This Salisbury Steak Recipe is a great source of protein and full of flavor. Hubby made this one for dinner and it was so delicious that I had to share the recipe.
My hubby has been doing a lot of the cooking since my Gastric Bypass Surgery and when he asked what I wanted this week – I said Salisbury Steak. I was craving a nice meat dish. So he cooked some up and it was A-MAZING !!!
The meat is high in protein and all in all it was not bad in the calorie and fat department either. If you are looking for a rich and yummy recipe to try then I say this is the one. It is a family pleaser, trust me.
Here is what you will need for this recipe:
- 1 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef (hubby used the extra lean)
- 1 Egg
- 3 Tbsp of crushed Ritz Crackers or any Buttery Cracker (hubby used the Ritz)
- 2 Tbsp of finely Chopped Onion
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Pepper
- 1/4 tsp Poultry Seasoning
- 2 (4 ounce) Cans of Sliced Mushrooms with the juice
- 3 Tbsp Butter (you can sub Low Fat Butter – hubby did not)
- 3 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
- 3 Cups Milk (you can sub Low Fat Milk – hubby did not)
- 3 Beef Bouillon Cubes
In a medium sized bowl mix together the Ground Beef, Egg, Cracker Crumbs, Onion, Salt, Pepper and Poultry Seasoning using your hands (you can always get the kids to do this – lol). Then shape that into 6 patties about 1 inch thick.
Next fry the patties in a large frying pan over med-high heat for about 3-4 minutes per side or just until browned. Drain off any excess grease/fat and set aside the patties on a dish.
Next melt the Butter in the frying pan and then add in the Mushrooms. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the Flour and mix until blended. Stir in the Milk and Beef Bouillon Cubes. Continue cooking and stirring over medium heat until it is smooth and starts to thicken up. Then return the patties to the gravy and cook over low heat uncovered for about 10 minutes while stirring occasionally.
That is it – how EASY is that?
Keep in mind this makes a lot of gravy so you can serve it over pasta – maybe even the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta I spoke about in a prior post. Or you can have some mashed potatoes on the side like we did.
This recipe will make 6 Servings.

That is not so bad at all I think and that is with making no adjustments such as using Low Fat Milk and Butter etc…. Hubby also used the Extra Lean Ground Beef so that probably brought down the Total Fat for us to. Considering that I could not eat a whole serving I was good with that and sooo worth it.
That is my plate with my portion in the photo above. DO NOTE – that is a salad sized plate and I only had 1/2 of a Salisbury Steak. IT killed me that I could not eat more of it – my head wanted to, but my pouch said “NO”. That portion of Mashed Potatoes is nothing compared to what I would eat prior to surgery – you have no idea. I was still very satisfied.
The kids absolutely loved it too and it is another recipe that makes it into my special “Do Over” Recipe book.
