"These are delicious steaks my mom used to make when I was growing up. They are easy too! They go great with mashed potatoes or white rice and have a flavorful sauce left over, almost like a gravy."

  1. Mix ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, and onion soup mix together in a bowl; shape into 6 oblong patties.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties until browned, about 5 minutes per side.
  3. Stir golden mushroom soup and water together in a bowl; pour over the patties in the skillet. Turn patties to coat in the liquid. Bring liquid to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and cook until steaks are very firm, hot, and grey in the center, 10 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can sub ground turkey for the ground beef.

We all LOVED this! I used a little more than 1 pound of ground beef and got 5 patties out of the recipe. Also, I doubled the sauce, but only used 1/2 the water b/c we wanted the sauce to be on t...

this recipe was delicious! made it just as the directions said (with the exception of adding my own mushrooms sautéed with a little garlic). I usually make a much more fancy and complex salsbury...

I added Worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture and processed on with the recipe. It turned out pretty good, and the gravy was excellent.

Definitely adding to the book. Made this tonight for the family and we all loved it. Sauteed some mushrooms to add with the soup and added some flour at the end to thicken. Loved It!

Next time I'm adding fewer bread crumbs though. It was a tiny bit on the dry side but really authentic tasting. I made my own gravy instead of the mushroom soup. The onion soup mix worked wel...

My picky teenagers love this, along with my husband and I. I do use a pack of gravy mix at the end, on the side. This is a great tasting and way easy recipe!

I added a can of mushrooms. It was very good.

Easy peasy recipe that tastes great, this one's going in the regular meal plan.
