A great revival in cuisine is taking place! Salisbury steak was a comfort food staple in the 50’s and is once again being enjoyed for its low-carb, high-protein diet that will have you “smacking your chops” in delight.
What makes this Salisbury steak so incredible is not only the meat itself, but the delicious gravy that melts into the meat with a robust melding of flavors.
While the traditional Salisbury steak could be found in a frozen TV dinner, this homemade recipe is a high-quality, fresh and tasty alternative. Salisbury steak was invented by a physician during the American Civil War for its low in carbohydrates and high in protein. Dr. Salisbury believed this food is so healthful, it should be consumed for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Many people may think this recipe is a steak, but it’s actually more like a small meatloaf with an identifiable shape and specific ingredients. Good quality ground beef is preferred for better flavor but substituting some ground pork improves the texture.
The meat is measured into equal sized portions and pressed into to three-quarter-inch thick oblong patties. Pressing a dimple into the patty helps to keep it flat while cooking, preventing the meat mixture from puffing up.
This wholesome and hearty meal will satisfy even the most discriminating palate, and is super easy to prepare.
And yes, you can serve this to company. Check out our ’60s Sitcom TV Dinner Party… Gr8 Fun!
