Gluten free beef stew

Published 24 May, 2007

This is a great way to make a tasty gluten free beef stew when you haven't got any stock to hand. The powerful flavours of the anchovies and capers more than make up for any missing meat flavours.

Gluten free beef stew

Serves 4 with some veggies

800g stewing steak cut into 1-2 inch chunks (you can use a cheap cut as it will be slow-cooked to tender perfection :-)
400g onion, thickly sliced
25g tin anchovies in oil
2 tbsp capers, rinsed and chopped. You can get capers in salted water which should be gluten free, but do check of course
2 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsely
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp mustard - English or French will do. Again, check for gluten-free-ness

The tart flavours of the anchovies and capers made sweet potato mash a perfect accompaniment to the beef stew. The easy way is to 'roast' some sweet potatoes in the microwave, scoop out the flesh and mash up with a nice big lump of butter or gluten free dairy free spread in our case :-)
