Hearty Beef Stew paleo

Recipe from http://paleodietlifestyle.com/hearty-beef-stew/

Potatoes are Paleo

"You’ll see that I’ve thrown 2 optional white potatoes in the recipe. Those add great bulk and taste to the final stew if you choose to add them. For those who are still scared of white potatoes or who see them as inferior to other root vegetables, please refer to my article on Paleo 2.0 or my Pesto Mashed Potatoes recipe for a quick explanation on why carbohydrates or white potatoes are not the enemy and why the first Paleo authors were wrong in recommending against potatoes."

Beef stew preparation

Preparation

  1. In a large saucepan over a medium-high heat, combine the onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, if using, as well as the cooking fat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Add the beef to the saucepan, followed by the tomatoes, beef stock, rosemary and thyme. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
