What is Salisbury Steak?
The name can certainly be misleading because it really isn’t a steak at all. This dish is made with ground beef, and bread crumbs to form your mixture into patties or steak-like shapes, herbs, seasonings, and eggs. It’s the poor man’s steak because you don’t have to break the bank serving your family some delicious home-cooked food that’s filling and super tasty. Our recipe used either ground beef or cube beef tenderloins. This meat is super lean and one of the most desirable cuts. It is a little more expensive but you will reap the reward because the flavor is not able to be matched.
