Salisbury Steak

I was watching an episode of Best Recipes Ever the other day. It’s a Canadian-based cooking show that luckily also now airs here in Indianapolis. The host, Christine Tizzard, was making Salisbury steak. I filed the idea away as something I might make one day.Salisbury SteakBut as the days passed, I kept thinking about that steak more and more. And yes, I thought about the Salisbury steak that comes in Hungry-Man TV dinners, which were a food staple for me in my college years. The recipe from Christine kept popping into my head, so I finally up and made it and it was GOOD!
