Family Beef Salisbury Steak


This family-favorite steak recipe is quick and easy. Anyone can make this, from the seasoned long-time cook to beginning newlyweds who are just building their recipe collection. I plan on giving this to my son's future wife at her upcoming bridal shower!

Prep Time:

Total Time:
1 hrs 10 mins


  • cooking spray

  • 1 ¼ pounds extra-lean ground beef

  • ½ cup finely chopped sweet onion

  • cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1 (14 ounce) can beef broth, divided

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ cup flour, or as needed

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 small sweet onion, or to taste, sliced thin


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a large casserole dish with cooking spray.

  2. Lightly mix ground beef, 1/2 cup onion, bread crumbs, 3 tablespoons beef broth, milk, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl; divide into 5 portions and shape into patties.

  3. Season flour with salt and pepper in a wide, shallow dish. Gently lay patties into the flour to lightly coat.

  4. Heat vegetable oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties in hot oil until browned completely, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove patties to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess grease.

  5. Stir remaining beef broth, cream of mushroom soup, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl until smooth.

  6. Arrange drained patties into the prepared casserole dish. Spread onion slices atop the patties and pour the soup mixture over the patties to cover completely.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 45 minutes to 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Notes:

This can also be made in a slow cooker instead of in the oven by moving the browned patties to a slow cooker, adding other ingredients from there, and cooking on Low for 4 to 5 hours.

This is delicious served with mashed potatoes, buttered egg noodles, or rice.

It could easily be made with ground turkey for a lower calorie alternative.

I use all msg-free products and Healthy Request brand soup, and nobody knows the difference.

I leave extra seasoning to my guests so some might not find this salty enough.
