Gluten Free Living – 2018
Salisbury Steak Meatballs are awesome. Really. These fantastic meatballs have a great kick by adding a little Montreal Steak Seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes and pepper to the meatballs and the sauce. This savory dish is everything you could hope for in a meal. The sauce is gravy-like add includes onions, leeks and mushrooms for incredibly good flavor. I made the recipe gluten free by using gluten free bread crumbs and gluten free flour. But this recipe is easily made with regular bread crumbs and flour.
Back in April our Friday night care group hosted our church’s Young at Heart group for dinner. We provided six different kinds of meatballs. Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Pepperoni Pizza Meatballs, Swedish Meatballs, Italian Spaghetti and Meatballs, Slow Cooker Cocktail (BBQ) Meatballs and these sumptuous Salisbury Steak Meatballs. We also provided Easy Baked Rice and multiple kinds of pasta including gluten free penne.
We got all kinds of wonderful feedback about the meatballs. Almost everyone sampled one meatball of each! The one I got the most feedback about was the Salisbury Steak Meatballs. Without exception, everyone loved them! We served the meatballs over dumpling noodles (although thick extra wide Amish noodles would be even better) and rice. You could also serve these over mashed potatoes if you prefer that option.
While I’ve given a guide on how much Montreal Steak Seasoning and pepper I used to spice up these meatballs, you can always cut the amounts down if you prefer a little less heat. Or….add more if your family likes to spice things up. I actually modeled the recipe after my Smothered Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Onion Gravy. If you enjoy the savory flavors of Salisbury Steak then you’ll absolutely love this recipe too.
One of the things I really like about this recipe is the meatballs are baked rather than fried. I know that’s a personal preference issue with me. I just don’t like all the spatter and having to turn and turn and turn meatballs all the time. This is much easier and less time consuming. From beginning to end the recipe takes under an hour. Since the meatballs and sauce cook at the same time, that cuts down the time considerably.
Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just your family, this delicious Salisbury Steak Meatballs recipe should be on the menu! It’s one of those recipes you’ll never be able to get enough of once you start digging in. And, believe me, dig in, you will. 🙂
