Salisbury Steak: 30-Minute Meal
When is a hamburger not a hamburger? When it’s a Salisbury steak, a 19th-century invention named for the doc, J.H. Salisbury, who was big on high-protein diets. Classic Salisbury steak combines ground beef with onions, bread crumbs, eggs, and various spices and herbs. It’s formed into a steak shape (not a patty), is traditionally broiled, not fried, as a burger is, and it can be served with a brown gravy or other meaty sauce.
Salisbury steak is distinctly old-school, but it remains a delicious alternative to plain old burgers. Especially when you give that old-school recipe a distinctly new-school twist. And these “superburgers” take just about a half-hour to make.
In this Asian Salisbury Steak recipe, all the basics are there, but when hoisin sauce and sherry are added, along with chopped red peppers and scallions, it becomes an irresistible nod to the East. These steaks are served on a bed of sautéd watercress, which makes them ultrahealthy.
Pasta with Baby Salisbury Steaks takes the classic broiled beef, makes each one a mini version, and combines it with pasta, tomatoes, and zucchini for a wonderfully complete one-dish dinner.
