You have a link on this page: Blue Boar Recipes, but there is no recipe,
it just goes to the Courier-Journal website. Do you have the recipe?


Hi Mel,

Sorry, at one time that link led to an actual recipe, but the Courier-Journal appears to have removed it from public access. That happens a lot on the web. The only way to get to that particular webpage now is by subscription.

However, I did a search and found two slightly different recipes for Blue Boar Salisbury Steak elsewhere on Internet message boards & blogs. See below
