What is Simple Salisbury Steak? It's like little meatloaves cooked in a skillet and smothered in beef gravy.  When you have a package of ground beef, this is one of the quickest comfort food dishes you can make- 3 steps and 30 minutes and it's done!  Shape the beef patties, brown them in a skillet, then add the rich beefy gravy and simmer.  Simple Salisbury Steak is best served with a side that pairs well with gravy, like mashed potatoes, rice or noodles, or for a really quick option, serve it on toast as a hot open-faced sandwich!


cost per recipe: $4.99

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 can (10 1/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Beef Gravy


  • Step 1

    Season the beef with salt and pepper.  Thoroughly mix the beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg and water in a bowl and shape firmly into 4 (1/2-inch thick) oval patties.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the patties). Pour off any fat.

  • Step 3

    Add the gravy and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the patties are done.

    This recipe was easy and made large servings. Like Beachwaves i used Golden Mushroom on the bottom of the pan but poured brown gravy on top which added depth and made a beautiful dark golden brown gravy. I took one serving and Immediately hid it way back in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch. A Hit!

    First time making Salisbury Steak and it turned out great! I made some changes to the recipe. Didn't use the water. I used Pepperidge Farm Stuffing Mix instead of bread crumbs. I also used a pack of Lipton onion soup mix, sprinkled in some all-purpose flour and Worcestershire sauce. I also seasoned my meat with some of my seasonings. I removed my patties out of the skillet, poured out grease & wiped skillet out before putting patties back in. I use frozen onions so I put those in the mixture & when I poured my gravy on the meat I added more of the onions into the gravy! This will definitely be in the rotation!!

    I made this tonight for dinner. The only thing that I did different was I added a can of Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup to the bottom of the pan with a splash of water to dilute the soup and then I poured the Campbell's beef gravy on top. I put some away to take to work with me. When I woke up I was told that the dinner was so good that they even ate what I was going to take to work.

    Made this for the first time. Husband orders it occasionally at the diner. I added some garlic and onion powder. I used an additional can of golden mushroom soup because I needed some volume and it added something to it. A quick, family friendly dinner. Will make it again!!
