Salisbury Steak

I love salisbury steak. It’s so old school and reminds me of cheap, yet delicious, diner meals or tv dinners. Walking through the grocery store, I noticed some nice plump white mushrooms and decided to whip up a batch. Of course I wanted to give mine a low carb aspect, so added just a splash of cream and some arrowroot to thicken the sauce. It still made a wonderful dark rich gravy and the mushrooms add a wonderful flavour punch. 

Note to not add salt until the end, let the stock do it its thing first and give it a final seasoning before serving.
