This classic Salisbury Steak recipe is smothered in mushroom gravy and ready in under 30 minutes!
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. I always have ground beef in my freezer, and one of the ground beef recipes I crave is this Salisbury Steak recipe. 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.
