I love coming home to warm meals that are all ready from the crock pot or slow cooker. Paleo dinners are especially easy to throw together before leaving for work. This is one dish that will be hot and ready when you walk in. The best part is that is will please your whole family and fill your whole house with warm inviting smells.
Lower Carb Paleo Crock Pot Beef Stew
1 lb. grass fed beef cubed, (or lamb stew meat) raw or frozen
(meat on the bone is best)
1 chopped onion
2 large peeled and diced turnips (optional)
1/2 can of tomato paste
2 cloves of minced garlic
4 sprigs of thyme
2 medium carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, diced
2 bay leaves
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2-3 cups green beans (optional)
Sea Salt and pepper as desired
1 tbsp arrowroot (optional)
Place all ingredients in the crock pot and and fill it with water until the pot is 3/4 full, except arrowroot.
Cook for 6 hours on low.
After cooking if the mixture is too thin add the arrowroot to 1/4 cup of water and stir.
Then stir dissolved mixture into stew slowly until it thickens.
Taste before serving and adjust spices if needed.
Always use organic vegetables to limit toxic exposure to pesticides.
