A Southern Comfort Meal At It's Finest: Pioneer Woman's Salisbury Steak

I will be completely honest, this meal is not right up my alley at all. I tend to steer from large pieces of meat for meals. I'm by no means a vegetarian I just tend to go for the smaller meat portions. But hey, every now and then everyone needs a good hearty southern meal and this is one that will not disappoint! 

If you aren't a 'cook' don't be intimidated by the number of ingredients in this recipe. It really is a pretty easy meal to make and it is delicious! Since I'm already serving a meal that is gonna break the scale, HA, I usually just go ahead and serve the steaks with mashed potatoes and typically glazed carrots or another fresh veggie.

Pioneer Woman's Salisbury Steak


Meat Mixture 
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2 Tbs heavy cream

1 Tbs ketchup
2 Tsps dry mustard
4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 cube beef bouillon, crumbled
Salt and Pepper
1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs olive oil

1 whole onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 cups beef broth, more if needed for thinning
1 Tbs ketchup
1 Tsp seasoning sauce, such as Kitchen Bouquet, optional. {I do not personally use this}
4 dashes Worcestershire
1 Tsp cornstarch
Salt and Pepper

For the meat mixture: Combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, heavy cream, ketchup, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bouillon and some salt and pepper. Knead until all combined. Form into 6 oval patties, and then make lines across the patties, with your finger, to give them a "steak" appearance (this is just for fun!).

Fry the patties in a skillet with the butter and oil over medium-high heat on both sides until no longer pink in the middle, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and pour off any excess grease. (If you use a good lean meat you won't have much if any grease)

For the gravy: Reduce the heat to medium and add in the sliced onions. Stir and cook until golden brown and somewhat soft, for several minutes. Add 1 & 3/4th cup beef stock, kethcup, seasoning sauce, if using, and the Worcestershire. Then combine the cornstarch with the remaining 1/4th cup beef broth and add to the gravy. Stir and cook  to reduce while thickening.

Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and more broth if needed for thinning. Then return the patties to the gravy. Spoon the gravy over the top and let them simmer and heat back up for a couple minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
