Can You Grill the Salisbury Steaks?

Yes you definitely can! You can make these into grilled burgers if you want too. The flavor is even better if you grill the Salisbury steak patties. Just grill the patties on the bbq or grill. Get a nice charred crust on them and the flavors will be crazy amazing. But you’ll have to make the gravy separately. And although it won’t have the same flavor because the meat wasn’t cooked in the same pan, the grilled flavors in the burger patties themselves will make up for it. 

Other Toppings for salisbury steak burgers or sandwiches:

  • Add mashed potatoes for an extra delicious and filling burger! And don’t forget extra gravy on top. 
  • If you want extra crunch, add some slices of cucumber or crispy lettuce leaves.
  • Hot sauce is always a nice balance of heat against the creamy rich gravy.
  • Add slices of your favorite cheese! Make it melt and toast the bread for a great salisbury steak grilled cheese melt. YUM.
  • Tomato is always a nice fresh balance.

  • Add garlic and butter. Cook for about 1 minute. 
    Stir in the flour, cooking and stirring to remove lumps. Add about 1/2 – 1 cup of beef stock, whisking until incorporated.
    Increase heat to High. Slowly pour in the remaining broth and whisk until well combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste (the saltiness and flavors will concentrate some when it reduces down).
  • Once gravy starts to boil, reduce heat to low.  Stirring often, simmer until the gravy starts to thicken, about 5-10 minutes.  Add salisbury steak burger patties back into the gravy and cook until the steak patties are cooked to your preferred doneness (usually about 5-10 minutes), stirring the gravy occasionally around the steaks. Taste for seasoning and add more salt & pepper, if desired.
