Salisbury Steak with Mushrooms and Creamy Mashed Potatoes

  • Salisbury Steak with Mushrooms and Creamy Mashed Potatoes is a comfort food classic, but I promise you it tastes so much better than what you remember getting from your high school lunch line.

    The first time I told my husband we were having this for dinner he said “YUCK!”  That was one school lunch he couldn’t stand.  A flavorless piece of meat that was tough and dry.  So, I was determined to make it taste so much better.

    First off the meat needs a little help or it will be flavorless.  Many recipes use mustard and ketchup in their meat but I didn’t.  I used good old Worcestershire sauce with some garlic and onion powder.

    After frying your “steaks” leave all of those wonderful brown bits in the pan because they will add a lot of flavor.  Saute some onions and mushrooms along with your brown bits.

    Now, I do realize salisbury steak normally doesn’t have mushrooms, but I love mushrooms and they too add a lot of flavor.  If you don’t like them leave them out or chop them up really small.  I promise you won’t mind them.  My husband HATES mushrooms and he gobbled them up in this wonderful dish.

    Now, for the gravy.

    I used flour to thicken mine but if you prefer cornstarch- go for it.  There is already a good amount of flavor going on in the pan but more will be added with broth, soy sauce and garlic powder.

    Don’t forget to serve it over the creamy mashed potatoes.  Or if your prefer- noodles or rice.  Serve along with your favorite veggie and you have a wonderfully satisfying meal!!

    3. Remove from skillet and add in the butter, onions and mushrooms. Cook and stir over medium to medium high heat for 5-6 minutes or until browned. Sprinkle with flour, stir and cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the broth and soy sauce. Stir in the garlic powder. Taste for salt and pepper and add as necessary.
    4. Add the steaks back into the gravy and simmer for a couple minutes to warm them back up.
    5. Drain the potatoes and mash with the cream cheese, milk and garlic powder. Serve with the "steaks" and gravy.
