What You Need to Make Keto Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

Also known as a version of keto hamburger steak, this tasty recipe is a quick fix that’s ready in a jiffy. And, you don’t need any weird ingredients! I do thicken the sauce with a bit of xanthan gum, but read my notes on this super-powered thickener before using it, if you’re new to it.

  • Digital meat thermometer
  • Ground beef – 80/20 is fine for this recipe
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Onion
  • Egg
  • Dijon mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Garlic powder
  • Butter
  • Mushrooms
  • Tomato paste
  • Beef broth – use low or no sodium beef broth or stock

How To Make This Keto Hamburger Recipe

  1. Mix the ground beef with heavy whipping cream, finely chopped or grated onion, egg, some of the Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder.
  2. Form the meat into patties and pan fry them 2-3 minutes per side until they’re caramelized. They’ll finish cooking in the sauce. When browned, remove the patties to a plate.
  3. Then, add the butter to the skillet and add the mushrooms. Sautee the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes or until they are soft and have given off their liquid.
  4. Deglaze the skillet with 1/2 cup of the beef broth, scraping up all the yummy bits from the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add the browned beef patties, tomato paste, and remainder of the broth to the skillet and simmer on low, covered, for about 10 minutes or until the beef is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165-F.
  6. Remove the patties from the pan and set them on a clean plate.
  7. Thicken with 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum (see notes below).
  8. Top the patties with the mushrooms and gravy and enjoy!

Xanthan Gum, A Keto Thickener

Xanthan gum is a natural but processed thickener that’s been widely used in foods for years. However, it’s a powerful thickener and you can go from unthickened to a slimy science experiment in no time.

Xanthan gum doesn’t thicken immediately, nor does it need to be heated (like flour or cornstarch) to activate its thickening powers. And, a little goes a LONG way.

Always follow the recipe recommendations, or start small, with 1/2 teaspoon (yes 1/2 a TEASPOON) of xanthan gum per 2 cups of liquid.

Whisk it in and let it rest for 3-4 minutes. It’ll start to thicken! Resist the urge to add more!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Don’t use super-lean ground beef for this recipe as it could end up too dry.
  • Use a meat thermometer to avoid over-cooking the beef. Pull the keto beef patties out when they hit 165-F.
  • Don’t like xanthan gum? Thicken the mixture with your favorite thickener.
  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce to add a bit of heat.
  • Switch up the mushrooms – white mushrooms, cremini, and portobellos (with the black gills removed) will all work in this recipe.

What To Serve With Keto Salisbury Steak

Creamy Mashed Cauliflower is a must with this recipe, or you can use your favorite Cauliflower Rice as a tasty side. You need something to soak up all that delicious keto mushroom sauce! Pair your meal with a bright, green veggie to make your plate pretty, and dig in!

Is Keto Salisbury Steak Freezer Friendly?

You bet! You can freeze this low-carb Salisbury Steak for up to three months. Simply chill it thoroughly and then package it in an air-tight container.

To reheat it, thaw it in the fridge overnight and warm it in a low oven (about 325-F) covered, until heated through. You can microwave it, just be careful not to overcook it.
