BBQ Salisburry Steak and Haitian Macaroni & Cheese

This recipe was inspired by Traditional Salisbury Steak.  For the barbeque, I rather leave it up to the cook to choose your favorite barbeque sauce.  In our house we like to use spicy honey.  I believe for this recipe mesquite smoke will do well.  Also keep in mind, that the roux process is something you have to keep your eye on with constant stirring.  I served the Salisbury Steak with some good ol'fashion Haitian Macaroni and Cheese.  This recipe was inspired by HaitianRecipes:Gartin de Macaroni.  I did some changes to the recipe since I like to use Dijon mustard, but it is definitely an easy recipe to make and I would suggest on cooking this macaroni and cheese on low heat to prevent curdling.  Plus as you can see when you look at the recipe, it is called macaroni, and I know a lot of Haitians hat love to use penne pasta instead :)  Also, I suggest you watch the video to learn and see how she makes her recipe.
