Watch me make this recipe in the beginning of the vlog below:

To begin, sprinkle 2 -3 pounds of beef stew meat with 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.

Heat coconut oil in your Dutch oven over medium high heat.

Working in batches, cook the meat until it is browned on the outside. Scoop the beef into a bowl with a slotted spoon and continue until all of the beef is browned.

Bring the stew up to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer, and cover with the lid slightly cracked. Simmer for 90 minutes, or until the beef is very tender.

Monitor this as it cooks and add a little water if you need to. You want the broth to cook down and concentrate, but not cook dry.

Discard the cinnamon sticks, rosemary stem (if you can find it), and bay leaves.

Serving: This stew is very meaty. You can serve it as is or ladle it over rice, mashed potatoes, or Homemade Cauliflower Rice.

Enjoy!
