Few meals are as complete as a paleo beef stew,
you get protein in the form of succulent beef cuts and great minerals and vitamins from the heaps of vegetables used. Most paleo beef stew recipes are pretty resourceful as well, and can be made from leftover’s and almost anything. The recipe I list below is great for those cold nights or for planning for the week. The below recipe should feed around 5-8 people.
Paleo Beef Stew Ingredients:
- 500-800 grams of beef. You can use any cut you like, stewing beef is pretty cost effective!
- Vegetables: I’d say an equal amount of veggies to meat is good. This will ensure the meal is hearty and dense. Brocolli, carrots, onions, patty-pans, all good!
- Beef stock: You can either “cheat” and use a stock cube or liquid stock or make your own. Making your own will ad quite a bit of time to your cooking and preperation times though, so be mindful of that fact.
How to prepare:
- Dice the meat if you have to. Keep the pieces bite sized, small pieces will be frustrating to eat, and large pieces will require more than one utencil.
- Dice the vegetables.
- Bring some water to the boil and add the stock.
- Brown the meat in a pan for flavour.
How to cook:
- Add the veggies to the water and cook for aroun 5 minutes.
- Add the meat and leave to cook for around 30 minutes. You can extend this period to get more tender meat, so adjust as per your requirements.
- Serve and enjoy!
