Ddraig, You might want to ring the venue in advance and check. In my part of the world a homemade hamburger would still typically contain breadcrumbs used as a binder. Even if it didn't, they may well have used a commercial herb mix with additives, or their special secret flavouring may be a bit of soy sauce, or it arrives topped with their house special - beer fried onions.
I can't do gluten, so in your situation I would either pay for the steak myself or take a meal with me. Steak and salad (no dressing, no marinade, no sauce, no chips) is the only thing I will eat prepared by others. Turning up with a meal in a container only feels awkward the first time, I do it regularly and you just to use a bit of chutzpah. Remember, it is your company that people want. The other trick is letting the host know, and turning up after the main meal has been eaten, so you can eat at home beforehand.
If I crave salt and I'm not eating something I can salt I just put some large crystal salt in a tiny dish and eat it one granule at a time until I've had enough.
To the person who needed a recipe for stevia-free fat bombs..
1 stick butter
1 cup coconut oil
1 cup almond butter
8 or 10 oz unsweetened, 100% chocolate bar (I use one by Pralus).
Melt it all together, pour into muffin cups and freeze.
I love them!

cream cheese with cinnamon, yum reminds me of cheese cake. I use goat cream cheese.
I make the cream cheese clouds and add cinnamon and cloves - yummers! Just go really light on the cloves cuz they can really carry a punch! If you really whip them up a lot they get sorta airy --- so you can eat even MORE for the same calories. bonus!
