I am a BBQ loving woman!! One thing I love about ordering barbecue at many different places is the fact that everybody makes their sauce a little differently. BBQ sauce is like snowflakes… there are not two alike. Let’s just all agree BBQ sauce can make or break your favorite rib joint!!
At home, I must admit, I do prefer to buy pre-made BBQ sauce. The convenience is hard to beat. But not all BBQ sauces are gluten free… so making sure the sauce you purchase is safe to eat is always a challenge!!
Today, I am sharing a sauce I made that was pretty easy to make. Now is it as easy as opening a bottle and using as desired… no. However, I have never been able to buy peach BBQ sauce either… and I must admit, it was really fun to make!! So I realize that today’s recipe is not one you might make all the time, however, it is one that you should keep handy for when you get a good deal on peaches and want to make your backyard BBQ a little more special.

Gluten Free Crispy Fried Beef in a Sweet Garlic Sauce
Grab your chopsticks! We have a tasty treat for you today. As you might know, I love Chinese food, and I am always experimenting in the kitchen with it. Ya know, it would just be easier if more people opened Gluten Free Chinese Food Restaurants. But until that happens, I am going to be sharing my Gluten Free Chinese Food recipes with you!! Here is the latest gluten free creation… It is a crispy beef and the sweet garlic sauce is very mild. I wanted to include lots of stir fry veggies. This can be served over white or brown rice. I love white rice but lets face it, brown rice is so much better for us… so every once in awhile I like to make sure my family gets brown rice. It works really well with this main dish. Now there seems to be a lot of ingredients and directions to this recipe, but please don’t let that distract you from making this, it actually is not a difficult dish to make and once you make it once, it will be much easier every time there after. So please give it a try and let me know what you think!!
Tip of the Day!!! If you have any recipes with Fresh Ginger… Buy the Ginger in a nice large piece. When you get it home, peel the ginger with a potato peeler. Then grab a large piece of tin foil and wrap it in there and place in your freezer. That way all you have to do is get a fine grater out when you need it and grate it frozen. Stores for months this way and that makes it a lot more cost effective and tasty!!!
As you may know, I love and miss going to Chinese food restaurants!! This is a favorite recipe of mine now that I cook Chinese food at home. Especially when our local Albertson’s Grocery Store has their Sirloin steaks on buy one get one (sometimes two for free). This recipe makes this a great deal. In fact, we normally stock up and freeze those steaks for future use. However, keep in mind if you don’t have an Albertsons near you another type of meat you can use is beef round steak. If you like beef broccoli you are going to love this Chinese food recipe!!
I had never had tomatillo salsa until just a couple of years ago. I was worried it would be too spicy. However, the friend who shared this recipe likes it a little sweet and so I make it just like she does. The recipe is for a nice naturally gluten free refreshing salsa!! Whether you have Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity, or on a Gluten Free Diet, this Mexican food salsa is a hit and easy to make and easy to take with you to a party or a pot luck!! It just takes about 15 minutes total and then toss it in the fridge. I am confident you will enjoy this easy recipe.
I am a dipper. I am a BIG dipper. Most of my friends and family are huge dippers as well. Any form of dips or sauces, I must try. Prior to the Celiac Disease diagnosis, I ate dips at all parties. In fact, I focused on the dips so much that I usually passed on the “main course” items and just dipped the night away. Now days, dippin’ is not so easy. So many dips have crazy ingredients that either contains gluten or I have no idea what they are. So what is a Celiac / Gluten Sensitive person to do?? Glad you asked, try this simple recipe dip. Trust me, it is almost as easy as buying it. But let me make one suggestion do not taste test it immediately after making. The flavors will develop, and if you test it and say… well that’s not very strong and add more onion or garlic… then you will be like me one day a few months ago… I felt that someone walking by outside of my could have detected the onion and garlic on my breath… Also, when you go to kiss your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day… Make sure they have a try of the dip first, because this is strong, dip. This tasty dip is also great on veggies but let’s face it…. I tend to buy a HUGE bag of Ruffles and let the dipping begin!!!
With the BIG GAME coming up here this appetizer is going to be a huge hit!!!
