Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak – easy, kid-friendly meal! Ground beef patties with a delicious creamy gravy – all cooked in the slow cooker!
I have gotten into really bad dinner habits over the past 8 months.
With my husband gone there was no need to have dinner ready at a certain time so sometimes we’d have “dinner” at lunchtime and then eat cereal for dinner. Or sometimes I’d skip dinner altogether and everyone would just have PB&J.
I won’t lie, I skipped cooking a lot. A whole lot.
In an effort to get back into a routine, I actually made a meal plan and stuck to it last week. It made my week go a lot smoother and surprisingly, was a lot of fun.
How To Make Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak!
This Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak is so easy and only takes about 15 minutes to put together. So it’s perfect for prepping before work and letting it cook in the slow cooker all day long.
Start by mixing together ground beef, onion soup mix, breadcrumbs, and milk. That mixture gets divided into 8 pieces and shaped into patties. Brown them quickly on the stove (or in the slow cooker if it has a saute function – this is the multicooker I have and I love it!) and then place them in the slow cooker.
To make the sauce, you mix together a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup mix, a packet of au jus mix (find it with the gravy mixes and seasoning packets in the grocery store) and water. That gets poured over the salisbury steak patties. And then they cook 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
I like to serve them with mashed potatoes so that they can soak up all that delicious gravy. Rice would work wonderfully, too!
How Long Is Salisbury Steak Good For?
Salisbury steak will be fine in the fridge for up to 3 – 4 days. Make sure to cover it tightly so it stays fresh as long as possible.
To reheat, you can use a microwave or oven. If the gravy is too thick, a splash of chicken broth or water will help to loosen it up.
Can You Freeze Salisbury Steak?
You can definitely freeze salisbury steak. Use an airtight container (or a ziploc bag with all the air squeezed out – lay it flat until frozen and then you can stack or put sideways) and eat within 3 months.
I would defrost overnight in the refrigerator and then reheat in the microwave or oven.
