East Meets West Salisbury Steak

This isn't your traditional Salisbury Steak recipe.  This recipe has an Asian-flair with the water chestnuts and hoisin sauce.  This is also great served over brown rice.  I much prefer this version over the Salisbury Steak I had in elementary school.

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped water chestnuts
1/2 cup chopped green onion, divided
1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
2 1/2 TBS hoisin sauce, divided
3 tsp minced ginger, divided (fresh or jarred, not dried)
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1 TBS rice vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar

In a medium bowl, lightly mix the beef, water chestnuts, 1/4 cup green onions, bell pepper, 1 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, 2 teaspoon ginger and pepper.  Shape into four 3 1/2 inch patties.

Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat.  Add the patties and cook for 4 minutes on each side until cooked through.  Remove the cooked "steaks," cover, and set aside.

With the skillet still over medium heat, add the beef broth, 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce, vinegar, 1 teaspoon ginger, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup green onions to the pan.  Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thickened.  Return the steaks to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes, until thoroughly heated through.  Serve topped with hoisin pan sauce.

Makes 4 servings

  1. He he!  Anybody prefers a recipe version other than what they ate in elementary school.

  2. OK...I'm a strange one. I actually liked the school lunch salisbury steak. ;) However, this recipe is much, much better! It was delicious!
