Salisbury steak?

Vital Information | Oct 17, 2002 12:24 AM

At dinner tonight, the chowhounditas were regaling me with all that is de-gus-TING at school lunch. Top on their list was salisbury steak.

Now, maybe I am far enough removed from my school days, or perhaps I am in a fit of nostalgia, but suddenly tonight, I am craving salisbury steak. Ms. VI checked her vast array of cook books and came up with NO recipes. I had smugly grabbed the Joy of Cooking, saying I'd find one, only to be rebuffed there as well (there are recipes however for sloppy joes and swiss steak in JoC).

I did later find a few recipes on the TVFoodnetwork site, including an Emerilized version. They seem like a lot of work.

So, is there any place, beside your kids cafeteria to get a GOOD slab of salisbury steak?

By the way, in the course of my searches tonight, I learned that Dr. Salisbury whom the steak is named after, was like the Atkins of his day (ca. late 1800's). Salisbury steak was his way of getting people to eat a bit more protein.
