An easy slow cooker beef stew recipe that makes a rich and hearty meal. This healthy stew is packed with vegetables and is safe for the paleo diet.
Place a medium frying pan on the stove and turn on to medium heat
Add the bacon fat to the pan and allow it to melt
Add the stew beef to the pan and cook for ~10 minutes (until browned), turning every few minutes to ensure each side gets cooked
While the beef is cooking, add the other ingredients to your slow cooker and stir well to combine
Once the beef is done cooking, transfer it and the fat it was cooked in, into the slow cooker
Stir the ingredients well to combine
Turn the slow cooker onto low heat
Cook for 8 hours, stirring occasionally if possible
Serve and enjoy!
Browning the beef first will ensure the meat turns out tender and flavourful. If you don't have bacon fat you can use coconut oil, butter or ghee instead.
