Salisbury Steak with Onion Gravy


  • 500 g ground beef
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 2 and 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Patties:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, eggs, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and black pepper.
    • Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined.
    • Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and shape them into oval patties.
  2. Cook the Patties:
    • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
    • Carefully place the patties in the skillet and cook until browned on both sides, approximately 4-5 minutes per side.
    • Once cooked, remove the patties from the skillet and keep them warm.
  3. Prepare the Gravy:
    • In the same skillet, add the sliced onions and a sprinkle of garlic powder.
    • Cook the onions until they are translucent and slightly caramelized.
    • Sprinkle flour over the onions and stir to combine, allowing the flour to cook for a minute.
    • Gradually pour in the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
    • Cook the gravy for about 7 minutes, or until it thickens to your desired consistency.
  4. Finish Cooking:
    • Return the cooked patties to the skillet with the gravy.
    • Allow the patties to simmer in the gravy for an additional 10 minutes, ensuring they are heated through and fully coated with the sauce.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the Salisbury steak patties hot, with a generous spoonful of gravy over the top.
    • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley if desired.
