Simple Salisbury Steak

This Simple Salsibury Steak (originally found on recipe has been made a couple of times by our Freezer Co-op with with rave reviews. Both of my picky children (and my picky hubby) eat this up with no complaints. Every one I have passed this recipe on to has praised it as well, so it is a real winner!

  • 1 can of reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion or equivalent in dried onion
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

In a bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of the soup, beef, bread crumbs, egg, and onion. Shape firmly into 6 patties. (If you are using raw meat, you can freeze it now and brown the mushrooms and freeze them too, or you can freeze everything after cooking)

In a skillet over medium heat, cook patties, a few at a time, until browned on both sides, spoon off fat, set aside.

Stir in remaining soup and mushrooms, return the patties to the skillet, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until done, turning patties occasionally.

Allow to cool and place patties and sauce into freezer bag. Lay flat to freeze.

To cook: Allow to thaw. Reheat and eat!

  1. I just want to add that nearly all of us agree that extra gravy is "required." I will buy those envelopes of powdered gravy mix and even slip one into the freezer bag with the other ingredients so it can't be used for something else before I need it for this!

  2. My family loves this recipe! This is another recipe that I will double when cooking & I will divide it into 3 meals for my family of 4.

  3. A 16 oz package of fresh mushrooms yields approximately 6 cups sliced.
