Asian "Salisbury" Steak

I modified this recipe a little from the original. I use 93/7 ground beef instead of 90/10. I also use 16 oz of ground beef instead of 12 oz. I like a leaner, bigger steak!

Servings: 4
Preparation time: 35 minutes


  • 16 ounces 93%-lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 4 bunches or 2 4-ounce bags watercress, trimmed (16 cups)
  • 1/2 cup Shao Hsing rice wine, (see Ingredient note) or dry sherry


1. Place rack in upper third of oven; preheat the broiler. Coat a broiler pan and rack with cooking spray.

2. Gently mix beef, bell pepper, scallions, breadcrumbs, 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce and ginger in a medium bowl until just combined. Form the mixture into 4 oblong patties and place on the broiler-pan rack. Brush the tops of the patties with 1 teaspoon oil. Broil, flipping once, until cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.

3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add watercress and cook, stirring often, until just wilted, 1 to 3 minutes. Divide the watercress among 4 plates. Return the skillet to medium-high heat, add rice wine (or sherry) and the remaining 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce and stir until smooth, bubbling and slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Top the watercress with the Salisbury steaks and drizzle with the pan sauce.
