Recipe: Comforting Beef Stew (Perfect for a chilly day)

Recipe: Comforting Beef Stew (Perfect for a chilly day)

My little C had a cold recently… and then I started to feel my own “yuckies” coming on. Thankfully, with lots of great advice from lovely people like you, and plenty of fermented cod liver oil I was able to stop the cold dead in its tracks. Success! Still, it’s been one of “those” weeks where I needed something comforting to eat. Something nourishing. Something warm. And that’s why I’m sharing my favorite comforting beef stew with y’all.

This beef stew is seriously so good. Both the hubs and my little girl gobble it up. I love it because the long simmer makes tougher (and less expensive) cuts of meat delectable. I also love the nourishing ingredients: Broth, spices, garlic, veggies, grass-fed beef. Nothing but honest to goodness love in this stew.

Make some this week. I know I say it a lot, but your body will thank you.

    I’m in the process of cooking this right now. This is my first time cooking a savory dish with coconut oil, and I must say the moment the smell of the cooking meat married the smell of the coconut, it rocked my world. Now that everything is simmering, the delishous smell of spices has taken over the whole house. I’m so excited to try it!

    I had to tell you that this stew is a hit in my home! We made it for the first time this past weekend and my husband loves it! he is already asking me when I’m making it again :)

      Oh! I’m so glad. Sometimes I freak out when I post recipes… “what if nobody likes it!?” Makes me feel like I’m in junior high school again. :)

    I made this stew and it was nothing short of DE-LISH! It did have a bit of a spicy “kick” to it, but that may have been because I put in some extra pieces of ginger. Thank you for posting this; it was a hit!

    Can I make this in a crock pot? I am a terrible cook, actually no cook at all, but I am trying learn good and healthy recipes.

    This stew was amazing. The vinegar and paprika are so good in the broth! I will admit that I omitted the ginger, cayenne, and allspice, and also used butter rather than coconut oil (a few picky eaters at dinner and I didn’t want to put them off).
