Paleo Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

This is basically my old Salisbury Steak recipe minus the sugars and condiments like Worcestershire and Soy Sauce that I would have normally used, but are a Paleo NoNo. Soy is a Legume which is a Paleo NoNo and Worcestershire has sugar so that rules that out.  I am not so sure how the Paleo world would look upon me using powdered Garlic and Onion but I feel that it adds a tremendous amount of flavor when combined with fresh. It is amazing how good the flavor was in this dish.

Initially I tried to thicken the gravy up with Coconut Flour.  Although it was thickened slightly, it acted like sludge at the bottom of the pan.  The sludge did not affect the flavor, but the look was unappealing.  My husband suggested I try Gum but what I ended up doing is boiling the sauce down to a glaze and it slightly thickens and dramatically enhances the flavor.
