7 Gluten-Free Slow-Cooker Dinners

Here are some gluten-free recipes from different cuisines you can try even if you can consume gluten in your meals, they are so tasty!

Oh, slow cooker, you make life so much easier for us! But for those of us who need slow cooker deliciousness to also be gluten-free, that ease can be a little harder to come by. Or is it? Many beef-and-potato stew recipes are naturally gluten-free. But many recipes that seem gluten-free may contain some foods you'd never think would contain gluten (hello, soy sauce!). These seven top-rated, wildly delicious, gluten-free slow-cooker dinners appeal to gluten fiends and gluten-frees alike. Enjoy!

4. Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

"This was easy and delicious!" Says TRACI8878 of this recipe by MJWAGNER68. "I added a couple of cloves of chopped garlic and a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce." Many reviewers also recommend adding the peppers at the end if you like them crisper. Make sure you substitute Tamari, gluten-free soy sauce, in place of the regular soy sauce this recipe calls for.

5. Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

"A wonderful 'fix and forget' recipe that is easy and pleases just about everyone," says recipe creator Carla Joy. She suggests serving it "with rice or pasta, or even alone." Gluten-free tip: There are so many delicious gluten-free pasta options these days, so don't count out that pasta option just yet. You can always serve this over rice, though.

6. Pork Chalupas

"Delicious!" says Athena of this recipe by Stefani Ferguson. "The only thing I did differently was toss the raw beef in adobo saffron spices before browning it. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a tee. Definitely a new family favorite! Even my 2 year old loves it!" IMPORTANT NOTE: To go fully gluten-free, be sure to use corn tortillas rather than the flour ones the recipe calls for.
