Reviews for Best Salisbury Steak
"Has been added to my favorites. I have made several times and find it the best around. Love just that bit of sage. I did not change A THING!"
"I doubled this recipe, but made no other modifications. My family loved it. Will definitely make again."
"Absolutely delicious. I had to triple it for a family dinner. The gravy was incredible. Only change I made was to use fresh mushrooms."
"Made this for the first time and without modification. Excellent!"
"Very good -family enjoyed! I used gluten free crackers."
"Comfort food at its best! I used a can of beef consumme' in place of water and bouillon."
"This was very easy and good, I did not have any mushrooms so I added small chopped peppers in their place."
"My family loved this recipe and we're not even big fans of gravy type dishes. I would double the mushrooms and add onions like others suggested to change it up and because we love these two items."
"This recipee was dead on. I took a short cut and used cube steak and omitted egg and cracker. It was a hit with my dinner party guests this evening."
"Made this tonight and my husband LOVED it!!! Used 1 1/2 lbs. of ground round so I kind of added a little bit extra of the ingredients, and to the gravy, along with the beef bouillon granules, I added a little Johnny's Au Jus and sliced onion rings. It was simply delicious! My husband told me to keep this recipe...so it's now on our menu! Thanks for a great entrée!"
