Can You Freeze Salisbury Steaks?

Yes and it’s a great way to have dinner ready when you get home. Just make sure they are thoroughly cooled before you freeze them. Then freeze them in a freezer safe container. Before serving, take them out the night before and allow them to thaw in the fridge. Re-heat in a pan before serving again.

What Other Types of Meat ?

Traditionally salisbury steak is made with ground beef. But there’s so many other options for meat if you want to eat something other than beef.

  • Ground chicken or turkey are healthier options, especially if you’re using ground breast meat or white meat.

  • Fan of ground lamb meat? This option is equally delicious.
  • Using plant based beyond meat or impossible meat for a vegan Salisbury steak patty is wonderful. For the gravy, use vegan or vegetable stock and you’ve got a delicious plant based Salisbury steak.

For the steak:

  • 1 pound (454 g) ground beef
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) kosher salt
  • lots fresh ground black pepper , to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) cooking oil , for searing beef patties

For the Mushroom Gravy

  • 8 ounces (227 g) mushrooms , sliced
  • 1 medium onion , sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons (30 g) butter
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced or crushed
  • 1/4-1/2 cup (30-60 g) flour , depending on how thick you like your gravy
  • 3 cups  (720 ml) broth (beef, chicken or vegetable)
  • kosher salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste


  • In large bowl mix together all the steak ingredients (beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, mustard powder, salt, and black pepper). Shape into 4 oval patties.
  • Heat large pan over medium-high heat and then add oil. Brown both sides of patties (about 1 minute per side) and then remove from the pan.
  • Keep same pan and beef juices over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook until onions are golden and excess mushroom liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes.
  • Add butter and garlic to the mushrooms and onions. 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 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.
  • Serve the steaks topped with the mushroom sauce.  They are excellent over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes!
