Delicious Beef Stew


My crockpot gets a lot of use, especially when it’s cold outside. How can you not like something that requires you to dump a bunch of ingredients into a pot and leave it alone? These are the kind of meals that keep me from running through a drive-thru in utter desperation because I have to be in 3 places at once. My beef stew recipe is precisely this kind of meal! I used a head of roasted garlic (mainly because I like it), but you can substitute it with 3 minced garlic cloves if you don’t have time for this. I would recommend tossing a few bulbs in the oven weekly, though. Roasted garlic is so yummy , plus it makes your house smell incredible! This is also great to freeze, so go ahead and make a double batch!

  • 3 lbs grass-fed stew meat
  • 1 tablespoon bacon fat or coconut oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 head roasted garlic or 3 garlic cloves minced*
  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup red wine I used 2 buck chuck from Trader Joe’s
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 3 sweet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 sprig of rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bay leaf


  • Heat fat in skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion until translucent and soft. Add meat and sear until outside is browned. Do not cook entirely!
  • Transfer to crockpot—Cook wine in a skillet for about 1 minute. Be sure to scrape all the particles stuck on the pan up!
  • Pour wine and all other ingredients into crockpot. Cook on low setting for 8-12 hours.


I like to put my crockpot on high for the first hour to get the temp up before switching it to low. I also want to make this at night and let it cook while I sleep. Then I change my crockpot over to the “Keep Warm” setting, and dinner is ready for whenever I feel like serving it!
* To roast garlic- take the whole bulb and chop the top off to expose the bulbs—place in a piece of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap up and place in the oven at 350 degrees F for approx—30 min.
