Week 15: Salisbury Meatballs


I found THIS recipe online two years ago and at that time it wasn’t in my comfort zone within the kitchen. Two years ago I was still learning my way around the kitchen and starting to really enjoy trying new recipes so I thought I’d give it a shot and it was SO YUMMY! 

Salisbury Steak Meatballs (which I affectionately call Salisbury Meatballs after my Alma Mater) have become a repeat offender in my kitchen and every time I’m reminded of how good they are. The recipe on Jo’s website has directions to make your own mashed potatoes but I just buy the Bob Evans microwavable ones and call it a day. If you’re feeling up to it I encourage you to make them as well! 


For Meatballs
  • 1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil for frying
For Gravy


  1. Add all the meatball ingredients (excluding the olive oil) to a large bowl and mix well, use your hands. Shape into 1 inch meatballs. You should get about 40 meatballs.
  2. Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium to high heat. Add meatballs and cook. If you’re using a large skillet all meatballs should fit in one batch otherwise, you might have to fry them in a couple batches. Cook the meatballs on all sides, add more oil if needed. Remove meatballs from skillet and set aside.
  3. To the same skillet add butter and melt. Add onion and cook until onion is soft and translucent. In a bowl add the cornstarch and beef broth and whisk. Add broth and remaining gravy ingredients to skillet, and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, sauce should thicken. If the sauce is too thick add a bit more beef broth. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.
  4. When the gravy is done add the meatballs back to the skillet and toss them around so they’re covered in the gravy. Garnish with parsley.
  5. Plate the mashed potatoes and place a heaping spoonful of gravy and meatballs on top of the mashed potatoes.
  6. Enjoy!
