Smothered Salisbury Steak “Tips”

1.5 pounds ground beef

Salt, pepper and garlic powder

1 large onion, halved and sliced

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 packet brown gravy mix

1 1/3 cups cold water


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cut ground beef into large chunks and season liberally on all sides with salt, pepper and garlic. Add seasoned meat to hot skillet and let sear for several minutes before turning. Add onion slices around the perimeter of the skillet and season with salt and pepper.


Once the meat has seared on one side, gently flip so that it can sear on the other sides as well. If you try to mess with the meat too much it will crumble. By letting it sear on the top, bottom and whichever other sides you can manage, it will keep its shape.


Gently stir and turn onions as you sear the meat. Once meat is seared on all (or most) sides, push the meat and onions to one side of the pan. Tilt pan slightly so that the pan drippings come to the empty side of the pan. Whisk flour into pan drippings and cook for 1-2 minutes or until slightly browned. Set skillet back down flat and reduce heat to low.


Add brown gravy packet to a small bowl then whisk in water. Slowly pour gravy mixture into skillet and stir to incorporate. Cover and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes or until meat is cooked through.


Serve over mashed potatoes or rice.
