Salisbury Steaks is one of my childhood favorite dinners. My dad would make the microwavable version once a week and I loved it every time. As time grew on, we didn’t eat them nearly as much, maybe only once a year but it still brings me back to those weekly dinners from when I was young.
This recipe will show you how to make them homemade and they are TO DIE FOR. Absolutely simple and quick, packed with a ton of flavor AND its low carb! A person really can’t go wrong with a recipe like that.
I was gifted one of those “farmers to family” boxes and there were some premade salisbury steak patties in the box. So the way I made it already had that part done for me. Now I am sure, those aren’t considered low carb but I will share with you the homemade patties that you can make that are.
How to make Salisbury Steaks
You’ll want to use your hand mixer, just mix everything together slowly so you don’t make a huge mess. This way you ensure everything is mixed well together.
Than you will want to form your meat mixture, into small patties. They cook up better when they are in smaller patties. Place them into your oiled cast iron skillet and get a good sear on them. Once they have a sear, remove from the pan and make your gravy.
When I made this recipe, I used pre-made Salisbury Steaks Patties. I did the same thing with them, I sautéed them in the pan for a couple minutes, they were frozen, and than I removed from the pan and made the gravy.
How to make Mushroom Gravy
Chop up your onion and mushrooms, throw a couple tablespoons of butter down. Sauté your mushrooms and onions until they are golden brown, than add your beef stock, Worcestershire Sauce, garlic, and black pepper. Bring to a simmer and add your slurry, and than place your patties into the gravy.
The gravy will thicken as it simmers. You’ll want to simmer for about 10 minutes, so the gravy gets a nice thickness to it.
What kind of sides do I serve these with?
Mashed potatoes are of course a given, you can’t have one without the other. The gravy goes so good on top of the mashed potatoes.
Broccoli would be a really great side. Get that vegetable intake and keep it a healthy meal.
Funeral (Cheesy) potatoes are probably my favorite and go REALLY great with this recipe. They are most certainly NOT low carb, but if you’re going to splurge, might as well be on some potatoes!
