I got this recipe from and it is delicious! I've always wanted to try Salisbury Steak cooked in a slow cooker and finally found it and wanted to share it with others. You won't be dissapointed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 12 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 14 cup milk
  • 14 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet au jus mix
  • 34 cup water


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet.
  4. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, au jus mix and water. Pour over the meat.
  6. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours until ground beef is well done.

Wonderful recipe. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken. I also added in a can of sliced mushrooms and half of an onion, sliced thinly, at the beginning of cooking. The steaks were very tender, the gravy was absolutely delicious. I didn't think it too salty at all. This recipe will become part of my repertoire. Thanks for sharing.

This was a very good dinner. I followed the ingredients for the patties, except that I didn't flour or fry them. I also followed the suggestion of 556271 and added some cooking wine and Worcestershire sauce (along with garlic) to the gravy. I couldn't find au jus mix, so I just used the canned stuff. The biggest difference is that I completely forgot to put this in the crock pot, so instead of panicking, I formed the patties, put them in a glass baking dish, poured the gravy over top and baked at 350 for 40 minutes. They were awesome! I even used ground turkey instead of beef and the whole family inhaled them. I think the only thing that I will change next time is that I will try to find some low-sodium soup to cut the saltiness a bit. Still delish! Thanks for posting!

Such a wonderful comfort food. My family devoured this dish. I followed the directions as above and didn't find it salty at all. I'm very picky about too much salt, too!
