Looking for a little old-fashioned comfort food? Why not give this Salisbury Steak recipe a try? It’s easy, delicious and ready in less than 30 minutes!

I’ve never been a huge fan of Salisbury Steak. While I love ground beef, in general, I don’t really like it dripping in gravy. But, the husband does and after 19 years together, I finally made it for him.

And I ate it.

I didn’t love it, but it wasn’t quite as revolting as I remember it being as a kid. But, the husband loved it and has actually requested it a couple more times since I first made it. It seems to have become a new favorite for him.

So, I thought you might want to try my Salisbury steak recipe, too. It’s really easy and it only takes a few minutes to make using simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.

The next time you’re looking for a little comfort food that is cheap, hearty and easy to throw together, try this Salisbury Steak recipe, it might become your hubby’s new favorite!

And maybe…just maybe, you’ll like it, too.
