Keto Salisbury Steak and Gravy are such a tasty, budget-friendly, low carb, gluten-free, comfort food meal.
Savory seasoned ground beef patties smothered in rich mushroom gravy, this old fashioned low carb meal will be sure to bring back childhood memories.
Growing up in the ’70s, I have been served my fair share of the awful frozen TV dinners. All of which were terrible except for the Salisbury steak and gravy variety.
Don’t get me wrong they were unhealthy for sure and filled with sodium and God only knows what else, but that one did actually taste pretty good.
I decided to bring back those simpler times and make a healthier, non-frozen, keto, low carb version.
This low carb entree would be excellent paired with low carb cauliflower mash or even a side salad.
