Ground beef - Choose your favorite type of ground beef.
Eggs - Large eggs work great.
Dry mustard - Adds an excellent flavor to the meat.
Garlic powder - Pairs well with the other added seasonings.
Salt - To taste. A general rule of thumb is to use 1-2 - one teaspoon of salt per pound of meat.
Black pepper - To taste. I normally use about ¼ - ½ teaspoons per pound of meat.
Small onion - I like to use a sweet onion for this dish.
Olive oil - Avocado oil would also be a good choice.
Mushrooms - Fresh mushrooms are a great addition. You can use white mushrooms or portabello mushrooms.
Beef broth - To make the gravy.
Sour cream - Adds richness to the gravy.
How to Make Keto Salisbury Steak
Step One: Mix the ground chuck, dry seasonings, eggs, and onion in a bowl. Work the meat with your hands to make sure that all the ingredients are mixed well. Separate the mixture into 8 equal portions, and then shape them into beef patties.
Step Two: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and then the meat patties. You might need to cook in two batches.
Step Three: Brown the patties on one side, which will take about 5m minutes. Flip and repeat. Take the patties out of the skillet and put them on a paper towel.
Step Four: Use a spoon and carefully remove all but about 2 tablespoons of grease from the skillet.
Step Five: Add the beef broth and the mushrooms to the skillet and then scrape the bottom of the pan to remove any pieces. I use a wooden spoon to do this so I don’t scrape my skillet. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the mushrooms are soft. Stir in the sour cream.
Step Six: Put the cooked patties back into the skillet and turn them in the gravy to coat them.
Step Seven: Serve over creamy mashed cauliflower.
Add seasonings - For more flavor, you can add onion powder or even a little bit of cayenne pepper.
Add thickening powder - If you want to make the homemade gravy a little thicker, you can add a little xanthan gum for a thickening power boost. I prefer the keto gravy not to be thick, so I don't do this when I make this homemade Salisbury steak.
