While trying to use up ground beef in my freezer I came across this recipe I had in my Recipe Box on Food Network. Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy featured on Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee.
My extensive liquor cabinet (holds 4-5 bottles) didn’t have cognac so I switched it out with sweet vermouth (which I use in various steak recipes)! It is mainly used to sauté the mushrooms so the flavor isn’t that crucial to the overall recipe.
Served it with long grain wild rice and a side salad… made a simple perfect meal. I was drawn to the recipe since most of the ingredients I already had in the pantry.
I know what you’re thinking…WHAT does Salisbury steak have to do with the month of March and anything green??? Think hard..there’s an answer!
The answer: Absolutely NOTHING! That is why I was FORCED to make myself an after dinner cocktail… A GRASSHOPPER!!
· 1 shot green crème de menthe
· 1 shot white crème de cacao
· 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
Place crème de menthe, crème de cacao, and ice cream into a blender. Blend until thick and creamy…YUMMMMMMM
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.
