Ready In:
4hrs 20mins


  • 2 lbs of chunky stewing beef (I like to combine pork and beef)
  • 12 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 medium celery ribs, sliced on a slight angle
  • 4 ounces of fresh mung bean sprouts (you may substitute for canned, but if you are highly sensitive to corn be wary of the citric acid)
  • 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 (8 ounce) can bamboo shoots (preservative free, only in water)
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts (preservative free, only in water)
  • 2 cups dry rice
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot
  • 1 (5 1/4 ounce) jar of bead unsulphured molasses (Dynasty brand or any other variety of unsulphured molasses)
  • san-j organic gluten-free soy sauce


  • Place meat into bottom of the crock pot. Add jar of molasses, then fill empty molasses jar with San-J and pour into crock pot. (For a lower-sodium dish add less molasses and less soy sauce in equal parts.) Next add two pints of water, then all remaining ingredients.
  • Please note: when adding arrowroot starch it is best to add it to cold water to avoid clumping. Be sure to stir the powder until it dissolves into a smooth creamy liquid. Uncover and unplug the crockpot when the dish is ready to be served, then in a separate saucepan prepare rice as directed. Serves 6-8 adult-sized portions.

I run an allergy friendly kitchen for my three boys, the oldest of which has allergies to wheat and corn. I believe in healthy, organic cooking whenever possible. I try to create recipes that are familiar favorites but with allergy friendly ingredients. I stay away from artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives as well.
