Gluten Free Salisbury Steak

I have been wanting salisbury steak for some reason lately.  So I looked it up and sure enough...GLUTEN was present in the recipe.  So I decided to take the recipe, modify it, and make my own fabulous salisbury steak!  It was delicious!!  Here is the recipe for those interested.

First I have to take you to a separate recipe as a base.  Us gluten free folks cannot use condensed cream of whatever soups.  So a wonderful friend of mine shared this recipe, click here,  with me to make cream of chicken base soup (S.O.S).  ( I use this for any recipe that calls for any kind of cream of soup)

So now here is my recipe for GF Salisbury Steak

"Condensed" French onion soup
1 can equivalent of S.O.S
1 packet Simply Organic Gluten free brown gravy packet
1 tlbs brown sugar
2/3 cup Gluten free beef broth
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp gluten free soy sauce

2 lbs grass fed ground beef
1/2 dry gluten free bread crumbs
1 egg ( I use egg replacer, because we are also egg free)
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tbls tapioca flour
1/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1 tbls worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp mustard


1. In a large bowl, misx together 1/3 cup of the french onion soup with ground beef, bread crumbs, egg reaplacer, salt, and black pepper.  Shape into oval patties.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown both sides of patties.  Pour off excess fat.  (With grass fed beef, we had no excess fat in the pan at all)

3. In a small bowl, blend tapioca flour and remaining soup until smooth.  Mix in Ketchup, water, worcestershire sauce and mustard.  Place all patties in a greased 9X13 baking pan and pour this sauce of it.  Bake at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly. I then turned by oven up to 425 and baked for an additional 10 minutes to add some caramelizing edges.

This was awesome!!  I didn't have any potatoes on hand, but I reccomend making mashed potatoes and using the gravy for the mashed potatoes.  I would also suggest adding mushrooms to the sauce.  That just sounds very yummy to me!

I hope you enjoy!  We certainly did.  My two very picky children ages 2 and 1 loved it! And we can barely get them to eat meat of any kind!
