"I wanted to make Salisbury steak, but I wanted the steaks to be soft and tender and not chewy. This method worked liked a charm! I know you will love this recipe! It tastes so much better than the commonly used ground beef."

Step 1

Start to heat a large skillet on medium heat with canola oil.

Step 2

Use a large resealable bag and add flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Step 3

Add the steaks to the bag and shake well, making sure to coat each piece evenly.

Step 4

In the skillet, cook steaks in the oil until browned on each side. Transfer to a 3-5 qt. crock pot. Add the onion, worcestershire sauce and the beef broth. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until meat is tender. You can also cook on low for 8 hours. (For best results, do not lift the cover.)

Step 5

When your meat is tender, remove steaks and onions to a large platter. Pour leftover broth into a glass mug or measuring cup for the gravy.

Step 6

Heat a skillet and add the butter, when the butter has melted, add the flour and stir to combine. Let it cook for at least a minute to cook the flour. Add the leftover beef broth and water stirring constantly until combined, when it simmers, lower heat and continue simmering until it thickens. Once it thickens, add the beef and onions to the skillet and let it warm the meat back up.

Step 7

Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles or however you would love to eat this meal. Delicious!

Tips & Variations

  • Slow Cooker- However if you don't have one, you could simply fry up the steaks, add to a dutch oven with the beef broth onion and worcestershire sauce, and bake in your oven on 250 degrees for 3-4 hours or until tender.



This recipe didn't work out as well as I thought it would. The meal basically fell apart totally. The flavor was good though, served over bread with carrots. Just not like I envisioned it would be.

After seeing the photos for this recipe in the Food Photo Forum,I knew I had to make it. So on 4/11,I did. Since it was just myself and my SO,the recipe was cut down to 2 servings.I didn't bother with putting the ingredients for the steaks in a plastic bag,the flour and seasonings were placed into pie plate. Then the steaks were dredged into the seasoned flour and fried until lightly browned on both sides.To get more of an onion flavor infused in the meat,it was layered. Only 1 cup of broth was used,with just 1/2 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce. In my crockpot which is a 3 quart,it was done in about 4 hours.After the steaks were done,the gravy was made and the steaks were simmered on low for another hour. We both found the gravy to be very good and the meat tender. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
