Not My Mother’s Beef Stew ~ Allergy-Friendly

This is not my mother’s beef stew recipe! Honestly, I was never a huge fan of Sunday stew in the first place. Yes…we had it every single Sunday, and I would always get a miserable stomach ache after eating it.

It wasn’t my mom’s fault her stew made me sick; it was the package mix that had gluten and dairy in it. I’ve tried to find a good stew recipe over the years without using a purchased seasoning package, and they have all been pretty much blah.

Until I found this one…

I made a few changes to this beef stew recipe to suit my gluten-free diet and taste buds. We loved it, and each ate two bowls. It’s so nice to have one meal to eat and enjoy!

This gluten-free beef stew will also work for a yeast-free diet if you leave out the mushrooms and use yeast-free beef broth instead of bouillon cubes and water.

Here is the recipe I came up with using a large slow cooker. To Make “Not My Mother’s Beef Stew,” You Will Need These Tasty Ingredients:

  • Round steak
  • Olive oil
  • Onion
  • Celery
  • Potatoes ~adjust vegetables for Paleo diets
  • Carrots, sliced~ adjust vegetables for Paleo diets
  • Fresh mushrooms ~ omit for yeast-free diets
  • Rosemary
  • Bay leaf
  • Minced garlic
  • Green beans
  • Petite diced tomatoes
  • Beef Bouillon ~ read labels for gluten, dairy, soy, and corn products. Smoke n Sanity is gluten and dairy-free
  • Water
  • Tapioca flour ~ use regular flour if gluten-free isn’t necessary, and for Paleo diets, substitute with arrowroot.

Weight Watcher points plus count 5 points for each cup of stew.

I definitely must suggest serving this hearty stew with some incredibly flaky biscuits! They will not disappoint, but they will disappear fast.
