Have you ever had a red meat craving? Generally, I don’t, and I am perfectly fine with eating ‘meat’ once in-awhile or even occasionally however, there are the few and far between cravings where my body wants a bit of red meat.
I’m not referring to a big ol’ steak or even prime rib on my plate because that form of ‘red meat’ has never appealed to me. Now, if I’m cooking my own red meat like ground beef, steak stir fry, steak Stromboli or in this wonderfully delicious sirloin tip roast then yes, I will have some red meat for sure.
Sometimes I even hate to write about how I’m really only able to eat that I make, but when you suffer from digestive issues it becomes your reality. Meaning, you know what you are putting into any recipe and what offending ingredients you are leaving out. I also know that if I’m making any food I don’t have to worry about any digestive discomfort hours to days after. If you have a reaction, especially to gluten and dairy, you are very aware of how your food is prepared thus limiting what can and cannot be eaten. This not only can be difficult to make food but puts a strain on family when they are doing any of the cooking when you are present.
Anyway, on to my mom’s recipe, which I tweaked just a bit to accommodate my issues without taking away any of the flavor! I look at my cooking as giving the gift of ‘delicious health’ to anyone eating food I have prepared! I suppose this is the humorous side of cooking with food intolerances!
My husband bought me an Instant pot, but I have yet to use it on my own and decided that since I really don’t know how it works, I’m going to stick with my ever trusted crockpot. I will blog on my instant pot later and definitely report back.
I have made this recipe where I have both seared the roast in a prior to placing it in the crockpot, as well as placing the entire roast into the crockpot without searing it. This step is entirely up to you. Once the meat is seared or not, turn your crockpot on high and place the meat in along with 1 diced green pepper, 1 medium diced onion, 3-4 cloves of diced fresh garlic, 1 fresh 4 oz container of mushrooms (I use baby bella brown mushrooms), and a packet of French onion seasoning (mine was from Frontier Soups), or feel free to use the Lipton French onion seasoning packet.
Set it on high and check occasionally over the next several hours and dinner is done!!!
- Sirloin Tip Roast (I ask the butcher to cut it in chunks or into quarters)
- 1 large green pepper
- 1 container of fresh mushrooms
- 1 packet of French Onion seasoning packet (Lipton’s makes one readily available at most grocery stores)
- 1 medium onion
- 3-4 cloves of diced garlic
Turn crockpot on high and add meat, diced green pepper, onion, garlic, sliced mushrooms, and seasoning pack of French onion. Cover with lid and check periodically.
