Gluten, Wheat and Dairy Free Crispy Szechuan Chilli Beef

image

This is wheat free, gluten free, barley free, dairy free, crustacean free… but certainly not taste free. I’m addicted and you will be too.

Ingredients:

Meat:
500g beef cut into thin strips,
3 tbsp cornflour,
1 tbsp gluten free Worcester sauce,
1 tbsp white wine,
3 tbsp rice bran oil.

Sauce:
4 tbsp gluten free Worcester sauce,
1 tbsp siracha sauce,
1 tsp  crushed red chillies,
2 cloves of garlic, crushed,
2 tbsp honey
1 inch squared ginger, crushed,
1 tbsp mirin,
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar.

Veggies:
3 spring onions shredded,
2 carrots shredded.

Instructions:

1. In a large bowl combine the cornflour, vinegar and Worcester sauce.

2. Mix with the back of a fork until crumbly.

3. Add the beef to the mixture and combine until the beef is thoroughly coated in a gooey coating.

4. In a wok heat the rice bran oil.

5. Add the coated beef to the wok slowly. Turn every minute until crispy.

6. Place 2 sheets of kitchen roll on a plate. Place beef on the kitchen roll – this will soak up excess oil.

7. In the wok add the veggies and combined sauce. Stir until the vegetables become soft.

8. Add the beef and stir until sauce thickens and coats the beef.

9. Serve with rice.

Gluten Free Green Thai Curry Soup

image

This comforting bowl of spicy cuddles is perfect for the cold and wet winter we are in just now. Here’s my secret recipe.

Ingredients

2 white onions (diced)
3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
1 inch squared of ginger (finely chopped)
100g of spring greens or pak choi (cut into strips)
1 red chilli (sliced into rings)
2 tbsp miso paste (check brand is gluten free)
2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp rice vinegar
4 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp tamari sauce (gluten free soy sauce)
Vegetables and meat of your choice – I used chicken, peas, sweetcorn, green beans, sugar snap peas, carrot cubes and mushrooms.
Rice or rice noodles to serve if desired.

Method

1. Heat wok with a small amount of water (100mls approx). No l is used in this recipe as it gives the final dish a less appealing appearance.

2. Once the wok is heated and the water is beginning to bubble add everything except the meat and vegetables.

3. Allow sauce to reduce and combine

4. Add meat. Ensure every surface is sealed.

5. Add vegetables.

6. Add ½ pint of water per person.

7. Allow to boil until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

8. At this point it is your choice of accompaniment. Add rice noodles directly to the broth, ladle over rice in a bowl or simple have on its own.

9. Enjoy.

The Ultimate Homemade Gluten Free Spicy Beef Burgers Recipe

These burgers are AMAZING. It’s my better half’s recipe and he is a creative genius when it comes to meat. Here is the recipe!

Ingredients

400g of chorizo chopped finely – be sure to choose gluten free!

A couple of thin slices of chorizo as garnish

1 finely diced onion

9 hot chillies

800g lean beef mince

2 tsp paprika

1 egg

2 Juvela white rolls to serve

Salad to serve

“very lazy” red onion marmalade – it is made coeliac friendly!

Method

1. Smoosh (technical term meaning use your hands) the mince, onion, chillies, paprika and egg together.

2, Form reasonable sized pate’s.

3, Fry in olive oil till cooked through.

4, Serve in the Juvela white rolls with the chorizo slices, salad, red onion relish and whatever else you fancy – the ones above had melted goats cheese on them!

The Juvela rolls are the best gluten free buns I have had in a while – very bread like, which is suprising as I adore bread and had yet to find a roll that wasn’t tastless or just plain un-roll like. I highly recommend Juvela rolls for your summer BBQ.

Coconut Flour Pancakes Recipe Attempt – Fail :(

Pancakes. Homemade nommy pancakes. I miss them.

Solution! To google!

I googled coconut flour pancakes and followed me this recipe.

I had all the ingredients and I am not being big headed when I say I’m a good cook. Most of the time it’s more a slight adjustment on personal taste if a recipe goes wrong. Not a full blown disaster like this one. It was no where near the consistency required to make the pancake shape and the mix had the texture of semolina.

Experiment outcome: Fail.
Hypothesis: Need to find something to mimic the binding properties of gluten.

Back to the drawing board for pancakes I think.
