Salisbury Steak & Potato Skillet

An entire scratch-made meal made in one pan in just 30 minutes

This post is sponsored by College Inn®. The thoughts and opinions are all mine.

Salisbury Steak only ever meant two things to me: 1) that processed lump of meat swimming in glumpy gravy in the school cafeteria and 2) something that came in a TV dinner.

It was not something I grew up eating or cooking. Or maybe it was. I think for folks around here, ‘Salisbury Steak’ is a very close cousin to what we would simply call ‘Hamburger Steaks & Gravy’. One thing I have learned with this blog is that, depending where people are from, we call the same things by different names.

When I first started cooking for my family, I leaned on the internet a lot for recipes I didn’t have in my family recipe arsenal. One day I came across an article from Alton Brown (which of course I can’t find now) about Salisbury Steak. The article caught my eye because I remember thinking What even IS Salisbury Steak anyway?? According to Alton and a lot of other reading I did that day, traditional Salisbury Steak gravy has some sort of tomato element to it (this could be actual tomato wedges, a bit of tomato paste, a little ketchup, etc.) and not just the plain pan gravy I’d make with my regular ‘Hamburger Steaks & Gravy’. AH-HA! Now I knew the difference! It can also be made from cubed steak or other cuts of beef but that’s a whole other discussion for another day!

So, when I decided to make this recipe, I added in a bit of ketchup to the gravy. I also added a little Worcestershire too because that seems to be a common element in traditional Salisbury Steak gravy. And I LOVED the way it turned out! That little bit of acid really cuts through the richness of the dish and brightens everything up.
