Steak Patties

  • 1 lb Australian Grassfed beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup almond flour, can sub 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Mushroom Gravy

  • 2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms, white or Baby Bella
  • 2 tbsp ghee, or vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 3/4 cups beef broth
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley, for garnish, if desired


  1. Combine all of the steak patty ingredients in a bowl and mix well using your hands. You want it to be mixed pretty thoroughly so the patties hold together. Form the mixture in 5 equal oval-shaped patties, about 3/4 inch thick.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron pan over medium high heat. Add the patties and cook them for 1-2 minutes each side, until they are nicely browned. Set the patties aside on a plate.

  3. In the same pan, add the garlic, onions, and mushrooms. Sauté them for 5 minutes until the onions are softened and the mushrooms are beginning to brown.

  4. Turn the heat to medium. Add in the ghee, followed by the tapioca flour. Whisk the flour well until it is completely combined with the butter and any lumps are gone.

  5. Slowly pour in the beef broth while whisking. Add in the dijon mustard and coconut aminos. Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the beef patties back into the pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes, whisking the liquid around the patties occasionally. The gravy should thicken.

  6. If you want the gravy to be thicker, add in 1 tbsp arrowroot or tapioca starch mixed with 3 tbsp water. Let it bubble while stirring.

  7. Serve the patties topped with the mushroom gravy and fresh parsley. This meal is delicious served with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
