Serves: 4
  • 1 lb stew meat (beef or lamb), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tsp EVOO
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1-2 additional tbsp. EVOO
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1½ c bone broth
  • ¼ c dried apricots (chopped) or raisins
  • ¼ c cilantro, mint, or parsley (chopped)
  • 4 cups of either chopped parsnips, carrots, squash, or sweet potato (or a mixture thereof, but only use carrots or squash if following SCD)
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the meat with the 1 tsp EVOO, cinnamon, ground ginger, turmeric, and salt. Set back in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil and brown the meat on all sides over medium-high heat. Transfer to the slow cooker.
  3. Place chopped veggies on top of the meat in the slow cooker.
  4. Add more oil if necessary to the saucepan; then add the diced onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and fresh ginger and cook until fragrant. Remove this mixture to the slow cooker.
  5. Add the bone broth to the slow cooker. Alternatively, at this point, you can deglaze the skillet with the 1½ c of bone broth for an extra-flavourful broth and then add that to the slow cooker.
  6. Add the dried fruit. Stir to combine all ingredients.
  7. Cook on low for 4-5 hours.
  8. When ready, serve in bowls with fresh chopped herbs.
