Salisbury Steak Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 lbs ground chuck
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons scallions, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or coconut oil)
  • 2 cups onions, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 4 teaspoons Parmesan cheese
  • Artisan bread of your choice
  • Swiss cheese


Saute the onions and mushrooms until golden

  1. Combine chuck, parsley, scallion, salt, and pepper. Divide evenly into 4 portions and shape into 3/4 to 1-inch thick oval patties.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons of flour in a shallow dish; dredge each patty in flour. Reserve 1 teaspoon flour.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and sauté 3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Remove from pan.
  4. Add onions & mushrooms to pan.  Add in sugar; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste; sauté 1 minute, or until paste begins to brown. Sprinkle onions with reserved flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in broth and wine, and then add the salt and thyme.
  5. Return meat to pan and bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 10 minutes. Sauce should thicken like a gravy.
  6. Slice bread and coat with olive oil.  Bake in the oven at 450 for 1 minute per side.  Place a slice (or two!) of Swiss over toasted bread and cover with the steaks and gravy.
  7. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan cheese.
