How to make French Onion Salisbury Steak

Step 1: In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the sliced onions with a tbsp Worcestershire sauce, and ¼ cup of the beef broth to the skillet. Cook the onions for about 6 to 7 minutes, stirring often until soft and golden.

Step 2: While the onions are cooking, gently mix the ground beef, egg, 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until just combined. Shape the beef mixture into 5 even balls. Flatten each into patties, then set them aside on a cutting board or plate.

Step 3: Scoot the softened onions to the side of the skillet. Now, add the patties to the pan and fry them for about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer the patties to a plate when done.

Step 4: Stir the onions, sprinkle them with flour, and cook for about a minute, stirring perpetually. Gradually pour in the rest of the broth, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to release any browned bits.

Step 5: Adjust the heat to medium-low, then return the patties to the pan. Evenly top each patty with cheese. Put the lid on and simmer for about 6 to 8 minutes until the cheese has melted, the gravy has thickened, and the meat is completely cooked.


For the best flavour, I suggest using ground beef with 15 to 20 per cent fat content.

For any leftovers, place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

To have control over the sodium, I suggest using a low sodium stock/broth. Also, you can substitute panko breadcrumbs with regular or Italian breadcrumbs. If desired, use mozzarella, white cheddar, or sliced gouda instead of provolone.
