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
½ cup cracker crumbs (about ½ of a sleeve
crushed by handfuls)
½ teaspoon of Garlic Powder
1 tbs Worcestershire Sauce
1 pkg fresh mushrooms, rinsed

sides. About 4 minutes each side.
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.
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.
