Nope, that\u2019s not very good \u2013 tasting or for you healthwise. The flavors of store-bought cannot be compared to those of homemade Salisbury steak.\r\n\r\nSo making Salisbury steak at home is the answer!\r\n\r\nHowever, most Salisbury steak recipes are not very healthy. They require butter and breadcrumbs and canned gravy. Darn it.\r\n\r\nFortunately, there is a way to enjoy Salisbury steak without jeopardizing your clean diet.\u00a0How?\u00a0 By making healthy Salisbury steak with fresh and whole ingredients.\r\n\r\nI\u2019ll teach you how to make a Salisbury steak recipe from scratch and I can guarantee it'll be a big hit in your house.\u00a0 It\u2019s so good and satisfying and comforting that you won\u2019t believe it\u2019s actually healthy.

Am I right?\u00a0 All hail the meal prep!\r\n\r\n\r\nWHAT IS SALISBURY STEAK?\r\nOkay, so I'm guessing some of you might be thinking, "What the heck is Salisbury steak, anyway?"\u00a0 Well, Salisbury steak is an American classic that has been around for a while. Salisbury steak consists of beef patties served with gravy and paired with something like mashed potatoes or noodles.\u00a0 Think of it like meatloaf and a burger patty had a baby, then got served with mashed potatoes and brown, heavy gravy.\u00a0 I.e. comfort food at its best, am I right?\r\n\r\nThat being said, Salisbury steak is similar to both meatloaf and hamburger steak, but not identical. It somehow resembles a mix of them. And the gravy is a rich and delicious beef gravy that adds extra flavors to the steak.\r\n\r\nI love my Salisbury steak with mushroom gravy for extra flavor. \u00a0YUMMY.\r\n\r\n\r\nHOW TO MAKE THIS SALISBURY STEAK RECIPE\r\nIt\u2019s time to talk about how to make this Salisbury steak recipe because I\u2019m pretty sure you can\u2019t wait to make this for dinner.\r\n\r\nTo make this simple Salisbury steak\u2026\r\n\r\n \tStart by making the beef patties. I like to use organic, grass-fed ground beef to not make the patties and I look for 85% or less fat so it's not overly greasy. Mix in the spices to give the beef extra-good flavor.\r\n \tCook the patties in the skillet until they are golden brown all over.\r\n \tMake the gravy using healthy garbanzo bean flour and low sodium beef broth.\r\n \tCombine the mushroom gravy with the beef patties and simmer for a few minutes to infuse the taste of the gravy into the steaks.\r\n\r\nThat is it, peeps. Super easy but amazingly flavored Salisbury steak.\r\n\r\n\r\nHEALTHY SUBSTITUTES FOR EASY MEAL PREP SALISBURY STEAK\r\nTo make healthy Salisbury steak, we can do a few easy alterations to this American classic.\u00a0 For example, we can:\r\n\r\n \tLightly fry the patties in olive oil instead of an unhealthy oil\r\n \tWhen making the patties, we skip the breadcrumbs\r\n \tStay the heck away from canned or pre-made gravy and make your very own delicious gravy at home using real ingredients\r\n \tReplace butter with olive oil\r\n \tUse low sodium beef stock for the gravy instead of regular beef broth\r\n \tUse garbanzo beef flour instead of all-purpose flour for a high protein, high fiber, and unrefined thickener for the gravy\r\n \tUse alternatives for healthy lean ground beef, like ground chicken or ground turkey, with spinach added in for a change in flavor\r\n\r\n\r\nEASY MEAL PREP SALISBURY STEAK GRAVY\r\nMy homemade Salisbury steak recipe is not complete without the Salisbury steak gravy. And I think you\u2019ll be happy to know that making Salisbury steak gravy is like a walk in the park.\r\n\r\nTo make Salisbury steak gravy:\r\n\r\n \tHeat oil in a large skillet.\r\n \tSaut\u00e9 the mushrooms in the skillet until golden.\r\n \tAdd garbanzo bean flour and cook stirring constantly. I use garbanzo bean flour (AKA chickpea flour) because it\u2019s healthier and better for you than all-purpose flour.\r\n \tAdd low sodium beef broth and mix everything together making sure the gravy is lump-free.\r\n \tAdd the steak patties and cook for a few more minutes.\r\n\r\nYour rich and creamy Salisbury steak gravy is now done, so it\u2019s time to think about what to serve with Salisbury steak.\r\n\r\n\r\nCAN YOU MAKE SALISBURY STEAK VEGAN AND GLUTEN-FREE?\r\nSalisbury steak can definitely be made into an awesome vegan meal. Make the patties out of lentils instead of lean ground beef and use vegetable broth in place of the low sodium beef broth.\u00a0\r\n\r\nTo make the meal gluten-free, be sure to use gluten-free beef broth and flour. Suitable flours are:\r\n\r\n \tGarbanzo bean (chickpea) flour like I used\r\n \t\u00a0Amaranth flour\r\n \tBrown rice flour\r\n \tBuckwheat flour\r\n \tCassava flour\r\n \tCoconut flour\r\n \tOat flour\r\n\r\n\r\nWHAT TO SERVE WITH SALISBURY STEAK\r\nLooking for what to serve with Salisbury steak?\u00a0 You have a few options. The most popular options are:\r\n\r\n \tmashed potatoes\r\n \trice\r\n \tnoodles\r\n\r\nBut these options are not usually very healthy. If you want healthier options or low carb options, you can pair Salisbury steak with:\r\n\r\n \tpotatoes and peas (like in this recipe)\r\n \troasted broccoli\r\n \tcauliflower mashed potatoes\r\n \troasted veggies\r\n\r\nI like my Salisbury steak with peas and potatoes, but I have to admit that all the other options are just as amazing. And they all go well with Salisbury steak.\r\n\r\n\r\nHOW TO STORE MEAL PREP SALISBURY STEAK\r\nI like to put my Salisbury steak into my meal prep dishes as soon as I make it. Then, it is ready to go for a quick and easy meal that is super nutritious, and satisfying, too. So, make sure that your meal prep containers are airtight. Stackable containers are a good option, saving you room in the fridge. Use the Salisbury steaks in 4 days max.