Now let’s talk salisbury steak. What is salisbury steak? ( I know there are some people that don’t know what it is, and I am here to inform you sweetie. Salisbury Steak is a meat patty usually made out ground beef, spices, and bread crumbs. Once the meat patty is formed, it is then fried, and smothered with a rich creamy onion gravy. Sounds pretty dang good huh? Well it is! Lemme tell you how I make my homemade salisbury steak!
So as mentioned before, salisbury steak is usually made out of ground beef, and that is what I use. I have heard of some people using ground turkey to make their patties, but I’m going to keep it real with you – I wouldn’t do it! Nope. I’m not gonna lie. It doesn’t even sounds like real salisbury steak to me. If you wanna go the ground turkey route- that’s you boo….Let’s carry on!
Salisbury steak is known for it’s onion gravy. Some people skip out on making their own gravy and they use canned onion soup. I personally don’t like the condensed onion soup gravy stuff. Most of the time the onion soup is too salt, and In my mind It’s still soup, and doesn’t replace homemade gravy!
Honestly making your own onion gravy doesn’t take a lot of time, and chances are you have all of the ingredients to make it. So rock with me, live a little, and try making it homemade.
This salisbury steak is seriously the BOMB. It’s easy to make, and it is comfort food at it’s best. Skip out on buying the frozen stuff, and try making this southern style salisbury steak.
