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 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
Put the oil in a frying pan and cook the onion until soft. Add the carrot, celery and garlic and cook until lightly browned. Mix in the ground beef, breaking it up with a spoon. Cook, stirring often, until the meat is browned. Add the thyme, tomatoes, stock, Worcestershire sauce and parsley, and season to taste. Cover tightly and simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C.
Sift the flour and baking powder and rub in the butter. Add the cheese and herbs, then the yogurt, and mix to a soft dough. Turn out on to a lightly floured board and knead lightly. Roll to about ½ inch thick and cut out 9 rounds.
Tip the mince mixture into an ovenproof dish. Casually arrange the dough circles on top of the mince and brush with egg or milk. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the topping is risen and golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
