Salisbury steak is a perfect old-fashioned comfort food. It is essentially meatballs braised in onion mushroom gravy but the ground meat mixture is shaped into a round or oval patty to make it look more like steak. It was invented by Dr. James Salisbury in the mid 1800's. He was sure that protein was necessary for the health of troops in battle and this recipe used ingredients were inexpensive and easily available. My nephew, Charles Krangle, who was in the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan, told me they were often served ground meat dishes there too. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles.
