You don’t have to make your own bone broth for this Paleo Beef Stew, but I highly recommend you do so. It makes the stew taste so much better.
Not to mention that keeping a stock of homemade bone broth in the fridge means you have something you can grab and heat up on a cold, snowy day. Bone broth by itself is almost as warming as this stew.
But if you can’t make your own bone broth, I’ve come across several places where you can order some! U.S. Wellness Meats has some available and The Brothery in California offers chicken broth and both will ship directly to your door.
Add Some Savory Veggies
Tubers must have been invented for the sole purpose of throwing in a big pot with some meat and broth or water, and sweet potatoes or yams are especially well-suited to the task. They add great flavor to the beef, as well as a dose of vitamin A and “slow carbs” (carbs that don’t cause a spike in blood sugar). Combine all that with a helping of mushrooms, and you’ve got one hearty meal!
Pressure Cooker Not Required
The use of the pressure cooker simply speeds up the process of breaking down the meat. It’ll taste like it’s been simmering in juices for hours when it only takes an hour at high pressure to replicate what several hours on the stovetop or crock pot will produce.
If you have the time to make this on your stove, great. This is a perfect recipe to make over the weekend and eat for days, especially if there’s a blizzard coming and you won’t want to leave the house to get groceries.
If you’re crunched for time, you can always make it in a crock pot on low while you’re at work. Then you have a hot dinner already waiting for you when you get home and that feeling just cannot be beat.
Once again, we bust the myth that cooking for yourself has to be time-intensive.
