Dr. James Salisbury was a quite weird man who claimed that human’s teeth were only “meat teeth” and that vegetables and starchy foods poison people. But we remember this man not only as a meat fanatic, but mostly as talented physician who did much for developing a low-carb diet. He was an inventor of this famous steak, it was named after him.
Classical Salisbury steak didn’t contain any veggies and, of course, adding mushroom gravy wasn’t Dr. James’s idea. But there are so many different variations of this steak now with so many deviations from the initial concept of this dish, so this Paleo Salisbury steak recipe is unexpectedly relatively close to original.
In fact, it’s not a steak, but a kind of cutlets. But the name settled down very firmly and I don’t think someone will ever call it with another name.
Yes, it’s hard to call Salisbury steak a fancy dish, but it’s a total yum. It’s easy to cook and the full preparation and cooking process longs for 30 minutes, but tastes like it took hours to make! And when it has a golden brown crust and is served with bright veggies and mushrooms aside, it looks VERY appetizing.
For example, you can serve your Salisbury steak aside of poached pumpkin and broccoli, dressed with raw honey and olive oil. I would pay to hear Dr. Salisbury’s reaction on such an “unworthy” combination on his beloved steak :)
But I care more about your thoughts about this recipe. Hope, you will love it!
