The paleo beef stew is perfect for a cold winter’s day where you need a meal just not to fill you up but also warm you up.
You can cook this recipe ahead of time and simply refrigerate it. It will reheat amazingly well making it both great for those dinners where you don’t have a lot of time or as a paleo friendly lunch where you often don’t have time to make anything.
Another great thing I love about stews is that they’re great if you’re cooking for a crowd. This stew should feed at least four people and possibly even more if you have a paleo friendly side dish to go with it.
As with any stew don’t be afraid to be lazy when it comes to cutting up ingredients. Just cut into edible sized chunks, and they’re ready for whenever you need them. I also just wash the vegetables leaving the skin on except course being onions.

- Use a low-cost cut of beef such as chuck since we will be cooking the stew for quite some time which means the beef should become nice and tender.
- If the paleo beef stew is a bit too thick, then just add a bit of water. If you’re finding it to be too runny, then you will need to cook it for longer. Make sure you don’t have a lid on it when you’re trying to thicken it up.
- You can adjust the ingredients in this recipe slightly to the foods that you prefer. For example, if you like lots of beef feel free to add more! It won’t affect the overall outcome of the stew too much. However, keep in mind the nutritional information will change if you add or remove ingredients.
