Coconut Beef Stew
I made the YUMMIEST meal tonight. I got the basic recipe from a friend online. Of course I added my own flair. Here is what I came up with. My family LOVED it. They had 2nd & 3rds and asked for me to make it again soon.
2 lbs Stew Beef
1 medium Onion or several shallots, diced
Pamela's Baking Mix
1 red pepper, cut into bite size chunks
1 - 32 oz can Fire Roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 lbs of Cremini Mushrooms, chopped bite size
1 can coconut milk
2 sweet potatoes, cubed
Salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbs. Thai Chili Sauce
Cut beef into large chunks. Season the baking mix and toss the beef to coat. Heat coconut oil in the cast iron dutch oven. Add onions/shallots start to caramelize. Add the beef to sear the outsides a few pieces at a time. When done add them to the crockpot. When all done de-glaze the pot with wine and dump juices/scrapings into the crockpot.
Add red pepper, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, coconut milk and chili sauce to the crockpot. Cover, lower heat, simmer for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
Serve over cooked short grain brown rice with butter.
