Best Salisbury Steak Recipe

A good recipe for Salisbury Steak is hard to find! I remember enjoying it often when I was growing up, but when I decided to add it to my recipe collection, I wasn't able to find it in my modern cookbooks. I came up with these ingredients on my own and experimented until it tasted like I recalled. It makes a hearty meal when served with mashed potatoes. —Faye Hintz Springfield, Missouri

"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."

"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 it's now on our menu! Thanks for a great entrée!"
