Salisbury Steaks

I would like to start by saying that I hope those of you who are in California (Betty & Joanna) are safe from the remnants of that typhoon that is currently dumping tons of rain up and down the west coast causing flooding and landslides. You are in my prayers!

Dinner tonight will be one of my husbands favorites: Salisbury steaks. I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it's fairly easy and really good. I serve it with mashed potatoes, it makes the most wonderful gravy for them, and a salad or veggie.


2 cans Campbells condensed French Onion Soup
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (at least 85% lean)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 tbsp. flour
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup water
3 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. mustard

In a big bowl, combine half a can of onion soup, bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper with the ground beef. Shape into 6 patties. In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the patties a few minutes on each side; pour off any fat. While patties are browning: in a large bowl combine the rest of the onion soup with the flour, whisking until smooth. Add the ketchup, mustard, water, and Worcestershire; mix well. Pour soup mixture over browned patties. Cover and cook over medium low heat for 10 minutes. Flip patties over, cover, and cook another 10 minutes.

I had my dad over for dinner once and served these. He loved them so much that he made me come over to his house to make a double batch (he supplied the ingredients). Then he put them into Gladware and put them in the freezer so he could have one whenever he wanted!

Happy eating!


  1. I have always been looking to make Salisbury steaks but haven't gotten around to it; this recipe though looks relatively easy; going to try it for sure!

    thanks for your concerns and prayers; I'm inland a bit (45 miles from the coast) so we have had cloudy weather and a bit of rain yesterday but nothing like I heard other parts of the state getting

    that is sooo cute that your dad had you make some of these to freeze for him; I bet he does enjoy the homecooked meal!


  2. Thanks a million for checking on us in California. It's pouring rain but we are safe and far away from any potential mudslides.

    My mom used to make salisbury steak when we were kids. I haven't had it in years. I'll try this recipe very soon. THANKS.

  3. yum, this sounds wonderful! You are making me hungry :)

  4. I think you've got this award before but I wanted to give it you as well! Enjoy!
