Paleo Beef and Root Vegetable Stew
Brown some good lean beef cubes. You can either buy cubed stew beef or cut a nicer piece into cubes for the stew. Brown the meat with finally chopped garlic and onion and other seasoning that you like. I used ground black pepper, garlic powder, and a touch of cumin. Once mostly browned on all sides place in slow cooker. Then add chopped vege: parsnips, mushrooms, carrots, onions, celery, etc. Add 2 cups of beef broth and 1/2 cup red wine. Allow to cook on low for about 6-8 hours.
I had mine with a side of steamed spinach, which I eventually just mixed into the stew and it was awesome!
PS: makes great leftovers for lunch too!
