Hearty Keto Salisbury Steak

keto salisbury steak ingredients Salisbury steak is an easy hamburger recipe where patties are cooked in a simple onion and mushroom gravy. These patties are flavorful when smothered in this rich mushroom gravy. This keto recipe is the perfect comfort meal when you need something filling.

The Thickener For The Sauce

Traditionally, salisbury steak sauce is thickened with either flour or cornstarch. Both are not keto approved thickeners as they are higher in carbohydrates.

For my keto recipes, I like to use arrowroot powder as a thickener. It has 7x the thickening power as regular flour so you only have to use a little bit of it to achieve a similar thickening effect. When making a gravy or sauce, most recipes call for two tablespoons of flour. Two tablespoons of flour has 12 grams of carbs in it. Using ½ teaspoon of arrowroot powder, only 3 grams of carbohydrates are added to the entire dish.

If you don’t have arrowroot powder on hand, you can substitute with 1 tablespoon of coconut flour as a thickener.

Keto Approved Red Wines

This recipe for keto salisbury steak calls for red wine. You could omit the wine if you are trying to abstain and add extra broth.

Most red wines are keto approved. Try to use a red variety with the lowest carb count like a dry red wine. I prefer to use pinot noir (3.4 g carbs per 5 oz) or cabernet sauvignon (3.8 g carbs per 5 oz).

Perfect Pairings With Keto Salisbury Steak

The mushroom and onion gravy from keto salisbury steak is delicious over mashed cauliflower, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, shirataki noodles, asparagus or broccoli.

Keto Salisbury Steak Storage

You can freeze the uncooked patties alone and thaw them when you want to continue with the rest of the recipe. Or freeze the cooked patties in the mushroom & onion gravy. Then unthaw the cooked patties, defrost them in the refrigerator and simmer the sauce and patties in a skillet until warmed through.
