Salisbury Steak with Gravy {Slow Cooker Recipe} | @JudyHoch

Welcome to another day of Five-Star Slow Cooker Recipes, a ten-day series featuring slow cooker recipes that are simple enough for weeknight meals but delicious enough to serve company!

If the only salisbury steaks you’ve ever had are the boxed version in the freezer case, you’re in for a real treat with these made-from-scratch Salisbury Steaks with Gravy. Served with mashed potatoes, noodles, or rice, these beefy patties covered with rich gravy are one of my family’s favorite meals.

  1. This looks so good! Thanks for linking up with “Try a New Recipe Tuesday.” I hope you will be able to join us again this week. :-)

  2. how many patties does this recipe make?

    • Jennifer, the number of patties totally depends on how big you make them. If you make them about the size of a normal burger, you should get 10 or so. I adjust the size of the patties to get the number that I need. 😉

  3. Kim Reese says:

    What size are your 3 packets of brown gravy mix? I have 2 different brands on hand and one packet is .87 oz yielding 1 cup and the others are 1.61 oz yielding 2 cups. Thanks!

    • Hi Kim, I use the smaller .87 oz. packets that yield one cup. I think I need to update the recipe with that info–I didn’t realize there were two different sizes! Hope you enjoy!
