In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from Valerie Wells.
Load the following into a slow cooker in the following order:
1 pound beef cut in strips (or beef for stir fry)
1 tablespoon tapioca pearls (Bascoms small pearl is what I use)
½ cup water
2 to 3 tablespoons Tamari gluten-free soy sauce [I use San J Wheat-Free brand]
1 large white onion sliced
1 green bell pepper sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced
1 yellow or orange bell pepper sliced
Cook on low 8 hours or high for 4 hours. Serve over hot rice or brown rice pasta. [My mom used to make something similar to this. She added whole mushrooms. It was wonderful!]
