You know tonight I noticed when cooking I still do a good luck trick, that my grandmother taught me, that we always did when cooking. The extra salt you throw it over your shoulder into the sink. I never used measuring spoons until I started this blog; just in order to make sure I could give the exact amounts of what was needed for each recipe. Some days I just love to cook but then their is some days that dinner needs to be delicious but easy to make. Especially when work becomes hectic. This instant pot salisbury steak is perfect because it comes together quickly.
It also cooks quickly in your pressure cooker or instant pot. These are virtually the same thing just some have more settings then others. My pressure cooker has the saute button which comes in really handy when needing to make a gravy but still wanting to use just one pot.
When I make this instant pot salisbury steak I like to pull the steaks out then set the pressure cooker to saute and make the gravy. This is of course after cooking the steaks with mushroom, onions, and broth. I love that you thicken the gravy in the end so you can really use less cornstarch or more depending on how thick you like to have your gravy.
I created a video because I thought it might help make this a little easier to see visually what I am doing when I make this dish.
