Method

Stew

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Pre-heat your oven to 320F.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Melt 1 tablespoon of tallow in a heavy, oven-proof casserole dish. Brown the meat, ensuring all sides are seared and browned. Brown the meat in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Once browned, remove from the pan and store on a large plate. Add more tallow as necessary.

    Once all of the meat has been browned and removed from the pan, add the bacon to the pan.  Cook, stirring frequently, while the fat escapes from the bacon. Remove with a slotted spoon, keeping the bacon fat in the pan.

    Next, add the carrots and celery (if using).  Cook in the bacon fat until softened.

    Add all of the beef back to the pan, including any juices that have come out of the meat. Add the beef stock, tinned tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir through the rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer.

    Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 2 hours.

    Remove from the oven. Stir through the peas and return, uncovered, for a final 30 minutes.

To Serve

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    Ladle spoonfuls of stew into deep bowls.  Top with chopped parsley and a sprinkle of orange zest.

    Delicious on its own or can be served with a side of steamed vegetables. For non-SIBO people or those who can tolerate it, mashed potato or mashed cauliflower is a perfect way to mop up the delicious stew juices.

Note

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    If not using celery, add an extra 2 carrots or another vegetable you can tolerate.

  • Herbal Leaves H1qygbnam

    If your stew has too much liquid, you can leave it in the oven with the lid off for longer until it achieves a consistency you like. If you prefer a wetter stew, you can add some extra beef stock before serving.

    You can use any high quality fat that you prefer if you don't have tallow.

    1. Hi Julie
      You can use any good quality fat that has a high smoke point. Eg. Coconut oil, ghee, lard, etc are all good alternatives.
