Keto Beef Stew
Rich, hearty keto beef stew is a filling, nutritious, low-carb take on a traditional stew that's almost too good to be true... almost! Tender, juicy chuck roast is simmered in broth with carrots, celery, onion, and spices, then served on its own or with a helping of mashed cauliflower.
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chuck roast cubed
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil or other neutral oil, plus more if needed
- 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms quartered
- 2 stalks celery sliced
- 1 small onion sliced
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 carrots sliced
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste see Notes
- 4 cups beef broth
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
Season cubed chuck roast liberally on all sides with salt and pepper.
In dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons avocado oil. When oil is hot, add seasoned beef in batches, being careful not to overcrowd pot. Sear beef 2 to 3 minutes per side until all sides are browned.
Transfer browned chuck roast to large bowl and set aside. Add more avocado oil to dutch oven if needed. When oil is hot, add mushrooms and cook until golden brown.
Add onions, celery, and carrots to mushrooms in dutch oven. Cook veggies 4 to 5 minutes, then add minced garlic and cook 1 minute or until fragrant.
Add tomato paste, beef broth, thyme, and rosemary. Return seared beef to dutch oven and stir. Bring mixture to boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Cook, uncovered, on low heat for 1 hour, or until beef is tender. Serve stew warm, on its own or with mashed cauliflower.
