The rest of the preparation and ingredients for this keto ground beef recipe is similar to meatloaf.

What Type Of Gravy Do You Use For Homemade Salisbury Steaks 

For this recipe, we use traditional beef mushroom gravy. The combination stays true to the classic homemade salisbury steaks recipe.  The flavors work really nicely with the beef, and was hearty while still fitting the low carb lifestyle. The gravy is what we call a "pan gravy"  A pan gravy is one made in the same skillet as the meat was cooked. It gives all the flavor from cooking and little bits of seasonings, etc. right into the gravy.
