Salisbury Belmont Burger

August 31, 2009

We’re having a week of burger posts at Foodo – so fire up those grills and git a move on!

My favorite Salisbury Steaks with Belmont Sauce as a burger recipe?  You got it!  All this goodness in one spot I can hardly stand it.

Katy could probably quote you the recipe by heart. Every week on her night to fix dinner she’d make it. When the kids asked, “What’s for dinner?” Somebody would say, “Katy’s cooking.” And everybody knew it was Salisbury Steaks with Belmont Sauce. I still love it!



The recipes was published in the Kate’s Kitchen Cookbook……accredited to me.  That’s where we always made it from.  I’m sure at one time or another it was on a recipe card.  I just can’t remember.  This cookbook is dated 1977.

Handful fresh parsley (chopped)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp Tabasco Sauce

Traditionally Salisbury Steaks are oval shaped and sprinkled lightly with flour then brushed with cooking oil.


Broil [or grill] 6-8 minutes on each side

Butter buns and toast them on the grill

Place burger on bun, top with Belmont Sauce and sauteed onion & peppers



Belmont Sauce


3 Tbsp butter (melt in saucepan)

1/2 C catsup

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp Wocestershire sauce

1 tsp prepared mustard

1 tsp tabasco sauce

2 Tbsp sherry wine

Bring to a simmer and reduce by 25% or until nicely thickened so it will stick to the burger.



Sauteed Onions & Peppers

3 Tbsp Butter

1 Medium Onion Sliced Thin

1/2 a Red Pepper Sliced Thin

1/2 a Green Pepper Sliced Thin

4 Cloves Garlic Minced

    Yes!! Salisbury Steaks can be burgers!!

    And here’s another epiphany:

    Make them into meatballs and freeze them.
    (“Great new snack idea!”)
    Nuke one or two at a time whenever you’re feeling a bit peckish.

    I lost many pounds like that in Roatan a couple years ago. I’d alternate meatballs with shrimp. It was always a treat. With Salisbury Steak meatballs, I’ll be in heaven!

    Holy Belmont Sauce, Batman! Ran out and bought some good 85/15 ground beef (I usually use 4% for health reasons) and got to work. Wow, those are good. Thanks for the recipe!
