Texas De Brazil

10 posts in this topic

I don't know if any of you have a Texas de Brazil near you. It's a Brazilian steakhouse that opened recently near me. I called them to find out if I could safely eat there. The girl on the phone didn't bat an eye and said, yes, I'll put a note on your reservation that says Celiac, and the chef will come out and explain everything to you and tell you what you can and can't have. I almost fell on the floor LOL. I am going Saturday so I will let you know how it was.

I read some reviews on UrbanSpoon.com about them that said they are great. So, fingers crossed...

The Brazilian Steakhouse concept seems to be a mostly gluten-free one. So people who don't have that one in their town, might find that a different company will work well, too.

I looked this Texas de brazil up. They are in a lot of places. Some of these grills don't have any gluten bread - just the traditional cheese bread made with tapioca flour.

Report back on here after you eat there, please. Edited: Duh! You said you would! :)

We have two Brazilian steakhouses here near me in Utah. Both are awesome. Both also have the Brazilian cheesebread which is to die for and naturally gluten free! I am so thrilled to have a place to go that is almost entirely gluten free and served bread that I can eat. I'm guessing that most people don't even know it's gluten free.

I checked it out and they do! So that makes three around here, sort of. The other two both have locations in SLC but also have locations way closer to me also. I love spending an occasional day up in the city but have no desire to drive up there just for dinner. 

 

And when you decide you are in love with Brazilian cheesebread let us know. I'll share a recipe so you can have it at home. You need a mini-muffin pan for it though.

Hello All,

 

As promised here's my review of Texas de Brazil. HOLY CRAP IT WAS AMAZING! :P

 

The chef came out and walked me through the tremendous salad bar. There were only four things at the salad bar that I could not eat! The salads were all without croutons, they had the croutons in a separate bowl. There was shrimp, salmon, soups, all different salads and cheeses. And at this particular location (in Yonkers, NY) ALL of the meats were gluten free. The chef did tell me that at some locations the sausage is the only meat we can't have.

 

The cuts of meat were delicious, and the cheese bread - oh don't get me started on the cheese bread - it was delicious! Adelaide, please please share your cheese bread recipe!!

 

It was pricey - not someplace you can eat every week - but WELL worth the money. The service was great, and the chef came out to check on me twice. I ate there Saturday night and have had no stomach issues at all. I highly recommend!

 

So there's my five star review. I hope you're all having a good day today!

This is the recipe I use and it has never failed me. I use half cheddar and half parm. I like to add a load of garlic and some basil to it to go with pasta as a sub for garlic bread. I've also been known to mince apples and use those in place of half of the cheese and add sage to go with pork. Tried a few times replacing some or all of the oil with butter, that is a no go. They're just so fun and so relatively cheap to play with. I've considered trying a breakfast one with crumbled bacon or sausage in it. But that whole "not supposed to eat sausage or bacon" thing is getting in the way. :lol: (Of course I'm not supposed to be near the cheese either so I indulge in these less frequently these days.)

 

Sorry about being slow. I'm a little touched in the head these days on remembering what I was doing. A swift kick in the pants or a message will generally get me back in line. :P

    • JMG got it down pretty much, the painful and gluten effects from eating it should clear up in a month, damage symptoms you might notice some differences as early as 2-4months but most do not noticed major improvements til about 6 months to a year. I have been gluten-free for over 3 years all my villi have healed according to the doctor on my last scope. It is very important to not cheat and avoid any kind of CC as it can set you back weeks or months. I would suggest a whole foods only diet for the first month or two, no dairy, simple stews, soups, etc. make for easy to digest and simple meals. Check out the 101 thread for some good information. PS a new combo crockpot, steamer, rice cooker combo and liners for a crock pot will be a life saver for making simple meals and easy clean ups. Quick cook microwave ware will also be handy making sure you have gluten-free cooked meals if you can not get new cookware immediately. I normally suggest cleaning out the entire house, scrubbing down knobs, handles, on the drawers, sink, fridge, cubbards etc.  throw out condiment jars, checking ingredients on everything in the house including your hygiene and makeup. Putting in drawer organizers for new utensils, throwing out scratched glass, teflon, plastic, and steel cookware. Throwing out any Tupperware, and cutting boards, some utensils that can not be cleaned well. Some times you can save cast iron and stainless steel cook ware if you can run it in your ovens cleaning cycle over 600F. Gluten is a protein like blood if you can not clean a item where a CSI team will not find it give it up, it is not a germ that can be killed with disinfectant.  I use freezer paper for clean prep surfaces, also makes clean up a breeze, I tend to use gloves alot also when fixing foods,
    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.
