Salisbury Steak Meatballs

Coated in a rich brown gravy with little bits of onion and then topped with fresh chopped parsley, these delicious Salisbury Steak Meatballs are the ultimate classic comfort food. It’s a super easy 2-step recipe that your whole family will love! For this recipe, I took the classic American Salisbury Steak and turned it into super tasty meatballs! Truth be told, I love making meatballs. In fact, I sort of consider myself a meatball expert. Being from Romania, whether we are talking about my all-time favorite Romanian Meatballs, Italian Meatballs, or Indonesian Meatballs, I enjoy them all!

So for these Salisbury Steak Meatballs, it was a no-brainer for me to turn hamburger steaks into little bite-size balls of deliciousness! Basically, it’s just a difference in how you form the ground meat. I did make a few changes to the meatball gravy like not adding mushrooms, but you can actually modify the gravy any way you like. That’s part of the beauty of cooking.

This recipe makes a great main dish when paired with traditional mashed potatoes and green beans. But is also a fantastic party appetizer or filling for a simple meatball sub!


½ pound lean ground beef
½ pound lean ground turkey
½ cup onions, minced

1 large egg, beaten
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp black pepper
