salisbury steak


noun

  1. ground beef, sometimes mixed with other foods, shaped like a hamburger patty and broiled or fried, often garnished or served with a sauce.

n.1897, from J.H. Salisbury (1823-1905), U.S. physician and food specialist, who promoted it. Incorrect use for “hamburger” traces to World War I and the deliberate attempt to purify American English of German loan words.
