Salisbury steak hails from the late 19th century, invented by a Civil War doctor named, naturally, Salisbury. He conceived of a meal he thought would offer all the nutrients the human body would need: meat, meat, and more meat. (He thought vegetables were poison!) Like medicine, he thought his Salisbury steak should be eaten three times a day. We don't recommend eating these meatballs three times a day, but we think you'll be tempted to: a delicious mushroom sauce drapes these perfectly textured meatballs. The garlicky green beans on the side wouldn't have been Dr. Salisbury's prescription, but they're a darn tasty addition.

    Return pan used to sear meatballs to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add sliced mushrooms and a pinch of salt to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes. Add ½ cup water, demi-glace, and meatballs and any accumulated juices to hot pan. Stir occasionally until sauce is slightly thickened and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner and swirl in remaining sour cream. While meatballs cook, cook green beans.

Add ¼ cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover, and stir occasionally until green beans are tender, 4-6 minutes.
