Salisbury Steak Meatballs FAQs

Can I use mushrooms in the gravy?

Any type of mushroom will work in this recipe. I usually use white button mushrooms, but feel free to experiment with different varieties. Shitake, oyster, and portobello mushrooms would all be delicious in the gravy.

Do I have to use Worcestershire sauce?

No, but it does add a nice depth of flavor to the meatballs. If you don’t have any on hand, you can simply omit it from the recipe.

What if I don’t have beef broth?

Chicken or vegetable broth can be used in place of beef broth. I would not recommend using water, as it will make the gravy very bland.

I don’t have a pan that’s big enough to fit all of the meatballs. Can I cook them in batches?

Yes, you can cook the meatballs in batches if necessary. Just be sure to keep an eye on them so that they don’t overcook.

Can I freeze Salisbury steak meatballs?

Yes! These meatballs freeze quite well. Simply place them in a freezer-safe container and store them for up to three months. When you’re ready to enjoy, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat in a pan on the stove.

How long will Salisbury steak meatballs last in the fridge?

Cooked Salisbury steak meatballs will last in the fridge for up to four days. I recommend reheating them in a pan on the stove before enjoying them.

Tips for Making the BEST Meatballs from scratch

  • Don’t overmix: Overmixing will result in tough meatballs. To achieve the perfect consistency, mix the ingredients until they are just combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop: This is by far the easiest way to form perfectly round meatballs. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can use a spoon or your hands.

These Salisbury Steak Meatballs are a delicious and easy way to enjoy one of America’s favorite comfort foods. They’re perfect for a family dinner or game day party, and you can even prepare them ahead of time and freeze them. Give the recipe a try, and let us know how you like them!
