I was in a hurry and defrosted some steak, thinking it would be the fasted thing to make. Then I decided that plain steak, whether barbecued, grilled or fried, just didn’t appeal to me. I haven’t had a salisbury steak in decades, and have never made one myself. So I decided to make a gluten free salisbury steak recipe for this blog, as it is a classic American dish. When my husband tasted it he said it was delicious, and added, “Did you notice that I said ‘delicious’? I usually say something’s good. That was delicious!” So, if you and/or your family enjoys a bit of a sweet sauce, you’ll love this recipe, as well. Enjoy!
Many individuals make a form of salisbury steak using ground beef, however, the traditional recipe calls for minced meat, or a blend of minced meats. You may use all beef, or add a bit of pork to the mix. I used top sirloin steak and because it is a tender cut of meat, it truly made the recipe. Use whatever cut of meat you enjoy, as the simmering time will make just about any cut of meat tender.
