We love a good Salisbury Steak and the gravy in today’s recipe is most delicious and really makes this a winner.

To me, a Salisbury Steak is something between a meatball and a meatloaf. This recipe is so easy and quick to make, both the steaks and the gravy.

The gravy is more a sauce as it is not as meaty and rich as a gravy, but however you see the topping, gravy or sauce, this is a must try recipe.

I had my first taste of a Salisbury Steak about 4 or 5 years ago. And I must confess, it was not what I expected at all.

Firstly it is not a steak as we know it in South-Africa, but simply formed in the shape of a steak.

Secondly, I thought it must be a dish which originated in the old Salisbury, now Harare in Zimbabwe. But again, I was wrong. An American physician, Dr JH Salisbury invented this dish.

Now, I know you are not here for a history lesson, but for the recipe. (I just find the oddest things curious!)

As with meatballs and meatloaf, this is one of the best comfort foods around.

Served with creamy mashed potatoes, a vegetable side or two and dinner is set.

The mushroom sauce is really out of this world delicious !

And can be served with just about any meat, as a topping for burgers, a sauce over vegetables and whatever else you can think of.
