Skinny Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy Recipe
Lean ground beef and turkey are combined with breadcrumbs and sauteed onions then shaped into patties and simmered in a mushroom gravy to create a lightened version of this retro American dish.
It’s hard not to imagine a TV dinners when you think of Salisbury Steak, originally a poor man’s beef dish made with ground beef and fillers, shaped to resemble a real steak back in the great depression when steak was a luxury.
I recently was asked to create a lightened up Salisbury Steak, and I was excited to play around with this! For my skinny version, I combined turkey and lean beef to keep it light yet still maintain a beefy flavor. The addition of mushrooms to the gravy completes the dish sneaking in vegetables and giving this a wonderful flavor.
