Sailsbury Steak with Japanese Sauce

“Sailsbury Steak”

I wonder how many people have heard of “Sailsbury Steak/Deutsche Beefsteak”. This dish is basically a burger without a bun. When I cooked this dish for one of my friends, he asked me “Where is bread?”. I laughed out load 🙂 In the end he decided to have it with a couple of slices of bread and tomato sauce 😉 Aussie Style 🙂

Salisbury steak or Deutsche beefsteak is very popular in Japan. They come with a lot of different types of sauce like Demi-glase sauce, melted cheese, mushroom sauce and so on. Although Sailsbury steak is western cuisine, we put a twist on it using Japanese sauce. So I would like to share the most well known Japanese sauce for Sailsbury steak.

Grated white radish is used for the sauce. There are actually nutritious benefits to have white radish with meat . White radish is a cruciferous vegetable of the family Brassicaceae like cabbage, broccoli and kale. They contain enzymes to help digestion of protein. So we have meat or fish with white radish or crumbled port cutlet with a lot of cabbage to support digestion of protein.
