Keyword: Salisbury Steak


  • 1 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 shredded onion
  • 1 tbsp garlic salt
  • 12 tsp pepper
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cup beef stock
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning


  • Add the shredded onion, garlic salt and pepper to the ground beef in a large bowl. Incorporate all the ingredients. Shape the beef mixture into hamburger-sized patties. (I usually give mine more of an oval shape for this recipe.) I make 6 – 7 patties.
  • Place the patties in a large saute pan. Flip when browned, about 5-8 minutes. Brown on the other side for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover pan, and continue cooking until meat is fully cooked. Remove patties to a plate.
  • In the pan drippings, cook onions and mushrooms until onions are translucent and mushrooms are browned. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Whisk in beef stock, bring to a boil and cook until desired consistency. Stir in Italian seasoning. Add patties back to the pan just to warm.
