Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

I don't think I've had Salisbury Steak since I was a kid. It's one of those recipes I just never think of making. When I saw this recipe was a slow cooker version, why not give it a try? I added potatoes to the slow cooker because they seemed a natural with the steak and gravy. In looking at this picture, I wish I'd added some carrots or something for some color. Picture aside, this was delicious. The packaged onion soup gives the hamburger a great flavor, the mushroom soup and au jus make for a hearty gravy. Just add a veggie or salad and you have a perfect week night meal!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak
Recipe adapted from Christina's Taste Test Project
2 pounds ground beef
1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
½ cup seasoned breadcrumbs
¼ cup milk
¼ all purpose flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup (I used cream of mushroom)
1 (1 ounce) packet dry au jus mix
¾ cup water

1. Mix together ground beef, onion soup mix, breadcrumbs and milk
2. Shape into 8 patties
3. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat
4. Dredge the patties in flour to coat and quickly brown on both sides
5. Place browned patties in slow cooker, stacking like a pyramid
6. In a separate bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, au jus mix and water
7. Pour over patties
8. Cook on low setting for 4 to 5 hours or until meat is well done

SUGGESTION: You can form and brown the patties ahead of time and store in the fridge until ready to use.

  1. This looks really good...especially for the cold days we have been having.

  2. It looks great, and from the slow cooker, I'd never have thought to do that, it looks so good and so hearty, good idea on adding the potatoes! I'd love it with some mushrooms and onions, too!

  3. Salisbury steak is a dish that I've heard a lot about but never tried. It looks like some serious comfort food to me!

  4. Looks so much better than all the other salisbury steak I've tried. And gotta love anything you can whip up in the slow cookier!

  5. I have never had Salisbury Steak but am so tempted to try it now after reading this post. Looks delicious.
