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!
