The plus side of this recipe is that it is fairly low carb. Therefore, if you are watching your diet you can serve my Salisbury Steak over riced cauliflower to make a delicious meal. Or try riced broccoli or zucchini noodles!

    Adding this to our meal plan this week! That sauce looks amazing and since I have ground turkey right now I’ll be trying that version first!
