Salisbury Steak Meatballs Ingredients

Salisbury Steak Meatballs raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

For the Meatballs

  • 1½ pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ cup plain panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup finely diced sweet yellow onion 
  • 1 large egg, room temperature and beaten
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup 
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic 
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder 
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (for frying the meatballs)

For the Mushroom Gravy

  • 1¾ cups water
  • 2 (0.87-ounce) packets of brown gravy mix
  • 1 (4-ounce) can of mushroom pieces and stems, drained
  • 1 teaspoon of Kitchen Bouquet seasoning sauce (optional)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MUSTARD: You can substitute stone-ground mustard for the Dijon or plain prepared mustard in the meat mixture. Whichever you have on hand will work for these Salisbury meatballs.

SPICE: If you want a rich brown color to your gravy, you can add 1 teaspoon of Kitchen Bouquet to darken it. While optional, it adds a little something extra to your gravy if you have it on hand.

How to Make This Salisbury Steak Meatballs Recipe

STEP ONE: Add the ground beef to a large mixing bowl.

STEP TWO: Add breadcrumbs, diced onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, onion powder, kosher salt, and cracked black pepper. Mix with either a large spoon or use your hands to mix the ingredients until thoroughly combined.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

If you choose to mix the meat with your bare hands, I highly recommend using disposable gloves. That way, you reduce the risk of cross-contamination, and it’s a lot less messy.

STEP THREE: Measure out 1½ tablespoon scoops of the meatball mixture. Form into round balls.

PRO TIP:

I do highly recommend having a dedicated scoop for meatballs. There is always a risk of cross-contamination. Be sure to clearly mark the scoop for anyone to recognize.

STEP FOUR: Add the extra virgin olive oil to a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. 

PRO TIP:

If you use a 10-inch skillet, you will need to cook the meatballs in batches.

STEP FIVE: Once the skillet is heated, add the meatballs to the skillet. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, and turn to ensure even browning. Once the meatballs are completely cooked, remove them from the heat and prepare the gravy according to the package directions.

STEP SIX: Once the gravy has been made, stir in the drained mushrooms.

If the mushroom pieces are too large, you can cut them in half into smaller pieces.