\r\nCAN YOU FREEZE SALISBURY STEAK?\r\nYes, you can freeze Salisbury steak. I keep it in the freezer, stored in my meal prep dishes, for up to 3 months. I take them out of the freezer the night before, and let them thaw in the fridge overnight. They are easily warmed up in the microwave once thawed. Alternatively, you can freeze in freezer-to-oven containers and reheat it in the oven once thawed. Easy peasy and good-for-you delicious!\r\n\r\nREHEATING SALISBURY STEAK\r\nI personally prefer reheating the Salisbury steak in the microwave because I like my meal prep to be ready quickly BUT you can also reheat it in a covered dish.\u00a0 Trust me, you're gonna be excited to eat the delicious Salisbury steak with mushroom gravy as fast as possible for lunch or dinner.\r\n\r\nTo reheat the homemade Salisbury steak in the oven you need:\r\n\r\n \tAn oven-safe dish\r\n \tAluminum foil\r\n\r\nTo reheat:\r\n\r\n \tPlace the Salisbury steak in the oven-safe dish and cover the steak with gravy\r\n \tCover the dish with aluminum foil\r\n \tReheat the steak in the oven at 325 degrees F until heated through; it should take approximately 30 minutes\r\n\r\nYou can also reheat the Salisbury steak in the microwave. To do it:\r\n\r\n \tPlace the steak and the gravy on a plate\r\n \tCover the plate with a paper towel to avoid mess\r\n \tMicrowave for 2-3 minutes, until heated through\r\n\r\nAnd that, right there, is why the microwave works best for me.\r\n\r\nMORE HEALTHY MEAL PREP RECIPES\r\nMeal prep is the ideal way to keep dinner nutritious.

Not only does this healthy version satisfy the love of rich gravy and a flavorful dish, but it also fits into your clean-eating lifestyle!\t\n\t\n\t\tFor the Healthy Salisbury Steak:1 1\/2 lbs. lean ground beef1\/2 cup yellow onion, (finely diced)3 cloves garlic, (minced)1\/2 tsp. ground black pepper1\/2 tsp. sea salt1 tbsp. olive oil1 lb cremini mushrooms, (quartered (approx. 15 mushrooms))3 tbsp. garbanzo bean flour1 3\/4 cups low sodium beef broth11\/2 tsp. red wine vinegarFor the Mashed Red Potatoes:1 lb. red potatoes, (diced (approx. 1 lb))1\/2 tsp. sea salt1\/4 tsp. ground black pepper2-4 tbsp. low sodium beef broth, (as needed, to thin)For the Saut\u00e9ed Peas:1 tsp. olive oil3 tbsp. yellow onion, (minced)4 cups peas ((fresh or frozen))1\/4 sea salt1\/4 tsp. ground black pepper\t\n\t\n\t\tFill a large stock pot part way with water, and then bring to a boil over high heat.Add washed red potatoes in a steamer basket, and steam for about 15 minutes, or until they are fork tender. Then, remove from the heat. (If you don\u2019t have a steamer basket, you could also add the potatoes to the water and just boil them - they lose a little bit of nutritional value to the water that way, but it\u2019s another way to cook potatoes for sure.)Place the cooked potatoes into a large mixing bowl and add sea salt and black pepper. Using a fork or a potato masher, mash everything together until it\u2019s mostly smooth.\u00a0\u00a0If you find the potatoes are just a little dry, you can add in some low sodium beef broth and then re-mix until you reach your desired consistency.\u00a0 Set aside.In a separate large mixing bowl, add the ground beef, finely diced yellow onion, sea salt, black pepper, and garlic, and mix together very well.Using your hands, divide the beef mixture into 6 and then shape into 6 even patties, just like you would a burger patty.Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until well-browned on each side, about 4-6 minutes per side, until cooked through. Then, remove and set aside.In the same pan, add the quartered mushrooms, and cook them until they start to cook down and become golden, about 4-6 minutes.Now, sprinkle with garbanzo bean flour and then stir to incorporate until the flour disappears. The garbanzo bean flour will make the mixture start to thicken.Add the beef broth and red wine vinegar to the mushrooms and stir to incorporate. Then, bring to a boil, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until thickened and looking like a luscious mushroom gravy.Return the cooked patties to the mushroom gravy and cook for 3-4 more minutes to heat through. Remove from the heat and set aside.To prepare the peas, heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet.Add minced yellow onion and cook until tender, about 4-5 minutes.\u00a0\u00a0Add the peas (which can either be fresh or frozen), some sea salt, and black pepper. Then, cook for 4-6 minutes, until the peas are heated through. Remove from the heat to cool a bit.Start by dividing the mashed potatoes evenly into the meal prep containers - it\u2019ll be approximately 1\/2 cup portions per meal. Next, add the saut\u00e9ed peas to the other side of the container, which also happens to be about 1\/2 cup portion. Add a salisbury steak patty on top, laying against the mashed potatoes, and then top with our dreamy, thick, and actually good for you mushroom gravy.\t\n\t\n\t\tThis meal makes a great lunch or dinner and is so filling and delicious, thanks to mushroom gravy using garbanzo bean flour. When you\u2019re ready to eat your meal, just remove the lid and reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through, and you\u2019re good to go.\n\t\n\n\r\nThis post contains affiliate links for products I use regularly and highly recommend.
