Paleo Diet Menu: Simple Beef Stew Recipe #
Here’s an easy way to turn affordable beef stew meat into a rich, flavorful stew. Also try this with buffalo stew meat. This makes a great meal with a baked sweet potato and steamed greens.
1 lb beef round stew meat
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 stalk celery, chopped
½ medium onion, chopped
3 medium cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
¼ tsp pepper
4 cups water
Optional: 1 medium carrot (sliced), ½ bay leaf, ½ tsp paprika
Lay the meat in a single layer in a plastic bag and tenderize it (see the recipe above).
In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown the meat in olive oil for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chopped celery, onion, garlic, and optional carrot. Cook for five minutes more.
Add the water, pepper and the optional bay leaf and paprika. Bring the stew to a boil. Turn the heat down to low or mediumlow so that the stew simmers (bubbles gently).
Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the water is almost gone and you’re left with the meat and vegetables (fortyfive minutes to an hour). Watch the pot near the end of the cooking time and stir more frequently to be sure that the stew doesn’t burn.
If you used a bay leaf, remove it from the stew before serving.
This makes four servings for a woman and three servings for a man.
