Step By Step  

100% beef and veggies, this no-cornstarch-added, gluten free hearty beef stew is exactly what you’ve been craving for dinner.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

If you’re new to The Paleo Ways, you may think beef stew sounds like a primal no-brainer. Right? Beef, veggies, broth. What’s not to love?

Well, as paleo grain-fearing eaters will tell you, hearty beef stew is usually a no-no.

If it’s made with non-responsibly raised meat, thickened with flour or corn starch, or canned, it’s just not going to cut it for a cavehuman diet. (That includes most of granny’s homemade versions.)

The mere thought of this sent me into a tither.

I CANNOT HAVING YOU LIVING LIFE WITHOUT BEEF STEW!

And anyway, what is life without beef stew?

These are the sort of existential questions I ache over in my kitchen, before I frantically grab pans and concoct puro brillianco, like this here Paleo Beef Stew That Doesn’t Suck.

Now, those of you wiling to sneak-cheat with tapioca powder or arrowroot will be all, like, “What’s the big deal? Just swap the flour for the ‘nuther stuff.”

But I wanted to make a version that doesn’t need any sneaky trickage. A beef stew so heart and full of veggietastic glory, that a caveperson could have whipped up this version after hunting and gathering mushrooms and berries. Sans berries.

So, buckle up your genetics, folks. Beef stew has officially evolved. This Real Food version is so tasty, you’ll want to share it with your whole clan. Around a campfire. While wearing loincloths.

Without the whole campfire and loincloths part.

Grab your pot. Let’s get paleo cooking!

Ingredient line-up! If you make your own bone broth… you are paleo royalty. If you don’t, shortcut with a box of Progresso™ stock or broth. Because sometimes a cavehuman doesn’t have time.

Our sneak secret starts here: creating a thick veggie, based puree that is pure glory. Mushrooms lend flavor and richness, while celery and sweet onion create a robust and uniform savoryness to this dish. Pop it all in a pot and stirfry with butter until tender.

Then toss veggies into a high-speed blender and puree with half the broth until smooth.

You’ll get a gloriously thick broth, like this. Pour it all back into your pot, then add the remaining broth and bring it all to a boil.
