Salisbury Steak ... the low carb way

Well I had heard of Salisbury a beautiful cathedral city in Wiltshire, England. I've heard of steak so nice when grilled, but I'd not come across a meal called Salisbury Steak until quite recently.

Of course many readers may know the dish well but for those who don't I give a few more details about this interesting dish that originated in the United States and the first known use of the name was in 1897.

Salisbury steak is a dish, originating in the United States, made from a blend of ground beef and other ingredients and usually served with gravy or brown sauce. It is a version of Hamburg steak.

Hamburg was a common embarkation point for transatlantic voyages during the first half of the 19th century and New York City was the most common destination. Various New York restaurants offered Hamburg-style American fillet, or even beefsteak à Hambourgeoise. Early American preparations of minced beef were therefore made to fit the tastes of European immigrants.

Coming from this history of ground meat dishes is the Salisbury steak. James Salisbury (1823–1905) was an American physician and chemist known for his advocacy of a meat-centred diet to promote health, and the term Salisbury steak for a ground beef patty served as an entrée has been used in the United States since 1897.

Fast forward to 2021 and a low carb version of Salisbury Steak has been spotted, and of course I thought I'd share the idea with you!

Interesting. I had heard of Salisbury steak but had no idea it used mince.

Iris Flavia said...

Now I want a burger. And go to Hamburg ;-)

Thank you for the history lesson!

I was in Salisbury and I admired the magnificent cathedral, but I didn't eat steak. I wish it looked very tasty.
Hugs and greetings:)

Those mashed potatoes look good with the gravy on it. Nice view of the Cathedral, too.

Jan, I guess I have been making Salisbury Steak for years and didn't even know it. It was a staple when the kids were small. Everybody loved it and still do. Just threw some hamburger in a hot pan with seasoning, browned it up, opened a can of cream of mushroom soup, and mixed it all together. With mashed potatoes, a green and salad it is a very appealing meal! Your recipe does sound good and I will try it..Happy June..xxoJudy

Many thanks for your comment.
That is actually cauliflower mash a lower carb alternative to creamy mashed potatoes, but the recipe works well with both. Amend the nutrition details as necessary.

Salisbury Cathedral is a great place to visit, if you get the chance!

Have a happy Friday and a good weekend.

All the best Jan

We no longer eat red meat, but I might try this with ground turkey. I find that substituting turkey works sometimes, but certainly not always.
