Salisbury Steak Meatballs

May 14, 2018Teresa

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. 🙂

SALISBURY STEAK GRAVY:
Salisbury Steak Meatballs | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | these sumptuous #meatballs were a big hit with our company. Serve over #rice or #noodles. #glutenfree #salisburysteak #beef
Instructions
MEATBALLS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Combine ingredients.
  3. Form into meatballs the size of golf balls.
  4. Place meatballs on parchment paper-lined cookie sheets (or spray with avocado oil cooking spray).
  5. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until done.
  6. Remove from oven.
  7. Add to Dutch oven with Salisbury Steak Gravy.
  8. Serve over mashed potatoes, cooked noodles or rice, as desired.
SALISBURY STEAK GRAVY:
  1. Heat a Dutch oven with ¼ cup butter or oil to skillet to medium heat.
  2. Add onions and cook about 8-10 minutes until they brown slightly but not caramelize.
  3. Add garlic, leeks and mushrooms and sauté an additional 5-10 minutes until softened.
  4. Stir in flour, Worcestershire sauce, Kitchen Bouquet Seasoning, Montreal Steak Seasoning and salt and pepper.
  5. Begin adding beef stock slowly until worked into the gravy.
  6. Continue cooking a few minutes until gravy thickens.
  7. Add cooked meatballs and heat through.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving over mashed potatoes, cooked noodles or rice.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: I actually used 38 ounces of beef broth as I was trying to get rid of some from another carton in my refrigerator. But I recommend between 24-32 ounces so the gravy will be thicker. I have also made this with about 42 ounces of beef broth.

NOTE: The combined cook time is about an hour. Since the meatballs and sauce are cooking simultaneously, the length of time is closer to 30 minutes - the time required to cook the meatballs.

NOTE: I included a range of seasoning for those who don't care as much for a slight kick in their foods. I used the larger amounts of pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and Montreal Steak Seasoning in the meatballs.

NOTE: My personal preference for gluten free noodles is Ronzoni.

NOTE: If you don't require a gluten free meal, this recipe works perfectly with regular Italian style bread crumbs and flour as well.
