When I was younger and ate red meat, I often asked my grandma for hamburger with the gravy. Ie: Salisbury Steak. Now it isn't often I eat meat, let alone red meat. But when I make this dish, I have a few bites because I cannot deny myself a delicious treat. This recipe is the traditional Salisbury Steak, with a few of my own additions & secret ingredients! Minus the mushrooms. My family doesn't care for them, but feel free to add them if you are a fan! :) This dish goes well with any type of potato, rice, or noodles. A nice fresh crisp salad w/Italian dressing is a compliment.
