AIP Dairy-Free (DF) Gluten-Free (GF) Keto Mains Paleo Recipes Whole30
Low-Carb Beef Stew (Keto, Whole30, AIP, Paleo, GFDF)
January 17, 2020

Beef stew is one of my favorite comfort foods. When it’s cold outside this low-carb beef stew recipe is what I crave the most. You know, those blustery days when all you want to do is stay in your pajamas, wrapped up in a blanket, and watch movies. Those are the best days to have something hearty and warm simmering on the stove!

This beef stew is great all on its own, or you can make a lettuce wrap or cauliflower grilled cheese sandwich to go along with it (if you can tolerate dairy) for a very filling meal that won’t blow your carb budget.

This recipe really couldn’t be easier. You basically brown the meat and then throw everything in the pot and simmer until all the veggies are tender and it gets as thick as you want it. Which means you can swap out any of the veggies for other veggies or add in additional veggies if you want.

The key to making this low-carb beef stew super-rich and delicious with a deep beef flavor is to use bone broth, preferably homemade and beef tallow. I really like the Proper Foods for Life brand of beef tallow. It’s 100% grass-fed and I get it on Amazon.
