1kg stewing beef cut into chunks
1 brown onion
400g mushrooms, sliced
3 garlic cloves, sliced
1 tsp sweet paprika
20ml lemon juice
the zest of 1 lemon
a few sprigs of thyme, chopped
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tbsp tamari
1 can coconut cream
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
The Wholefood Pantry Tapioca flour
2 tbsp Beef Bone Broth Powder
The Wholefood Panty Himalayan Salt
1. Lightly dust the beef with tapioca flour, and a little salt and pepper. Shake off excess.
2. Heat a heavy based casserole pan with olive oil, and quickly brown the beef on each side (but not cooked through) to get those flavours going! Remove and set aside.
3. In the same pan, fry the onion and garlic until browned. Set aside.
4. Set aside 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms to fry at the end. Add a little more olive oil to the pan, then fry the rest of the mushrooms and thyme in batches to brown.
5. Deglaze the pan with red wine vinegar.
6. Add the beef, onions, garlic, paprika, beef bone broth, tamari and coconut cream to the casserole. Mix through and cover. Reduce the heat to low, and cook for 2-3 or until beef is tender. Ensure the stew doesn’t boil or the coconut cream may split.
7. Add in lemon juice, lemon zest and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper to taste
With the remaining mushrooms, fry in a little olive oil until browned on both sides and serve on top.
