Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy
and mashed sweet potatoes / peas

Active: 50 min Total: 50 min

Salisbury steak was a member request and is pure comfort food - great for cold weather. Not really "steak," the dish is made of lightly seasoned ground beef patties seared in a pan and served with a rich gravy.
Smarts: The gravy served with this version of Salisbury steak includes sliced onions and mushrooms for added depth. If you prefer a smooth gravy, feel free to skip one or both of these additions to the gravy.

Prep

  1. Sweet potatoes / Onions - (If prepping right before cooking, get potatoes boiling before continuing with prep.) Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make Salisbury spice mix - Combine salt, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Make gravy mixture - Combine stock, water, aminos, and mustard. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Mushrooms - Slice mushrooms, if not pre-sliced. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  5. Form patties - Combine beef with Salisbury spice mix and tomato paste. Form into 4 oval patties (for 4 servings; adjust if customizing). Try not to overwork the mixture as this will make the “steaks” more dense. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Make

  1. Place potatoes into a saucepan and cover with cold water and some salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes until potatoes can be easily pierced by a knife. Drain and let sit in a colander for ~5 minutes to let the steam escape (this creates creamier potatoes vs. liquidy potatoes).
  2. Use a masher to mash steamed potatoes with butter (portion for potatoes), and some salt. Set aside, covered to keep warm.
  3. Heat a saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and then patties to heated oil. Cook patties on one side until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip patties and continue cooking until cooked to your liking (similar to burgers) - 2 to 3 minutes more for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium, 5 to 6 minutes more for well-done.
  4. Set patties aside, covered to keep warm. Return pan to heat.
  5. If the pan is dry, add a splash of oil. Add onions and mushrooms and saute until soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Add almond flour and stir until no dry spots of flour remain, ~2 minutes.
  7. Pour gravy mixture over onions / mushrooms while whisking. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer gravy until it thickens slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Place frozen peas in a microwave safe bowl and cover with a damp paper towel. Defrost until no longer frozen and then cook on high until heated through, ~1 minute. Remove and toss with butter (portion for peas) and some salt and pepper.
  9. Serve Salisbury steaks over mashed sweet potatoes with gravy spooned over top. Serve peas on the side. Enjoy!

Yummmmm! Sauce didn't thicken up a ton, but that was just fine over mashed potatoes.
