Hamburger steaks — or Salisbury steaks — always make a satisfying family dinner. This version is especially easy because the gravy is made with condensed cream of mushroom soup. Feel free to add some gravy browning sauce to the soup.

Serve this dish with mashed potatoes and a side vegetable or salad.​

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (85 to 90 percent)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 cans (10 1/2 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 teaspoon gravy browning sauce (such as Gravy Master or Kitchen Bouquet)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, celery, green pepper, onion, garlic salt, ground pepper, eggs, and Worcestershire sauce. Form into patties (about 4 to 6 ounces each) and then dust them with flour.
  3. Arrange the hamburger steaks in a 9-by-13-by-2-inch baking pan.
  4. Pour the condensed soup in a saucepan and add browning sauce, if desired. Mix well and heat until it begins to simmer.
  1. Pour mushroom soup over the steaks. Bake about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the beef is thoroughly cooked.

According to the USDA, the minimum safe temperature for ground beef is 160 F (ground poultry is 165 F).

Tips and Variations

  • Mushroom Gravy: In a medium saucepan, saute 4 to 6 ounces of sliced mushrooms about 2 tablespoons of butter until golden brown. Add the cream of mushroom soup and gravy browning sauce, if using. Heat and serve over the baked hamburger steaks.
