Become Determined!

Since going GF my mom and I have figured out how to successfully adapt many of my favorite meals, while others we are still working on. One meal I really enjoyed before going GF was French Dipped Sandwiches. The only problem was many of the ingredients contained gluten and we didn’t know the proper substitutes. Recently, I have been determined to figure out how I could enjoy a French Dipped Sandwich once again. With a little help from my mom and a trip to our localWhole Foods we were able to make this meal possible. This recipe is easy to make and requires little effort, since the meat cooks in a crock pot. Below are the ingredients you will need:


Rump Roast
16 oz of >Pacific Natural Foods French Onion Soup
16 oz of Pacific Natural Foods Beef Broth
1 Can of gluten-free beer (we used Redbridge)
Gluten-free roll/ baguette

Trim the meat before placing it in crock pot. Cook on low setting for 8 hours. Before serving slice and heat bread in the oven. When serving place some of the broth in a small dish for dipping. Note: For my sandwich I used a piece of Wild Flours’baguette. The bread was really good, and worked great when making this sandwich.Joan’s Great Bakes Italian bread would also work well too!

Though the other members in my family enjoyed their sandwich on gluten-containing bread, we all thought the meal came out great; I know I am looking forward to leftovers! It makes me so happy that I want to try out old recipes once again. The more successes, the more variety I will have to choose from! I know that it can be daunting (especially when you are newly diagnosed), but I challenge you to grab some of your favorite recipes and adapt them to fit your dietary needs. Once you learn how to adapt (and trust me I am still learning), you will find the possibilities are endless. Take a chance, and remember; if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Best of Luck
