Snow is in the forecast, the air is cooler, and it’s still dark at 7:00am. That means it’s time for slowcooker meals that fill the house with delicious aromas and give you that warm, cozy feeling. Unless you have a fireplace, in which case I would suggest using that too, because fireplaces are awesome.

I used to make this beef stew ALL the time. For nearly a decade, I only made 2 things in the crock pot: corned beef (from the meat dept, in the package with the spices) and this beef stew. Except I used the absolutely not paleo version of the recipe, which is also known as the “original” recipe. Way back in the day when we were first married (seriously, how has it been a decade already?!), we received a cookbook compiled by a woman that my husband had known on his mission. That’s where the “original” recipe for this beef stew came from.

It was only recently, after purchasing some stew meat from the Primal Guys, that I remembered this recipe and decided to paleoize it. I don’t even know it that’s a word, but I don’t really care. Turns out, the only real changes I needed to make were to sub the white potatoes for sweet potatoes and leave out the cornstarch (not really needed at all). I also think that using parsnips in place of the sweet potatoes would be good, but I haven’t done that yet because I keep forgetting to buy parsnips. I always forget something (or 10 things).

Just to let you know, this recipe calls for a small amount of Worcestershire Sauce, which is totally not-paleo, so make sure you have a paleo version of the sauce. I have yet to make one, I actually used the naughty stuff (hey, I never claimed to be perfect), but there are a lot of good recipes you could try if you Google “paleo Worcestershire sauce”. I would really suggest not leaving it out, because it adds a lot to the flavor.

Another thing to note, this recipe doesn’t make as much as we’re used to eating around here, so for our family of 5 that likes crockpot leftovers, I double it. It barely feeds the 5 of us if I don’t.

  1. Hey Kendra, the link for Worchershire sauce takes me to Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, I know that Braggs has lots of uses, is this correct. I wouldn’t be surprised, just want to confirm.

    • Whoops, sorry about that. Since posting this recipe, I actually have a Worcestershire Sauce recipe, and it’s linked in this recipe now. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. Any recommendations for times in the Instant Pot for this recipe? I’ve tried “instant pot beef stew” recipes and we never like them as much as this one. I keep trying to figure out the times but can’t seem to get it right!
