Salisbury Steak Patties

  • 2 Tablespoons of oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons cocktail sauce*
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free garlic and herb seasoning


  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups reduced sodium beef broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard

*Homemade Cocktail Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1 dash hot sauce


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, cocktail sauce (or ketchup), yellow mustard, Worcestershire Sauce, pepper, and the garlic and herb seasoning. Mix well to combine.
  • Shape the meat mixture into four oval-shaped patties.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat for about a minute, then add the butter. Place the meat patties in the skillet and cook them for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until they’re well-browned. Remove the patties from the skillet and set them aside.
  • Prepare the gravy: add the onions and mushrooms to the skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low. Sautee the onions for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle 2 to 3 tablespoons of flour over the mushrooms and onions and stir to coat. Gradually stir in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard and raise the heat back to medium.
  • Add the cooked beef patties back into the skillet. Bring to a gentle simmer, cover, and cook the patties for 5 more minutes, or until they’re cooked through. Remove the Salisbury steaks from the heat and serve them warm.

*Cocktail Sauce

  • In a small bowl stir together all the ingredients listed under Homemade Cocktail Sauce. Then use it in the Salisbury Steak recipe.
