To make the Salisbury steaks

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup crushed saltine crackers
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dry thyme
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce

For the gravy

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups beef stock


  • Combine all of the ingredients for the Salisbury steaks in a bowl and mix well forming into 4 evenly sized patties.
  • In a medium sized pan, melt the butter and then add the diced onion.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes then add the flour and the Worcester sauce and soy sauce mixing well.
  • Gradually add the beef stock and bring to a simmer cooking over a low heat for about 5 minutes and the gravy becomes thicker.
  • Season with salt and pepper and keep over the lowest heat while you cook the beef patties.
  • In another non stick pan add a splash of olive oil over a medium heat.
  • Place each beef patty into the hot oil and cook for about 3-4 minutes before flipping them over and repeating on the other side until fully cooked.
  • Place the desired amount of patties on a plate with mashed potatoes and spoon over some of the brown gravy on top.
