My Gluten Free friends it has been so long since I have kept up on my blog!! And it is not because I was not thinking of you, but these past two years have been quite the adventure. I managed a complete career change, to buy and renovate and apartment, take up a couple of new sports (add to an already long list) and of course travel and experiment with new foods and recipes…

The seasons are changing here in Whistler, the snow has melted, the flowers are blooming, and finally our food is becoming fresher, thus inspiring my renewed energy to cook!

Tonight my husband and I walked down to our local shop to select fresh ingredients for a delicious dinner. The result was tastie and I wanted to share with my fellow Gluten Free Foodies.

Pan Seared Steak with a Gluten Free Mushroom Gravy
Select a fresh cut of steak from your local store or butcher, a handful of mushrooms, 1 onion, 1 small carton of cream, a green vegetable (we chose Broccoli) and a couple fresh potatoes.

Peel potatoes and thinly slice with in a food processor. Layer the slices in a baking dish and cover with a teaspoon of chill & garlic olive oil, a dollop of butter and a generous splash of cream. Bake in the oven for approx 45 mins.  Test with a fork to make sure potatoes are cooked through. Top with a small layer of fresh cheddar cheese and back for a further 5mins.

While potatoes are cooking, prepare remaining ingredients – slice mushrooms, slice 1/2 onion and cut broccoli florets.

Heat your fry pan to a medium-high heat. Place steak on hot pan and sear each side to desired tastes. Note – it is important to only turn your steak the once. Once cooked, remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes.

Add onions to the hot pan with a splash of hot water and cook for 3 minutes until onions are slightly browned. Add mushrooms, cream and reduce to a simmer for 10 mins.

Note – to thicken sauce add half a teaspoon of corn flour or arrowroot to 3 tablespoons of cold water, stir into a paste and add to sauce.

Serve on a warm plate with thinly sliced steak covered in a delicious gluten free mushroom gravy with potatoes gratin and steamed brocoli.


PS. Sorry for no pictures… we ate too quickly ;-)
