Paleo Beef Stew
Well, stew weather has arrived! In fact, it hit with such urgency that I made a special trip to the store for just stew ingredients. It was as delicious as I remembered and made lots of leftovers! What a way to welcome the cooler weather! I think I'll be keeping the crock pot out for awhile!
Comfort food is only a crock pot away!
Recipe: I like to keep my stew vegetables and meat on the larger, chunky side!
2 pkg. stew meat (about 1 lb. each)
2 carrots, sliced thick
3 stalks celery, sliced
1 large rutabaga, chopped in big chunks
2 turnips, chopped in chunks
1 parsnip, sliced thick
10 boiler onions, whole, peeled
32 oz. organic beef broth
1 C almond meal
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1 T oregano
pinch sea salt
1 bay leaf
1 T olive oil
Heat olive oil in a skillet. In a ziplock bag add almond meal and all seasonings (except bay leaf). Place stew meat in bag and thoroughly coat. Brown stew meat... (you may have to do this in batches, depending on how large your skillet is), add to crock pot (include all almond meal-spice bits). Add all vegetables to crock pot (except boiler onions). Cover meat and vegetables with beef broth, add bay leaf, and cook on low for 4-6 hours. About 20 minutes before serving, add boiler onions - cook until tender.
Serve and enjoy this cool weather friend!
