Info
A BBQ friend mentioned to me he was thinking of trying Salisbury Steak on the grill. This struck a nerve with me, because the next thing I knew I was looking for recipes for grilled Salisbury Steak. The one I found was called Grilled Salisbury Steak but it was a bit confusing since it was done using the broiler. It sounded good, but there was one hurdle: The recipe had you use a seasoned flour to coat the meat before putting it under the broiler. If I floured the meat on the grill would it burn? Would I lose the great grilled flavor which was the original point? All good questions. The seasoned flour sounded really good so what I decided to do was try to get the best of both worlds. I sear the meat on the open grill for about half the total time. Next I would remove it apply the seasoned flour and brown it on the flat top griddle insert for my grill. Then the meat was to be placed on a warm platter and topped with what they called Belmont sauce. How did it turn out? Excellent. I had high hopes for this and it exceeded my expectations. Everything about it was good including the Belmont Sauce which was full of interesting flavors. I‘m glad it worked the first time out of the box because I plan to make it regularly.
