Asian Salisbury Steaks & Watercress


A refreshing twist on classic Salisbury steaks. The added sweet red bell pepper, scallions and ginger really boost the flavor of the steak. The watercress gives a nutritional boost. This recipe could work equally as well served on a bed of mashed potatoes with gravy instead of the watercress.













Trans-fat Free


173.4 ml/g ground beef, lean
79 ml sweet red bell peppers
finely diced
79 ml scallions, spring or green onions
30 ml bread crumbs
plain dry
30 ml hoisin sauce
15 ml ginger
minced fresh
7.5 ml canola oil
115.6 ml/g watercress
trimmed, about 8 cups, 1 bag
59 ml chinese (xiao xiang) wine
or dry sherry


Place rack in upper third of oven; preheat the broiler.

Coat a broiler pan and rack with cooking spray.

Gently mix beef, bell pepper, scallions, breadcrumbs, 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce and ginger in a medium bowl until just combined. You may wish to add an egg to help bind the ingredients together.

Form the mixture into 2 oblong patties and place on the prepared broiler-pan rack.

Brush the tops of the patties with ½ teaspoon oil.

Broil, gently and carefully flipping once to prevent the "steaks" from breaking apart, until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over high heat.

Add watercress and cook, stirring often, until just wilted, 1 to 3 minutes. Divide the watercress between 2 plates.

Return the pan to medium-high heat.

Add rice wine (or sherry) and the remaining 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce. Feel free to add some ginger and garlic to the watercress if you wish.

Cook, stirring, until smooth, bubbling and slightly reduced, about 1 minute.

Top the watercress with the Salisbury steaks and drizzle with the pan sauce. If the pan sauce seems to thin you can thicken it with a bit of cornstarch mixed with some water, add to the pan and cook for 1 minute.

Didn't have hoisin or that funky wine, I used A1 Steak sauce and some red Italian wine and it worked fine.
