For the Salisbury Steak:

  • 1/2 cup onion, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) panko breadcrumbs (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) plain regular yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 beef bouillon cube, crumbled (or 1 teaspoon powdered beef base)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard see notes
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lb (500 g) ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon (14 g) butter
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnishing optional

For the Mushroom Gravy:

  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 8 oz (226 g) fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups (600 ml) beef broth or stock
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  • Place onions, garlic, breadcrumbs, yogurt, ketchup, beef bouillon, Worcestershire, mustard, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a large mixing bowl, mix until well combined. Add ground beef; mix until well combined.
  • Shape into 6 oval patties, around 3/4" inch thick (2 cm). Notes: This is optional, but I like to sprinkle 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour over the patties; this helps them to form a nice crust and also to thickens the sauce.


  • In a large skillet, add the olive oil and butter and heat until melted over medium-high heat. Add the meat patties and fry on both sides until no longer pink in the middle, about 4 - 5 minutes per side. Transfer the patties to a plate. Pour off any excess grease if necessary.


  • Reduce the heat to medium. In the same skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add chopped onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until onions are fragrant and translucent.
  • Add the mushrooms into the skillet and cook for 2 - 3 minutes until golden.
  • Add the beef broth, mustard, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce and stir to combine.
  • Then, in a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with a little beef broth or water and add to the skillet; whisk until the sauce thickens, for about 2 minutes.


  • Add the meat patties back to the skillet and spoon gravy over the top. Cook for another minute until the meat patties warm through.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve over mashed potatoes.


ONION:  You can use white or yellow; either works just fine.
PANKO: If panko isn’t available, you can use 1/3 cup ordinary breadcrumbs. I also like to use one slice of white bread processed in a food processor until fine crumbs.
DIJON MUSTARD: If you don’t have Dijon mustard or don’t want to buy it just for one recipe, you can substitute Dijon mustard for two teaspoons of dry mustard powder.
GROUND BEEF SUBSTITUTION: The original recipe is made with ground beef, but this recipe is versatile. You can substitute ground meats that you have on hand, such as ground chicken or turkey.
STORE:  If you have any leftovers, they can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
REHEAT leftovers in the microwave at 30-second intervals until hot. You can also reheat on the stovetop in a skillet over medium heat if you prefer. I suggest adding a splash of beef broth in the skillet so that the sauce doesn’t reduce too much as the steaks reheat.
FREEZE: First, allow the steaks to cool completely, then freeze steaks in the gravy in freezer-safe containers for up to two months. Don’t forget to label the container with the date and contents! To reheat from frozen, thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then heat in a pan or the oven until warmed all the way through. I suggest adding a splash of beef broth in the skillet so that the sauce doesn’t reduce too much as the steaks reheat.
