When I was running late one night, a go-to recipe of my mom's popped into my head. Now it's one of my husband's favorites. It’s also a fast answer to unexpected company. —Patricia Swart, Galloway, New Jersey

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min.
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 2 medium red onions, divided
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

Nutritional Facts

1 serving: 244 calories, 12g fat (5g saturated fat), 76mg cholesterol, 192mg sodium, 10g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 1g fiber), 24g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1 starch, 1/2 fat.


  1. Thinly slice 1-1/2 onions; finely chop remaining onion half. In a large bowl, toss bread crumbs with chopped onion and seasonings. Add beef; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick oval patties.
  2. Place a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Add patties; cook 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160°. Remove from pan. Discard drippings from pan.
  3. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch, bouillon and water until smooth. In same skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sliced onions; cook and stir 5-7 minutes or until onions are tender.
  4. Stir in cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Return Salisbury steaks to pan, turning to coat with sauce; heat through. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.

"Just thought it was okay. Looked and smelled better than it tasted."

"OK, a few tweaks needed. This was delicious but 2 red onions was definitely too much. Also, I thought the sauce was a bit too little. I would double the sauce recipe. I found that the recommended cooking time for the burgers was not enough, ours were a bit too rare for our liking so I will go for about 10 minutes on each side. The butter amount to saute the onions and mushrooms in didn't last long enough but I think that will be solved by reducing the amount of onions. I loved the red onions in this recipe, my mom always made it with yellow onions and this had a much milder taste. Very good and I definitely will make this again....and again!"

"Whoa. Two medium red onions in our part of the woods was WAY too much. One onion would have been plenty. Overall this was so good. I've never had this home made, and once we tossed half the onions, it was perfect. I don't keep many recipes but this is a keeper!"

"Another winner on my list of recipes to depend upon for speed, ease and wonderful taste. I made no changes, but next time I will probably use wine instead of water. From one field editor to another, Good Job, Patricia"

"I haven't eaten Salisbury steak since it was served in my grade school cafeteria. We really enjoyed this dish, and I would make it again. I can't think of any way to improve it except maybe a dash of red wine? Thanks Patricia for a great go-to recipe."

"I have a favorite "go to" Salisbury Steak recipe and was reluctant to try this one. I loved the use of the soft bread crumbs which made the steaks really tender. I still like my original sauce better so will use this meat recipe with my original sauce recipe. It makes for a great make ahead meal to finish off baking in the oven."

"Delicious! I made this with both ground turkey (for those of us that don't like red meat), and ground beef - for those that do! I didn't use the reduced-sodium beef granules, and boy was it salty. For those that don't have reduced-sodium granules - I solved the salty problem by adding 1 cup of water. Delicious!"

"I made this recipe with my husband in mind because this is the type of comfort food he grew up with, I wasn't real excited because I've never liked salisbury steak. I was proved wrong, this was a great comfort meal on a chilly fall evening. I will certainly make it again, a happy husband and a happy tummy!"
