(Inside: The cafeteria lady said I could make this when I got older–so I did. She was totally cool, and she’s totally the inspiration for this Instant Pot Salsbury Steak. And my belly couldn’t be happier.)
For real, I am totally nostalgic for the cafeteria lady lunches I had as a kid.
There was this specific cafeteria lady that just was so super sweet–all her kids had grown up and moved away and so she treated us like her grandkids.
And I didn’t eat lunchline often–had a deal with my mom that I could keep the money if I packed my lunch. LOL!
But on salsbury steak day…dude. Eff the chance at $2…I was buying my lunch.
And I even remember having the convo with the lunch lady about how much I loved it–and could I make it at home.
She just laughed. And then told me I sure could when I got older. LOL!
So, for 9-year-old me, this is Instant Pot Salsbury Steak.
The culmination of almost a lifetime of love.
So you know this Instant Pot Salsbury Steak is the shit.
Like my kids will not have to spend THEIR $2–I’ll just whip up some Instant Pot Salsbury Steak and they’ll be able to still have their favorite soulfood anytime.
Of course, they’ll probably be sick of it and the school will probably serve something infinitely better (in my kid’s opinion), but come on. Heh.
So, go ahead and pin this recipe for Instant Pot Salsbury Steak so you’ve got it the next time you’re craving some old-fashioned salsbury steak in a hurry.
