Beef cobbler is a wonderfully filling, warming dinner that’s ideal for cold winter evenings. However, traditional cobblers are made from high-gluten flour. That’s bad news if you have any kind of gluten sensitivity. This clever recipe, I’ve found at BBC Good Food, uses gluten-free flour to make it suitable for those of us who follow a gluten-free diet. This is a hearty dish so feel free to spread it out to make more servings to cut calories.
Ingredients – Serves 3:
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 medium carrot, chopped
- 2 celery sticks, chopped
- 1 raw garlic clove, crushed
- 1 pound ground. Lean beef
- 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme
- 14 ounce can of tomatoes
- ¼ pint beef stock
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 small handful of chopped parsley
- 8 ounces gluten-free flour – I use this one available at amazon.com
- ½ teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- 2 ounces butter
- 2 ounces cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 4 ounces low fat natural yogurt
Cook the onion in a lightly oiled frying pan. Add the celery, carrot, and garlic. Cook all the vegetables until slightly browned. Add the beef and cook until the meat is browned. Use a spoon to break up any lumps. Add the thyme, tomatoes, stock, Worcestershire sauce and parsley. Season to taste. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C.
Sift the flour and baking powder and by hand, mix in the butter. Add the cheese, herbs and yogurt. Knead for form a soft dough. Put the dough on a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly. Roll to about half an inch thick and cut out nine identical circles.
Spoon the meat and vegetable mixture into an ovenproof dish. Place the dough circles on top of the and brush with egg or milk. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until the dough topping is risen and has turned golden brown. Serve immediately.
