The combination with mashed potatoes has to be our favorite too. The combination of the thick, meaty gravy with the creamy potatoes is delicious.

My family serious loves meat and potato meals, so this will surely be a hit. It's so easy and such a classic comfort food. We would never order this in a restaurant, but we will love this as a weeknight dinner. This will be like an old cafeteria style meal.

Hamburger never tasted so good. This recipe is a great weeknight dinner. It is quick and easy to prepare. I served it with mashed potatoes with the delicious gravy that this recipe makes on top, green beans, and a tossed salad. My family loved it. You really can't go wrong with this one.

Salisbury steak is one of my husband's favorite homemade dishes that I make. I want to try this recipe, but dehydrated onions like in onion soup mix upset my stomach. What would you substitute along with a fresh onion to keep this recipe close to what you already have in it?

This is great. I love Salisbury steak served with mashed potatoes. I have never tried it with noodles. Why mess with a good thing. The mushrooms are optional. but they add great flavor if you can eat them. I do like to use oatmeal instead of cracker crumbs when I make this.


I made this a few weeks ago with mashed potatoes and green beans. Oh my goodness, it was amazing! My husband and I both loved it and wanted to finish off the whole pan that night!

How many will this recipe server?

I've made several different recipes for Salisbury Steaks, and they were all good in their own way. This one sounds terrific, even though it's very high in sodium (because of the high sodium content in the Onion Soup Mix). Nevertheless, once in a while will be ok, right? I'll serve it with parsleyed & buttered Egg Noodles, and a fresh vegetable (Broccoli or Asparagus). I can't wait to make this! I'm sure it's delicious, and that my family & I will enjoy it.

you can buy low sodium onion soup mix in bulk food stores.

Thanks! I need to watch my sodium, so I will look for that. I'll probably add more onion and garlic to make up for the lack of salt. Salt makes a big difference in flavor, but eventually you get used to it and learn to use more herbs and spices to compensate. Sometimes a little red pepper flakes works wonders for flavor without getting too much heat.

This is the best Salisbury steak recipe that I have ever found. I've made this several times and my husband can't rave enough. I add a big fat onion because he won't eat mushrooms, but everything else stayed the same including the sour creme, which I was skeptical of. But one never knows until they try. Thank you

I made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome! I made mashed potatoes and baked beans with it but the Salisbury steak was the star of the meal. I WILL be making this again. Simple, easy, and delicious!

These were the best!!! Yes, bake covered in the oven and the mushrooms which are listed as "optional" are part of the gravy. Serve over egg noodles. Excellent!

It says "bake at covered" so i assume it's supposed to be covered while cooking. I made sauted green beans and bob evans mashed potatoes. Do not cover it. I used fresh portobellos and oh my god it does taste like salisbury steak!

catlady: not all of us always have the time to make fresh mashed potatoes. I do when I have time but when I don't, instant work just fine. Don't be so critical.

I've been looking for a good salisbury steak recipe for years, and I've finally found one! We always rate the new recipes I try on a scale of 1-10, and all 4 of us rated this one a 10!

I too, have been searching for a good old Classic Salisbury Steak recipe for a very long time. By reading this recipe, I think that I finally found it! This recipe makes a lot, as it calls for 2 lbs. of meat. In order to cut the fat, I'll use 1 lb. of lean ground sirloin and 1 lb. of lean ground turkey. I can't wait to try it!

mushrooms are mentioned in the ingredient list but not in the recipe instructions. I assume they are added to the gravy mix??

I haven't made this dish yet, but in reading this recipe.... I will lightly sautee the mushrooms in a little bit of light margerine, and then I will add them to the completed gravy. I'll chop up the mushrooms very finely.
