Salisbury Steak

Onion Mushroom Gravy

  • 1 large onion halved and sliced thinly
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms optional
  • 2 cups beef broth low sodium
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp pepper or to taste


  • In a large bowl, combine the beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, using your clean hands. Divide into 6 equal pieces and form each one into oval patties.
  • In a large skillet add the olive oil and butter and heat until melted over medium-high heat. Add the meat patties and fry on both sides until no longer pink in the middle, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the patties to a plate.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the sliced onions and cook until softened. Add the mushrooms, if using, and cook for a few more minutes until the onions are golden brown.
  • Add the beef broth, tomato paste, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce and stir. In a small bowl whisk the cornstarch with a bit of water or beef broth and add to the skillet. Whisk until the sauce thickens, for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the meat back to the pan and spoon gravy over the top. Cook for another minute until the meat patties warm through.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve over mashed potatoes.


  1. Transfer your leftovers to an airtight container and store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Since the beef is full cooked through and you don't have to worry about over-cooking, you can reheat in the microwave at 20 second intervals until hot.
