As you are probably aware, there are many traditions out there involving New Year’s Eve and Day.

But I thought I would tap into my German heritage with this recipe. This soup is traditionally served on New Year’s Eve. 

It starts with your basic onions and garlic, sauteed for a minute in some butter.

Add in a good bit of stew meat. This batch was made with beef, but you could make this with pork or venison, or even a combination if you like.

Those will all slow cook together with some veggies, seasonings, broth and red wine for up to 2 hours.

When the meat is super tender, it’s time to add in some potatoes. Ordinarily you would cube up some yellow or red potatoes, but I happened upon these adorable, bite-sized potatoes at the store and couldn’t pass them up.

The baby potatoes went into the pot whole, saving me the step of cutting up potatoes.

And a little while later, you have a rich, hearty stew. This stew is easily made in a paleo variation, and I have included those instructions in the recipe below.
