Gluten/Dairy Free Beef Stew

Crisp fall mornings and breezy afternoons have me craving all the warm hearty meals that come with harvest season 🧡 It feels like I’ve been waiting all year for cold weather to make soups and stews! This one is so simple – just throw all the ingredients in a crockpot (or two to feed a large family) and leave it to add a delicious fragrance to your home for the day and feed your bellies at dinner time! Pair with a yummy loaf of gluten-free bread or cornbread and you’re set!

  • 2lbs of Beef Stew Meat
  • 3 large carrots sliced
  • 4 Cups of diced potatoes
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 package of frozen peas
  • 6oz can of tomato paste
  • 1 carton of GF Beef Cooking Stock
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 2 Tbsp Arrowroot powder OR Tapioca Starch
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Water

Slice and dice all ingredients.

Put stew meat in crockpot first, then add veggies (except peas).

Add beef stock and tomato paste.

Add spices

Cover with lid and cook on low for 8hrs or high for 5hrs.

In the last hour add peas, then mix arrowroot/tapioca with cold water and pour into crockpot to thicken.

Cool and serve! 🤎

Summer Squash Medley

This time of year, when Zucchini and Squash is plentiful, this is one of our all time favorite meals! Throw on a bed of rice or inside of a corn tortilla and this summery dinner is a family favorite 🙂

  • 1lb Bacon sliced
  • 1 Chicken Breast or Thigh in strips
  • 1-2 Zucchinis
  • 1-2 Yellow Squash
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili Powder
  • Smoked Paprika

Cook sliced bacon in a skillet.

When bacon is mostly cooked, add strips of chicken.

When chicken is mostly cooked, add veggies and garlic.

Season with spices and stir until cooked thoroughly.

To reduce the water in squash, slice ahead of time, line a big bowl with paper towels, and toss slices in with a tsp or so of salt, then let sit for 20mins to sweat.
