  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • 1/3 cup finely diced onion
  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

For the Gravy and Noodles

  • 1 1/2 cups onions chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

For the Salisbury Steak Meatballs

  • In a large bowl, thoroughly mix together ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, worchestershire, soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, onion, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes until combined well.
  • Next shape into medium sized meatballs and set aside.
  • Add butter and vegetable oil to a large pan over medium heat.
  • Once butter is completely melted, add meatballs and sear on all sides. Remove from pan and set aside.

For the Gravy

  • Add onions and mushrooms to pan drippings and saute for about 3-4 minutes. Make sure you are scraping the bottom drippings for additional flavor.
  • Next add garlic and cook for only 30 seconds making sure to stir.
  • Push onions, mushrooms and garlic to one side of pan and add butter to empty side. Allow to melt then quickly stir in flour and continue to stir beginning a roux. Allow it to darken until a deep delicious brown then whisk in beef stock and stir until smooth allowing all the ingredients to come together.
  • Next add Worchestershire sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder and salt and pepper and whisk to combine.  Remember, the saltiness and flavors will concentrate more as it reduces down.
  • Bring to a boil then lower temperature to medium low. Add meatballs back to gravy and allow to cook for 25-30 minutes. While cooking meatballs, make noodles.

For the Reames Frozen Egg Noodles

  • Bring 4 quarts of water to a rapid boil.
  • Add 2 teaspoons salt, if desired.
  • Add Reames noodles and return to a full rolling boil, stir to separate.
  • Cook noodles uncovered for 20 minutes or until desired tenderness, stir occasionally.
  • Once noodles are done, add noodles to meatballs and gravy once gravy has thickened. Stir together to coat noodles with gravy.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve.


Traditional salisbury steak is made with ground beef but here I use ground turkey. Feel free to use whichever one you prefer!
