EASY Crockpot Low Carb Beef Stew Recipe

In August of 2017 I decided to change up my eating habits and took on a Keto lifestyle. This is low carb (under 20 grams/day), moderate protein and higher healthy fats. Today I’m sharing a fantastically flavourful Keto-friendly EASY Crockpot Low Carb Beef Stew Recipe with you all because I’m always asked for Keto Recipes.

When I moved to the Keto way of life, I was overwhelmed at first but to anyone just beginning I say stick with it! I am down 50 pounds, have more energy and less inflammation and just plain feel better. Like any structured nutrition plan, this takes some preplanning and finding recipes the whole family loves certainly helps. This bad boy is super EASY and takes very little time which is a blessing because so much of what I make is scratch cooking and naturally takes more time than processed foods.

This recipe serves 4 and has 214 calories, 5 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbs (4 grams dietary fibre) and 27 grams of protein. This is a recipe that is Keto, Whole 30, Paleo and clean eating friendly and the whole family will dig it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb beef, cut into 1” cubes
  • 2 carrots, small, cut into slices
  • 3 parsnips, small, cut into slices
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • Xantham gum (optional)
  • as desired salt and pepper

PREPARATION

  1. In the Crockpot bowl, combine all the ingredients.
  2. Cook on low for 6 – 7 hours or high for 4 – 5 , or until the meat is very tender and falls apart.
  3. Optional step – leave the stew as is, or if you want to thicken it, use a small amount of xanthan gum
    mixed with water (much like cornstarch and water), to thicken the gravy. This step is optional and does
    not contribute to the taste of the stew.
  4. Taste the gravy for final seasoning adjustments. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
  5. Serve this on mashed or riced cauliflower.
    Enjoy!
