- All-purpose flour
- Beef broth
- Worcestershire sauce
- Dijon mustard
Choosing Your Meat
The best part about a salisbury steak is that it’s very adaptable to different kinds of ground meat! We love a good quality ground beef best, but you could also use ground pork, turkey, or chicken.
Be aware, you may have to adjust cook time slightly if you choose to go with a different meat. Always test your meat with a kitchen thermometer to determine it’s fully cooked.
Tips for Perfect Salisbury Steak
- Form meat into oval steaks – this gives your meat a classic “steak” look and also cooks up quickly and perfectly in this shape.
- Sear steaks – this gives the meat a nice golden crust and sets a super flavorful foundation for the gravy.
- Simmer steaks in gravy – this builds a lot of flavor and finishes cooking up the steaks perfectly tender.
- Flavor sauce with Worcestershire, Dijon, and fresh parsley – a little finishing touch for giving the sauce the perfect amount of oomph!
Follow these instructions for time-saving make ahead options!
- Form steaks – the steaks can be formed and stored in the fridge up to 4 days prior to cooking.
- Chop vegetables – the mushrooms and onion can be prepped and stored in the fridge up to 6 days prior to cooking.
- Make the mashed potatoes – mashed potatoes reheat great and can be stored in the fridge up to 6 days prior to serving.
Once assembled, the Salisbury steak stores great in the fridge up to 6 days. We recommend reheating leftovers in the microwave 2-3 minutes, stirring at 30 second increments.
Try these ideas for a different twist on this steak!
- Use a different meat – as mentioned above, this recipe will work great with ground pork, chicken, or turkey.
- Add more vegetables – try sweet pepper, carrot, or peas for an extra veggie addition.
- Make it spicy – add a few shakes of red pepper flakes or hot sauce for a spicy kick.
This is one dinner you will find yourself continually turning back to! The steaks literally melt in your mouth they’re so tender and combined with the savory mushroom gravy…..gahh, it’s just the best.
