Easy Salisbury Steak

Easy Salisbury Steak

Seasoned beef patties in a homemade gravy with onions, served over egg noodles


4 servings


8 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package instructions and tossed with 2 tablespoons butter
1 pound ground beef or turkey
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
5 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, sliced
1 minced clove garlic, optional
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon beef bouillon, optional
salt and pepper to taste


1. Using hands, mix the meat with 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Form into four patties, each about 1/2-inch thick.

2. In a large non-stick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Lay patties in pan and brown for about 7 minutes on the first side. Flip patties and add sliced onions and minced garlic, if using. Brown for about 10 more minutes.

3. Put patties and onions into a strainer to drain the excess grease, and in the meantime, heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in the same skillet you used before. When butter is melted, add flour and stir until mixed. Add milk, water, the remaining tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and parsley (and beef bouillon if using) and whisk or stir briskly to combine. Heat until mixture is bubbly and thickens, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.

4. Return meat and onion mixture to skillet and stir in with the sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover pan with lid. Cook for about 8 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over the cooked egg noodles.

Additional Notes: 

My husband had been wishing for some homemade salisbury steak, so I looked at a bunch of different recipes and created my own. As a side note, most of the recipes I saw contained mushrooms, which we don't eat, so this recipe may be a slight change from the traditional.

Preparation Time: 

15 minutes

Cooking Time:

Tammy's Review: 

This is a quick and easy salisbury steak recipe! It's quite delicious, and makes a great last-minute lunch or dinner. I think it tastes great without the beef bouillon, but I do like the garlic in it. :) My rating: 9/10


My husband didn't care for it, but he has some weird rule about how beef and noodles shouldn't go together. I thought it was very flavorful comfort food and enjoyed the leftovers since he didn't want them (more for me!).


So good! I will without a doubt make this again. The only thing I did different was I tripled the garlic to three cloves instead of one (we love our garlic). I cannot wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow at lunch!


I just made this for dinner... It was very easy to make and very tasty. The kids enjoyed it very much! I think next time I will add some mushrooms : )... I'll also try mashed potatoes in place of the noodles, just for variety.


We really enjoyed this! Very flavorful and comforting.


We LOVED this recipe. The gravy is FANTASTIC! We served this with mashed potatos instead of egg noodles...and there was enough gravy for the potatos too. No leftovers here. This recipe will make into our regular rotation. Excellent comfort food.


My family really loves this recipe and it's really easy to make. I use a griddle pan and cover it with foil to help it cook and help keep my stove top clean!
