This recipe was certainly easy and quick, but we found it unexciting. By the time it was cooked, the horseradish flavor had mellow to barely noticeable. Onion and black pepper were the main flavors which came through.

I made this tonight and it is a definite 5-star recipe. I followed the instructions but only used 1 teaspoon horseradish. I felt a tablespoon would be too much. It was delicious. Just FYI, 5 saltine crackers equals 1/4 cup. I served it with mashed potatoes and we both cleaned our plates. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

I have made this several times now. I really like it. I dont use jar gravy though, I make my own. I usually make a beef gravy, but sometimes a mushroom gravy or as someone posted, a dry onion soup mix gravy. Very versatile recipe.

This was good. Will make again. I served with spaghetti squash instead of noodles.

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.

This is a family favorite! I double the recipe and make extra gravy for mashed potatoes, I use the instant gravy packets.

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.
