Beef Stew

(AIP, Paleo, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

serves 4-6

  • 2 lbs beef rump roast or stew meat

  • 2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tbsp avocado or coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms (canned or fresh)

  • 2 parsnips, sliced

  • 4 carrots diced

  • 1 white or orange sweet potato, diced

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp onion powder

  • 2 cups beef bone broth

  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos

  • 2 tsp dried rosemary

  • 2 tsp dried thyme

 

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle sea salt over meat cubes and brown on all sides in medium-heat pan with avocado or coconut oil. 

  2. Add in mushrooms, onions, garlic and apple cider vinegar to the pot. The vinegar will help to loosen the brown bits from the meat in the bottom of the pan. Mix in and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the meat back into pan and stir.

  3. Add the remaining vegetables, coconut aminos, garlic powder, onion powder, herbs and bone broth. 

  4. Turn down to low and simmer for 30 minutes or until veggies are tender. 

  5. Serve fairly warm.

Bone Broth Breakfast Soup
(Gluten Free, AIP, Dairy Free, Paleo)
serves 4-6
*Kid favorite*

  • 5 cups butternut squash, cubed

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, chopped

  • 3 cups Bone Broth (I prefer homemade)

  • ½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk

  • 2 tsp sea salt

  • ¾ tsp ground sage

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder

  • slices bacon, fully cooked

Instructions

 

1. Add sweet potatoes and butternut squash to a large pot, fill with enough water to just cover the vegetables, and bring to a boil. If you haven’t cooked the bacon ahead of time, you can do this while waiting for the pot to boil.

2. Once at a boil, turn heat to medium-high and cook until squash and potatoes are fork tender, about 5 minutes. Then drain and set aside.

3. Add the bone broth and coconut milk to the post and blend with either an immersion blender or regular blender until creamy and there are no lumps. 
4. Then add salt, ground sage, and garlic and blend to incorporate.

5. Crumble in your cooked bacon and enjoy!
