Paleo Salisbury Steaks

So the other day I was planning to make burgers, but at the last minute I changed my mind.  I decided to try something new instead!  I have made Salisbury Steaks before, and we have always enjoyed them.  If you don't know, they are basically a hybrid of meatballs and burgers, with some tasty onions and sauce.  I used a basic recipe that I found online to Paleo-ize, but I also used Pioneer Woman's delicious recipe for some flavor inspiration.  The result was delicious!  These ended up super moist and flavorful, and were pretty easy, too!  Here is what I did:

Paleo Salisbury Steaks
(serves 2-4)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/3 c almond flour
  • 1/4 c minced onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • salt & pepper
  • 1-2 T Paleo Ketchup
  • OPTIONAL: 2-3 dashes Worcestershire (not Paleo, but adds flavor!)
  • olive oil
  • 2 c beef broth (chicken broth is fine)
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 c mushrooms, sliced
  • 2-3 T arrowroot powder
In a large bowl, combine beef, almond flour, minced onion, egg, salt & pepper, 1 T Paleo ketchup, and optional Worcestershire sauce.  Mix well until all combined.  Divide into 4 equal parts and form patties (I make mine look like flat little footballs). 

Heat a large skillet with a splash of olive oil over medium-high.  Once it is hot, add the patties.  Cook about 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Once cooked through, remove them to a plate.  Return the skillet to the stove over medium heat and add a bit more oil if needed.  Add sliced onions and mushrooms and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add the broth to the skillet, as well as 1 T Paleo ketchup and optional dash of Worcestershire sauce.  Season with salt and pepper as needed.  Let it cook down and thicken for a few minutes.  Add the arrowroot powder and continue to cook until it reaches your desired thickness.  Mine was a little thin- add more arrowroot until you are happy.

Add the steaks back to the skillet and allow to simmer in the sauce for a few more minutes.  Serve with onions and mushrooms piled on top of the steaks.

I served this with broccoli, and it was a great meal!  If you are looking for something different to do with ground beef, try out Salisbury Steaks!  Enjoy!
