Cube Steaks – What can I eat that’s gluten free?

What can I eat

Welcome to this weekly blog carnival of gluten free eating ideas.  If you have a blog, please add your link. You don’t have to have a gluten free blog.  Many recipes are naturally gluten free (no wheat, rye or barley).  If it is your first time participating, you can read the guidelines here.
Note: I recently saw a cube steak recipe on a gluten free blog, but can’t remember where.  I forgot to bookmark it, so if it was you or you know who it might be, please let me know.
Today I pulled out my crock pot and loaded it up with cube steaks.  I bought a big pack at BJ’s and decided to cook them all at once.  I’m freezing what we didn’t use for a quick dinner another night.
Cube steaks are often served with gravy.  I didn’t have time to make cream of mushroom soup to put in the crock pot, so I planned to make a gravy after it finished cooking.  Due to events beyond my control, I didn’t have time to make the gravy, but I did make some after dinner to put in with the steaks I’m freezing.  Besides the flavor and texture it adds, I think the gravy makes it look better!  It looked fine in person, but not too great in the pictures.

Crock Pot Cube Steaks

Ingredientscube steak
Place the onion slices and about 1/2 c. water in the bottom of the crock pot.  Add the steaks in layers putting a little soy sauce, seasoned salt, garlic, and mushrooms on top of each layer.  Cook  on high about 4 hours (Low probably 8 -  10 hours).
Remove the steaks and onions and any fatty bits.  Using about 2 Tb. sweet rice flour or 1 1/2 Tb. corn starch for each cup of liquid, whisk the flour/corn starch into 1/2 – 1 c. of cold water.  Add this mixture to the hot broth and whisk while heating it on high in the crock pot or in a pan on the stove (stove will be faster).  Heat and stir until it starts to boil then remove from heat and serve over the steaks.

I have felt the pull of my CrockPot fact I'm going to cook dinner in it today. It's just that time of year, isn't it?

I'm sharing my all time favorite way to make ratatouille - my friend still has tons of fresh eggplants, tomatoes, zucchini, and bell peppers in her garden and she sends them my way. I just have to make ratatouille. I can't help it. And then the chickpea pancakes - they're the perfect compliment. My husband even loves them! Best of all, the entire meal is naturally sugar free & gluten free!
Ooooo YUM! I'm so ready to break out my crock pot!
Just when life is getting busy and our fall schedule is falling into place, it's helpful to see what others are doing for dinner. Thanks!

Love this idea of seeing what everyone is making for dinner. Seems like I tend to get in a rut and make the same things over and over. Just found your blog this week and have already found a bunch of recipes I can't wait to try. Thanks!
