Slow-Cooker-Salisbury-Steaks-Recipe

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steaks Recipe

  • 1 lb Lean Ground Beef
  • 1/3 Cup Bread Crumbs or Cracker Crumbs
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • + other seasonings of your choice
  • 1 EggSmall Onion Sliced (I use half) (Optional)
  • 1 Can Condensed Beef Broth
  • 1 – 4oz Can Sliced Mushrooms (Drained)
  • 2 T. Cornstarch
  • 2T Water
  • 1 – Packet Brown Gravy Mix or 1 – Jar/Can Brown GravyMix


First 5 ingredients together and shape into ovals about ¾ inches thick. Cook patties in a skillet turning once until brown. Add onion mushroom and beef broth heat to boiling. Reduce heat cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove patties to a casserole dish and keep warm. Heat mixture until boiling. Mix water and cornstarch together to make a paste. Add to boiling mixture with a wire whisk and whisk until gravy begins to thicken. I don’t think the gravy is hearty enough for me so I also add 1 packet of brown or mushroom gravy prepared according to package directions and add to the beef broth gravy. I then pour the gravy over the patties in the casserole dish and bake at 350 until bubbly. If preparing this in the crock pot just add the browned patties to the crockpot. Prepare gravy accordly and pour on top. Cover and cook for 3 hours on low. Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or noodles
