Homemade Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy

This delicious homemade salisbury steak with onion gravy is savory and filling. The gravy is great over rice and mashed potatoes as well, the perfect sides for this recipe!!


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ⅓ cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder – optional, use if not doing onion in gravy
  • Gravy
  • 1 onion – small
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp ketchup
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. If you want caramelized onions in your gravy, start by thin slicing a small onion. Cook with 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat until nicely brown. About 7-8 minutes. Set aside in a bowl.
  2. Mix 1 pound ground beef with ⅓ cup bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons ketchup,1 teaspoon mustard and Worcestershire sauce, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder. If not doing the onions, then add ½ teaspoon onion powder.
  3. Divide one pound of hamburger mixture into 3-4 equal portions. A quarter-size indent in the middle will help prevent puffing up of the patties and make cooking evener.
  4. Place steak patties in a large frying pan with a teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat. Flip about every 5-6 minutes until an internal temperature of about 165°. About 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness, the pan, and your burners.
  5. Whisk 4 tablespoons flour with 1 cup beef broth. Remove the Salisbury steak to a plate and lightly tent.
  6. Pour out most of the liquid, leaving about 3-4 tablespoons of liquid. Allow the pan to cool some. Add 1 cup beef broth and bring to a light boil over medium heat.
  7. Slowly add the flour-broth mixture while continuing to whisk. Add 1 teaspoon ketchup and ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Add salt to taste.
  8. Whisk until nicely thickened, a few minutes. If using, add caramelized onions to the gravy and mix well.
  9. Add steak back into the mixture, simmer a few minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes or as you wish.
