Skillet Salisbury Steak

We are less than a month away from having this sweet babe and we are getting excited to meet her and see what she looks like.  We always struggle with naming a child and still don’t have a clue what her name will be.  We have been keeping so busy over here  it seems like time has flown by with this pregnancy.   Our basement is about 2 weeks away from being finished and then we will be able to focus on welcoming her into our home and giving her a name. 😉

I have had to get creative with meals lately because we are so busy.  I need something that is easy and requires little clean up.  It is so nice to mix it up from a chicken dish and have these savory salisbury steaks that are drowning in a rich brown mushroom and onion gravy.

I love salisbury steaks and it is comfort food at its finest.  You create this delicious meat patty that gets those nice crisp pan seared edges and tender center.   But my favorite part is the rich brown gravy that you create with mushrooms and tender onions.  The meat is just drowning in this delicious sauce begging you to serve it over some mashed potatoes.

    Made it tonight and it was tasty/delicious! I think my only change (and it’s just a personal preference) would be to make a thicker gravy. Thank you for another keeper, Alyssa! You definitely know your flavors and spices 🙂

    I like one skillet recipes and this looks good. I too like a little thicker gravy though and I also boost my beef broth with some beef base.

    • One skillet meals are a go-to for me, especially on the busy school nights! Glad you enjoyed it and you were able to make it your own! Xo

  5. My family loves it. I cooked this for dinner. I was worried that we did not have mustard powder and no mustard either. It still tasted good. Anyway, I doubled the recipe so that we can reheat it for tomorrow’s dinner. My husband and daughter like it a lot. Thank you so much! Your salisbury recipe is so easy to follow and delicious too!
