Paleo Mushroom Beef Stew

For a beginner cook, recipes like this are the way to go when you are just getting into the swing of embracing the Paleo lifestyle. A solid base of a few flavorful, go-to recipes provides the starting point to enjoy eating without gluten while giving up your craving for over-processed foods – and the rest is history, or so they say.

Back to the mushrooms and the beef, mushrooms first. The mushrooms you select for the stew are your choice alone.

Button mushrooms will do in a pinch, though as you explore the fung-abulous world, you’ll branch out into the exciting arena of others as well: chanterelles, morels, shiitakes, oysters, creminis, enokis, portobellos, maitakes, French horns, black trumpets, hedgehogs, porcinos – just to name a dozen worth trying.

Then there is the element of beef. Choose a cut that is best for fast cooking, such as a New York Strip steak or ribeye.

If you are going to go all out with this dish, a generous piece of the tenderloin will impress the finest of diners.

All this meal needs is a fresh side salad, and you are in business; a creamy cucumber and chive salad is sure to hit the spot. Feel free to repeat this meal time and time again, till you are sure you’ve got it right.
