This is some good stuff folks!!  Do you love salisbury steaks (the kind you buy frozen)? Have you ever had them?  God only knows what’s in those things.  And, while I can’t replicate the texture as good, I have come across some recipes and altered them to end up with this very tender Southern Salisbury Steak.

How do you make Salisbury Steak from scratch?

Just combine ground beef, onions, stuffing and seasonings (specific ingredients listed below) and come up with this recipe. Awesome comfort food!  Great home-cooked meal. Perfect for family dinners.  I made mashed potatoes and my Cheesy Green Beans to go with it. 

Why does my Salisbury Steak fall apart?

To prevent this, make your mixture, make your patties, then put the patties in the fridge for about 30 minutes prior to cooking them.

What kind of meat is in Salisbury Steaks?

My Southern Salisbury Steak recipe is made using ground beef only. However, sometimes you will find them made with a blend of ground beef and pork.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! I’m low on funds this week and we’ve got chicken and ground beef. Fortunately, I picked up a box of Stove Top because we had Thanksgiving at someone else’s home and I didn’t get to take any stuffing with me!

    I’m going to have to make homemade brown gravy. I hope I have the ingredients!!

  9. I love Salisbury Steak too. I would have never thought to add stuffing mix, but I think that would really make these something special.
