Sep 23, 2015 · Salisbury Steak is a meat patty usually made out ground beef, spices, and bread crumbs. Once the meat patty is formed, it is then fried, and smothered with a rich creamy onion gravy. Sounds pretty dang good huh? Well it is! Lemme tell you how I make my homemade salisbury steak! Excellent recipe. My husband loves this meal. The only change I would make is to use 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup instead of the chicken. Both hubby and I didnt care for the recipe when I used the cream of chicken (didnt taste like salisbury steak). Added chopped onion to the mixture for added flavor and use ground SIRLOIN--it's the best.
