Gluten and Dairy Free Options
For gluten free; replace the flour with cornstarch. Use a gluten free beef stock and gluten free worcestershire sauce. If you can’t find gluten free worcestershire sauce then replace it with gluten free soy sauce. For dairy free; make sure the beef stock doesn’t contain dairy.
Save money by buying cheap cuts of meat in bulk packs when they go on special. Divide into 1 pound packs then freeze. Beef can be frozen for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge or on the defrost mode on your microwave.
Buy sauces you use a lot of in bulk packs such as Worcestershire sauce. Wash out an old squeeze bottle then refill with the sauce so it will be easier to use. This also saves on plastic waste.
