Fit for a queen or king, this recipe is sure to be a keeper! Great for company on a cold afternoon or evening, especially great if you’re single and cooking for one or two… this stew will also liven up your gut! Filled with onions and peppers of any color, the red organic peppers burst with tangy flavor – simply  captivating!

That’s because I’ve laid out each instruction in detail (no, it’s not a hard recipe)… so you can be proud of serving this amazing dish!

It’s that good!

Organic Beef Pepper Stew

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons 100% organic virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, diced, organic

1 cup onion, diced, organic

1 pound extra-lean ground beef, grass-fed, organic

1 cup chopped celery, organic

1/2 cup shredded carrots, organic

2 bell peppers (we used red here), any color, organic

15 ounces diced tomatoes, organic

15 ounces tomato sauce, organic

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried oregano

 

Prepare Beef:

  1. Sauté garlic and onions. Put cooling oil in a skillet, on medium-high heat. Add garlic first, simmering in oil and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Add onions second, simmering in oil and stir constantly for another 2 minutes. Add a touch more oil to cover all the onions.
  2. Add ground beef. Dot it between mounds of onion/garlic, as shown below. This helps it to brown, enhancing soup flavor. This is the most important step, so be sure to stir the mixture every 4 minutes or so. Do not let it dry out.
  3. Discard fat. Simply scoop it out with a spoon. Some may prefer to rinse some filtered water throughout, then drain to get rid of all oils. Otherwise, most of the oil is “good” olive oil, so do not fear! This is why we used lean beef, right?

Fill Slow Cooker:

  1. Turn the crock pot on “low”, then simply place the skillet mixture inside: celery, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, tomato sauce, the spices oregano and basil.

2. Then add all the rest of the ingredients! It may look like a mess, but it’s not!
