    Irish-style Lamb Stew (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    This classic rich, hearty, Irish-style lamb stew is a sure-to-please favorite. I like to eat it warmed up after a night in fridge. I like to work my way through a big pot of this stew over several days, feeding whatever guests happen to roll through the door at mealtime.

    Ingredients:
    ½ pound bacon, thick-cut, diced
    2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 pounds carrots, diced
    1 ½ pounds potatoes, diced
    1 large yellow onion
    3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed and thinly sliced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 cup beef broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    ¼ teaspoon thyme
    2 Bay leaves
    ¼ cup white wine
    1 teaspoon sugar

    Directions:
    Cook bacon in a large skillet. over medium high heat until evenly brown. Do not burn bacon. Drain on paper towels, crumble, and set aside.

    Brown lamb in skillet with bacon fat. When lamb is evenly browned, transfer meat into large soup pot - leave 1/4 cup of fat in skillet.

    Add the garlic and yellow onion and saute till onion begins to become golden.

    Once onions are golden, add 1/2 cup water to deglaze skillet. 

    Add the garlic-onion-water mixture to the soup pot. Also add bacon pieces, beef stock and sugar. Simmer 1 hour on low heat.

    Add carrots, leeks, onions, potatoes, thyme, bay leaves, and wine to pot. Reduce heat, and simmer covered until vegetables are tender. About 20-30 minutes.

    May be served alone or with cooked green cabbage or sprouts. I'm also fond of serving it over rice for an extra hearty meal, or to stretch the last of the stew.

    This is AMAZING, very yummy!!!

    I just had to add a little more beef stock. This stew tasted so good it was like I was cheating. Also the apple pumpkin recipe is super delicious.

    Stir together:
    2/3 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon gluten-free dry mustard
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 small sweet onion, grated
    Add (using a mixer--NOT a blender):
    1/3 cup cider vinegar
    1 cup oil (very slowly)
    1 tablespoon celery seed (optional)
    ¼ to 1 cake gluten-free blue cheese
    Make this dressing ahead and refrigerate. Pour dressing over shredded cabbage just before serving.

    This recipe comes to us from Melonie Katz.
    (Note: this recipe would normally use 16 frozen Pepperidge Farms pastry sheets which DO CONTAIN GLUTEN, so you need to find a gluten-free alternative for this, or simply skip this step in the recipe).
    Ingredients:
    8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon pepper
    4 cups chopped fresh spinach (or 1 package frozen spinach, drained)
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 ounces cream cheese (same as ½ block)
    ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
    ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
    1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
    1 tablespoon gluten-free flour or gluten-free baking mix
    Directions:
    Beat the chicken breasts into thin cutlets and flatten. If chicken breasts are somewhat thick, use a good knife and cut the chicken breast in half, forming a pocket. Be careful not to cut the chicken breast in half. You will end up being able to open the chicken breast like opening a book... so youll end up with a very large, but thin chicken breast. Do this for each chicken breast & set aside.
    Sauté spinach & onion in oil until onions are tender & translucent. Remove from heat. Toss in all cheeses, egg, and gluten-free flour into pan and stir well.
    Put about an ice cream scoop size dollop of spinach/chicken/gluten-free flour mixture on each chicken breast and spread somewhat thin. Then roll each chicken breast into a roll that resembles a pastry roll.
    If you have a gluten-free pastry alternative, you will then wrap each chicken roll up in the gluten-free pastry, tucking the sides/ends under. Continue to wrap the remaining chicken breasts. Butter your casserole dish & line up the chicken roll ups in the pan, seam side down.
    Bake at 350F degrees for 40 minutes. These can be made a day or two ahead of time, then just pop in the oven before your guests arrive (If you skip the step with the pastry sheets, you can try securing the chicken roll ups with toothpicks, and then remove them prior to serving).

    Meatball Directions:
    1 ½ to 2 lb ground beef Roll into tiny meatballs & 10 or more gluten-free crackers, crushed brown on broiler rack at 425F and bake.

    Sauce Ingredients:
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    1 teaspoon celery seed
    1 cup Heinz catsup
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    ¼ cup cider vinegar
    1½ cup water
    ¼ cup Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
    Combined Directions:
    Simmer with meatballs at least 30 min, thicken sauce with ½ cup water & corn starch. If you use a crock-pot it may take much longer.

    As the summer gives way, and the last summer nights begin to carry the chill of fall, the oven beckons you to give up the grill and bring your cooking inside. When that happens, I like to answer that call with simple, quick and delicious recipes that will warm the house just enough to keep it comfortable. Baked chicken breasts offer one of the simplest ways to craft a quick, delicious dinner that will have family and friends smiling.
    This recipe will serve six adults, so adjust accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    ½ cup honey
    ½ cup Dijon or stone-ground mustard - gluten-free (I use Annie's)
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon dried basil
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon dried parsley
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste, and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, mix the honey, mustard, thyme, basil, paprika, and parsley.
    Pour or brush half of this mixture over the chicken, until well coated.
    Bake for about 30 minutes. Turn chicken pieces over and brush with the remaining half of the honey mustard mixture. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear.
    Cool about 10 minutes before serving with rice, or potatoes, and salad for a tasty, delicious meal.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
