Keto Farmer Steak w Mushrooms and Gravy

You don’t have to be a man to make yourself some man-food! This Keto breakfast is hearty and hefty. Ground beef is heavily seasoned like meatloaf and shaped into a thin steak. It’s cooked to medium doneness with a crispy outside. Served with the farmer steak is a simple bed of tender, sliced mushrooms with a thick creamy pan-gravy. This dish is low enough in carbs that you can add on an extra side if you are extra hungry. You can prepare raw farmer steaks and store them between pieces of parchment paper in your refrigerator until you’re ready to cook. Once cooked, you can also store the steak with mushrooms and gravy in a meal prep container for a hot lunch or dinner on the go.

What Is Farmer Steak?

No, you won’t find “farmer steak” on your poster of beef cuts. Farmer steak isn’t really a steak at all! What was once a cheap and easy way for blue-collar workers to get a hunky piece of meat on their plate is now an American diner staple. You’ll find farmer steak as a popular option across midwest and southern state lines. Traditionally, farmer steak is made with cubed beef. However, on the Keto diet, you can get a little more fat in your system with ground beef, which is the next best option. Choose a fat grade of ground beef at your discretion. Keep in mind that the more fat that’s in your beef, the softer and more delicate it will be to work with throughout the recipe.

  • Step 1

    Place the ground beef in a mixing bowl and break it up until it’s soft and loose with either your hand or a spatula. Combine the beef with salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, mustard powder, ground pork rinds, and mayonnaise. For the ground pork rinds, you can quickly grind them by pulsing in a food processor. Mix the beef and these ingredients until you have a consistent and somewhat smooth textured mixture. Then, pour the mixture out on a clean surface and shape it into a rough steak-shape. The steak should be only ¼-inch - ½-inch thick.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a pan over high heat. When the oil is hot, place the seasoned steak in. Let the steak cook on one side for 3-4 minutes. When the steak is charred on one side, flip it over. Cook for another 3-4 minutes or until the steak is done to your liking. In this recipe, anything less than medium doneness won’t work here. The steak cooks quickly and will reach medium quickly. Once done, transfer the steak to your serving plate to rest.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Return the used pan to the stove. Remove the stems from washed mushrooms and slice the caps thin. Melt butter in the pan over low heat on the stove. Deglaze the pan by using a spatula to scrape up any seasonings stuck in the pan. Toss in the sliced mushrooms with minced garlic and cover the pan with a lid. Cook the mushrooms down until they’re soft and have released liquid into the pan - about 5 minutes.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Stir the paleo flour into the pan. When the flour has coated the mushrooms and just starts to turn golden, pour the heavy cream into the pan. At your discretion, add a pinch of salt and pepper to the pan at your discretion. Also recommended is a pinch of onion powder. Keep the stove heat on low as the cream quickly reduces. When you have a thick gravy, pour the contents of the pan over your farmer steak and enjoy.
