I happened to have stumbled across this recipe the other day and modified it slightly due to my corn allergy.  I still have not found a substitute for soy sauce so it was not totally corn free (sadly) so the allergy pills still had to be taken each time I ate it.  I decided to make just enough rice per each meal so that the rice was hot and fresh each time that we ate.  We had several meals from this dish and I took the left over gravy and froze it to use as a base for the next time that I make the dish.

Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli

10300079_10204015023721400_6278386827162361306_n

Ingredients:
1 pound boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
1 cup beef or chicken consumme or broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil (I put in 2 tbsp)
3 garlic cloves, minced (I put in 3 heaping tbsp minced garlic in olive oil)
2 tablespoons cornstarch (I used potato starch in its place)
2 tablespoons sauce from the crock pot after being cooked
Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired) I used frozen
Hot cooked rice

Directions:
1. Place beef in a crock pot.
2. In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour over beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
3. In a cup, stir cornstarch and sauce form the crock pot until smooth. Add to crock pot. Stir well to combine.
4. Add broccoli to the crock pot. Stir to combine.
5. Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes on high (the sauce has to boil for it to thicken).
6. Serve over hot cooked rice.

Gluten Free does not mean Corn Free :(


I was in a rush when shopping and was so excited to see the new stack of boxes in the Gluten Free Isle…I grabbed without reading.  I also baked without reading.  Luckily I had hungry mouths who were extra in the house… and I sent the balance home with them…

They may have been gluten free but the corn starch was right there …

so easy to use potato starch… ugh…brownies dancing before me that I can’t taste…

Such a sad time for me cause I could just taste them as the aroma of them baking was filling the house… such a tease…

At least the cake mix is an ok item… lesson learned…

Namaste
