Tips for making delicious crockpot Salisbury steak

  • Use 80/20 ground beef for moist, flavorful patties. The higher fat content keeps the patties from drying out.
  • Make sure to brown the patties first before putting them in the slow cooker. Browning helps them hold their shape better.
  • Sauté the onions first before adding to the slow cooker for enhanced flavor.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce and ketchup to the gravy mixture – the tangy flavors really make the gravy pop.
  • Use Lipton onion soup mix for an extra savory flavor boost. The seasoning blend adds lots of rich, oniony flavor.
