Lean ground beef and turkey are combined to lighten up this classic, retro American dish. My family loves it over these Instant Pot mashed potatoes or serve it over mashed cauliflower. This makes enough for 2 nights for a family of four. Eat half and freeze the rest for another night.  If you love this recipe, you might also enjoy these Salisbury Steak Meatballs!

It’s hard not to imagine TV dinners when you think of Salisbury Steak.  It was originally a poor man’s beef dish back in the great depression when steak was a luxury. To stretch the dollar, they made these steaks with ground beef and fillers, shaped to resemble a real steak.

My family loves this dish, everyone from my picky teen, toddler and husband. I’m sure yours will too!! It’s total comfort food and so much better when it’s homemade.

  1. I’m curious, why the extra egg white in the meat mixture?! Seems so random to add an egg white to it, unless egg white in meat does something I’m not aware of?! This looks like something my husband will love!!

    • I think I’ve read on other recipes it’s to save calories with the same effect. For me, I use two eggs. Not buying egg whites or separating eggs lol 

  2. Very good but I like it a little more soupy. So inadded more broth. It was delicious 

  3. Do the mushrooms get mushy when you freeze?

  4. My husband is not a big fan of ground meat, but this steak blew him away.
    Thank you

  5. Really tasty recipe , I’m just about to make them again !

  6. I have made this recipe over and over. We love it. The only difference is I put 1 of the tablespoons of tomato paste in the meat mixture. Otherwise the gravy tastes too tomatoey. I got that idea from the Salisbury meatball recipe. Leftovers freeze great.

  7. How would I freeze this…I am trying to prep meals before surgery.  Thanks for all your great recipes!

    • I always freeze this as it is just my husband and I these days. When I am shaping the patties, I make them an oval that, after cooking, will result in a size to fit my small rectangular food freezer container. I put two stacked on top of each other and then fill it in with the gravy. Safeway now carries these containers (costco used to but pyrex bought out the company and changed them…). I thaw them out the night before and just make mashed potatoes and peas. It freezes and reheats well!

  8. This is an INSTANT favorite in our house!! Just made it for the first time tonight. I was sad when I saw a serving was only one patty, but I had one patty with 1/2 cup of garlic cauliflower mash and am definitely full. My fiancé went for seconds and is already saying it needs to be added to the regular rotation. Very impressed with the gravy consistency and the recipe over all – I used beef stock instead of broth because it’s what I had and it still came out great. 

    On our weight loss journey for our wedding I have cooked skinnytaste almost exclusively and this is a new favorite 🙂 

  9. I made this the other night according to the recipe and I felt like I tasted too much tomato. Next time I am only going to use 1 tbsp of the tomato paste rather than 2.

  10. Have made this recipe three times. I think it’s a winner! Satisfying and filling, it is a delicious change, especially on a cold night. Thanks, Gina!
