Dr. Salisbury's Steak

This classic of American culinary arts was

 invented by an American physician, Dr. James

 Salisbury (1823–1905). He believed that beef was

 excellent defense against many different physical

 problems. He suggested that his “salisbury steak”

 should be eaten three times a day, with lots of

 water to cleanse the digestive system. Introduced

 in 1888, his creation was either deep fat fired or

 boiled! It had nothing to do with Salisbury

 England as most people believe. I believe this

 method produces a much better tasting meal than

 a boiled burger would provide.


The term "Salisbury steak" has been in use in the

 United States since before the turn of the century.

 It is traditionally served with gravy and mashed

 potatoes or noodles. Grillsteaks are a similar

 product sold in the UK.

1 lbs ground beef

1 onion
½ cup cracker crumbs (about ½ of a sleeve 

 crushed by handfuls)
½ teaspoon of Garlic Powder
1  egg

1 tbs Worcestershire Sauce

1 pkg fresh mushrooms, rinsed


Pre heat oven to 350

Chop the onion, rinse & drain the


Make hamburger patties using ground beef,

bread or cracker crumbs, egg.

Fry or grill until patties are browned on both

sides. About 4 minutes each side.

Spray a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick and lay

browned patties in the pan lightly cover with


Gravy Ingredients:

¼ lb pork bulk sausage (maple flavor)

2 tablespoons butter

1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour

3 cups beef stock

3 oz softened cream cheese.

Put the sausage in the still warm pan. As the

sausage cooks, crumble into small pieces

using a fork. Add chopped onion. After 8

minutes, Add the butter then stir in the 

flour. Stirring it in slowly with a whisk. Stir

constantly and cook the mixture until the

flour is slightly browned (about 3-4

minutes). The mixture should smell nutty,

not burned.Add in the beef stock, stirring

constantly with a whisk until the gravy comes

to a boil.


 Dot with dabs of cream cheese and the 

sliced mushrooms. Cover the patties with the

gravy mixture.  Cover with foil.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes. 

This step plumps up the “steaks” and makes

them so juicy!


Serve with mashed potatoes and a nice mix

of green vegetables.

This traditional classic will always please those seeking a great home cooked comfort meal! The unexpected hint of maple from the sausage really makes this dish special!

So happy I can serve this to my Master and His Guests.
