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
Coconut oil
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
Reisling Wine

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.

This sounds really good. My son has soccer on Wednesdays so it's nice to do crock pot meals those days. What can I use instead of Pamela's Baking Mix?

You can use any flour. It is just to help thicken the stew. We are gluten free so that is an easy substitution.
