Vegetable beef stew that is paleo-friendly and free of tomatoes.
For the past couple of years, my husband and I have bought a whole fourth part of a cow. That’s a lot of meat, I know!
Buying meat this way not only saves us money (the steaks end up being cheaper than most ground meat you would buy from the grocery store), but ensures we are gettting fresh, grass-fed beef, from a farm that follows organic practices. We also get some bones for making nourishing bone broth, and extra fat for rendering into beef tallow (which is a source of good saturated fat). And it all keeps very well, thanks to our extra “rummage sale” freezer. So, it’s been a great, budget-friendly investment in our health.
All of this beef calls for some good hearty soups and stews, especially during the winter months. I like my soup with plenty of protein, and plenty of vegetables. For this beef stew, I left out all tomatoes, and added turnips in place of the classic white potatoes. The result is a flavorful, Paleo-friendly and nightshade-free beef stew!
