Instructions: Salisbury Steak Patties
  1. Combine ground beef, egg, onion, salt, pepper and almost flour into a medium mixing bowl - Mix well
  2. Divide into 4 equal parts and form into balls - Gently press down to create 1/2 inch thick patties
  3. Season with salt and pepper
  4. Bring large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat and drizzle with olive oil - Swirl to coat the pan
  5. Once pan is hot, add patties - Cook 4-5 minutes per side (or until cooked through)
  6. Remove patties from pan and place on a plate - Set aside (do not clean out the pan)
  7. Add mushrooms to pan and cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until cooked down - Season with salt and pepper

Instructions: Gravy
  1. Ensure pan is on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of ghee - Let melt
  2. Add tapioca flour and use a whisky to fully combine
  3. While you continue to whisk with one hand, slowly add the beef broth a little at a time (it might look lumpy at first, but just continue whisking) - If liquid starts to boil, turn down heat to keep it at a soft simmer
  4. Continue whisking until you have added all the beef broth and it starts to thicken
  5. Add salt and continue whisking - Taste and add additional salt or pepper, to taste
Finish and Serve
  • Add patties back into the gravy along with mushrooms
  • Let simmer 3-5 minutes - Whisking between the patties as necessary to prevent lumps
  • Serve immediately with mashed potatoes

Tips & Tricks

Gravy - The biggest tip for the gravy is to make sure your heat isn't too high (it shouldn't be boiling) and KEEP WHISKING! When you initially pour your beef broth into the pan it is going to look a little weird as it starts to mix with the tapioca/ghee mixture - just keep whisking away and it will combine and thicken nicely.
Storage - This makes great leftovers! Just store in an airtight container and story in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
