Comforting Organic Grass Fed Beef Stew, a wonderful, full of flavor, healthy homemade dish. I love the aromas coming out of the kitchen, all the different salty and sweet ingredients, and the outstanding comforting taste of this traditional meal.
You are what you eat and that applies to cows too. This is the reason why I choose to buy grass fed beef. Grass-fed has less total fat than grain-fed beef. It contains up to 5 times as much Omega-3! It also has more vitamin E and minerals like potassium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus.
A cow that eats grass is eating real food vs. a grain-fed cow who eats a highly processed grain diet full of chemicals and genetically modified corn. I like to think about it this way: I want real food that eats real food!
I served my Comforting Organic Grass Fed Beef Stew over Quinoa this time and it was soooooo delicious! I am as always trying to stay away from cans and boxes and this recipe uses fresh ingredients except for 3 tablespoons of Tomato Paste and Pacific Organic Beef Broth. Pretty good I think!
A litte prep time is needed to cut all the fresh vegetables. Then you need to get a little organized not to miss all the wonderful ingredients integrated in this Grass Fed Beef Stew. Olives, Currants, peas, carrots, potatoes, onions, tomatoes. Yum! My mouth is watering!
I have a Slow Cooker, but I decided to make this Comforting Organic Grass Fed Beef Stew in a regular pot this time. I cooked it for about 2 hours and the meat came out super tender and the stew full of wonderful homemade flavors.
