This meat dish can be made in 25 minutes or made ahead and reheated with the gravy in the microwave. I often double the recipe and freeze one batch of cooked steaks and gravy for an even faster meal on an especially busy night.—Carol Callahan, Rome, Georgia

"Super simple and good. I did make a change with the gravy. I used dried onion soup packets and it made such a rich, flavorful gravy that I will stick with that method. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Carol."

"Used bread crumbs (bc I am "lazy"). Made my own gravy (did use worchestershire per someone else's suggestion). Was out of horseradish (go figure), SO am looking forward to trying again. otherwise, delicious!"

"I've been making this recipe for 15 years or more. I would give it 10 stars if possib!le. Don't omit the horseradish. Made it today, but was short on horseradish....used a bit of hr mustard. Turned out good. Will NEVER buy banquet Salisbury steaks again. Easy, simple, yummy. Good over mashed potatoes or buttered noodles."

"I have been looking for this recipe for years. I first saw it in Taste of Home, but my issue got lost in a move. This is the best salisbury steak recipe I have tasted. The horseradish makes the differenct. With fall around the corner, this dish is perfect as comfort food. I serve it with mashed potatoes, peas and a salad."

"Fabulous flavor! Definitely loved the horseradish addition. Made it for dinner tonight with the onions and mushrooms on the side and used bread crumbs instead of saltines, no additional salt. Kids loved it over homemade mashed potatoes and with broccoli...great dinner for the family."

"Great recipe. l love the subtle background flavor provided by the horseradish. The recipe indicates that salt is optional and I believe it can be left out completely. I used package gravy and that provided plenty of salt. Don't leave the horseradish out. It is not overpowering."

"Tried this last night and my husband informed me it was a "BIG" winner. The only change I made was using Panko instead of crackers and packaged brown gravy. I did brown onions and mushrooms to add to the gravy. Definitely will make this often."
