Budget Friendly Gluten-Free Salisbury Steak
When you’re on a tight budget, and steak is not on the menu, try Salisbury steak. It might be a welcome change from using ground beef for burgers or meatloaf.
Ground beef is usually preferred by children who don’t like cutting and chewing steak, but with “steak” in the title you can easily convince them they are getting a fancy meal.
This recipe uses cream of mushroom soup. The kind you buy at the store usually contains wheat, and those that don’t are not thick enough. The recipe I link to is quick and easy to make.
- 1 recipe cream of mushroom soup
- 2 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce (more information here)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup dry gluten-free bread crumbs or instant potato flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- several dashes of pepper
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- cooking oil
- about 6 medium size mushrooms
- Combine the soup and soy sauce.
- In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup of the soup.
- Mix in the ground beef.
- Form six oval patties and brown them in a little bit of hot cooking oil.
- Add 1/2 cup water to the remaining soup using a whisk to remove lumps. Pour it over the patties.
- Cover and cook 10 – 15 minutes.
- Slice the mushrooms and sauté them in a small skillet. Then place them on top of the patties.
