This was SO good, my favorite salisbury steak recipe by far. I put 1/2 a package dried onion soup in with the burger, and the rest in with the sauce. After browing the patties, I removed them then fried 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms in the drippings plus a bit of butter. (My ground beef was very lean.) I added the rest of the ingredients, simmered until thick, then returned the patties to the pan. I then topped each patty with a slice of colby cheese which finished it perfectly! I served on buttered noodles, but I think potatoes would go better with the gravy. All 3 of my kids enjoyed it too.

My husband said that if this was/were on a menu in a restaurant he would order it every time! I did use 1 package of onion soup mix and I did add a jar of sliced mushrooms to the gravy. Served with noodles, steamed broccoli, and pickled baby beets. Thank you for a very good recipe. It is a "keeper".

Easy recipe for simple comfort food. I used onion soup mix in the ground beef and probably more than 1 cup of water in my gravy. The meal was tasty, and we chose to ladle our gravy over buttered egg noodles. Roasted green beans were a nice side.

Pure comfort food! I had some pre-made hamburger patties that I wanted to use. So instead of making the patties using this recipe, I substituted the pre-made ones instead. I added a cup of water but it was quite salty. Maybe next time I'll add a can of water instead. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

On 6/29/10, I made exactly what Michelles3boys's was making for her dinner( Well, I actually stole her idea :) ).I took her suggestion and added an egg ,then added 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. I also used the onion soup mix.Other than those changes, the recipe was made as written. And if you are searching for " comfort food " that is quick,easy, and tastes good then your search is over. This will be made more times than you can imagine. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

I really enjoyed this hamburger steak. The only thing different I did was use onion powder instead of onions (my kids don't like onions). I made rice as a side, and the gravy was sooo good poured over it. This recipe has a permanent place in my cookbook. *Update* The last time I made this I mixed 1 egg and 1/2 cup of crushed saltine crackers with the ground beef. It made the hamburger steak very tender. I also used cream of chicken soup (because that's what I had on hand), and it was wonderful! You might want to use the lower sodium soup, because the gravy is pretty salty. Thanks again for your great recipe!

My husband and I loved this! It was such comfort food. I didn't have the pack of gravy mix, so I used 2 beef boullion cubes and a half can of water ( I think you need the water anyway) and it was delicious. I also put the sliced onions in the gravy instead of the burger. Yummy!

Very easy and good! I used almost 2 lbs of ground beef to make extra hamburgers. I also used the healthy selects cream of mushroom soup. Next time I will add a small can of mushrooms. Thanks!

Very tasty along with easy to prepare ... my two favorites. I added sliced mushrooms to the gravy mixture as well increased the water for more gravy - filled the soup can, only because I had 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef oh and we like lots of gravy too :) Thx 4 sharing =)
