0

11 posts in this topic

I am brand new to celiacs and looking for a good pot roast recipe for the crock pot! I just saw the post on here about lipton onion mix not being gluten free which totally bums me out because that is what I typically use! And beer..but I know that is out now. I am looking for recipes! The grocery stores here carry some gluten free specialty items but not too many. Thanks!

Hi hs. and welcome to the forum.

I don't know if this is the best slow cooker recipe, but I generally brown my roast (easiest to brown on the grill), but you can use a cast iron pan or non-stick pan. Meantime I chop an onion, peel and slice 4-5 carrots. You can add chopped celery too. I like to saute the veggies before sticking them in the crock pot, but I don't think it's necessary. I cut up (unpeeled potatoes, throw them in the pot, along with the veggies I sauteed. Add a tablespoon or two of tomato paste and about 1/2 cup of water. Add salt and pepper. If you're used to Liptons, and more salt than you expect is correct. The potatos and veggies should be on the bottom of the crockpot, stick the roast on top, and let that pot do it's thing.

Lipton Onion Mix is the ONLY Lipton Dry Mix that IS gluten free. I use it all the time. :D

From another post: (of mine)

Officially just in from Unilever via a wonderful company representative!

There has been NO formulation change regarding Lipton Onion Dry Soup Mix. Through Unilever policy of full disclosure, they have recently decided to include to source of the autolyzed yeast extract, as barley.

The trace barley in the finished product is 0.09 part per million in the Onion Soup, and 0.04 parts per million in the Vegetable Soup. Both are far below the standard (20ppm) of what is considered a safe level for a person with Celiac to consume.

Enjoy! :D

I have two for you.

One is to put your roast in the crockpot with your veggies. Pour an entire bottle of Italian Dressing over it (gluten-free of course). Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

This one is called 3 packet pot roast. Disclaimer: Stolen off the crockpot gluten-free site. I did make this but it was really spicy due to the Peppercorn. My husband loved it but my kids couldn't handle the "burn". So, I would drastically reduce the peppercorn (maybe 1/4 a packet) if I used it at all again.

-packet of dry ranch dressing mix

--packet of dry Italian dressing mix

--McCormick Grill Mates Peppercorn & Garlic (the original recipe called for a packet of beef gravy or au jus, but all of the gravies and jus packets contain wheat starch. Please read labels carefully a few times if you are avoiding gluten.)

--3 lb chuck roast

--1 to 3 cups of water

The Directions.

I used my 6 quart Smart Set crockpot for this dinner.

I opted to not throw any vegetables into the crock because we had leftovers I needed to use. Feel free to throw in some chopped potatoes, an onion, carrots, and celery.

Trim the roast of any visible fat and place it into the crockpot. In a small bowl, combine the contents of the 3 packets. Pour on top of the meat. Flip the meat over a few times to get it covered with seasoning on all sides.

Add 1 cup of water.

Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4-5. The meat will be more tender if you cook it low and slow.

20-30 minutes before eating, add 2 more cups of warm water to the crockpot, and flip to high.

The meat only needs 1 cup of water on it to cook properly, but the spices are too concentrated to only have 1 cup of water in the pot when it's time to eat. Waiting to add the water until the end will help the meat retain it's shape, and the added water will make a nice juicy gravy.

I no longer cook pot roasts....one of my favorite meals.....if you are lucky to live in an area where there is a Costco store, check it out for a pre-cooked pot roast in the refrigerated section....open shelves, not the large freezer cases. It is soy,gluten,dairy free, and the best pot roast my husband and I have ever eaten. I will be shopping for one on Monday, and hope they still stock it.

You can use Redbridge beer in recipes, or one of the other gluten-free ones.

My pot roast:

I don't like adding a bunch of liquid so I choose a crockpot where the meat fits snugly. I usually use my 3-quart crockpot because I try to get a smallish chuck roast. Brown the meat in a skillet if you have time. Put the roast in the crockpot and pour in a little red wine so it comes to the top of the roast. If the roast fits snugly in the crockpot this will not be more than 1/2 cup. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle on 1/2t dried savory and two cloves of minced garlic. On top of that, layer a package of sliced mushrooms and a small sliced onion. They will be high and dry but don't worry - the onions and mushrooms will eventually cook down onto the roast and flavor it. Turn on the crockpot, 4-5h on high or 8h on low. If you want to thicken the juices, stir in a tsp of arrowroot starch dissolved in a little cold water an hour before serving. Enjoy!

Yes, crockpot and slow cooker are the same as far as I know. I think Crock-Pot is Rival's trademark.

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
