What is the difference between a Hamburger Steak and a Salsbury Steak?
I stopped at the Happy Days Diner in Crandall the other day and had their Salsbury Steak and it was awesome. Really thick and tender with brown gravy and onion's and looked like what I have called in the past a Hamburger Steak.
The biggest difference is a hamburger steak has no sauce/gravy on it. It may be topped with grilled onions.
A Salisbury steak is typically just seasoned with salt and pepper, cooked, then simmered in a brown onion sauce/gravy.
A hamburger steak will have seasoning within the meat. I will put green peppers and onions in my hamburger steak. Then, I'll season the meat with salt/pepper, garlic powder (or salt), Worcestershire sauce, and maybe a bit of hot sauce. The hamburger steak is fried, broiled, or grilled. I sometimes will put some chopped fresh garlic in the meat as well.
