Salisbury steak

Let’s go back, waaay back in time! You remember eating Salisbury Steak as a kid? Most likely they were in a frozen TV dinner? Yes, but I really, really liked them. I recently came across this recipe by Ree Drummond, and I just had to try it, just to turn back time with this classic. I’m so glad I did. This was so super delicious! And yet it was so easy to make, anyone can practically make this. Make big steaks, or little ones, if you have little diners like your children…. It’s yummmmmy either way…..

What you’ll need:

Meat Mixture

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup. seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cube beef bouillon, crumbled, or 1 envelope powdered beef bouillion
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • 1 whole onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • salt and pepper

For the mixture: Combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, ketchup, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bouillon and some salt and pepper. Knead until all combined. Form 4 to 6 oval patties. In a large skillet heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Fry the patties in the skillet until they are no longer pink in the middle. Remove from skillet and pour off excess grease.

For the gravy: Reduce the heat to medium and add the sliced onions. Stir and cook until golden brown and somewhat soft, for several minutes. Add the beef stock, ketchup and the Worcestershire sauce. Then combine the cornstarch with a little bit of beef broth and add to the sauce. Stir and cook to reduce. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over the beef steaks!

Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
