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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Salisbury steak sounds fancy but it's incredibly easy to make. In Sasha's recipe, the hamburger patties are seasoned to perfection and pan-fried to a toasty brown. The onions are sauteed in the pan with the hamburger juices and cooked with the gravy. All the flavors meld together and are fantastic. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes for comfort food at its best. This Salisbury steak is so good you may have to double the recipe.
