Recently I was reading the Monmouth Health and Life Magazine, when I came to their “Tastes” section. Featured in the February/March 2021 issue were recipes from Monmouth Meats in Red Bank, NJ. Stewart Goldstein, owner, shared his recipe for Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy. This took me back to my childhood when my mother occasionally purchased TV dinners. The choices were usually friend chicken, turkey with stuffing or Salisbury steak. I would say Salisbury steak was popular in the 1960’s.
In the September 2020 issue of Southern Living Magazine, there was recipe for Hamburger Stew with Croutons. The image in the magazine was very appealing and made me want to try it.
For the recipe you’ll need ground chuck, dry mustard, dried oregano, kosher salt, yellow onion, fresh garlic, tomato paste, all-purpose flour, beef broth, a can of diced tomatoes, ketchup, baby red potatoes, frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, lima beans, peas and green beans), hamburger buns and olive oil.
I’ve mentioned many times how I peruse the food store flyers for weekly meal inspiration. Last week, I was inspired by Whole Foods sale on bone-in short ribs ($5.99/lb. for Prime Members). I had found two recipes on the Williams-Sonoma website and settled on Italian Braised Short Ribs. However, I didn’t have two hours the other night; instead, I used my pressure cooker. It took me 30 minutes at high pressure to achieve what braising in the oven would have taken two hours.
For the recipe you’ll need flour, salt, pepper, bone-in short ribs, olive oil, pancetta , onions, garlic, red pepper flakes, carrots, tomato paste, sugar, red wine, beef broth, balsamic vinegar,
