Keto and Veggies

Sometimes, people look at traditional stews and pot roasts and simply discard the idea of eating them because they see the carb count rising in their minds. 

Carrots did not cause the downfall of health in our society.  Plain and simple.  Carbs should come from veggies first and then from other things. A few carrots are not going to ruin the day.  

This stew has carrots, onions, and celery.  3 beautiful and healthy veggies!

Why Bone Broth?

The use of bone broth in this stew is not by accident. Bone broth is renowned for its health benefits. Its depth of flavor is unmatched, offering a complex base that enhances the overall taste of the stew. The collagen and gelatin found in bone broth also contribute to the stew's silky texture, making each spoonful an experience to savor.

Furthermore, bone broth's slow simmering process allows for the extraction of flavors from the bones, herbs, and vegetables, creating a broth that is both nourishing and deeply satisfying.

Beef and Veggie Stew Recipe Substitutions

One of the beautiful aspects of this stew is its versatility. Whether you're catering to dietary restrictions or simply missing an ingredient, there are ample substitutions that can be made without compromising on flavor.

  • Meat Alternatives: For those looking to replace beef, chicken or turkey can replace beef.
  • Vegetable Varieties: Feel free to swap out or add more vegetables based on availability or preference. Potatoes, parsnips, or sweet potatoes can add a delightful sweetness and thickness to the broth. Just be mindful of the carbs if you are following a keto or low carb lifestyle.
  • Bone Broth Substitutes: Vegetable broth or beef stock can be used in place of bone broth, though the unique richness and health benefits of bone broth are something special.
