Best Salisbury Steak


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp beef bouillon cube
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp dijon
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 8 oz crimini mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Additional chopped parsley for garnish
  • In a large bowl, combine the Steak Mixture ingredients just until uniform. Do not overmix. Shape into 6 patties and let rest for at least 10 minutes for breadcrumbs to absorb flavor.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the Sauce Mixture ingredients.
  • Add butter to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTÉ function.
  • When butter melts, brown the steaks on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Meat may not be cooked through. Do not crowd the pot--you will have to work in batches. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  • Add onions and mushrooms to the pot and Sauté until onions begin to soften, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add sauce mixture to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Layer the steaks back into to the pot on top of the vegetables.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  • Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 15 minutes.
  • When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  • Carefully remove the steaks from the pot to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil, reserving juices.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and cold water. Stir into the pot until thickened, returning to SAUTÉ mode as needed. Adjust seasonings.
  • Serve the steak topped with gravy over noodles, spaghetti squash or mashed potatoes.
