Making Amish Salisbury Steak
I was not so lucky with the basil since it has finished for me, but at least some of the kitchen garden herbs are fresh!
When I was young, we did not have much money to spread to food for 6 children, so my mother often used ground beef and Salisbury steak is one dish that we often had. I used to just love the delicious gravy and it did not feel anything like eating a hamburger, which, really, is basically what it is.
Since it is called Salisbury steak, we felt like we were fine dining! (And to make sure, the patties were oblong shaped, not round like hamburgers.)
And the gravy…it was to die for! We’d always have crusty bread to sop it up, and looked forward to being able to do so.
This recipe for Salisbury steak is full of flavor, easy to make and will satisfy the hungriest of eaters. Your family will ask to have it again and again!
