Salisbury Steak

This dish isn't exactly what is seems, I first came across it in America when browsing the ready meals out of curiosity for all the different things they had! 

Branded the ultimate TV dinner, usually comes as a ready meal with mash in one of those little containers with all the compartments, but it actually was a meal that an American Physician Dr J.H. Salisbury invented as a weight loss meal for a low carb diet!  

When I read all the information, and what went into it - I thought it would be quite apt to make for my site!  It's actually tasty and delicious!   More of a hamburger cooked in a sauce than an actual steak, but I promise it' wont dissapoint!

This is my version of the recipe, but you can find more authentic ones online! Martha Stewart does an awesome looking version!

It also freezes very well, so good to make in advance.  I decided to go retro and serve it with Smash and green beans, I had to work hard not to lick the plate!

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 2

You Will Need: 

250g  Extra Lean Mince Beef 
1 Banana Shallot (small onion will also do the trick) halved one half finely diced one half finely sliced
1 Garlic Clove Finely Diced
3 Tsp of Worcestershire Sauce
150g Mushrooms
Beef Stock Cube made up with 300ml water
Salt & Pepper for Seasoning
Frylight/ Calorie Controlled Oil Spray


Place the mince in a bowl, add the onion, garlic, salt & pepper and 2 Tsp of the Worcestershire sauce

Mix with a wooden spoon and halve equally

Start to form a patty, as if you were making a burger, but instead of it being round, make it into an oval shape

If you have time, chill it in the fridge for 30 mins to keep its shape

Spray a frying  pan with oil, and start to cook the 'steaks' cook for 4 minutes one side and then 4 minutes the other depending on thickness this should be long enough - if your 'steaks' are thin, less time will be needed

When cooked, remove from the pan and set aside. 

Add the onions to cook in the same pan that you just took the 'steaks' out of, cook on a low heat until softened and add the mushrooms, if the pan is dry add a little water cook until the mushrooms are soft.

Add the remaining Worcestershire sauce and the stock, return the 'steaks' to pan, heating through and allowing the sauce to reduce by half.
