Crockpot Salisbury Steak

Here are a few beef suggestions for the upcoming holiday along with a few sides:
Tin Foil Dinners
Beef and Vegetable Kabobs
Grilled London Broil
Cool Cucumber Salad
Cucumber, Tomato, Onion Salad

Now on to today's recipe. I am not a huge fan of using my crock pot these days. I find I can make most dishes taste better on the stove or in the oven but there are days when I find I still use it. We were going to be gone all day and I did not want to spend money on take out or a dinner out I went with a crock pot meal. Overall this recipe was pretty good. Next time though I'd cook the patties a little longer on the stove top because inside the patties the meat was a little pink and I just can't stomach pink meat. I really liked the gravy that was made with the meat. Also for a little tip on the mashed potatoes, I prepped the potatoes for cooking then placed them in a foil packet that I made and stuck it on top of the cooking dish in the crock pot while we were gone. I was then able to make mashed potatoes from the cooked potatoes in my packet in just a matter of minutes.

Crockpot Salisbury Steak
adapated from Mommy's Kitchen

1 lb Lean Ground Beef
1/3 Cup Bread Crumbs or Cracker Crumbs
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
1 Egg
Small Onion Sliced
1 Can Condensed Beef Broth
1 – 4oz Can Sliced Mushrooms (Drained)
2 T. Cornstarch
2T Water
1 - Packet Brown Gravy Mix

Mix First 5 ingredients together and shape into ovals about ¾ inches thick. Cook patties in a skillet turning once until brown. Add onion mushroom and beef broth heat to boiling. Reduce heat cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove patties to the crockpot. Heat mixture until boiling. Mix water and cornstarch together to make a paste. Add to boiling mixture with a wire whisk and whisk until gravy begins to thicken. Add 1 packet of brown or mushroom gravy prepared according to package directions and add to the beef broth gravy. I added the gravy to the top of my patties in the crockpot, placed my potato packet on the very top and cooked on low for 8 hours.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. I always tend to overcook things in the crock pot. I got a new crock pot cookbook that seems to have some great sounding recipes. We'll have to see!

  2. I find that food cooked in the crock pot is gummy tasting. I play with the crock pot and sometimes I have hits and sometimes I have misses. The lead factor in the crock pot really prevents me from wanting to use it on a more regular basis.
