Chicken Salisbury

Chicken Salisbury

Decade ago when i came here,my knowledge of meat cuts ,names and  products  were non – existent .Back home,we ate chicken and fish mostly,mutton occasionally.Indians(Hindus) abstain from eating red meat such as beef and pork and being raised in the family it shaped my taste buds strongly.

When i came here,it seemed like i was bombarded with meat vocabulary.’Deli’ was a new word for me and eating ‘cold meat’ was inconceivable.To this day,i am not a fan of deli meat and cold sandwiches.I would eat that for the lack of better option.Though now,that i am a Christian,i still don’t prefer red meats in any form.I have been asked about it many times and answer is simply,my taste buds doesn’t agree with it and i have no desire to pursue that.There are so many food choices.Let me tell you what happened.

Back then,one day in the cafeteria,I ordered chicken Fried steak.I knew the word ‘chicken’ but ‘steak’ had not entered my vocabulary that time and i didn’t think much of it.On the first bite,i realized it is NOT chicken and friend who did eat red meats confirmed my doubt.I can laugh about it now ! So ever since i have tried to educate myself about different  meat, just so i know what ‘not’ to eat 🙂

So when i learnt about Salisbury Steak.Name fascinated me Salisbury?So simply put

  • Salisbury steak is ground meat patties(beef preferably),shaped like steak,cooked and served along with gravy and mashed potatoes.
  • I call it hamburger with gravy.
  • I know traditionally it is made with ‘beef’ but who says you can’t sub the meat of your choice?So i used chicken.
  • Recipe is  what i thought of adding as i was looking into my refrigerator and spice drawer.I gave it Asian kick with Hoisen sauce(Chinese BBQ sauce),Panko bread crumbs(Japanese style bread crumbs) and curry powder.

It  was very well liked by everyone in our family.I served it along with Pumpkin Squash rice.My plan was to serve it with peas and potatoes but i had served peas night before and it would have been sinful to serve peas to my no-peas loving family back to back !
