We all have at one time or another had salisbury steak and we all secretly loved the cubed steak smothered in rich brown gravy. As Steve & I have gotten older, we’ve found that we aren’t too fond of cubed steak (super tough steak) or mushrooms. I came across this RECIPE on Pinterest and just by the ingredients, had to give it a try. Not to mention it’s mostly cooked in a crockpot! Now if you like mushrooms, by all means crack open a can (drain) and add it to the au jus step. So glad we tried out this recipe because it was incredibly delicious, moist and packed with flavor!
Printable Recipe: Crockpot Salisbury Steak
2 pounds ground beef or chuck
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 (10.75 ounces) cans of condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (1 ounce) packet dry au jus mix
3/4 cup water
Get the magic crockpot down.
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs and milk using your hands (wear disposable cooking gloves). Shape into 8 even and large patties.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add flour to a bowl that is larger than your patties. Once oil is hot, dredge patties in the flour to create a light coating. Add the coated patty to the skillet.
Brown patties on both sides.
Remove and layer in the crockpot (stacking alternately like a pyramid).
In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soups, au jus mix, and water with a whisk.
Pour over meat. Cook on low setting for 4 – 5 hours, until the ground beef is well done. Served best over mashed potatoes with a side of stuffing! Salisbury steak made with ground beef and without mushrooms, loving it!
