The Origin of Salisbury Steak
The Salisbury steak gets its name from its creator, Dr. James Salisbury, a physician during the Civil War. Salisbury believed that food was the key to health and hypothesized that particular foods could be used to cure diseases.
While treating soldiers with intestinal woes during the war, he tested his idea by only feeding chopped meat to the ailing soldiers. Salisbury chose lean beef because he believed it was the easiest food to digest.
In 1888, he published a book of his findings called The Relation of Alimentation and Disease. This book became very popular and ushered in what can be considered the first “fad” diet in American history. He was also one of the first Americans to promote a low-carb diet as a means for weight loss.
