This spin on Salisbury steak is anything but old-fashioned. With help from the slow cooker, we transformed this comfort food with scratch-made meatballs and a savory onion gravy that perfectly pairs with mashed potatoes.

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- or 6-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix melted butter, tomato paste and salt in slow cooker. Add onions and mushrooms; toss to coat. Stir in broth.

    In large bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, milk, egg, grill seasoning and soy sauce. Shape into about 24 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs. Place meatballs in slow cooker on top of vegetable mixture.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 to 4 hours or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked (165°F); stir. In small bowl, beat cornstarch and cold water. Quickly stir into slow cooker; cover. Increase to High heat setting; cook 5 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Serve over mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with parsley.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Dampen hands slightly when shaping these tender meatballs to help prevent sticking.
  • tip 2
    Betty Crocker™ mashed potatoes really make these easy slow-cooker meatballs into a meal. We liked the creamy butter flavor with these meatballs, but the roasted garlic flavor would be great, too.
