This French Beef recipe by guest contributor and clinical nutritionist Tiffany Flaten is the ultimate in gluten and dairy-free comfort food.
With savory herbs, mushrooms, and a generous dose of red wine, the resulting dish is a bit like stroganoff minus the dairy, with a thick, rich, and meaty gravy. It’s fairly quick, family-friendly, and highly adaptable to meet your dietary needs.

The only difficult thing about this meal may be choosing which gluten-free bed to serve it on. Depending on your current dietary requirements, any of these would make a fine base:

If you’re concerned about consuming alcohol via food, the amount in this finished dish is minimal. In a recipe like this one, which is simmered for an extended period of time, 95% of the alcohol will evaporate.

Thyroid-healthy Recipe Highlights:
- Grass-fed (a.k.a. grass-finished) beef has a far different and superior nutrient profile than industrially raised, grain-finished beef, and is highly beneficial to thyroid health. It contains up to five times more Omega-3s than conventionally raised beef, which can help reduce inflammation in the body, as well as boost immunity. It can also have more than twice the amount of Vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and twice as much CLA as grain-fed beef (a fatty acid associated with reducing body fat).
- Just 1 mushroom provides 7% DV of selenium, a nutrient important for the production and regulation of thyroid hormones.
- Bone broth is one of the most highly recommended foods for anyone suffering from an autoimmune disease. The collagen and glycine can help repair cell damage in the intestinal tract. It also supports hair, skin, and nail health, as well as our body's detox pathways.
