I had literally never even heard of salisbury steaks before. It doesn’t even look like a steak. It’s name makes no sense to me. Would you call a rooster a chicken? No. It’s a rooster you idiot. But anyways, I again found myself with leftover ground beef, and no idea of what to make. So who do I turn to? Come on now…you know the answer. Dom. I told you he’s a genius. Are you just wishing Dom had a blog now instead of me? Yeah, me too.
All and all, salisbury steak is just ground beef with a bunch of crap added to it. It’s simple as hell AND freagin delicious. It rocked my world. I even ate it as leftovers for breakfast, lunch, and dinner…in one day. My God, my life is over the top thrilling.

4.9 from 21 reviews



For the steak burgers:

  • 1.52 lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

For the mushroom gravy:

  • 2 tablespoons fat of choice (I used duck fat-duh)
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 6oz can coconut milk
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 package mushrooms (your choice what kind)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Heat up that grill of yours. If you don’t have a grill, invest in one. Or cook them on your stove top. Whatever.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the steaks into a large mixing bowl and use your hands to get after it. Mix everything thoroughly. Then make the meat into oval patties. Why ovals? I’m guessing that’s what makes them salisbury steaks. I don’t know. Just make them oval.
  3. Put your oval patties on the grill to cook. They will need to cook for about 3-5 minutes each side depending how thick you made them and how pink you want them inside.
  4. While the patties are on the grill, make the gravy. Add your fat, onions, and garlic to a saute pan over medium-high heat. Let the onions cook until they become translucent. Add the rest of your ingredients including the coconut milk, broth, mushrooms and seasonings.
  5. Mix together and let cook down a bit. Once the onions are beginning to soften, cover the pan and turn the heat down low to let cook, stirring occasionally.
  6. Once the burgers and gravy are done, top the steak burgers with the mushroom gravy, and ENJOY! So tasty!

    Made this tonight. Doubled the recipe, using both ground pork and ground beef. Followed the rest of the recipe as stated and used 1 tsp of arrowroot to help thicken it a bit.


  2. Natalia says:

    Used 1lb ground turkey and 12oz of ground beef because that’s what I had, and it was fantastic. Sauce is amazing! This will go into regular rotation.

    I made this for dinner today and its so freaking awesome! The gravy was a little thin so I added some xanthan gum. It thickened up nicely. I was a little worried about using a whole package of mushrooms but it came together nicely and the flavor is amazing.

  4. Anya Bashlacheva says:

    can you use tapioca starch for thickening the gravy?

    This was awesome! My husband is a confirmed southern man who is not health conscious but needs to lose a big beer belly. He was very suspicious of the coconut milk but ended up loving this. He wants to use the gravy with Swedish meatballs. So long wheat!

      yum! sounds delicious!

    It’s called Salisbury steak, because it was named after its creator Dr. J H Salisbury

    Really enjoyed this recipe. My mom used to pop frozen Salisbury steak in the oven and we all used to love it. We knew no better! These are definitely an upgrade and was nostalgic for me. Great flavor! Loved the thyme in it
