I made the most delicious, gluten-free beef rump roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!
When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.
A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.
Here’s an old favorite that’s already easy to make, made a little faster. The smaller individual-size loaves cook faster.
Because they’re smaller, they’re also quick to freeze. They thaw quickly for a meal later, so I often double the recipe and make extra.
When I was converting this recipe to be gluten-free, I discovered several different possibilities…
Are you ready for a great cookout this weekend? I look forward to a gluten-free hamburger with all the trimmings throughout the year, but I enjoy them even more when we can grill them outside.
Gluten-free hamburgers are just as easy as any other kind, as long as the grill is clean when you start.
One of the best things about hamburgers is that each person can choose what they want or don’t want on their own.
Gluten-free and Gluten-y family members alike will all absolutely love this beef round steak with vegetables from the crock pot recipe.
It’s a classic stick-to-the-ribs family-style meal that is every bit as good as your favorite stew… And, you can thicken the delicious broth that you’ll get after simmering for several hours in your slow cooker into a silky-smooth gravy that will make the meal even better.
This meal only takes 20-minutes or so to put together and then can simmer for as long as necessary… Whatever that means in your world. It’s a low preparation-time recipe that you and your whole family are sure to enjoy.
I usually use my own preference for the proportion of pasta to vegetables in this dish. Try it and decide what works best for you. I often cook more veggies than the recipe calls for. And, I’ll keep them in a separate dish so that I can add more of them to my plate if the mood strikes me.
Depending on how many carbs I’ve already had that day, I may skip the pasta entirely and just have my sauce with the veggies… I really like just the veggies in sauce sometimes.
This is one of my family’s favorite gluten-free ground beef recipes. The gluten-free sauce combined with the ground beef seasoned perfectly to your taste can be a marvelous addition to your meal time.
