Oh the comfort of this meal just makes me smile! If you’re a fan, too you’ll love making Pressure Cooker Salisbury Steak. It’s a down home, honest to goodness tasty meal that’ll satisfy you and your crew in no time flat.
I’ve changed my original salisbury steak recipe to lighten up on the texture. Using all ground beef can make the meat seem a bit dense. Ground turkey gives the steaks a great texture and you won’t bargain on flavor. As an added bonus, you’re beloved comfort food has less calories.
I also love the flavor of ground lamb in just about any ground meat dish. Here, I’ve got one pound of ground turkey, a half pound of ground lamb and a half pound of ground beef.
This combo of meats plus some terrific seasonings all work together for a delicious end result and pressure cooker makes for a super moist bite.
For the seasoning mixture, you’ll need 1/3 cup of bread crumbs, an egg, 1/2 tsp thyme, 1 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp oregano and 1 tsp worchestershire sauce.
Combine well and form 8 patties.
Preheat your pressure cooker by selecting the saute button. Add a couple tablespoons of oil and brown each patty on both sides. Set them aside when all are browned.
Add some fresh onion slices to the pot and saute. This will help get all the delicious browned bits unstuck from the bottom of the pot.
Next, add in some freshly sliced baby portobello mushrooms and saute for a minute or so.
Finally, place the patties on top of the onions and mushrooms and pour in 2 cups of beef stock. Add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.
Throw in a couple garlic cloves and place the lid on your unit. Close to lock and turn the steam release valve to the closed position.
Press the manual button and adjust the time to 12 minutes.
Once the pressure cooker has done it’s thing and counted down to zero, carefully release the pressure. Remove the patties, onions and mushrooms and place them in a serving dish.
Mix up a tablespoon of cornstarch and two tablespoons of cold water to make a slurry. Press the saute button on the unit and wait until the mixture is bubbling. Whisk the cornstarch mixture in. If you find that you want your gravy thicker, use more cornstarch and water.
Taste for seasoning and add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Pour the gravy over the salisbury steaks and serve.
That’s down right delicious! For a great mashed potato recipe, check out this post —>perfect mashed potatoes, which is easily made using the pressure cooker as well.
