Gumbo is a classic Creole stew composed of either chicken or sausage and usually served over rice. Influenced by West African and Native American cuisines, this classic Creole dish typically uses three thickening agents in its preparation: okra, roux and file powder (ground-up sassafras leaves).
Gumbo recipes differ, but most use similar basic ingredients. While some use a dark roux for its deep toasty flavors and rich textures, others opt for light roux to reduce cooking times, or combine okra and file powder for their signature consistency.
Once your gumbo has simmered for several hours, add chopped “Trinity” vegetables – onion, bell pepper and celery. Cook until all three vegetables are tender before stirring in your sausage slices and Tasso. It’s best served right away but can be stored up to three days in the refrigerator before being spooned onto white or brown rice and garnished with green onions, parsley and gumbo file as a final step!
Original to Mexico and the Caribbean, beef barbacoa is a slow cooked dish of meat with seasonings and light broth until very tender. This dairy free crockpot recipe includes chili powder and ground cumin as well as chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for extra heat and smokeiness.
While this recipe calls for beef chuck roast, I love adding short ribs or oxtail as these cuts provide an abundance of rich bones and cartilage to add an incredible depth of flavorful broth into this dish.
Vegetable oil is used to sear the beef before adding it to the slow cooker, while red enchilada sauce adds delicious spice and color. Liquid smoke gives an irresistibly rich smokiness, while one tablespoon of brown sugar provides just a hint of sweetness and fresh lime juice adds brightness and apple cider vinegar balances it all out perfectly – an easy dairy free crockpot barbacoa recipe with ingredients you probably already have on hand in both pantry and refrigerator!
Beef & Broccoli
Try this dairy-free crockpot recipe for an irresistible beef and broccoli meal you can prepare right in your slow cooker! It’s simple to prepare, tastes better than Chinese takeout and reheats effortlessly!
Combine broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and minced garlic in the slow cooker before adding slices of beef for 4 hours on low. After that, stir in water and corn starch before simmering the sauce for 30 minutes to thicken it further. Finally, serve over cooked rice (or use lower carb alternatives such as quinoa or cauliflower rice instead) with garnishing of green onions for garnishing!
Frozen broccoli florets make this dish easy! No defrosting necessary; the slow cooker does all the work! For added spice, a pinch or two of crushed red pepper or Sriracha is sure to do the trick! Enjoy this meal alongside Sunomono Japanese cucumber salad as a complete way of getting protein, calcium, potassium, and folate for an impressive nutritional punch!
