Sweet Potato Bison Stew

This is likely a contender for both the ultimate pre event carb loading meal and post race recovery food.  The balance of lean protein and carbs in a hydrating meal make this a winner any time.  It is dairy and gluten free making it easy on the stomach.

Paleo stew for endurance athletes and people who love food everywhere.  Makes leftovers.
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 lbs bison stew meat
2 sweet potatoes
14 oz skinned diced tomatoes
1 Onion diced
3 Carrots diced
3 Stalks Celery diced
6 Cloves Garlic minced
4-6 Cups Beef Stock
2 Bay leaves
1 tsp cumin

½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Fresh Cracked Pepper

Heat the oil in a large frying pan.  In a large bowl combine the cumin, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and stew meat.  Add the now seasoned stew meat to the pan and brown on all sides about 5 minutes.  Remove the meat to a large soup pot.  Add the bay leaves, tomatoes, garlic, and beef stock to the soup pot and simmer for 1 hour covered. 

Add oil to the frying pan and heat.  Skin the sweet potatoes and cut into bite size chunks. Add the sweet potatoes and remaining vegetables and soften for 20 minutes.  After the stew meat has cooked for 1 hour add the vegetables and cook on low for an additional 40 minutes.  Enjoy.

  3. I’m on a very low carb eating plan that allows real, natural fats and meat protein, but does not allow garlic, milk or flour. I’ve discovered since starting this just after Easter that I have a bit of a gluten sensitivity, too, as gluten causes inflamation and achiness in my joints. I’m willing to “cheat” just a smidge by using a very small amount of garlic powder, and I can certainly substitute heavy cream for milk, but I’m not sure what to do to replace the flour. Can it be omitted completely? Access the Dark Web Deep Web stories Deep Web Reddit Links Deep Web Browsers
