"Not fond of this. I used 90 per cent lean ground beef, maybe that was why I didn't feel like it had a lot of flavor. The patties did get a little too fault.... and that didn't help, but I just didn't like the over-all flavor with the onion soup. There are much better salisbury steak recipes to be had."

"I first found this recipe around 18 years ago and have always loved it. The tanginess of the gravy is so good."

Reviewed Nov. 2, 2014

"I liked the pattie flavor although I had to cook them on medium high as medium was taking much longer than the 3-4 minutes per side that was suggested. They also never reached the 160 degree temperature, as read on an instant meat thermometer, yet were cooked through. Did not care for the gravy though. It was too tangy for me."

"I didn't have French onion soup so I used one package from a box of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup & Dip Mix. Following the Soup directions, I used 1/2 the water called for and out came condensed soup! I liked the gravy the soup mix produced."

Reviewed Feb. 13, 2014

"This recipe was just ok. My kids didn't eat it at all. I really liked how the patties turned out, but the gravy was disappointing. It was such an overpowering flavor of onion, it needed something to balance it out. Next time I will use regular Brown gravy."
