Dairy Free & Gluten Free Salisbury Steak

Comfort food... You know they kind you grew up with.  Those stick to your ribs kind of hearty meals that Mom used to make or that *shudder* came in a frozen dinner.  As we all know most of those old school comfort foods were loaded with dairy and gluten as well as to be completely honest lacking in the flavor department.  Well this version of Salisbury Steak is all grown up in addition to being naturally dairy and gluten free!  I served the Salisbury Steaks over a bed of rice and a side of "buttered" corn.  Comfort food perfection...

Salisbury Steak

For the patties:
2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 tbs fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 eggs
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce (check that it is gluten free)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp seasoning salt (check that it is gluten free)

For the gravy:
1 tbs olive oil
1 1/2 medium onions, sliced into half-moons
8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 c fresh parsley, chopped
3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 c beef broth
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce (check that it is gluten free)
heavy pinch mustard powder
2 tbs corn starch mixed with water to form a slurry
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, combine all the patty ingredients.
Mix well to ensure that everything is evenly distributed.
Divide meat mixture into 8 even portions.
Form each portion into a flat oval shape.
In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the patties on both sides.
Once the patties are well browned but not cooked through entirely remove to a large deep covered oven proof casserole dish which will hold them in a single layer.
In the same pan that you cooked the patties in; add the olive oil and onions.
Saute the onions until lightly browned and softened.
Add the mushrooms and brown them lightly.
Add the parsley and garlic.
Saute for 1 minute before adding the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
Simmer, covered for 5 minutes.
Taste and season with the salt and pepper as desired.
Bring back to a boil then stir in the corn starch slurry.
Cook just until thickened.
Pour the gravy over the browned patties in your prepared casserole.
Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Serve over prepared rice or mashed potatoes if desired.

  4. I just made this dinner for my family. I have three children, my younger two are very picky. When they first sat down my five year old started to complain about how he didn't like it(before even taking a bite). Well after the first bite "this is really yummy". All three plates were eaten cleaned and two had seconds. THANK YOU, this is going to be a regular in our house.
