Gluten-Free Stew Seasoning

This bulk Gluten-Free Stew Seasoning speeds prep time by eliminating the need to measure out spices each time you make a batch.


Gluten-Free Stew Seasoning Recipe - also dairy-free, soy-free, corn-free, and allergy-friendly
Beef Stew is a hearty dish that I make regularly in the winter months. This gluten-free stew seasoning speeds prep time by eliminating the need to measure out spices each time you make stew. Plus, this recipe gives you control over the ingredients. Most store bought flavor packets contain wheat, and sometimes have soy, corn, dairy, and other additives. This homemade, gluten-free beef stew seasoning is a clean recipe that uses just spices and rice flour.

Recipe Tips: Gluten-Free Stew Seasoning

  1. If you live in a very humid climate, add a sprinkle of uncooked rice to your stew seasoning jar and shake it. The rice helps to absorb moisture, which prevents the seasonings from clumping and setting up. If you notice it caking, add a little more rice.
  2. This gluten-free stew seasoning is also good in other soups and savory sauces. The rice flour will thicken the liquid a little. If making a roux for a sauce, you can add the seasoning with the gluten-free flour as you make the roux.

Ingredient Notes & Substitutions

  • Rice Flour: You can use brown or white rice flour. I do like to use superfine brown rice flour, but you don’t have to use superfine for this gluten-free stew seasoning. I haven’t tested this recipe with other gluten-free flours, but it might work well with sorghum flour. Do not use a flour blend that contains any gums, and I don’t recommend using coconut flour or almond flour. These don’t substitute seamlessly.
  • Sea Salt: I recommend using fine sea salt. This helps the salt disperse better in the seasoning.
  • Onion & Garlic: I like the little bits from the granulated onion and garlic, but if you can’t find them, you can use the powdered versions.
  • Herbs & Spices: Make sure the spices that you source are gluten-free, and allergy-friendly, if needed. In most cases, the jars contain just the spice or herb. But on rare occasions, other ingredients might be added.

I am so excited to find this recipe and not wonder anymore to myself " How am I going to replace that packet seasoning for my beef stew tomorrow?" I have all my spice bottles out on the kitchen table and am headed to the CO-OP for the rest. I have a good feeling this is going to be a lovely addition to our kitchen, Thanks!

Mamaleb, You are so welcome. I just love that I can keep this in the pantry and pull it out and make a quick stew in my pressure cooker. I hope you like it. xoLexie

Years later…. I just pulled out this recipe to make a new batch and had forgotten all about posting and never knew you replied! Well, we are still loving this recipe years later 🙂 Its a fall and winter staple. Best wishes! ~ Leah

Looks wonderful! How many ounces of broth in a carton?? What measurement of seasoning mix per pound of stew?? I am ready to get this in the pot!

Lexie December 20, 2012 - 3:58 pm

Nancy … 32 ounces per carton. And I'm sorry, I don't have an answer for you re: your spice/pound of stew question. xoLexie

Hi Lexie, I've newly dscovered your page and am having my husband make your beef stew recipe this weekend. I have a sensitivity to Gluten and Rice. Would almond or coconut flour work for this seasoning recipe? Thanks!

j November 21, 2018 - 1:07 pm

I make it with garbanzo bean flour and it is wonderful!

Lexie November 14, 2013 - 7:49 pm

Kristina, I don't think coconut flour or almond would work here. In this recipe the rice flour is used as a thickener and has no impact on the flavor. What I would do is leave out the rice flour (but then you will have to adjust the amount of the seasoning you add to the stew accordingly b/c the bulk of the seasoning mix is rice flour) and then about 10 minutes before serving I would whisk in a slurry of 1/4-1/2 cup water and 1/2-1 tablespoon arrowroot starch or tapioca flour … if you want a thicker stew 🙂 xoLexie

Kristina November 19, 2013 - 1:29 pm

Hi again Lexie, went to Whole Foods and spoke with the 'Flour Guy'… it turns out that potato flour was the perfect substitution. I didn't need to do a slurry or anything additional Just followed your initial recipe. I used Bob's Red Mill brand. Turned out really good!

Lexie November 19, 2013 - 2:34 pm

Kristina … that is super!!! Always nice to have a "flour guy" to consult 🙂 I didn't think of potato flour … but you are right, that's a good choice (did you use equal measures)? Plus I bet it added some great flavor. Thanks for trying the recipe. It is in my new book and it is always confirming to know that a recipe is working for others besides me 🙂 xoxo Lexie

Kristina November 19, 2013 - 3:03 pm

Yes…Equal measures worked out just fine! The only other thing I added to the actual 'Stew' and not to the seasoning was one large yellow onion (cut into 'chunks'.) Everything else was exactly the same.

Edna August 16, 2016 - 1:51 pm

I was wondering about a substitute for rice flour? Thanks

Edna August 16, 2016 - 1:53 pm

I just seen you already answered that! Sorry!

Made a version of beef stew using this seasoning this last night for my son’s 27th birthday. I didn’t have stew meat so I slow cooked a pot roast and then shredded it. I used the Gluten free stew seasoning to make the roux. I use garbanzo bean flour. I like the color of it and the taste. Anyways all my kids loved it. Both of my girls asked for the recipe. I wasn’t able to find the same recipe I printed out a couple of years ago. There were no peas in the recipe I have and it wasn’t a slow cooker recipe either. Did you get rid of that recipe?

Melissa Haneline November 15, 2022 - 6:40 pm

Has anyone tried this with all purpose GF flour blend?

Alexa November 17, 2022 - 9:47 am

Hi Melissa, that should work just fine!
