Even the name Midwest Salisbury Steak sounds so scrumptious it causes people to salivate! Fork tender and infused with deeply meaty and sweet onion flavors, the ground sirloin amazes all on its own. When slathered with a rich, savory mushroom sauce to accent and amplify its beef flavors, you go past irresistible; you’ll have to stop yourself from licking the plate after finishing your Midwest Salisbury Steak.


For the patties:
1 pound ground sirloin
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
For the gravy:
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 sweet onion, sliced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Step 2

Shape the meat into 5 patties.

Step 3

Cook patties in a large skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes per side.

Step 4

In a separate skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter.

Step 6
