Clean Gluten-Free Country-Style Steak

Below is my recipe for “clean”, gluten-free country style steak that’s just as delicious as the traditional southern style dish made that’s made with white flour. An added bonus is that it’s super-healthy!

Since cleaning up my diet, I gave up wheat because it’s so highly inflammatory. All of us southern folks love our gravy, and one of the hardest things to consider for elimination when I switched to a clean eating lifestyle was gravy. Doing without gravy just wasn’t an option!  After a lot of experimenting, I finally found a great thickener that works just as good as white flour and actually tastes amazing. Garbanzo bean flour! Did I mention it’s also super healthy? At the bottom of this post is some information about garbanzo beans (chickpeas) and the delicious garbanzo bean flour.

Here’s my recipe for clean gluten-free country style steak:

My recipe makes a lot of gravy, because I LOVE gravy! You can scale back on the gravy if you want by scaling back on the broth. I like to serve my clean gluten-free country style steak with rice or mashed potatoes. For the vegetable, I like something green with this dish like fresh green beans, broccoli, or Brussels sprouts.

Ingredients:

6 all-natural or grass-fed cube steaks
1 quart (32 ounces) bone broth or organic beef broth.
1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill garbanzo bean flour, plus another 1-2 Tbs for thickening the gravy.
2 Tbs grape seed oil or coconut oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
Take steaks out of refrigerator and get them to room temperature
Mix the 1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. I like to put it all in a sandwich bag and shake it up good.
Put half the grape seed oil into a frying pan and heat to medium.
Rub the garbanzo bean flour mixture into the steaks, front and back. Put the remaining flour mixture into a small container with a lid (like tupperware). You’ll use this to make gravy later.
When oil is hot, put three steaks into the pan and brown on both sides.
Remove the browned steaks and set aside. Scrape the drippings off the pan and sit them aside with the browned steaks.
Put remainder of oil into pan and let it get hot. Brown the last 3 steaks the same way. Remove when done.
When steaks are done, it’s time to make the gravy.
Pour bone broth into the pan with the drippings from the browned steaks. Bring to a low boil.
While bone broth is getting hot, put a little water into the remaining garbanzo bean flour mixture and put the lid on the container. Shake until the flour is dissolved

When the broth is boiling, turn down the heat to low and pour in the flour-water mixture. Stir until the garbanzo bean flour is dissolved.
The gravy will thicken quickly. If needed, add a little more flour-water mixture.
Taste and add more seasoning to the gravy if needed.
Put the steaks into the gravy, turn heat to low and put a lid on the pan.
Simmer on low (covered) for 45 minutes to an hour.

Your gluten free country style steak will be fork-tender and soooooo delicious! Serve it with rice or mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
