Paleo Crockpot Beef Stew

           Happy Food Day Everyone! Celebrate this National holiday the healthy way. Forget the junk food, and let's all cook up our favorite nutritious recipes. Need a nice recipe to warm up this chilly fall day? The best part about fall is variety of yummy soups and stews you can make. They are the perfect meal to enjoy while cuddling up on the couch with your friends or family. We loved this one, and I hope you all will to!

  • 1 lb beef stew meat (They had some in Simple Truth brand at Kroger.)
  • 2 tbsp Paleo cooking fat (I used bacon fat.)
  • 4 c beef stock
  • 1 c onion
  • 1 c celery
  • 3 carrots
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 pinch sea salt and black pepper (Add more to taste.)
  1. Dice the onion and celery into small pieces. Peel and chop carrots.
  2. Add beef to the crockpot followed by your vegetables, beef broth, and spices.
  3. Mix together thoroughly and then set your crockpot to medium for 4-6 hours. Stir the stew occasionally while it cooks. Break up the meat with your utensil.
  4. After 4-6 hours, set the crockpot on warm for 4-6 more hours. The mixture will thicken up as the meat separates and potatoes break up. It will have more of a soupy texture than you may expect, but it tastes amazing!
