  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, onion, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning using your hands. Shape into 6 patties about 1 inch thick.
  2. Fry the patties in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned. Drain off grease, and remove patties to a platter; keep warm.
  3. Melt the butter in the same skillet, and add the mushrooms. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over, and mix in until blended. Stir in the milk and beef bouillon. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth and starting to thicken. Return the patties to the gravy and cook over low heat, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Excellent recipe; I followed other's suggestions and did the following: saute fresh mushrooms and onions in butter before browning meat, reduced milk to 1 1/2cp. milk, added 1 1/2 beef broth, and added a cn of cream of mushroom soup as the last step. This will definitely be on our table again!

The texture of the meat was not great! I was disappointed in this recipe. The gravy didn't have much flavor and my son and husband did not like it either. Won't be trying this one again. Disappointed.

When I first made this dish, my husband and I both found it to be much to salty. Next time, I omitted the canned mushrooms in their own juices and instead used fresh mushrooms. This eliminated the salty flavor. The patties were very flavorful, but I added some crumbled bacon bits and a little crushed garlic. I also prefer a gravy made with cornstarch over flour and found that to work great also.

We LOVE this recipe -- easy, cheap, and yummy! My only change is to saute sliced onions with the mushrooms. This one is firmly entrenched in our rotation!

SUPER GREAT! This was the first time I ever made salisbury steak. I did change the recipe a little, we like onion so added more, used only 1/2 the milk and salt, and as others have done I used a can of beef broth and a can of cream of mushroom soup, fresh mushrooms that I sauted in the butter to use for the gravy, and a tsp of worsh. sauce. This made the gravy nice and thick. YUMMY!!!

I added worcestershire sauce to both the patties and the gravy, I also used 2 cups of beef broth and 1 cup of milk. I also placed the patties in a casserole and smothered them in gravy, I then covered with foil and baked for about 30 minutes. The gravy needed additional thickening as I felt it was too runny for my family's taste so I added a bit of slurry before pouring the gravy over. It was good and with the minor adjustments I made it will remain in the line up, thanx for a good recipe the whole family likes!

Delicious! I did make a change though, not because I saw anything wrong with the recipe but because I am lazy! Instead of making a sauce with the butter, flour, milk, and mushrooms...I just used a can of cream of mushroom soup and milk. I added some flour to make it thicker. Still turned out yummy! And it had a good gravy consistency.

This was really good....everybody loved it INCLUDING my 3 picky children! I did, however, have to omit the mushrooms, but still delicious. I also left out the poultry seasoning, used seasoning salt, garlic pepper, and onion powder and the "steaks" were super flavorful. We liked the gravy over mashed potatoes. Thanks for a great recipe :)
