Guest Blogger and Crock Pot Salisbury Steak!
Hello Everyone! My name is Tina, and I am so excited to be a Guest Blogger at Southern Plate. First off I want to say thank you to Christy for extending me this wonderful invitation and a spot on her wonderful site for the day.
I am a Stay at Home Mother with three of the cutest kids and a loving husband that makes all that possible. I have loved Cooking and Baking for as long as I can remember. My favorite thing to do is cook for my family and friends. There is no better feeling then sharing all your wonderful dishes.
I started Mommy’s Kitchen just a couple months back. I wanted a place to share all my favorite recipes I have collected over the years. And to let everyone know that your children are never too young to start cooking. All you have to do is give them a chance. I’d like to share one of my favorite recipes with you today, Salisbury steak Crockpot Style. This dish is so easy to prepare and is so versatile, it can be served with Mashed Potato’s, Rice or Noodles what ever tickles you’re fancy.
Its a whopping 102 degrees here in Texas, but what else is new. I am preparing this recipe in my crock pot so I don’t have to turn on the oven. I am not sure about you but my crock pot is my best friend in the summer. It really helps so you don’t have to heat up the house. This recipe doesn’t take all day to cook like a lot of the traditional crock pot meals. You will be preparing half of this recipe on the stove top and then let the crock pot do the rest. When I hear Salisbury Steak my first thought is always of those frozen meals in the store that your get in those little foil trays. Goodness, I just cant eat those they are usually packed with so much sodium and they are so pricey on top of that. This dish is so simple to prepare at home and its not expensive at all and it’s made with ingredients that you usually have on hand.
I was really stumped on a which bread i was going to serve with my meal. I wanted it to be something simple. I know i said i wouldn’t turn on the oven. I couldn’t help it though, I remembered a recipe at the
Southern Plate for a Southern Hoe Cake
. I have been trying to find a reason to make one. Well today is the day. I mean it wont hurt to turn the oven on just for bit!!! I am so glad I made Christy’s recipe it was the perfect addition to my meal. My husbands exact words when he took a bite of Christy’s recipe was ” that’s pretty damn good” LOL, I could not of said it any better. So thanks Christy for another keeper. Now go ahead and get that Crock Pot out and don’t buy another one of those frozen meals again. Give this recipe a try It’s really good Everyone I have shared this recipe with has thanked me.
These are the ingredients you will need.
Mix the first 5 ingredients together. I used cracker crumbs but bread crumbs are fine to.
shape into ovals about ¾ inches thick and place in skillet with just a little bit of oil.
Cook patties in a skillet turning once until brown.
Add onion mushroom and beef broth heat to boiling. Reduce heat cover and simmer for 10 minutes. I did not add mushrooms this time because my husband asked if i could leave them out the next time I made this dish
Remove patties to a casserole dish or plate and keep warm.
Mix gravy packet according to packet directions. (1 cup water added to gravy mix)
Heat mixture until boiling. Mix water and cornstarch together to make a paste.
Add to boiling mixture.
Use a wire whisk and whisk until gravy begins to thicken. Make sure to watch your pan, because the cornstarch will thicken rather quickly you dont want lumps of cornstarch. My kiddos had a tug of war with my whisk and it broke so i am usuing a large fork.
add the prepared gravy mixture. The original recipe i got years and years ago did not call for any extra gravy. I found after the first time i prepared the recipe the it just wasn’t hearty enough for me so i add the additional gravy mix and the flavor is perfect.
Using the wire whisk again whisk the gravy until it is smooth and thickened. It really comes off with a hearty brown color by adding the additional gravy.
add the Salisbury steak patties to your crock pot and pour the gravy over the patties.
Cover and cook on low for 3 hours.
There you go. This recipe is so good I have been making my Salisbury Steak this way for years.
I served mine with Mashed Potatoes, Green beans & Corn and a piece of a hoe cake.
Here is the picture of the Hoe Cake I made. Slap on some butter and go for it. The recipe for Christy’s hoe cake can be found here.

Reduce heat cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove patties to a casserole dish and keep warm. Heat mixture until boiling. Mix water and cornstarch together to make a paste. Add to boiling mixture with a wire whisk and whisk until gravy begins to thicken. I don’t think the gravy is hearty enough for me so I also add 1 packet of brown or mushroom gravy prepared according to package directions and add to the beef broth gravy.
