When I had just come out of college, I used to make beef stew all the time. I liked it because I could throw it in my clay pot and come home from work to a nice healthy meal that would last for days.

Because the climate is changing, I wanted to make this healthy stew again, but upgrade it to be lower carb. So this keto beef stew is plentiful, low-carb, gluten-free, high protein, paleo and super tasty comfort food. You can overcome that!

What’s in this low-carb meat stew?

I originally thought this dish would taste great with some pumpkin puree for thickness, rather than flour. It worked great and also added healthier nutrition to the stew.

I had also wanted to make this Paleo which means a stew without potatoes. Back then I had used turnips and parsnips instead of potatoes. However, since I’m updating this recipe to be low carb, I used the following ingredients:

braised beef (

  • or chuck roast
  • )Better than broth (

  • meat base) and beef broth
  • garlic,

  • thyme, salt, garlic powder and pepper
  • worcestershire sauce
  • carrots, onions, celery, mushrooms, green and yellow zucchini and green beans
  • pure

pumpkin puree If you want this stew to be even healthier, try using bone broth and grass-fed beef.

make this stew! So, to

make this delicious meat stew, start by adding the meat to the bottom of your slow cooker. Season with salt, black pepper, thyme, garlic powder, garlic and Worcestershire sauce.

Next, add all the chopped vegetables on top


For the sauce I only used meat broth, better than the Bouillon beef base and pumpkin puree


NOTE: I think Better than Bouillon REALLY adds a lot of flavor to soups and stews and I think it’s worth buying. If you don’t have any, you can substitute regular meat broth.

Mix these together and pour over the vegetables. Place on the lid and cook all day over low heat or for 6 hours over high heat.

I let mine cook all day until the meat was very tender and the flavors mixed. This is the perfect keto comfort food on a cold day.


hope you enjoy this healthy, low-carb meat stew as much as I do.
