Salisbury steak is one of my favorite things to make for several reasons. First of all, I can get this recipe finished completely in less than 30 minutes. Secondly, if I forgot to thaw out the ground beef, I can easily thaw it out using the microwave or cold water method in 3 minutes or less than an hour, respectively. Even I, the meal-planning ultimate advocate, don’t always plan my meals out as I should. When I don’t, this is my go-to recipe. Best of all? It’s gluten-free. That’s right, no bread crumbs here. It’s low carb as well since I am using coconut flour. It is Paleo friendly, Diabetes friendly, Low-carb friendly, Ketogenic friendly. The only thing it is NOT is vegetarian friendly. I’ll work on that ;).
I can’t seem to get a good picture of the finished product, but just pour the mushroom gravy over the steak (and maybe some mashed potatoes) and serve with a green vegetable, like broccoli. You can also cut the mushrooms into smaller sizes if you prefer. Recipe card is below! I will update this with a better picture at some point.
- 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
- 1 tsp italian seasoning
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 6-8 mushrooms, sliced
- 2 tbsp cassava flour or other starch (corn starch, potato starch)
- 1 cup homemade beef stock
- 2 tbsp homemade butter or beef fat skimmed from stock
- Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. Cast iron preferable. Combine ingredients for beef patties in electric mixer using paddle or dough hook, or by hand. Mix until ingredients homogeneously combined. Divide mixture into 4 equal parts, then form into patties. Place patties on preheated skillet. You should hear a sizzle. Cook for about 6-7 minutes per side, until meat is thoroughly cooked and no pink remains (or until meat reaches 160 degrees to ensure food safety).
- While meat is cooking, melt butter or beef fat in pan, then add mushrooms and cook until soft. Add cassava or other starchy flour (e.g., corn starch, potato starch) and stir until a paste forms. Cook paste until bubbly. Then, add beef stock slowly. Stir until thickened. Pour over beef patty. Serve meal with mashed potatoes and broccoli.
