I’ve been on a low carb kick lately, and with the California weather cooling down, it was time for a hearty beef stew – hold the potatoes!
This recipe was one of the most flavorful beef stews I’ve ever made. It was a trial and error process. I initially added bacon, but quickly realized it was pointless because you can’t taste it. Thus, my beloved bacon has been omitted from this recipe. With so many flavors simmering together, the spices make this stew pretty awesome!
The slow cooker is my best friend. You mix it and forget it – for 6-8 hours on low. Who doesn’t love that? The only downfall of this cooking method is having to hold back the impulse to sneak a quick bowl before dinner time. Since I work from home, this can be very challenging.
Beef Stew makes for delicious leftovers. The ingredients marinate with the beef overnight in the fridge. When the stew is heated up again it becomes even more tasty. My husband raved about the smell it gave off as he heated it up in his office kitchen. I had to heat my share of leftovers up at 10 am. I couldn’t wait, I was hungry for it.
If you are looking for a low carb soup without losing flavor, then try this stew and let me know what you think!
