Ever wonder why it's called Salisbury Steak? It was invented by Dr. J. H. Salisbury, who was an early proponent of a low-carbohydrate diet for weight loss; the term "Salisbury steak" has been in use in the U.S. since 1897. Nineteenth Century ideas of low-carb must've been very different from ours today! Salisbury Steak has been a favorite in our house for years. I like to double the recipe and cook it in my electric skillet so we can freeze the leftovers for a quick future meal.
