This Easy Salisbury Steak with Gravy is the ultimate guest-worthy comfort food. Imagine an ultra tender, somewhat sophisticated burger that's drenched in luscious gravy. Superbly flavorful yet easy to make!
Heat Oil: In a heavy large skillet, heat 2 TB olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and stir 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and stir 1 minute. Reserve half of this mixture for later.
Make Patties: Add the other half of the garlic/onion mixture to a large bowl with ground beef. Add breadcrumbs, beaten egg, mustard, ketchup, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper to the bowl. Stir to combine mixture well. Form beef mixture into 7 even sized patties, about 1/2" thick each.
Cook: In heavy large skillet, add another TB of oil and heat over medium high heat. Cook beef patties 3 minutes per side or until nicely browned on both sides and fully cooked through -- do this in 2 batches, adding olive oil as needed
Make Gravy: While patties are cooking, make the gravy: In a separate saucepan, add the butter over medium high heat. Add flour to melted butter and whisk until mixture is a thick roux. Add broth, mustard, Worcestershire, and sugar to the saucepan; constantly whisk until mixture is smooth. Bring to a boil and let sauce boil about 5 minutes or until thickened. Add reserved onion/garlic mixture from earlier, plus mushrooms, stirring to combine well. Add salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
Serve: Pour finished gravy over beef patties in original skillet and heat just to warm through. Serve immediately.
