Keto Beef Stew
Soups and stews are on of my favorite things about the Ketogenic Diet. My husband is a huge fan of them, and thanks to my InstantPot and Slow Cooker, I find they're very easy to throw together. Basically all winter long, we eat soups or stews for 4-5 lunches/dinners per week.
Matt was a really big fan of this Keto Beef Stew.
He's a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so he was a huge fan of the big chunks of grass-fed beef, tender carrots, and and the perfectly-cooked baby radishes to replace potatoes.
The filling flavor of this soup makes it a hit on an average weeknight or a weekend when you have guests over!
When it comes to soups, I tend to view them more for their nutritional content than for how they taste. (Truth be told, I do the same thing with my coffee, but that's a story for another time)
Basically, my Keto Beef Stew packs a punch of nutrients – it will even help heal your gut!
You're probably pretty familiar with the health benefits of vegetables, but have you been using bone broth?
Bone broth is a superfoood in my book! It's benefits include:
- Healing Leaky Gut Syndrome
- Help with food intolerances and allergies
- Improve Joint Health
- Reduce Cellulite’s Appearance & Improve Your Skin
- Boost Your Immune System
- Sleep Better
- Prevent Osteoporosis and Strengthen Bones
- Supplement Your Diet with Protein
I use Ketologie Powdered Bone Broth because I love it's price, quality, and the convenience of bone broth in a powdered form.
Their bone broth comes in two flavors, Smoky Beef and Roast Chicken, and you can find it on their website: Ketologie.com
Why not saute with MCT Oil?
Notice that I used Olive Oil to saute the chopped onion, not my Keto powerhouse, MCT Oil.
I would love to use MCT oil in everything, but it's not good for cooking.
Because when you cook with MCT oil, it changes from the all-over-great MCT's to a Carcinogen.
Yes, heating MCt's turn them into something that causes cancer.
So naturally, I have not included it in this recipe, and please, please, do not substitute the oil or butter in here for MCT's.
(Side note, it is safe to heat up to 325 degrees, so totally fine to put in your coffee and stuff)
A helpful little tool I couldn't live without….
I don't usually promote products too heavily in my recipe posts – even if I love them – but I'm going to make an exception here because I recently made an impulse purchase on Amazon that I can't believe I lived without all the years (and through Whole30 too!)
What is it?
An onion slicer!
Basically, it's a specialized mandolin that has screens and a bottom tray made especially for slicing onions. No more crying while slicing – and it saves me TONS of time.
Yep, it's one more things to wash, but by the time I finished Whole30 I never wanted to slice another onion again, and this would have saved me so much time! Now, it's saving me loads of time in the kitchen while I'm Keto!
And yes, you can absolutely use it to slice bell pepper, jalapenos, carrots, celery and more with it too!
The tool will cost you less than $20, and you can get it on Amazon: Mueller Onion Slicer.
