  • 2 lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1 Tbsp steak sauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kansas City steak seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • olive oil
  • For the gravy:
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 8 oz sliced portabella mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 14 oz can low sodium beef broth
  • 3 Tbsp chili sauce
  • 1 Tbsp steak sauce
  • 1 tsp Kansas City steak seasoning
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • black pepper to taste


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the ground beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, chili sauce, steak sauce, egg, steak seasoning, garlic and onion powders. Mix until blended. 
  • Form into 4 large, 6 medium, or 8 small oval steaks. I use a spoon to roughly divide the mixture while it's still in the bowl.
  • Drizzle a large skillet with a few drizzles of olive oil. Brown the steaks over medium-high heat on both sides, then remove from the pan. (It's not necessary to cook them all the way through at this point, just brown.)
  • Reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings and discard the rest from the skillet. Add the sliced onion and mushrooms to the pan and cook over medium-high for 2-3 minutes scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  • Add 1/4 cup of flour and stir well coating the veggies. 
  • Add the broth, chili sauce and seasonings to the mushrooms. Stir until blended and allow to bubble and thicken slightly for 2-3 minutes.
  • Lower the heat to simmer and return the Salisbury steaks to the gravy.
  • Cover and simmer  for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Uncover and check the gravy for thickness. If it needs thickening, dissolve 1 tablespoon of all purpose flour in cold water, and add it to the gravy, stirring constantly. Continue this process until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Serve immediately.


To add a rich brown color to the gravy use a concentrated beef flavoring or browning sauce like Kitchen Bouquet. Add in small amounts adjusting to your taste.
