Salisbury Steak From The Slow Cooker

Salisbury Steak From The Slow Cooker

Ontario, Canada


It’s comfort food central with this Salisbury Steak recipe. Homemade beef patties simmered in a tasty brown mushroom gravy. So tender, so tasty, so darn good. I remember having my first Salisbury Steak back in the 60’s in the form of a Swanson Salisbury Steak TV dinner. An absolute treat for a young boy and I still make them regularly. An easy Sunday dinner without to much fuss as the slow cooker does all the work. So let’s have some fun and get cooking! 



  • 6 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion , sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups beef stock
  • 1 package brown gravy mix (dry)
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tsp Dijon
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 4 tbsp water


Beef Patties

  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt & pepper to taste



  • Quickly saute mushrooms & onions till brown, then place in slow cooker
  • Combine beef patty ingredients and form 6 patties
  • Brown over medium high heat, don’t over cook
  • Layer beef patties over mushrooms
  • Combine remaining ingredients, except water and cornstarch
  • Pour over beef and cook on low 5 hours
  • Once cooked, remove patties and set aside

Served over mashed potatoes or rice with lots of mushroom gravy and a side of peas, carrots, corn or your favorite fresh vegetable. Great for a leftover lunch if you have any left! Doesn’t get much better.
