Reviews for Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy
"Awesome. It was too sweet for my taste so I added some beef bullion. Also added some chopped caramelized onion at the end to freshen it up. Served it with mashed potatoes."
"Did anyone, besides myself, find the gravy sweet? I followed the recipe ingredients. I have never used ketchup in a gravy before."
"This is a favorite at our house. I first saw the recipe in the Taste of Home magazine and have been making it ever since. Delicious. I normally serve this dish with rice. Instead of using bread crumbs, I always mix oats with the meat before making the patties.. Like many other cooks, I like extra gravy, as it is so good. I too found the amount of liquid with the meat and egg mixture caused the patties to fall apart, so reduce the amount and use the extra liquid in the gravy."
"Delicious but it wouldn't hold together."
"Everyone thought it was delicious. Need more gravy"
"This a great recipe. Family loves this recipe and requests it often. It was a big hit. Doubled the gravy so there would be lots for the noodles. Yummy!!!"
"I have made this a number of times and forgot to review. Very good!"
"I made this for dinner yesterday and it was very very good. I did double the gravy and it had a great taste to it. I would definitely make this again!"
"This is fantastic! May want to double the sauce. Fast, easy and delicious!"
"This is a wonderful dish. I prepared this exactly as written except as others have recommended I doubled the gravy amount to make more gravy to go over the noodles. Delicious!"
"I found this recipe years ago in the TOH magazine and have made it many many times, it is so so easy to make, the flavor is amazing, LOVE this dish, I double the sauce as I like to have lots of sauce to pour over the noodles, it is always a big hit everytime i make it, this is a great recipe for the cook just starting out as its easy to follow and turns out delicious"
"The gravy had a strong taste of onion. I love onions and it's rare that I feel there is too much of an onion taste. I would use a regular brown gravy in place of the onion gravy. The patties assembled easy and held up well."
"I found this recipe to be very easy to prepare. The variations I made were minimal, I used 2 pounds of 85/15 lean ground beef, and added just about 1/8 cup more bread crumbs. I used Italian flavored bread crumbs with a few Panko mixed in, (This worked really well). As one other person suggested I would double the sauce/gravy ingredients. There was barely enough to go around. By using 2 pounds of hamburger I ended up with 9 nice patties. This was a hit with my husband and I will definitely make this again. Good for a beginner to try."
"We loved this. The only change I made was I served it with mashed potatoes."
"This was delicious! I used lean ground beef and followed the recipe with a few changes. I made 12 meatballs (for 6) people) instead. Also, I doubled the sauce recipe. I browned the meatballs and added the sauce and simmered until meatballs were done. removed the meatballs, spooned out the grease and thickened the sauce to make the gravy.I added 1 TBSP of apple cider vinegar to the sauce after removing the meatballs. from fhquilting"
"Thanks for the sugestion to use onion soup mix as I always have it on hand. I use it often for gravy. loved this recipe."
"I found this recipe in my Mom's recipe long after she passed away. She had marked it "very good" so I tried it. I agree with her. It was very good and also very easy. Will definitely make it again. Way to go Mom!"
"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 brown....my 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."
"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."
"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."
"I first found this recipe in an old cookbook 25 years ago. We have always loved it. I too make extra sauce if I can. My recipe differs slightly by adding 4 T. of water instead of two. I actually think it makes the grave a little thinner and milder. One time I made appetizer size meatballs instead of patties for an appetizer. My dinner guests were nuts about them. This has been a go-to recipe for me for a long time and will be for a long time."
"This recipe was wonderful! A huge hit with my family! Would definately make again!"
"I have made this recipe many times. I usually don't like recipes with canned soup but this one is the exception. It has never tasted too sweet, or too much like ketchup. I love it and my family enjoys it too. It's one of my 'dog-eared, stained and wrinkled paper' favorites!"
"I made this last night and moved the recipe right into my 'Favorite Recipe' cook book. I will make this time and time again, but double up on the gravy. Excellent recipe!"
"I decided to give this recipe a try when I came across it while looking for dinner ideas one night. My husband absolutely loves salisbury steak so I felt I couldn't go wrong with this recipe because of all the positive reviews. Boy was I wrong. No one in my family liked it at all. Not even my husband. I doubled the recipe exactly as it was written but found the sauce to be way too sweet and to taste too much like ketchup. It was not good at all. I even attempted to make it better by adding a second can of soup, with no success. If I ever attempt this recipe again I will cut the ketchup down considerably and add some beef broth."
"I have been making this recipe ever since it appeared in 1998! It is a favorite at our house. I always double the sauce part since we like lots of sauce. It there is leftovers, they are yummy too!"
"Very good, and the leftovers are yummy too!"
"I've made this recipe many times. I aways buy an extra can of onion gravy to make more gravy. My hub and I love it and we make two meals out of it."
"My family loves this recipe."
"Have made this recipe for years. Absolutely love it."
"This was really tasty. The patties were very moist and soft and the gravy was very delicious. I also added fresh sliced mushrooms. I doubled the recipe with the exception of the canned soup. Will make sure I have the extra can next time. The family really enjoyed this dish and want it again. I had 2 patties left over and they were eaten the next day and they tasted even better."
"I have made this several times over the years and LOVE it. I double the gravy portion and make mashed potatoes to go with it instead of the egg noodes. Always a hit!"
"My family loves this salisbury steak recipe and it is very easy to make."
"This is wonderful and so easy to make. It has become a weeknight favorite. we ususally enjoy it with mashed potatos instead of noodles."
"I thought this was a delicious meal - like what "Mom would make.""
