This recipe goes together quickly and does not need a lot of time in the slow cooker. It's a delicious way to add flavor to ground beef and the children love it! The gravy is delightful served over mashed potatoes.

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat, and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, au jus mix, and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours, until ground beef is well done.

I made this last week, and I decided after contemplation, that it would be simpler for me to do the entire recipe in an electric skillet, and boy was I right. :) I browned the patties and then added the soups, etc, and let it all simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes. It was so easy, and so good, though a bit salty. Next time, I will only use half of the onion soup mix, and low sodium soup. I only had one dirty pan to clean, so to me, it was awesome this way. :) Read More

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. Also, Country Crock now makes mashed potatoes you can buy in the refridgerator isle of the grocery store, they are kind of expensive, but they are sooo good. Makes the meal even easier since you can microwave them! Goes great with the salisbury steak! Read More

This recipe was really easy and very tasty. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it was a bit salty. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will use low sodium soup and quarter some potatoes to help with that. I browned the hamburger patties the night before. Then the next morning threw it all in the crockpot and was off to work. Thanks for the post. Read More

This is fantastic salisbury steak. By far the best I've ever had. I cut the recipe in half and only made 4 patties. I omitted cream of chicken soup and substituted a jar of beef gravy. I also added an entire package of sliced baby portobello mushrooms. The sauce turned out wonderful but the patties were even better! Served with egg noodles and green beans. Thanks! Read More

What a great recipe! I used extra lean ground beef and beefy onion soup mix along with the Italian breadcrumbs and milk to make the patties. For the sauce I used two cans of reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup mixed with the whole packet of au jus and water... came out perfect, not too salty. My two boys and my husband really ate this up! Thanks for a keeper! Read More

I have been cooking for 35+ years and this was fabulous! My husband and kids (who are very picky) cleared their plates and said I could make this "Anytime"! I made mashed potatoes to go with this dinner - yum! I used 1/2 of the dry onion/mushroom soup mix so it would not be too salty. But it is MUCH BETTER with the CREAM OF CHICKEN then the Cream of Mushroom!!! It may sound strange, but once you add the Dry Au Jus Mix to the Cream of Chicken, it turns it to a beef flavor, not chicken. Instead of water I also added Chicken Broth. Beef broth would make it too "beefy". This gave it a very nice, smooth flavor. I also added a Jar of Mushrooms (drained). This is the 3rd time I've made it in a month!! Very unusual for my household. I also like it because it is so easy. Don't over mix your beef mixture, that will make it tough. If you handle with care, it will not fall apart. I love it when I find recipes that are wonderful and cooked in slow cooker/crock pot. =) Read More

This was an excellent recipe. This was a huge hit everyone loved it. I did not have aujus mix used 2 beef boulion cubes instead. I did use the cream of chicken soup will try cream of mushroom next time. Just because we like the mushrooms and that flavor. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More

Like other reviewers I changed up the recipe a little. I used cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken, used beef broth instead water, used gravy mix instead of aujus mix and added a few "glugs" of worchestershire sauce. All 3 kids and hubby loved it and it was easy to make. Will make again. Read More
