Fast, Simple, and Good - Salisbury Steak Fri, 12/29/06 8:35 AM (permalink)
A pound of Choice Ground Chuck, some chopped onion, steak sauce, and some S&P.





Get them going in a skillet.








When browned add French Onion soup, cover and simmer 10 minutes.








Add a buttered Baked potato








And you’re good to go. Get the potato going ahead of time; the rest is one of Rachel’s 30-minute meals.




BTW, what is the difference between Salisbury steak and a Hamburger?


John

      Looks good....but I think I'd make a little roux out of the drippings and then add the soup to make a nice gravy.
      I agree that a salad or some broccoli would help the system but, As always great photo's.
      Thanks for sharing!

        Well that looked good! It does look remarkably like a pan fried burger though, not that theres anything wrong with that! I've always thought salsbury steaks where flat cuts of meat that had been pressed or something to get a grid like texture on them, mom used to make them for dinner and they were usually as tender as a workboot sole. Those are one of the things that I've never bought since leaving home

          Dr. James Salisbury developed his recipe for the food that bears his name in the 19th century. He believed that people should not eat vegetables or starches, but should, instead, eat meats. Here is his "recipe"for what came to be called Salisbury Steak:

          "Eat the muscle pulp of lean beef made into cakes and broiled. This pulp should be as free as possible from connective or glue tissue, fat and cartilage.....The pulp should not be pressed too firmly together before broiling, or it will taste livery. Simply press it sufficiently to hold it together. Make the cakes from half an inch to an inch thick. Broil slowly and moderately well over a fire free from blaze and smoke. When cooked, put it on a hot plate and season to taste with butter, pepper, salt; also use either Worcestershire or Halford sauce, mustard, horseradish or lemon juice on the meat if desired."

            I believe you are describing cube steaks.

              DURN IT JOHN

              I am stuck in the office with nothing to eat except some nasty trail mix.

              can you email some of your leftovers

                Jim - You're so right. Up until a couple of years ago we ate a lot of veggies and salads. As my appetite has decreased I’ve stuck with those foods I like best, meat and potatoes. I do get one of those colon procedures every couple of years.

                Michael – Thank you.

                Cajunking – There are no leftovers.

                Thanks all,

                John

                  Hey John.....how about doing a vegatable stir fry, or something like that? Just my .02 cents. I have been eating WAY TOO MUCH meat lately and it is directly because of you, buddy! Those pictures are awesome!!

                      No kidding. They have a cube steak sandwich or full sized portion on the menu at the restaurant where I work. There is an 50 year old white porcelan machine that we feed sliced beef through to produce a working product. Last night, I cooked one and brought it home. I took a couple of bites before I gave it to my dogs.

                      Some think of Salisbury Steak to be some sort of hamburger. I see it as part of the stewed meatball food groups. It certainly isn't a steak any more than a cube steak is. Neither are what they claim to be... I feel that the only stewed steak that might qualify is Swiss Steak. It's been ages since I had one of those.

                          Michael, I do believe your correct! Cube steak cooked to a hockey puck like consistency then smothered in an onion gravy. I do recall enjoying the gravy over smashed baked potato.

                          For stir-fry a wok or wok-skillet (flat bottomed wok) is best but a regular skillet will work, a bit of soy sauce, sliced ginger and garlic goes in the bottom, then the sliced veggies of choice. I like a variety of colored bell peppers, onions, celery hearts, radishes but it depends on what looks good in the market. Cook on high heat, stirring constantly until done to your preference.

                          With all the bagged salads available today, a salad is the easiest part of a meal, just throw in some croutons and pour on some dressing or add in sliced onions, anchovies, cubed cheese, orange slices or anything else to make it your own

                              1 egg
                              1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
                              1 (10.75 ounce) can reduced-fat, reduced-sodium condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted, divided
                              1/4 cup finely chopped onion
                              1 pound lean ground beef
                              1/2 cup fat-free milk
                              1/4 teaspoon browning sauce (optional)
                              1/4 teaspoon salt
                              1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

                                Let's rephrase: "What's a vegetable?" I think I ate one. Once.

                                Foodbme, your recipe sounds pretty good to me. I've always thought a Salisbury Steak was kind of an oversized hamburger patty with gravy, served with rice and more tender than chewy. Somehow that's not discernibly different from the "Chopped Sirloin" one sees on menus a lot.

                                      The dish remains a favorite that I don't have often enough; thanks for reminding me. Those recipes all sound good. Mine was always simmered in Campbell's Cream of Mushroom but I'll give these others a try. I might add corn starch for a thicker gravy though.

                                        The dish remains a favorite that I don't have often enough; thanks for reminding me. Those recipes all sound good. Mine was always simmered in Campbell's Cream of Mushroom but I'll give these others a try. I might add corn starch for a thicker gravy though.



                                        Hmmm.. Frank O. Salisbury a painter and Dr James Salisbury a physician?

                                        Methinks neither of these Salisbury's knew squat about the famous steak.

                                        Prob some unknown chef in Paris invented the salisbury Steak.

                                          Believe it or not!

                                          What is the origin of Salisbury steak? How about hamburger?
                                          Salisbury steak is pretty much a fancy hamburger. Salisbury steak is the namesake of James Henry Salisbury (1823-1905), a doctor known for his comments on diets and nutrition during Civil War times. He recommended that people eat hamburger three times a day (a friend of the Atkins diet) chased by cups of hot water, especially for soldiers who were suffering from "camp diarrhea". He was a staunch advocate of shredding all food to make it more digestible. The term Salisbury steak was first recorded in 1897 but really came into full usage during World War I when patriotic Americans wanted a substitute for the German word hamburger. Hamburger was originally Hamburger steak (or Hamburg steak) as it was created in the city of Hamburg, Germany.

                                            Sorry my dear.

                                            "One of the earliest of the 'health food fadists', Dr. James H. Salisbury, a 19th century English/American physician (1823-1905), wrote 'The Relation of Alimentation and Disease'. He believed that diet was the main factor governing our health, so he created a special food and diet for his patients suffering from anemia, colitis, gout, rheumatism, arteriosclerosis, tuberculosis, and asthma.

                                            "He believed that vegetables and starchy foods could produce substances in the digestive system which poison and paralyze the tissues and can cause heart disease, tumors, mental illness and tuberculosis. He claimed our teeth are "meat teeth" and our digestive systems designed to digest lean meat, and that vegetables, fats, starches and fruit should only be 1/3 of our diet. Starch was digested slowly, so it would ferment in the stomach and produce vinegar, acid, alcohol and yeast, all of which were poisonous to our systems. His cure for this was his special diet, including Salisbury Steak, which should be eaten 3 times a day, together with lots of hot water to rinse out the digestive system."

                                            I've already posted his concoction which became known as Salisbury steak.

                                            Oh,and it's not from Wikipedia.

                                                Looks great, John but I'm with ADJ. I grew up with mushroom gravy on salisbury steak.

                                                  All I know is John made a good looking dinner,only his gravy was a bit different.But the rest was right on...a cube steak is not a salisbury steak-its a cube steak. Salisbury is definately made from coarse or finely ground beef.

                                                    As someone who is allergic to mushrooms I'll take the plain old brown gravy.

                                                      Use Progresso's onion soup (if you can find it) next time. WAY better than Campbells.

                                                          I normally use brown onion gravy, decided to try something different.
