Grilled Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

We were having a luncheon at work yesterday, so I wanted a light breakfast.  Plain Chobani yogurt, strawberries and bananas, with my homemade granola.  This is the loose stuff that’s left over from my granola clusters, which is perfect in a parfait.

It was a busy morning.  We had to make an errand before lunch, then pick up lunch, come back set it up.  It turned out great though – I am usually in charge of this stuff, so I am happy when it all works out to plan. Open-mouthed smile

I ended up having a mixture of Asian chicken salad, some chicken and asparagus pesto pasta, and then the Cobb salad looked really good.

Tiny problem with the Cobb salad – chock full of chopped red onion, so it was really hard to pick them out.  Michelle asked if Tony and I had tried caramelized onions because we might like those. Um, those are the worst onions of all!

I defrosted some of the ground sirloin I bought on discount last week.  I’ve made my Company Salisbury steak numerous times.  I thought of doing it on the grill!  I used less meat than before, and added more bread crumbs to keep them whole so they didn’t break apart on the grill when it came time to flip.

Grilled Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy


  • 8 ounces ground sirloin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish mustard (or favorite mustard)
  • 1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 2 slices hearty bread
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 package brown gravy mix
  • 3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup prepared mashed potatoes

Mix the meat, egg, panko, salt, pepper, mustard and Worchestershire sauce.  Mix until combined and form into two patties.  Heat grill to medium.  Cook for about 5 minutes a side.  Remove steaks and cover with foil.  Put the cheese on the bread and put it in your top grill rack and close it until the cheese melts, just a couple minutes.

On the stove I had my mushrooms sautéing.  I mixed the 1 cup water to the package of brown gravy mix, and added that the mushrooms, turned the heat up and cooked the gravy for one minute.   I had leftover mashed potatoes, so just heated those up and it was time to assemble.

Cheese bread on bottom, steak on top of that, pour with mushroom gravy sauce and add the mashed taters on the side – make sure they get some gravy too otherwise they’ll get jealous.  I garnished mine with some chopped parsley – Tony doesn’t care for that “green shit.”

This is a super easy weeknight dinner – literally 20 minutes from beginning to end.  I usually stock up on brown gravy packets when my store sells them 2/$1.  Only 25 calories per 1/4 cup!

And reason 3,027 I love Tony.  He was at a work related event yesterday and a company was showing how they do laser stuff.  My husband has tried to explain what all that stuff is, but it’s over my head.  Needless to say people were asking to have their names lasered on their pens, but not my hubby!

He tried to have them take off their logo, but obviously that defeats the purpose of marketing!  I love it though – and turns out blue is my favorite color!  Thanks Tony!

I haven’t worked out since last Wedneday – wth?!!  I need to rock it out at my lunch workout today.  Make it a great day!

  1. Hey! Snazzy! Your hubby is so thoughtful 😀 I love how he even tried to get them to skip the logo – ha!

    Also, if I’m ever hosting a party, I’m totally going to you for advice. That food looks so good!

  2. GET YOUR WORKOUT ON!!!! The pen is totally cute. I love lunches that are buffet style. I steal all the salad ;). How you feel about onions is how I feel about mushrooms 😉

  3. I always drool at your Salisbury steak pictures. It was a common meal in my house as a kid and one of my favorites! The work luncheon looked like it was a success-that pesto pasta sounds like a great dish. Good luck on your workout today. I plan on conquering the stairs at the local community college (there’s a tribute to local Olympians and part of the structure has about 20 stairs so I try for 20 sets). Have a great day!

  4. Wow–what a nice luncheon! I wish my workplace would provide better choices when they had luncheons. Sometimes it works out with items like you had, but sometimes it’s just some low quality delivery pizza. Yuck.

    You seriously crack me up. Caramelized are the worst of them all?!? How can that be? I just wrap my head around this concept. It’s just not right! 😉

  5. yum, red onions 😀

    The food from the luncheon and the grilled Salisbury steak look amaze-balls (wonder where I picked up that term! ha!) and the pen is awesome!

  6. That dinner looks too comforting! And how cute on the pen – too nice!

  7. haha nice on the pen!

  8. That steak looks delicious! I haven’t worked out either, I need to get back on it tonight. Happy Tuesday.

  9. I love caramelized onions and would harass you more about your illogical hatred of all things onion, except that I feel that way about fish…so you get a pass from me. 🙂

    Cool pen, bro.

  10. Sweet pen! And my boyfriend would die to have what you did for dinner!

    Funny, I don’t mind onions as much now that I am older – as long as they are pureed. Never raw! I hate, hate, hate mushrooms. So much that my throat locks up when I get one in my mouth.

    Love the logo pens. We get a ton of those as samples for hubby’s biz. Usually the pens are crap for writing, though.

  12. MMMMM…..that salisbury steak and mushrooms over cheese bread looks delicous!! Great pictures……..looks like pictures I would see on a menu at “Denny’s”….at least drooling over pictures of food does not put pounds on…hahahahaha!!! Kudos to a husband that thinks of his wife, nice pen!!!

  13. Weighting For 50

    Oh fun!!!! Yay for the Bizzy Kitchen pen! Tony? He’s a keeper….

  14. I always see you posting about Chobani yogurt and decided to try the plain greek one in smoothies…I love it! So glad I tried it. Your salisbury steak on the grill sounds yummy! We finally got the grill out last night for some steaks, so nice to grill again. Tomorrow is burgers on the grill…yay! Love the pen 🙂

  15. I have to confess that the only salisbury steak I’ve ever eaten has been the tv dinner variety. And I loved it, but that was a long time ago. though I don’t eat meat anymore I think it would taste great with turkey. And hopefully would satisfy the hubby. And I’m diggin’ that pen!

  16. Love the pen! And the salisbury steak looks positively yummy. And you can never go wrong with cheese on bread. 🙂

  17. Yum, the steak looks delicious. I would have to use a different mustard. I like horseradish less than you like onions. Love the pen, what a great hubby you have.

  18. The steak looks fantastic, actually everything in this post looks mouthwatering!

  19. Looking good. Nice pics of your food are now making me hungry. Serves me right for not eating before checking it out.

  20. Love the pen, Tony is always so thoughtful of you, love it.

    The lunch looks great and so does the steak. I really need to book a food trip to Bizzy’s kitchen, you’re such a great cook.
