Homemade Salisbury steak for two is the perfect weeknight dinner for two. It's super easy, and there's just one pan to clean!
I love the comforting dish of homemade Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes. I crave it every time the weather gets a bit chilly and snow flurries are predicted. There is no shortage of Salisbury steak recipes out there, but I promise none of them are as good as your Mom’s. And furthermore, my version is a bit different.
I wanted an easy version of Salisbury steak that I could mix up in less than 15 minutes using as few dishes as possible. In my dream world, dinner uses only one skillet or sheet pan and one bowl. Plus, when I fry Salisbury steaks, the grease splatters and I would rather wash extra dishes than clean a stovetop. You too?
I sacrificed the typical creamy mashed potatoes that usually accompany Salisbury steak for roasted baby red potatoes, but do not be fooled: these potatoes are just as decadent. The juices that drip from the meat while it cooks baste the potatoes. Heavenly spuds, if you ask me.
This meal came together in 10 minutes for me. First, I thinly sliced the onions after cutting them from root to tip so I ended up with half-moon shapes. Place the onions on the bottom of the sheet pan. Next, slice baby red potatoes that are no bigger than a golf ball. Add those on top of the onions. Drizzle the veggies with oil, salt and pepper and toss. Finally, use a bowl to mix up the meat mixture. I use my hands for even, fast mixing. (The longer you mix meat, the tougher it becomes, so mix quickly!). Set the Salisbury steaks on top of the veggies and roast for 30 minutes.
There you have it! Dinner, done, in just minutes. This recipe easily doubles if you're trying to feed more than two. If you're looking for extra sides to serve, try roasted broccoli or some homemade biscuits.
