6 oz sliced mushrooms

1/2 onion, sliced

1 1/2 cups beef broth (low sodium)

1 oz package brown gravy mix (dry)

2 tbsp ketchup

1 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp fresh parsley

2 tbsp cornstarch

4 tbsp water

Beef Patties:

1 1/2 lb lean ground beef

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup minced onion

1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs

3 tbsp milk

1 clove garlic

Salt and pepper to taste


Begin by placing the sliced mushrooms and onions into your slow cooker.

Combine ground beef, an egg yolk, minced onion, Panko bread crumbs, milk, garlic, salt and pepper. Shape this mixture into 6 patties.

Heat a skillet, over medium-high heat and brown the patties for approximately 3 minutes on each side.

Arrange the patties on top of the mushrooms and onions in the slow cooker. In a bowl mix together beef broth, brown gravy mix, ketchup, Dijon mustard and fresh parsley. Pour this mixture over the patties.

Set your cooker to low heat and let it work its magic for 5 hours. This will allow all those wonderful flavors to blend together perfectly.

Once done cooking remove the patties from the slow cooker. Set them aside. Increase the heat setting to high on your slow cooker. In a bowl combine water with cornstarch and stir it into the gravy that is in your slow cooker. Allow it to cook for a few minutes until it thickens up nicely.

Place back your beef patties, into that thickened gravy so they can be coated evenly. Serve this Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak over mashed potatoes or rice for a satisfying meal experience. Enjoy every bite!


To create a Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak that is gluten-free you just need to make a swap. Instead of using Panko bread crumbs, for the beef patties choose certified gluten-free Panko crumbs or breadcrumbs made from gluten-free grains like rice or corn. Also make sure that the brown gravy mix you use is labeled as gluten-free because some commercial mixes might have thickeners that contain gluten. These straightforward substitutions guarantee that everyone, at the table can relish this dish without any uneasiness.
