My husband and I are on a shoe-string diet and I'm gluten intolerant. That means that anything made with wheat or barley is out for me. That means no pasta (I know there's gluten-free pasta, but I can't get that at the moment), no bread, and nothing malted.

Mr. Fluff just threw a new stipulation at me, too. He's tired of chicken. "Give me some ground beef or something!" he says.

"Sure," I say, but I don't have many recipes involving beef.

I know you are all very creative and fantastic and I can't wait to see what advice you come up with. I don't want to feed him tacos all the time!

I have gluten intolerant Canadian friends and they eat alot of stir fry made w/ wheat free soy sauce.
They use alot of:
Rice Noodles
Rice
Veggies
Beef/Chicken/Pork/Shrimp

So, go stir fry- at least it ain't tacos

You could make a beef stew with potatoes and carrots as the starch
Shredded beef burritos only in a corn tortilla wrap
Cook cubed beef with mushrooms, a little tomatoes, onions, spices ( your preference) if you can swing it red wine.  Cook it down till the meat falls apart and add a little sour cream to make it creamy. Serve over rice
Beef stir fry with vegetables over rice
Shepard's pie since it has mashed potatoes instead of wheat

That sounds great so far!

I have made shepherd's pie before and it was really good. Actually, it was even better re-heated, lol.

Pot roast!  I am also on a very tight budget, so I get a nice chunk of beef roast (there is almost always something roastable on sale) and use a BIG roasting pan with a ton of veggies (so a serving equals about 4-6 oz. of meat and a bunch of lovely roasted veggies) and then I freeze what we won't eat in the next few days.  I use this recipe as my framework - I never follow recipes exactly! --> http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_127,00.html

Italian sausage spaghetti sauce!  Saute/grill 2-3 (mild italian) sausages until just done and set aside, drain most of fat from pan.  Saute chopped onions, mushrooms, garlic (and bell peppers, if you like 'em).  Remove from heat.  Chop sausages (I cut 'em in half lengthwise, and then chop - you can stretch the smaller pieces more  Wink), add to sauteed veggies.  Then plop in a jar or two of pre-made spag. sauce (depending on how much sausage/vegs you have), and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Almost instant fancy-schmancy homemade spaghetti sauce!  Also, freeze the excess.  There will be excess.

Hmmm...  what else?  Fajitas with corn tortillas.  Something like moo shu beef (the Chinese dish, with the pancakes and plum sauce - yum!) with cabbage leaves in place of pancakes?  I've also baked very small roasts (or a small but nice, thick steak), and served them sliced under a ton of sauteed mushrooms and onions (and with another vegetable).

Also being on a very tight budget, I don't have a ton of beef recipes either.  I'm interested to see what everyone suggests!
My DBF and I have pretty much been living out of the freezer, lately.  I spend a few days cooking up a storm, always in HUGE batches, and freeze it in 3-4 portion containers.  I can make $60 worth of groceries stretch almost two weeks this way!

Ground Beef you could totally pull off some shepherd's pie, easy peasy.... My mom made SP on down on our luck weeks (you know when you don't have alot of spare money) Her's was real simple. Just brown the ground beef, add some onion, maybe green pepper if you like, some garlic or in a pinch you can use savory brown beef gravy. and add stuff to that- its to keep the meat moist without turning it into soup. Then you coat the bottom of a pan with olive oil spray or whatever you prefer and dump the beef mixture in. Then you add mashed potatoes wether from a box or fresh and smear that on top completely.
Now comes the part where you feel liek a chef.....

Wether you add it to the mashed potatoes or the beef you also add carrots, peas, green beans if you wish, standard stew veggies except the tomatoes since they make the whole thing wet. You can also add some shredded cheddar cheese to the top (not too much, its not nachos). Then pop that bad boy in the oven at 350 for about 20min... keep an eye on it- you don't have to worry too much about making sure its safe since everything is pretty much cooked before you even put it in the pan. Its in  the oven to melt the cheese and cook the veggies you added, and voila you are done. Some people even add a crust at the bottom to complete the whole "pie" feel, so unless you can manage a gluten free non sweet crust I'd just go crustless.

Good luck


Oh! You can also make your own hamburger helper by adding sauce and noodles to browned ground beef

mmms . . . that easy-peasy SP sounds awesome. i have a recipe for SP, but it's WAY too involved and difficult. this one is much better!

i actually ended up doing a stew. i've never made stew before, but it was really good.

Here's what I did:
I browned two and a quarter pounds of ground beef.

While that was going on, I tossed half a bag of chopped baby carrots, three or four peeled potatoes, and chopped red onions (actually almost pureed!) into a stock pot and dumped in a can and a half of beef broth (swansons, yeah baby!) plus one more can of water in after. I set that to boil while I made a mixture of 1 tblsp corn starch and 3 tsp COLD water. When the stew was boiling, I stirred in the cornstarch mixture. Somewhere back in there I tossed in the beef.

I let it simmer for around half an hour and sprinkled in paprika, ground cumin, salt, and pepper, then served it with steamed green beans. BIG HIT!

even though this was posted in 2005 i will still reply. never know who is still looking for a gluten free beef meal
I recently bought a minute rice cookbook at the check out at walmart and a lot of the recipes are gluten free
I've tried these two so far and both have been great
This is a rice lasagna
http://www.minuterice.com/en-us/recipes/2796/RiceLasagna.aspx
Tex Mex Bake
http://www.minuterice.com/en-us/recipes/2806/TexMexBake.aspx
(for this one it calls for a processed cheese but we used a shredded cheese to make it a little healthier and it turned out just fine)

My mom always made Tamale Pie and we all loooved it.

It consisted of hamburger and sausage cooked together with chili powder/taco seasoning type stuff, then put in a casserole dish or cake pan with black olives, corn, and canned tomatoes. Mix it all together, then pour cornbread dough (batter? i've never made it) over top and then add cheese to the top of that. Bake till the cornbread is done, slice, scoop, and eat with those huuuge corn chips that come in a paper bag.

Yum. Seriously.
