Super Easy Recipe for Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

If you tried our Instant Pot Salisbury Steak and were blown away, but want to make it in the morning instead this is a great option. Maybe you saw that but don’t have that machine, BUT slow cooking is your thing, I get it y’all.

I do have several small kitchen appliances but somehow all things come back to good ol’ slow cooker recipes, especially during the Winter snowy days. Since making this I have tweaked it a few different ways as well. You can make the same meat mixture but into smaller balls to create Crockpot Meatballs and Gravy as an appetizer, or just more “fun dinner” idea.

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉

How do I Make Salisbury Steak Recipe with Hamburger Patties?

It is easy! You can certainly use store bought, already formed and pop those in. When I make homemade patties I typically will mix up the meat and onion soup mix as we did below, or make meatloaf without breadcrumbs and form into a patty, about 4 per pound. 1.5 pounds would make closer to 6 but typically I won’t add more than that as you want them to sit in one layer ideally when cooking.

Can you Make Crockpot Salisbury Steak with Cream of Mushroom Soup?

Yes! that makes this dish so easy and creamy. You could certainly make the condensed soup from scratch first but canned from Campbells is used here.

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • Packet of onion soup mix
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • All purpose flour
  • Can of cream of mushroom soup, 10.5 oz.
  • 1/2 c milk or beef broth could be used
  • 1 packet au jus mix

This is what you’ll need to make both the meat mixture and the Brown Onion Gravy. You could add slices of diced onion to add to the overall texture but the dry mix will get tender with the milk and soften when warmed. Another thing to add texture would be to include 1 package of sliced mushrooms.

If you didn’t want them to soften down all the way just add halfway thru the cooking process. Typically I will make this at lunch time and it’s ready for dinner. If you’re not home you can use your timer to have it start on low about noon. In the case you can’t do either and 8 hours is needed that is okay, you just may have broken down patties that fall apart a bit more than you may want.

Crockpot Salisbury Steak Recipe with Hamburger Patties

When I am making a batch of this Old Fashioned Salisbury Steak Recipe and serve it over mashed potatoes I really don’t care whether it falls apart or not quite frankly but you may. If you made the mixture into balls and browned it wouldn’t take as long either, closer to 3-4 hours if you go that direction.

Hamburger Patty Salisbury Steak Ingredients

  • Add oil to a large 10″ skillet and heat over medium high heat. 
  • Add ground beef and onion soup mix to a bowl and mix well.
  • Shape into 4 patties and dredge each side into flour, lightly coating each patty.
  • Once oil in skillet is hot, dry patties for about 2 minutes each side until browned on the outside. Remove from heat. 
  • Add cream of mushroom soup, milk and au jus dry gravy mix to a 8 qt. sized slow cooker (what I have) and mix well.
  • Add ground beef patties and spoon mushroom soup mixture over the top so they are coated. 
  • Cover and heat on low for 4-6 hours.

When cooking is complete, serve steak an sauce over a bed of mashed potatoes or egg noodles topped with brown gravy on top with chopped fresh parsley.

Can you Make Crockpot Salisbury Steak with Cube Steak?

Certainly you could! Any meat would work too but beef is the most typical. You could use other cuts, steak cubed is usually the next choice. Slow Cooker Cube Steak uses steaks that have been pounded out thin with a meat mallet. That allows the flavor of the sauce to permeate and become super duper tender.

Can You Make Salisbury Steak with Frozen Ground Beef?

We do have tips on how to thaw Frozen Ground Beef if that is all you have on hand. Then proceed as directed below. Keep in mind that a bit more fat will keep them together a bit better. I wouldn’t choose lower than 80/20 or you’ll just end up with chopped beef, still wonderful but looser.

I don’t know if this is a great way of How to Cook Frozen Burgers but I imagine if they were separated from one another you could use them.

What’s the name of a cooked dish similar to Salisbury steak but with a red sauce?

Swiss steak is what you are thinking of, also delicious. This recipe is typically made from a tenderized piece of beef, such as round steak or chuck steak. It is usually coated in flour, browned, and then slow-cooked in a tomato-based sauce.

Is Salisbury steak and cube steak the same thing?

No, they aren’t. Salisbury steak is a dish made from ground beef that is shaped into a patty, similar to a hamburger. Cube steak is a cut of beef, usually top round or top sirloin, that has been tenderized by pounding with a meat mallet and used to make chicken fried steak.
