How Bobby Flay Cooks Thick And Creamy Sauce For Salisbury Steak
A sauce for Salisbury steak usually combines Worcestershire, Dijon mustard, ketchup, and garlic. Celebrity chef Bobby Flay adds two additional ingredients for his best take on it.
Flay says that he adds tomato paste and half-and-half to the sauce for extra flavor and texture. Tomato paste provides a naturally sweet and savory taste and a thick texture.
Half-and-half ties the sauce together, creating an even richer consistency without adding a starch like flour, which can make the sauce cloudy and dull flavors.
To make the sauce, cook your Salisbury steak, then turn the stove down to medium heat and cook sliced mushrooms and onions in the same pot or pan.
Once the veggies are soft, add the sauce ingredients and let it simmer. Finish by adding a splash of half-and-half while whisking constantly and pour the sauce over the steak.
