Salisbury Steak

Salisbury Steak

BJ’s wholesale club has recently had good prices on ground beef. The other evening I found myself wondering what to do with some of it. Salisbury steaks came to mind, which is unusual because I don’t remember ever making them before. I searched for recipes and found quite a variety. I combined ideas I liked, but mostly went with something simple.

The family enjoyed it and liked having something a little different. I used mushroom flavoring in the cream soup and put sliced mushroom on top where my husband could easily remove them.

    Oh gosh I love your website! I’ve just discovered it and I’m glad for people like you who make the daunting task of being gluten free look yummy (and not too hard)! Thanks so much! I’ll be trying these salisbury steaks soon :)

      Welcome, Kylee. Thanks for your encouragement. Making gluten free look yummy and not too hard is exactly what I hope to do!

      No, I didn’t add chicken bouillon. Actually, this time I just added beef bouillon and no mushrooms because I was in a hurry. I did add mushroom on top of the steaks, though.

    This looks and sounds delicious. I want to print the recipe but am getting a message that the print button is a broken link.

    Can you check this, please? In the meantime, I’ll cut and paste into Word.

    Thank you!

    Linda, if potato flakes are used in lieu of GF bread crumbs, does the quantity of 1/4-cup remain the same?

    Thanks! ;D

    I just made these tonight and they were a hit! I sautéed some celery & onion in the butter before adding in the rice flour/stock/milk combo in the cream soup. I used 1 piece of Gluten Free Udi’s Bread put in the grinder for the bread crumbs. After the patties browned up, I poured the 1/2c stock in to loosen the “brownings”, then poured in the “cream” soup. I also added in 1 tsp of garlic powder to the cream soup & the meat mixture to pump up the flavor!Wonderful!

    My family loves Salisbury Steaks but I am highly allergic to mushrooms. Do you suggest something other than cream of mushroom soup I could use for this? Our son has been diagnosed with severe narcolepsy and the Dr is suggesting GF for the next 2 months to see if we can avoid heavy medication. I’m really trying hard to adjust him without major interruption.

    could you possibly post some recipes sans eggs? I can get beef to form patties without eggs. Just work the meat, bread crumbs, etc a little longer by hand, and it will stick together!

    Hi there,
    Long time follower first time commentator. 😉 I made this tonight using plane potatoe flakes and a can of organic cream of mushroom soup.


    Will probably cook the “steaks” a bit longer in the oil for them to get a bit firmer, but what an amazing recipe.

    Thank you as usual for sharing.
