The Hirshon Salisbury Steak

  • Total Time: 0 hours


Units Scale
  • 6 ounces minced onion
  • 1 ounce minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 ounces unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 ounces chopped flat-leaf parsley + extra for garnishing
  • Kosher salt and lots of freshly cracked black pepper, both to taste
  • 1 ounce chopped fresh marjoram
  • 12 ounces cooked and diced button mushrooms
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 2 ounces flour
  • 15 ounces beef stock, preferably homemade or low-salt
  • 3/4 pound pound sliced button mushrooms
  • 1/4 pound dried Porcini mushrooms, soaked in 8 ounces hot beef stock for 1 hour, cut into pieces and stock reserved, minus any grit
  • 1 ounce good-quality brandy, flamed (optional but recommended)
  • 1 teaspoon Maggi seasoning or to taste (optional but recommended)
  • Kitchen Browning sauce to taste (optional but recommended)
  • 2 Maui (or Vidalia or Walla-Wallas) or mild onions, sliced 1/2-inch thick, mixed with 1 tablespoon of oil in a bowl


  1. Sauté onions and garlic in 1 tablespoon butter until translucent and set aside to cool. Mix beef with cooled onion mixture, eggs, bread crumbs, parsley, marjoram, salt, pepper and button mushrooms.
  2. Form into 4-ounce patties and sauté in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter until golden brown on both sides and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan melt 2 ounces of butter and add flour. Cook over low heat for 1 minute until a ‘wet sand’ consistency is reached.
  4. Begin to add the stock ⅓ at a time, whisking and bringing to a simmer each time making sure there are no lumps. Add porcini mushrooms plus their soaking liquid and optional ingredients (if using) and simmer for ½ hour to reduce.
  5. Place patties in a roasting pan and pour gravy over them. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes.
  6. While the patties are cooking: in a very hot pan, add 1 tablespoon of oil. Let it heat a few seconds. Add the sliced Maui onions to the skillet. Sear for one minute before you stir them. Then every 90 seconds or so, stir them, scraping the bottom of the skillet using the spatula. Sauté them for a total of five or six minutes. They should be soft and have a few charred spots. Set aside.
  7. Garnish with the grilled Maui onions and additional chopped parsley and serve with mashed potatoes or buttered noodles.
