Ground Sirloin and Mushroom Gravy
Our meat dock sale featured ground sirloin patties this month. Hubby picked up a package, so I cooked some up today. These are huge patties--8 ounces. That's a man sized meal. My 16 year old couldn't even finish his. The meat was nice and lean. I simply let the patties bake in the oven while I prepared a low carb mushroom gravy. yum.
Low Carb Mushroom Gravy
8 ounces mushrooms
2 Tablespoons beef drippings
1 cup beef broth
2 Tablespoons dried minced onions
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 Tablespoon cooking sherry
2 Tablespoons sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Slice and saute the mushrooms in the fat. Combine the broth, onions and xanthan gum. Blend it in a bullet blender until well combined. Pour this mixture over the cooked mushrooms. Stir in cooking sherry and sour cream until heated through. Season to taste and serve over meat.
That was a meal that felt like on old fashioned Sunday dinner, Diner style.
