You Will Need

For Steak Patties:

  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1/2 lbs ground pork
  • 3 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1/4 cup Texas Beef rub
  • 1/4 cup Sizzlin' Burger rub
  • 1 beef bouillon, crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup Pork Panko
  • 1 grated onion

For Homemade Gravy

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 grated onion
  • 5 oz fresh mushrooms - sliced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire
  • SPG rub, to taste  
  • 1 cup water

The Gravy

Let's get the gravy out of the way first. Grab a pan, and slowly heat up the butter over a medium heat. Then add the flour, and whisk until smooth. Next, start adding the beef broth, stirring as you go. Don't rush this or the gravy will turn out lumpy. 

Keep stirring, and pour in all of the wet ingredients first, then the dry ingredients. You want to keep stirring until it reaches your desired consistency - keep the water close, so you can add if it gets too thick. When ready, set aside.

The Steak Patties

Once that's done, you can go ahead and make the Salisbury patties. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl, and knead until fully combined. Then form into 6-8 patties. To make them look more steak-like, use the back of a knife to make lines in each patty.

The Cook

Time to get cooking! Fire up your smoker, and let it come up to 350ºF (175ºC). If you're adding smoke wood or pellets, cherry is a great choice. Now place the patties on the grate. You want to cook them halfway, essentially brown them, and incorporate some of that smokey flavor we all love.

When cooked about 1/2 way through, place the patties in a wide enough pan with the gravy. Ideally you want the meat to be fully submerged. Cook to an internal temperature of 160ºF (72ºC), then pull off the heat.

The Payoff

Your smoked Salisbury steaks are ready to serve! They go well over some mashed potatoes, but feel free to do what you like best. The recipe might seem daunting, but shouldn't take more than 1 hour once you have your ingredients ready!
