Simple comfort food that is easy to make. The patties can be prepared and frozen, making this an easy way to double or triple the recipe and stock your freezer for quick meals.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cups brown gravy

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix the beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg, and water; shape into 4 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil and add patties. Cook 5 minutes and turn over. Cook 5 more minutes until browned on both sides. Drain off any fat.
  • Add gravy and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 10 minutes or until patties are cooked to desired doneness.

Notes

This recipe is a Campbell’s original and is a better alternative to frozen Salisbury steak options. The patties freeze well either raw or cooked. To freeze, scale the recipe as preferred, then freeze the patties individually on a cookie sheet for several hours. Once frozen, combine in a freezer container and label with date and the appropriate cooking instructions for raw or frozen.
This recipe can be dressed up with sautéed onions and/or mushrooms—just sauté in butter and add to the pan with the brown gravy.
